The Fender Telecaster was one of the most iconic instruments to come out of the 1950s, and continued to be used throughout the following decade by a wealth of musicians who wanted that unmistakable Fender tone. The Fender Vintera 60s Telecaster Modified celebrates this era of Tele, drawing on a range of new finishes and period correct specs and combining them with some excellent modern features.
The 60s Vintera Telecaster Modified in Lake Placid Blue features a Modern 'C' profile neck along with a 9.5" radius and medium jumbo frets, to give a comfortable and more contemporary playing feel. The body is loaded with a set of Hot 60's Tele single coil pickups, which offer all the clarity and twang of a vintage Telecaster but with a hotter output! The full range of Fender Vintera instruments offer a new selection of vintage inspired finishes, with this model featuring a Lake Placid Blue custom colour finish. Other features include vintage style tuners, a vintage style three saddle bridge with brass saddles, period correct three ply white 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.
