A review & demo of a 2002 Fender Crafted in Japan Pink Paisley Telecaster. The Pink Paisley Telecaster first emerged in the late sixties. Initially the Pink Paisley design was only available on the Telecaster. Would you believe that the design was originally a wallpaper design!!!!
It was issued at the same time as Fender issued the Blue Flower Telecaster. James Burton who was Elvis' guitarist at the time was searching for a new guitar and he came across a Pink Paisley model. He wasn't sure if the King was going to like it but when he showed the King the guitar, Elvis was impressed.
Made of basswood, the neck and fretboard are made from maple. The pickguard is clear plexiglass with a pink tint around the neck pickup hole so that it matches the rest of the guitars edging but also covers the neck pickup rout and truss rod access cut out.
The Pink paisley telecaster are reissued with some regularity from Fender Japan and as of 2018 they are marketed under the Japan Exclusives range.
