The Vintera Road Worn 50s Telecaster recreates the look and feel of a well-loved original. Finished in nitrocellulose lacquer – prized for its natural tonal qualities and distinct aging patterns, then hand-distressed for an authentically broken-in look, this Tele delivers the bell-like tone and playing comfort you’d expect from a great vintage guitar.
For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated our favorite set of ‘50s Telecaster pickups using alnico 2 magnets for the neck pickup, alnico 3 for the bridge pickup and Formvar-coated wire throughout. 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-tall 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.
