The 68 Telecaster from the Custom Shop pays homage to the era when young people did everything differently from their parents. Men wore their hair long. Clothes consisted of worn-out furs, brightly coloured Indian shirts and bell-bottoms. Cars, a status symbol from the times of the economic miracle, were painted and people made pilgrimages to huge music festivals where half a million people could gather. The shrill fashion did not stop at musical instruments either. George Harrison's "Rocky" Strat, which he painted brightly for the recording of "All you need is Love" in 1967, is unforgettable.
This model is also typical of the late sixties. At that time, maple fingerboards were still glued separately, even if the neck was made of the same material. The neck is slimmer than the "beaters" of the 50s and thanks to the compound radius, where the curvature decreases towards the body, very pleasing to play. The guitar responds Tele-like immediately, the tone is crisp when played dry and pleases with a warm finish. Of course, the hand-wound pickups are in the best position to adequately convey so much substance.
Since the mid-90s, Fender's Custom Shop guitars have been artificially aged and fitted with original components of the time. Even the old decals on the headstock have been revived. What was initially regarded with scepticism, especially by dealers, has developed into an impressive success story. On top of that, these are all top-class instruments, in terms of sound, workmanship and handling.
