Fender James Burton Telecaster Electric Guitar in Red Paisley Flames


Pre-owned Fender James Burton Tele in mint condition, as new! - Comes fully set up by our in-house tech

Like its brother, the James Burton Standard Telecaster guitar, the James Burton Telecaster pays homage to the legendary guitarist with some stunning looks to match!

Features include a basswood body with "fiery" finish, U-shaped '60s neck, three special-design James Burton pickups, special five-way Strat-o-Tele switching, gold-plated Fender/Schaller deluxe cast/sealed tuning machines with pearl or black chrome buttons, and gold hardware.

An original Telecaster master still going strong, James Burton influenced generations of rock guitar royalty with his perfectly phrased late-'50s/early-'60s Tele work with Ricky Nelson, and his later stints with Elvis Presley, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and many others only furthered his revered elder-statesman status. His was the first signature Telecaster model, and today's James Burton Telecaster is as fiery as ever, with three pickups, special switching, gold hardware, gorgeous paisley-flame finishes and more.
