Overview

The Vintage Hot Rod '52 Telecaster® guitar combines classic looks with modern playability and tone. Features include a satin-backed neck with a flatter fretboard radius and medium jumbo frets, Seymour Duncan® 'mini-humbucking neck pickup and a single-coil bridge pickup for a slightly darker sound, vintage styling and thin-skin nitrocellulose lacquer finish. An innovative new vintage-style bridge with three brass saddles now allows precise intonation of each individual string.

On its 1951 introduction, the Telecaster was a revolutionary instrument that would usher in whole new eras of musical innovation and excitement. Sixty years later, in 2011, it is an archetypal electric guitar with a long and storied history. The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster, and Fender is celebrating its 60th anniversary all year with 12 very special "Tele-bration" models that stay inside the Telecaster's famously elegant lines while offering the finest and most unusual takes on the instrument's past, present and future.
