The Fender’s Classic Series offers up a range of vintage models remade, to give modern players a taste of history via the medium of vintage-styled instruments, with period-correct details. Taking inspiration from one of the most important eras in Fender history, the Fender Classic Series '50s Telecaster showcases the decade of the model’s inception.
Out with the Alder, in with the Ash
One element that has remained totally untouched through the years is the Tele’s unmistakable, single-cutaway design, which here has been crafted from ash, instead of the alder that is usually found. This wood choice brings with it the bright, Tele tone you would expect, with exceptional sustain. The body is coated in a rich Black polyester finish, surrounded by contrasting elements, such as the single-ply, white pickguard, 3-saddle vintage bridge, and chrome, knurled flat-top control knobs and vintage-style machine heads.
Playability and Style Hand-in-Hand
Matching style and sound with the playability you would expect from one of the world’s pre-eminent guitar brands, the Fender Classic Series 50s Telecaster utilises a maple neck that has been finished with gloss urethane and carved to the “C” Shape profile.
Joining the neck is a maple fingerboard with a radial measurement of 7.25" (184.1 mm). in place of the more commonly used 9.5" (241 mm), and nut width of 1.625" (41.3 mm). This is equipped with a complement of 21 vintage-style-sized frets, while black dot inlays guide your way.
Voice of the ‘50s
Fender’s Vintage-Style Single-Coil Tele pickups have been fitted in the guitar to give the authentic voice of a vintage Telecaster. The usual controls, consisting of a 3-way pickup selector switch, Master Volume and Master Tone, give access to all the tones you’ll need.
