This Road Worn '50s Telecaster comes in a CME exclusive Candy Apple Red finish!

Commemorating the debut of the iconic Telecaster, the Fender Road Worn ‘50s Telecaster is a near-exact replica of the instrument’s very first production models. Featuring a nitrocellulose lacquer Road Worn finish on a solid alder body, maple neck with 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard, and vintage-inspired hardware, this is the spitting image of a 1950s Tele. What’s more, Fender equips this one with dual Tex-Mex pickups that squeal and sing just like your favorite ‘50s hand-wound single coils without the massive price tag. That’s what Road Worn is all about.

About Fender Road Worn Series:

Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.

Those of us who love vintage understand the beauty of history and the instruments that bear theirs with pride. All the licks, lumps, and luster of time are boldly brandished as a catalog of a life hard-lived and shows hard-played. The Fender Road Worn Series honors these guitars with lovingly reliced models representing iconic decades in Fender’s history.

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING
- Our international shipping rates should reflect on the item listing. Feel free to message us directly for shipping quotes on specific items or with any questions.

- All shipping rates are for actual transportation charges and do not include VAT, import taxes, or brokerage fees, which vary from country to country.

- If you order contains Rosewood, or any other CITES restricted woods, your shipment might be delayed due to Customs processing standards that CME is subject to as the shipper. All orders requiring CITES documentation must ship to the buyer's residential address. If your country requires CITES import permits, please work with your local Customs agency to obtain these permits prior to shipment.

- Most of our preset shipping rates are for USPS International Service. USPS is typically less expensive than UPS, but their international tracking system is not as accurate. We ship guitars via UPS Worldwide Expedited unless you request a different service. Arrival times may vary from country to country. Some large items such as bass guitars, drum kits, amplifiers, and speaker cabinets may not be eligible for shipping via USPS due to size limitations. Some brands cannot be shipped internationally due to manufacturer restrictions. Feel free to message us with any questions.

- We are unable to ship to Russia due to the current trade sanctions.
