Fender Vintera '50s Telecaster Modified, Maple Fingerboard, Surf Green
For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to modern features, we created the Vintera 50s Telecaster Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronicsthis guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.
For modern Fender tone we included a pair of Custom Shop pickups, kicking things up a bit with a vintage-style bridge pickup and fat-sounding Twisted Tele neck pickup. Twangy and articulate, they have the crisp, snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map. For modern playing feel, we added 21 medium-jumbo frets to the 9.5-radius maple fingerboard that sits atop the Thick Soft V-shaped neck. A vintage-style Tele bridge with three brass saddles gives this Telecaster its characteristic twang, while 4-way switching and the S-1 switch give you even more tonal variety. Series wiring makes this Tele sound fat, like a humbucking pickup, while the S-1 switch places the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool strangled tone. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
Features
ALDER OR ASH BODY

ALDER OR ASH BODY

Alders tone is balanced, with equal doses of lows, mids and highs; ash features chiming highs, well-defined midrange and strong low end. Both are classic Fender tone woods.

THICK SOFT V NECK PROFILE

THICK SOFT V NECK PROFILE

Based on a Late 50s V profile thats been slightly rounded, the "Soft V" neck profile has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel, is a bit thicker and fills the hand nicely.

CUSTOM SHOP PICKUPS

CUSTOM SHOP PICKUPS

We matched a Custom Shop vintage-style single-coil bridge pickup with a fat-sounding Twisted Tele neck pickup, for howling, girthy tone.

MODERN FINGERBOARD

MODERN FINGERBOARD

Comfortable for chording and single-note playing alike, the 9.5-radius fingerboard offers modern feel thanks to its medium-jumbo frets, while also making wide bends easier in the upper registers.

VINTAGE-STYLE 3-SADDLE BRIDGE

VINTAGE-STYLE 3-SADDLE BRIDGE

This Telecaster incorporates a stylishly classic bridge with a rock-solid string-through-body design and three brass barrel saddles for authentic tone.

FOUR-WAY & S-1 SWITCHING

FOUR-WAY & S-1 SWITCHING

We added a series wiring option to make this Tele sound giant, while the S-1 switch puts the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool strangled tone.
