Overview

The Fender Road Worn '50s Telecaster is an electric guitar that delivers killer aged look, feel and mojo without breaking the bank. This is a Tele that was designed using 1950s specs augmented by Tex-Mex pickups and 6105 frets.

Like classic cars or your favorite T-shirt, some things just get cooler with age. That's especially true of electric guitars-they develop an unmistakable mojo over time that makes them look even cooler and feel even more comfortable than when they were brand new. In that regard, the Fender Road Worn '50s Telecaster is a true player.

Includes a gig bag.

I'd like to give this guitar a rating of 4.5 but it's not an option. First I�ۡ���d like to clarify that this isn�ۡ���t a beat-up Mexican Standard. The hardware is completely different, accurate to period, and appears to be American. The electronics are made to period spec. The pickups are Tex-Mex. The body of the blond-finish is ash, not alder. And the finish is ultra-thin nitro-cellulose, not polyester. I compared this guitar to a true Mexican Standard, to a Squire, to an American Standard and to an American Custom Shop �ۡ���52. While each guitar had it�ۡ���s pros and cons, this guitar suited me best �ۡ���� providing the tone, feel and playability I wanted at a decent price. And I can safely say from my perspective, it was a big step-up from the MIM Standard. What I really love about this guitar is the feel of it. You can feel the wood. The lacquer has been �ۡ��̏worn away�ۡ�ݕ�_ on the back of the neck giving it a smooth playability. And there is a subtle improvement in tone, which I�ۡ���m sure is the result of the better finish, better pickups and better wood. It feels amazing in your hands. It�ۡ���s a big improvement over the standard, thick polyester finish. In fact you can practically play it unplugged �ۡ���� that�ۡ���s how well the sound resonates. The sound is classic Tele. I�ۡ���ve found it to be quite versatile, though it really shines with a little gain. Mimics the sound of 70�ۡ���s era Stones quite nicely when set-up in Open G. And like any Fender, this guitar should be set-up by a professional. Makes a world of difference and corrects most of the problems I read about in reviews. Regardless of which model you buy, put a little aside for the set-up. As for the look of this thing, well some people hate the idea of a relic. Others love it. But to give the guitar a negative review because you dislike the finish is really foolish considering how well this thing plays. To me that�ۡ���s like giving a guitar a bad review because you hate the color of the paint. I happen to like the look and I love the way it makes the guitar play and sound. Glad I don�ۡ���t have to put 40 years of wear and tear on an instrument to get this sound. Now I do have a couple criticisms of this instrument. The first being the cookie-cutter relic job. The second being the average price of the guitar. Don�ۡ���t get me wrong, this guitar is worth it, but with the Highway One so reasonably priced, it makes it a hard sell. I found one for cheaper than the average and for that price, this guitar is perfection.

I was about to buy this guitar based on the great reviews I'd seen online, but to make sure it was actually good. So here's my opinion: Pros: The beefy "U" neck does resemble the old Fender style, and so do the tuning gears, which are pretty small. The pickups are OK not great, but good for being a Mexican made. Cons: The "worn" concept is good, but this guitar doesn't have what it takes. The finish isn't very accurate, and the overall quality isn't great either. Now my biggest complaint, the price. This guitar is worth almost the same as your american standard tele, and there is a GREAT difference between these. My advice, check out the american standard which is a little more money, but if you can spare it it'll be definitely worth it.

Best Tele! Period!

By GOTTFRIED BRUX

from Nashua, NH

I bought this 2010 heavy relic'ed road worn MIM Fender Tele in blonde. Blown away by the tone of this guitar! This makes American Teles look pretty bad. The look is awesome, the feel is amazing and the tone is unreal. It almost doesn't make sense. I have 6 USA PRSs and a Fender Eric Johnson Strat. This Tele is sounds so good that I don't want to play my PRSs. Great guitar!

smokin' after a set up or two...

By raymond warden

from Raleigh, NC

I was taken away by both the sound quality and vibe of this guitar. Playability for the guitar that I received took some tweaking. I readjusted the truss rod twice and setting intonation was a challenge. This aside, the guitar is one of my favorites and hard to put down. An axe with a very cool sound and feel. I got a Blonde Tele and the ash body is quite unique - it feels and sounds like no other guitar that I have or have played - love it!

I own it! Best Tele I have ever played!

By Rick Trotter

from Escondido, Ca.

I bought a 1974 Blonde Tele new in 1974. I still have her. The 1950's Road Worn is the best Tele I have ever played. It is light in weight, sounds awesome, tone for ever, and I love the big maple neck with the tall frets. I play in a blues band and this thing has all I could hope for. I simply cannot put this guitar down and I own 18 guitars! I am a seasoned player and have been playing for 35 years. I own a 1953 Fender Tweede Deluxe and a Hot Rod deluxe for gigging out... this Tele sounds great though both amps! I have my eye on a 1950's Road Worn Strat next.... I mean with both Road Worn's in hand, what more could I need.... I plan on selling my three other Strats if the Road Worn Strat plays and sounds as good as the Tele does.

Great Tele

By Joseph Lodwick

from New Orleans , La.

A very well made guitar . Get past the looks and try it you will fall in love with it . And again you don't have to worry about messing it up ( Like a very expensive Les Paul ) I play it every day , Then when I want to play my others I can be very care full with them. The tone is very warm playing with your thumb . Gea a pick and it comes alive on the attack . All I can say is that I love it .

More than meets the eye.

By Charlie G.

from PCB, Fl

Well i dont own one of these, but i played one at my local music store and could hardly put it down. First glance this thing was a total piece of junk and a bad buy, but the second i picked it up it felt just right. The feel is 10 out of 5, the tone 6 out of 5, yea it rocks! yes for the longest time i wouldnt even play one of these puppies but im glad i did. to the novice this is a bad guitar, but to people who no what to look for this is the real deal. I would deffinately play before you buy on a guitar like this. Check this thing out!!!

Why? Why not.

By The Realist

from NY

I've read a lot of reviews about how much people HATE this guitar. Why relic a guitar? Why not do it yourself? Blah. Blah. Blah. Why relic it? Because it looks beautiful to some. More beautiful than a thick new coat of paint and poly that'll never wear. So what if it breaks the rules. So did all the music ever played on a Tele �ۡ���� from the Stones to the Clash. You want a fair review of this guitar? It plays like a dream, sounds great, looks great, has killer tone. If you don't like the look, Fender has been good enough to make a million different Telecasters for every aesthetic taste. Let's get over ourselves and give these guitars unbiased reviews.

GREAT GUITAR!!!!!!

By Paul

from Fort MIll, SC

I've played this guitar at guitar center before. I was blown away by the ease of playability with the worn neck. I only played it through a small 15 watt marshall, it sounded incredible. Imagine it through a tube amp! Neck is great, pickups are amazing, over all the best guitar i've ever played, i've played Gibson Les Pauls through marshall tubes, this guitar could keep up!

Left a bad taste in my mouth.. no more fenders.. Gibson all the way

By Sworn off fender

from Canada eh?

i was at my local music store and i was trying to chose between this and a les paul BFG. i tried the fender first since i already had a LP but as soon as i started playing i didn't like it... it was the whole telecaster sound i didn't like, i was more bluesy than what i was looking for. so long story short i got the gibson and i wont be trying another fender for a while.
