It is indeed extraordinary for us to have not one, but two of these beautiful 40th Anniversary Teles in the same week. We all know these guitars are highly coveted by many famous country stars.
This on,e as you see is in a beautiful Honey Violin Burst and weights in at 8 Lbs 1 oz. The condition is what you would come to expect from us here at the 'Elk. These guitars, as you know are early examples of the now famous "Dream Factory."
A limited production run of 300 were made by the Fender Custom Shop. These 40th Anniversary Telecasters had gold hardware, Texas Special pickups, a 4-way pickup selector switch and a figured maple neck with abalone dots.
100 each in tinted natural, translucent red and honey violin transparent. Keith Urban collects these, Clapton had one built especially for him after the original run sold out and Merle Haggard based his Tuff Dawg signature Tele on this model. In short folks, this 8 lb, 1 oz Tele is a gorgeous example of Fender craftsmanship at it's finest. It comes complete with the original COA, strap locks, strap, tags and case.
Ray and I are proud to present this work of art to you and if you have any questions, please feel free to contact us here in 'Elkland. That's what we are here for- to bring you the finest guitars and stories. We only do greatness people and you?
