FENDER OLD GROWTH REDWOOD 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 limited run of 500 pieces with the exception of two that would be limited to 300 pieces.
Second in the series was origianlly going to be called the Brown's Canyou Telecaster. Made from the salvaged redwood timbers of an old trestle railway bridge. Some Brown's Canyon Telecasters were actually made but due to the quality of the wood other supplies of similary aged redwood had to be found and the named was changed to the Old Growth Redwood Telecaster.
What Fender says:
"This is a lacquer Tele with the redwood body made out of wood from an 1890s Northern California trestle railway bridge. Comes with
photos and history of the bridge. Oil rubbed finish, '52 Hot Rod neck, vintage tuners, 9.5-inch radius with medium jumbo frets, '62 vintage pickups, custom neckplate."
