Fender Limited Edition Vintera Road Worn 50s Telecaster Sonic Blue
Catalogue No: igFEN-0149872372
This limited run Tele from Fender sure looks like it's been through the wars! The Road Worn series guitars are such cool looking instruments, and this guy is no different. With a classic thick '50s U shaped neck, a 7.25" radius maple fingerboard with vintage tall frets, it feels old school, and it looks old school too. The pickups are wound to sound like the 50s pickups of old, and the guitar comes with a gig bag.
What they say
The Vintera Road Worn® '50s Telecaster recreates the look and feel of a well-loved original.
Finished in nitrocellulose lacquer – prized for its natural tonal qualities and distinct aging patterns, then hand-distressed for an authentically broken-in look, this Tele® delivers the bell-like tone and playing comfort you’d expect from a great vintage guitar.
For modern Fender tone we recreated the pair of ‘50s single-coil Telecaster pickups then kicked things up a bit by increasing the output. Twangy and articulate, they have the power you need for any style of music. The thick, fat-shouldered Thick '50s "U”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard 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 four-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
