A staple of rock and roll throughout the 1960's, the Fender Telecaster is where it all began for Fender, and it is a testament to its quality and versatility that it is still such a popular guitar to this day. The Telecaster has always been a platform for modification, with many players swapping pickups, parts and all manner of other features to personalise their instrument, and it is this that the Fender Vintera 60s Telecaster Bigbsy seeks to replicate, with plenty of classic Tele tone and the kind of smooth vibrato sound that only a Bigsby can achieve.
The 60s Vintera Telecaster Bigsby in White Blonde features a slim 'Early 60s C' neck profile, along with 7.25" radius and vintage style frets. The neck feels slimmer at the first fret and fills out around the 12th, and is without doubt one of the most comfortable profiles you will find on any Fender guitar. The pickups have been revoiced to provide as much classic Fender twang and bite as you could ever need. The full range of Fender Vintera instruments offer a new selection of vintage inspired finishes, with this model featuring a sleek see through White Blonde. The Bigsby B5 vibrato tailpiece adds another element to the instrument, with smooth vibrato that is perfect for country, classic rock and a range of other styles. Other features include vintage style tuners, a period correct three ply mint green 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.
