Exploring the Gold Foil Collection | Fender


collapse expand iconDescription

The Gold Foil Telecaster from Fender brings 1960s rock and roll style into the modern age. This ax pairs a mahogany body and ebony fingerboard with Gold Foil pickups for a tone that harkens back to the golden age of garage rock. Its retro design, from the painted headcap to white button tuners and chopped Tele bridge, looks straight out of the '60s. Yet with 21 medium-jumbo frets, the Gold Foil Tele plays fast and comfortably to meet the demands of today's players.

Gold Foil Pickups Provide Iconic '60s Sound

The Gold Foil Telecaster gets its name from the pair of Gold Foil pickups that provide its signature tone. These single-coil pickups recreate the crisp, gritty sound of 1960s rock bands, with a punchy midrange and articulate highs. From clean tones with a hint of natural breakup to all-out overdrive, the Gold Foil Tele covers the gamut of rock sounds from the era that inspired its design.

Mahogany Body and Ebony Fingerboard Balance Vintage Style and Modern Playability

While the Gold Foil Telecaster has the look of a vintage instrument, its construction provides thoroughly modern playability. Its mahogany body produces a warm yet focused tone that complements the pickups' output. An ebony fingerboard offers a smooth playing surface, while 21 medium-jumbo frets make solos and complex chords easy to play.

Iconic Telecaster Bridge and Tuners Complete the Retro Style

In addition to its pickups and body wood, the Gold Foil Telecaster employs several design elements to capture a retro vibe. A chopped Tele bridge with three brass saddles provides classic Tele twang and sustain. Vintage-style white button tuners, a painted headcap and minimalist controls keep the esthetic clean and simple. The end result is an instrument that looks, sounds and plays like it came straight out of the '60s rock scene.
