by Clingan Guitars


Step into the realm of guitar legends with this 1954 original Blonde Fender Telecaster, a quintessential piece of rock ‘n’ roll heritage. Its striking butterscotchy finish has gracefully aged, adorned with a history-rich patina that whispers tales of countless gigs and smoky sessions. The resonant ash body, coupled with a worn maple neck, delivers that iconic Tele twang and bite, capturing the soul of the 50s with every note. While the tone and volume pots aren’t original, the 1965 tone pot and the 1963 volume pot seamlessly integrate into this Tele’s storied life, adding unique character.
Under the hood, this Telecaster’s single-coil pickups bring the bright, spanky clarity that made it a legend, delivering crystalline highs and a warm, dynamic midrange. The maple neck, smooth and inviting, has been molded by years of passionate playing, and the fretboard invites you to explore every nook and cranny of its storied past. This Tele isn't just a relic; it's a living, breathing testament to Fender’s craftsmanship and the relentless spirit of rock ‘n’ roll.
Complementing this vintage masterpiece is a 90s poodle case, a snug and stylish sanctuary for your treasured Telecaster. Though not period-correct, this case adds a dash of retro charm and reliable protection, ensuring that your guitar is ready for the next chapter in its illustrious journey.
