Fender Vintera ’50s Telecaster Modified
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 electronics—this 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 vintage-style 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 S1 switch give you even more tonal variety. Series wiring makes this Tele sound fat, like a humbucking pickup, while the S1 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. Finally, it comes with a deluxe gig bag.
