Originally introduced in the early '50s as the world's first mass-produced solidbody electric guitar, the now-legendary Telecaster changed the world of music forever with its innovative design and great sound. This Fender American Original '50s Telecaster pays tribute to the game-changing instrument by blending classic '50s-inspired features from Fender's original solidbody guitar with modern-day touches, truly giving you the best of both worlds. A set of period-correct pickups ensure that this Tele delivers true-to-era sound. If you're a modern player looking for pure vintage Tele vibes, the American Original '50s Tele is a must-have addition to your collection!Classic '50s-Inspired FeaturesAdorned in a traditional gloss nitro lacquer Butterscotch Blonde finish, the American Original '50s Telecaster features an accurately-carved ash body, a thick 1952 "U"-shaped maple neck with vintage-tall frets, a vintage-style truss rod assembly, and a genuine bone nut. What's more? This Tele even comes with old-style hardware including a 3-saddle vintage-style bridge with brass barrel saddles and a set of Pure Vintage Single Line "Fender Deluxe" tuners.Modern-Day TouchesRather than employing a vintage 7.25" fingerboard radius, the American Original '50s Telecaster features a more contemporary 9.5" radius. The result of the modern fingerboard radius is that it offers smoother playability and a cozier feel in your fretting hand.Period-Correct PickupsIt's not enough that this Tele looks and feels the part... it has to sound the part, too! Thanks to a pair of Pure Vintage '52 Single-Coil Tele pickups that were designed to re-create the distinct vintage tone of its original-era predecessors, this Tele really delivers all of that authentic twang and snap of the originals.Features:Ash Body in Gloss Nitro Lacquer Butterscotch Blonde Finish25.5"-Scale 1952 "U" Maple NeckVintage Tall Frets, Bone Nut, Vintage-Style Truss Rod Assembly, Modern 9.5" Fingerboard RadiusPure Vintage '52 Single-Coil Tele Pickups w/3-Way Switch, Master Vol, Master ToneNickel/Chrome Vintage-Style HardwareIncludes Hardshell CaseGet your Fender American Original '50s Telecaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar Butterscotch Blonde today at the guaranteed lowest price from Sam Ash Direct with our 45-day return and 60-day price protection policy.
