Authentic ’50s Tele® Style

For guitarists who must have the instrument's original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series '50s Telecaster Lacquer epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Tele® style and snap. With its authentic vintage-style features and nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic White Blonde, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, "Ike for President," cars with fins, two-stepping western swing, a wild new kind of music called rock 'n' roll, and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.

    Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish
    Nitrocellulose Lacquer Finish

    Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.
