This Fender Champion is approximately 60s years old, dating from around 1957.
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 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 electronics have been replaced at some more recent point in time & we cannot confirm if the original pickup is still fitted - all shown in the photographs. The case is original & is in brilliant condition considering the age.
