1968п69 Red Paisley & Blue Flower Fender Telecasters

John Frusciante's Fender Jaguar
Fender debuted two new finishes in 1968 to appeal to the hippie movement. Paisley Red and Blue Flower finishes were accomplished by sticking patterned wallpaper to the bodies and spraying clear polyester over the top. The original Fender ad copy for these models was also given a hippie-esque tone: Paisley Red Pulsates with every beat and swirls in a blinding carousel of color forms and tones.
