Fender has recently introduced an interesting new limited series of guitars that are made from old-growth pine and redwood timbers:
RECLAIMED EASTERN PINE
The Fender Eastern Pine guitars revisit the earliest incarnations of Fender instruments, when Leo Fender created the first Telecaster® guitars from the very same tone wood. To maintain the natural beauty of the wood, accentuate special anomalies such as knots and holes, and allow the guitars to truly breathe, builders left the wood intact and unconcealed with the exception of a hand-rubbed stain.
RECLAIMED OLD-GROWTH REDWOOD
Because this batch of redwood varies in weight and density, each guitar projects a complex tone that is completely unique. To offset the antiqued elegance of the aging wood, Fender craftsmen enhanced each understated instrument with modern features for a true combination of past and present. The necks and bodies are also hand-stained and left untreated to accentuate a natural look, feel and sound.
