Product Description

Fender has designed the Road Worn 50s Tele with the battered look of years on the road and the scars of countless gigs. The irresistibly cool look of finish worn through to the wood, rusted hardware, a bruised neck and yellowing plastic parts are yours right away with Road Worn instruments.

The Road Worn ’50s Telecaster sounds, looks and feels like it’s been there and back, has more than a few miles on it, and then some. With authentic 1950s styling aged to impart a lifetime of wear and tear that has somehow made it get even better, it’s a must-have for the guitar player who appreciates broken-in look and vibe.

Fender Road Worn 50s Telecaster Guitar Features

  • 1950s style with aged/worn body, neck, finish and hardware touches
  • Maple neck with “C” profile
  • 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 narrow jumbo frets
  • Dual Tex-Mex™ single-coil pickups with three-way switching
  • Vintage-style string-through-body Telecaster bridge with three chrome “barrel” saddles
  • Worn nitrocellulose-lacquer finish
Narrow Jumbo Frets
Narrow jumbo frets are taller and slightly narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes.

7.25” Fingerboard Radius
The fingerboard radius is an important spec that describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument has a 7.25” fingerboard radius, with a more pronounced “vintage-style” curvature typical of Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60 and ’70s. It’s the way to go for those who grew up with vintage instruments or simply prefer the feel of greater fingerboard curvature.

Tex-Mex™ Pickups
The Tex-Mex single-coil pickups on this guitar are over-wound for tight, clear bass, sparkling high end and maximum output ideal for everything from soaring clean tone to earthy Texas grit.

What is your opinion of this product?
I really like this road worn tele. I have a custom tele and several strats. The only thing I've replaced on this guitar so far has been the saddles, which I ask my tech to replace, with Glendale compensated saddles. Tuning is now spot on, pickups sound great, and this thing responds like a great tele, and a familiar friend. I have no problems with the sound, but considered replacing pickups just to get rid of single coil noise. So far, it hasn't been much of a problem, and this sounds really good.

I love this guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I have the sunburst model. I love this guitar. You get the broken in feel and playbility of guitar's costing much more. Mine has the maple neck and it's very fast. The sound is classic telecaster. I recommend the road worn to any one looking to buy a telecaster. The guitar is perfect.

Overpriced and poorly made
What is your opinion of this product?
I was extremely disappointed in what Fender delivered on this guitar: sharp, jutting fret ends, very high action and an extremely sharp, ice picky tone. I have been spoiled by the Chinese made Epiphones I have purchased recently from AMS, which came with hard cases, buttery smooth set-ups and killer tones, all for hundreds less than this MIM that came in a cheap gig bag. I knew within five minutes that this was going back.

Fantastic Guitar!
Your general opinion of this product.
This is one fine instrument! The relicing was very tastefully done! The neck on mine is fantastic, not cheesy but looks realistic like a guitar form the 50s would look with years and miles of play on it! The fit and finish are spectacular! You can not go wrong with this instrument

feel the tone
Your general opinion of this product.
The key to Road Worn guitars is not how cool they look (and they do look cool!) but how they feel. Some people don't get the relic process and tend to focus on the looks, but the relic process all breaks in the guitar so that it FEELS like a well-played and older guitar and that is where it makes a difference. Most of us can't afford real vintage instruments and this gives us the feel (and look) at a much lower cost. Thanks to Fender for making my dream affordable.
