    Product Description

    To create the Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster Electric Guitar, Fender extensively examined the body, neck, pickups, curves and all the hardware of a handful of extraordinary vintage ‘52 Tele specimens. With its big maple neck, the 1952 Telecaster was a landmark guitar in Fender history, and nowhere is today’s re-dedication to detail more evident than on the American Vintage ’52 Telecaster!

    A premium Ash body with a singe-ply black pickguard and thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish in lighter Butterscotch Blonde gives the fat tones and classic looks of the original ’52 Tele. A deep maple neck with ‘U’-shaped profile and generously rolled edges and sculpted headstock volute for even more first-position comfort adds to the American Vintage ’52 Tele’s undeniable vintage feel, tone and vibe!

    Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster Electric Guitar Features

    • Ash body finished in thin nitrocellulose lacquer
    • Maple U shaped neck for the fat feel of the original
    • Long-lost recessed-top ‘barrel’ switch tip
    • Vintage tuner spacing for truly straight string pull over the bone nut
    • Vintage-style bridge with three brass saddles
    • Knurled chrome domed control knobs
    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, the 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, new 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 they had it right. Fender did the work, and it shows, because there’s pure tonal magic in each American Vintage instrument.

    My favorite Telecaster
    What is your opinion of this product?
    After buying this 52 Pure Vintage Tele I decided to purchase the 58 next followed by the 64. The craftsmanship on this guitar is custom shop caliber. This guitar is made and sounds like a telecaster should. There's a reason I don't purchase american standard telecaster. If you want the real tele tone do yourself a favor and buy the 52. 3 saddle bridge is what makes a telecaster a telecaster. I can't wait to add the 58 and 64 to my arsenal. Pull the trigger and get yourself one of these beautiful Fender guitars, you will not be disappointed.
