Product Description

The Tele is the ultimate do-it-all axe and has been since its release in the early 1950s. The American Original ‘50s Telecaster brings the original blue-collar workhorse guitar to life with classic tone and looks with a couple modern appointments to meet demands of today’s players! The thick U-shape neck offers a familiar feel that really gives the player something to grab on to. Fender has really found a beautiful blend of old and new in this incredible instrument!

The Pure Vintage '52 single-coil Telecaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 3 magnets. We even made sure the steel base plates are copper-plated, while the pickups' pole pieces are flush-mounted like the originals. The thick ‘U’-shaped neck profile gracefully fills the fret hand, while the 9.5 inch-radius fingerboard will feel familiar to any player. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware-including three brass barrel saddles-vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood ‘breathe’ naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way.

The American Original '50s Telecaster is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the foundation of modern music.

What is your opinion of this product?
Excellent workmanship, fit & finish, fret work and high quality hardware. The pickups are versatile, I play mostly 60s & 70s Rock, 90s punk, amplifier must be tuned of course for this type of music (no twang for me). For those who write their own music this guitar should be a dream to find your tone. Super easy playing guitar & lite at 7.0lbs. The neck is Nice & fat (Thicker than a Gibson LP Traditional). The tall narrow vintage frets & 9.50 neck radius makes all types of chords easy and bends will not fret out. String tension is fairly loose at 440 tuning. I have not noticed any major 'HUM' thru the PUPs when playing a Tube amp (orange/supro) at a healthy volume (70Db). As close to Custom Shop as possible for $1800 and worth every dollar. USA case and COA included. 'V' serial numbered. AMS No down Payment/No Interest, free shipping Plan ROCKS. I set my up with .009s and lowered the action, intonation perfect.

What is your opinion of this product?
Workmanship, Fit and Finish are Excellent, as close to Custom Shop as possible. This Tele is Very Light (7lbs), one could gig for 3 hours without Any shoulder fatigue. Modern updates are 9.25 neck radius, narrow tall frets, greasebucket tone circuit and grease packed vintage tuners. The pickups are Super quiet when played thru a tube amp with distortion at 90db volume! No twang for me only Rock, Punk and Harder Rock. Set up from the factory was better than excepted, Low action and perfect intonation, the large brass saddle barrels have plenty of adjustment available. Bonus items are a C & C American Made Vintage Case and Certificate of Authenticity. Would Recommend to anyone wanting a Professional Quality Tele for Recording or Playing Live. AMS Shipping was Secure & Fast...
