Used and abused to incredible effect night after night, in every style and all over the world, the Telecaster has been a staple in the music industry since the early 1950s. The left American Original ‘50s Tele from Fender carries on that blue-collar mentality with a beautiful combination of new and old features! There’s just something about a Butterscotch Blonde Tele that just begs to be played, and this one is a true gem that will meet and exceed the demands of today’s players.
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.
A legendary instrument, the American Original '50s Telecaster LH is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the foundation of modern music.
