The Fender American Original '50s Telecaster Guitar in Butterscotch Blonde adopts the classic style that made this the go-to for so many players upon its release, whilst throwing modern day appointments into the mix for increased tonal stability and versatility. Since its introduction, the Tele' has helped to shape the musical landscape, in the hands of so many legends. From Albert Collins to Merle Haggard, Keith Richards to Andy Summers, there isn't a genre that remains untouched by the Telecaster's influence.

Legendary design

The Tele's single-cutaway body profile is instantly recognisable, and in it lies the heart of the Telecaster's readily identifiable tone. The American Original is built using ash, a strong, dense tonewood that is delightfully resonant and sweet sounding. The resulting tones produced have a sparkling chime across the high notes, with a punchy mid-range and confident low-end to ensure enviable treble with enduring sustain.

The Butterscotch Blonde finish complements the straight wood grain of the ash beautifully, whilst a resilient coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer prevents premature wear from affecting the finish. A 1-ply black phenolic pickguard protects against unwanted nicks or scrapes around the pickups.

Classic U-shape neck

Joined to the body is a maple neck, which is shaped to the 1952-era, thick "U"-shape to guarantee a substantial feel in the hand. The neck has also been treated to a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer coating to ensure a smooth playing feel along its entire length. Paired with the neck is a maple fingerboard, which is home to 21 vintage-tall frets. The 9.5-inch radius enhances the fret design to afford seamless string bends, whilst the single-cutaway body shape allows you to reach the highest frets with ease.

Period-correct tones

The American Original '50s Tele is equipped with a pair of Pure Vintage '52 single-coil Tele' pickups, which have been designed and built with unwavering attention to detail. From the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fibre bobbins, and Alnico 3 magnets, the pickups are as close to the original article as you can get. Control comes in the form of a three-position pickup switch, as well as master volume and master tone pots. Everything that you could need to get stuck into some sweet Tele' tones is ready and waiting for you.

Vintage-style hardware

The Fender American Original '50s Telecaster is home to the vintage-style strings-through-body Tele' bridge with three brass saddles, which create a flush connection between strings and body for superb sustain. The headstock bears pure vintage single line "Fender Deluxe" tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully so that you can bending each string to your heart's content.

Each model is supplied with a vintage-style hardshell case, so that your Fender American Original '50s Telecaster in Butterscotch Blonde can be kept safe and sound at home or on the move.
