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.
The Fender Vintera series of guitars and basses combine the best features of decades past to create inspiring and authentic testaments to Fender’s history. Fender have also created a range of “Modded” models that offer fresh features on familiar vintage designs.
The Vintera Series replace the previous Mexican made Fender Classic, Classic Player, Baja and Road Worns.
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.
