What we say:
At A Glance:
Fender's iconic Telecaster has been around since the early '50s and has been continuing to inspire and influence ever since. The simple and classic design may have been tweaked over the years but more often than not, it still comes back to the original 50s style model. This American Original 50s Tele acknowledges the greatness of that era by being as period-correct as possible. This is as close as you can get a to a new guitar from the '50s, down to the body size, finish, wiring, pickups and hardware, the attention to detail is exceptional.
If you're looking for a mint condition 50s Telecaster without spending insane money, this is the guitar for you!
Features We Love:
The guitar features a beautiful sounding ash body which has been finished in the all-time classic Butterscotch Blonde using period-accurate gloss nitrocellulose lacquer. Nitro lacquer is loved for its ability to let the wood breathe and also the fact that it wears in a loveably distinctive way. After years of playing your guitar will look and sound even more like a vintage classic.
Pickups and Circuitry
To create the period-accurate vintage tone, Fender have essentially recreated the vintage circuit verbatim, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, everything is as it was back in the 50s. The Pure Vintage '52 single coil Telecaster pickups take things further (or back in time) by recreating the fibre bobbins and alnico 3 magnets used at the time, giving this guitar that fantastic tone that's been featured on countless records.
Period Accurate Hardware
Fender wanted this model to be just like buying a new Tele in the 1950s, that means it features the exact same spec of hardware. Including vintage-tall frets, a 3 Saddle Vintage Style Strings-Through-Body with Brass Saddles and Pure Vintage Single Line "Fender Deluxe" tuners, each contributing their own key element to the guitar's fantastic feel and tone.
