1974 Fender Telecaster – Blonde with Maple Fingerboard.
Fender is the most recognisable and collectable brand when it comes to vintage guitars. In 1951, Fender introduced a new title for their ‘Broadcaster’ entitled the ‘Telecaster’. It’s elegant simplicity lives on into today and has thousands of notable users including Keith Richards, Jimmy Page, Bruce Springsteen, Jeff Beck, and many more.
Body: Ash body w/ blonde finish
Neck: Bolt-on maple neck & fingerboard w/ black dot inlays
Hardware: Chrome F-stamped neck plate & tuners, STB anchored bridge with three paired-string saddles. White 3-ply pickguard (non-original) and 3-way pickup selector & two string trees.
This has recently undergone a service and set up. As pictured, there are a few marks from playing, making this a beautiful naturally road-worn guitar. Nothing significant that affects sound or playability.
In our opinion, this is all original apart from the pickguard. All parts date to the early 1970s and the neck is stamped with a ’74 date code.
Overall, this is a very rare and collectable guitar. Not only is this sure to increase in value year on year, but also it can be an enjoyed investment.
Come along and have a play!

The Music Locker prides itself on offering vintage and collectable pre-owned instruments and equipment (the Products).
We take all reasonable steps to ensure the equipment has been inspected by a competent person in the UK to ensure it complies with UK safety standards. This may mean it does not comply with the current standards in the country in which it will be subsequently used. It is the purchasers’ responsibility to ensure it is inspected by a competent person knowledgeable with the relevant electrical safety standards within that country, prior to connecting to any live electrical circuit.
It is the philosophy of The Music Locker to keep all items as original as possible, only changing original components when absolutely necessary. This includes valves, capacitors, transformers, potentiometers, frets, etc. This gives the buyer the option of tailoring to their exact needs, and may mean that the item is not operating at optimum performance levels. Therefore, your personal preference may differ, depending on your circumstances (i.e. collector or musician), and you may decide to service the item in more depth upon receiving.
The Music Locker cannot accept responsibility for any costs of refurbishment to a standard different to the one advertised.
