The Fender Road Worn ’50s Telecaster recreates the look and feel of a well-loved original. The nitrocellulose lacquer finish— prized for its aging patterns and ability to "breathe"—is hand-distressed for an authentically broken-in vibe. This alder-bodied Tele delivers the playing comfort you’d expect from a great vintage guitar.

Fender recreated a set of its favorite Telecaster pickups using Formvar-coated wire, alnico 2 magnets for the neck pickup and alnico 3 for the bridge. Twangy and articulate, they have the crisp, snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map.

The thick ’50s U-shaped neck has a 7.25''-radius maple fretboard with 21 vintage-tall frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style Tele bridge with three brass barrel saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang, while vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
