For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, Fender created the Vintera ‘50s Telecaster.
Fender's '50's Electric Guitar Features
The Vintera 50's Telecaster has the coveted features that defined the decade - including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups - this guitar has all of the bite and twang that made the Fender Telecaster a legend.
For authentic, vintage-style tone Fender recreated their favourite set of ‘50s Telecaster pickups. Twangy and articulate, they have the crisp, snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map.
The thick, fat-shouldered “Early 50s U”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style Tele bridge with three brass barrel saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang, while vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability.
Other original features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and four-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
