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.

I love this guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I was looking for a telecaster and came across this one I loved the idea of owning a relict guitar I was skeptical after seeing some reviews about how the body didn’t have much wear on it but I was pleasantly surprised mine was perfect not so much wear that you question the price not so little wear that you question if it’s a relict guitar it’s plays and sounds amazing I look forward to owning this guitar when it really is a relic

This is the Telecaster
What is your opinion of this product?
I have had 4 other Telecasters and sold them all. I just could not bond with them, or they just feel right. This Road Worn just feels great to me and it's a keeper. I have others with Tex Mex pickups but they sound different as well. Great weight, necks feels good and beautiful look what more could you ask for.

This is a great guitar.
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!
This is one well made guitar which is fast becoming my number one! I wish I have bought this years ago! Once you buy one you will be hard pressed to put it down!
So far no issues! This guitar is perfect!
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
The neck is a nice chunky U! It is fast and very comfortable. The body feels like your favorite pair of old broken in jeans!
The overall tone is amazing! The bridge pup is a monster waiting to be unleashed. The neck pickup is sweet and mellow!
One word...perfect. This guitar looks like it is from the 50's. It does not look overdone or fake.
No adjustments needed. The action was set just right and the intonation was spot on! Fender just gets better and better!
