The Fender FSR Limited Edition Roasted Ash American Vintage '52 Telecaster Electric Guitar in Natural finish is a delightful model that resurrects the classic style and tones of a vintage 1950s model, whilst offering an outstanding playability that every guitarist will enjoy. By utilising original tooling methods employed on the '52 models, the American Vintage model is a brilliant of example of what can be achieved when preserving one's legacy.
Classic Tele' body
The Fender American Vintage ’52 Telecaster is built from roasted ash, which gives the guitar high resonance properties that translate into an enviable tonal palette to play with. The guitar sings with a bright mid-range energy, and boasts an impressive sustain where every note rings true. Shaped to the classic single-cutaway body profile, access to the highest parts of the neck is within easy reach. The thin yet resilient finish preserve the tonewood, whilst ensuring that ages gracefully.
U-shape Tele' neck
Fitted to the body is a sweet maple neck, which is shaped to Fender's U-shape profile to offer a substantial feel in the hand. Paired with the neck is a 21-fret fingerboard, which is adorned with black dot position inlays to guide your way in style. As you'd expect from a Telecaster, the neck and fingerboard relationship plays like a dream, offer a firm and unyielding support without becoming cumbersome or unwieldy. It is clear to see why players across so many genres adopt the Telecaster as their weapon of choice when it comes to hitting the studio or taking to the stage.
Distinctive Tele' tones
Equipped with a pair of American Vintage single-coil pickups between the neck and bridge positions, the Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster provides the same in your face tones that we've all come to know and love. Again, adopted by guitarists from pretty much every genre imaginable, the Telecaster offers everything from smooth cleans through punchy mids to searing highs. Control comes in the form of a master volume pot, and a master tone pot, as well as a three-position pickup selector switch.
The body is home to a unique 3-saddle American Vintage strings-through-body bridge system with brass saddles, which is designed to perfectly anchor each string to optimise intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to single line “Fender Deluxe” vintage-style tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision. All hardware has been treated to a chrome finish to complement the natural ash. Every model is supplied with an updated deluxe vintage tweed case to keep your guitar safe in style, whether you're at home or on the move.
