Overview

Fender’s Vintage Hot Rod ’50s Telecaster gives you the best Tele tone, style and performance of both eras—authentically vintage-style design touches straight from the 1950s and hot-rodded modern mods ideal for today’s players.

Premium features include an ash body; maple neck with D-shaped profile, vintage-style heel-end trussrod adjustment, and satin back finish; and a compound-radius (7.25”-12”) maple fingerboard with twenty-one 6105 frets, bone nut and gloss finish. Versatile full-voiced tone comes from a Fender Wide Range Special humbucking neck pickup and a sparkling single-coil Broadcaster bridge pickup. Special four-way blade switch with “barrel” tip delivers the bridge pickup alone, both pickups in parallel, neck pickup alone and both pickups in series.

Other features include a single-ply white pickguard (Black model) or Bakelite pickguard (Butterscotch Blonde model), two knurled “dome” control knobs (master volume and tone), three-saddle American Vintage string-through-body Telecaster bridge with adjustable brass saddles, Gotoh® locking tuners and locking strap buttons.

It is THE TELECASTER

By Serguei

from Moscow, Russia

I have been playing it for two weeks, and I am enjoying it. Being more of a Gibson man, I knew it would take me a little time to get used to playing it, but in fact it was not that much of a problem, although it does feel different, particularly when it comes to bending. The model itself is truly great, both in terms of the versatility of the sound it produces thanks to a 4 way pick-up selector and the look & feel. It is hard to make verbal descriptions of the sound, but to my ears this model gives you everything what Telecasters are known for: from that clean clanging sound to powerful overdrive tones. It is also just the right thing for playing slide. The feel of the instrument is really amazing: the maple neck just feels right in a hand, the quality of finish is top class. To sum it up, it is THE TELECASTER.
