Model Overview:

The Fender Telecaster has been an ever present fixture on records and in the hands of players since 1950, and its contribution to music has been profound. The original working mans guitar and the first ever solid body electric, it doesn't get better than a good Telecaster. The Fender Vintera 50s Telecaster in Surf Green is a modified Telecaster that draws on the models history with some improvements in both tone and playability.

The 50s Vintera Telecaster Modified features a thick 50's style Soft 'V' profile neck, along with a 9.5" fingerboard radius. The neck profile is based on a classic 50s Tele neck but with a more rounded feel for improved playability. By far the biggest upgrade on the 50s Vintera Telecaster Modified has to be the addition of a set of Fender Custom Shop pickups, with a Twisted Tele in the neck position and a Custom Shop vintage voiced single coil in the bridge, for true vintage bite and twang. The full range of Fender Vintera instruments offer a new selection of vintage inspired finishes, with this model featuring modern take on the classic Blackguard look with a Surf Green custom colour finish. Other features include vintage style tuners, a period correct black single ply pick guard and a deluxe Fender gig bag. 

The Fender Vintera range is the epitome of vintage style for the modern era, combining exceptional craftsmanship, and attention to detail with an affordable price point, exceptional playability, and timeless tone.
