  • Highlights

    Four-Way Pickup Switching
    Four-Way Pickup Switching

    The Classic Player Baja '60s Tele’s four-way pickup switch adds a fourth tonal variation to the standard Tele complement. Position four combines the neck and bridge pickups in series for fatter tone and higher output, creating raw rocking tone.

    S-1™ Switch

    For even more tonal versatility, pushbutton S-1 switching presents special pickup and wiring modifications. On this special Telecaster model, the S-1 switch is built into the volume control knob and changes the pickup wiring from in-phase to out-of-phase when both pickups are on.

    New American Vintage Pickups

    Thick "C" Neck Profile
    Thick "C" Neck Profile

    This Telecaster has a slightly thicker neck than most Tele models, keeping the "C" profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) that provides such a smooth and comfortable fretting-hand feel.

    Three-Saddle American Vintage Telecaster Bridge
