    Product Description

    The Fender American Vintage '58 Telecaster Electric Guitar harkens back to early 1958, when the Tele changed from its rather large U-shaped neck profile, to a still-large but more comfortable D-shape for its maple neck. Other spot-on early ’58 Tele touches such as a lightweight ash body, staggered bridge pickup pole magnets, solid steel ‘barrel’ bridge saddles, a single-ply white pickguard and more are all expertly re-created in the Fender American Vintage ’58 Telecaster.

    1958 was an important year for the Fender Telecaster because that’s when slimmer necks started appearing on the instrument, and when (in early-year models) string-through bridges with solid-steel saddles first showed up, magnifying the guitar’s prized signature twang. Fender researched and studied vintage ’58 Teles to make this fantastic reissue guitar.

    Fender American Vintage Series
    The American Vintage series introduces a lineup of original-era model year guitars that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life. With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, Fender American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender’s roots—expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it’s going, but also remembers where it came from.

    The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender’s best selling guitars. Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, Fender completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept—restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more—based on actual vintage guitars they tracked down to make sure it was done right. Fender did the work, and it shows, because there’s pure tonal magic in each American Vintage guitar.

    I don't think I've ever played a better sounding or better playing Telecaster ever. I bought this as a scratch and dent and they gave me a great deal on it. I did need to adjust the neck relief but this now seems to be the easiest playing Fender that I've had in some time. I only gave this product 4 stars because the pickup selector switch was defective, on inspection I could see the issue and able to make the guitar work but had to order a replacement part. The damage to that switch was so strange it almost seems as if may have been manufactured wrong. If you are a fan of Tele twang, this is the guitar for you, serious vintage-style tone. They even put in a paper and oil capacitor in true vintage style. This guitar is very versatile and has many workable tones. One of the best and usable neck pickups on any Tele I own. Neck is not as fat as I expected but is very comfortable.

    What is your opinion of this product?
    Beautiful to look at, even more so to play. The thing is built solid, no defects, playable right out of the box, though I did throw some .09's on it, and will probably lower the saddles here in the near future. The pickups offer some of the sweetest sounds I've ever gotten from my Deluxe Reverb. The neck to a couple days of playing to get used to. My other Fenders (random Stratocasters) all had a soft-V, and this one is, well, a little different. But I'm a fan now. Tone for days, and easy as hell to play. I had The Band's "Get Up Jake" on the stereo last night as I was playing along, and it was scary how much this sounded like Robbie's licks. And when I push the reverb and trem up around 6, it sounds like a waterbed. Absolutely beautiful. No other way to describe it. Yes, the price is up there, but this guitar will be with me till the day I die. No regrets at all.
