SN: US110173515 Weight: 7 lbs. 13 oz. After the Telecaster blazed a new trail through the 1950s, a new version featuring a bound body--the Telecaster Custom---was introduced in the early 1960s.  The '62 Telecaster pays striking homage to that guitar, with an Olympic White lacquer finish and white pearloid block inlays on a maple fretboard. On its 1951 introduction, the Telecaster was a revolutionary instrument that would usher in whole new eras of musical innovation and excitement.  Sixty years later, in 2011, it is an archetypal electric guitar with a long and storied history.  The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster, and Fender is celebrating its 60th anniversary all year with 12 very special "Tele-bration" models that stay inside the Telecaster's famously elegant lines while offering the finest and most unusual takes on the instrument's past, present and future.  Color:  Olympic White Body Material:  Alder Scale Length:  25.5" (648 mm) Fretboard:  Maple  Fretboard Radius:  7.25" (18.41 cm) Fret Size:  Vintage Style Number of Frets:  21 Neck Shape:  "C" Neck Material:  Maple Neck Finish:  Gloss Lacquer Nut Width:  1.650" (42 mm) Hardware:  Chrome Tuning Machines:  Vintage Style Tuning Machines Pickguard:  3-Ply  Tortoise Shell (8-hole) Pickup Configuration:  SS Pickup Switching: 3-Position Blade: Position 1.
