For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to modern features we created the Vintera ‘50s Telecaster Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius hotter pickups and updated electronics—this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.
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 modern Fender tone we included a pair of Custom Shop pickups kicking things up a bit with a vintage-style bridge pickup and fat-sounding Twisted Tele neck pickup. Twangy and articulate they have the crisp snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map. For modern playing feel we added 21 vintage-style frets to the 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard that sits atop the Thick Soft-V shaped neck. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three brass saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang while 4-way switching and the S1™ switch give you even more tonal variety. Series wiring makes this Tele sound fat like a humbucking pickup while the S1 switch places the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool “strangled” tone. Other features include Other features include vintage-style strap buttons chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
