FENDER OLD PINE TELECASTER
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the fender Telecaster, the company launched a series of 12 Telebration Telecasters at the Winter 2011 NAMM show.
Each of the 12 guitars would be produced in a limiuted run of 500 pieces with the exception of two that would be limited to 300 pices.
The fourth guitar in the series was the Old Pine Telecaster. Originally to be called the Indian Barn Telecaster, it was to be made from salvaged Pine from a 100+ year old barn. But again like the Brown's Canyon Tele not enough wood of suitable quality could be used so other sources of old gaed pine had to be found. Limited to 300 guitars
What Fender says:
"This Tele is made from old pine salvaged from a barn over 100 years old in Indiana.‘52 Hot Rod Telecaster neck (9.5-inch radius, medium jumbo frets), hand-rubbed oil finish, Vintage ‘62 pickups."
