For guitarists who must have the instrument's original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series '50s Telecaster epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Tele® style and snap. With its authentic vintage-style features and finishes, 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.
This instrument features vintage-style single-coil pickups that expertly evoke the sound and style of classic Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s.
The neck of this instrument has a comfortable "C" profile (the shape of the neck in cross section), sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel from Fender’s first golden age in the 1950s and ’60s. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.
With authentic design and performance that evokes the Telecasters of the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s, this model features an American Vintage telecaster bridge with three saddles.
