With era-correct pickups, classic colors and other coveted features from the 50s, 60s and 70s, these instruments have all the sound and style of the decades that defined them. Now, to extend the line in 2020, we’re introducing our popular “Road Worn” finish package to select models in the lineup. Exclusive to the Ensenada factory, the lacquered Road Worn® finish offers the weathered, worn-in look and feel that’s become a staple of our Custom Shop offerings at a consumer-friendly price point.
For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera ‘50s Telecaster. Equipped with 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 Telecaster a legend.
For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated our favorite 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 features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and four-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
