This Fender Champion is over 60s years old, dating from around 1951.
With a Telecaster style layout, controls are single volume & tone, with the volume in easy reach of the covered bridge, making it easy to perform volume swells. It's fitted with a single Telecaster style, bridge position type pickup which provides a fantastic tone with a snappy attack & zingy treble response!
Please note that some parts on this instrument have been replaced over its considerable life span - the tuning posts/machines & potentiometers are not original & it does not come with its original hardcase.
