Fender Vintera '50s Telecaster Maple Fingerboard Fiesta Red (MX21099694)
Weight: 8 lbs 0.8 oz
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.
