Fender Classic Series, 50s Telecaster Lacquer, Maple Neck and Fingerboard, 2-Color Sunburst Finish, Includes Vintage Tweed Hard Case
Few guitars helped shape more styles of music in the 50s and 60s than the Telecaster guitar. That signature Tele twang is almost instantly recognisable to anybody who has heard the instrument before, and those clear, precise tones made the Telecaster a firm favourite with guitarists from all-genres of music at the time, with many styles continuing to adopt that sound even today.

50s Era Telecaster Reissue
The Fender Classic Series 50s Telecaster Lacquer perfectly captures and recreates the original-era tone, look and feel of those game-changing solid-bodied electric guitars. With a host of vintage-style features, even down to an original-era 2-colour Sunburst finish, the Classic Series 50s Telecaster is a must-have for enthusiasts of that unmistakable early Tele style and snap.

Vintage-Style Single-Coil Pickups

The classic warmth and edge of that prized Telecaster twang is thanks largely to the incredible single-coil pickups it plays host to. These vintage-style pickups perfect capture all of the tone and twanng of those original-era instruments, making the guitar perfect for any style where bright, clean articulation is a necessity.

"C" Neck Profile

The remarkably comfortable "C" neck profile is one of the more popular neck shapes on the market, and has been for the past 6 decades. This particular neck has been specially sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel that's reminiscent of Fender's golden age of the 50s and 60s, and is ideal for all playing styles.

Vintage-Style Three-Saddle Telecaster Bridge

Just like those golden-age Telecasters of the 1950s and 1960s, the Fender Classic Series 50s Telecaster comes complete with a vintage-style three-saddle bridge. The performance of this bridge evokes the Tele's of the 50s and 60s, and features a "Strings-Through-Body" design that offers a superior amount of tuning stability.
