The ultimate blue-collar guitar, the Telecaster launched a musical revolution when we released it. Quickly adopted by working guitarists who were enamored with its trend-setting sound, feel and unique style, the Telecaster laid the foundation for modern country, blues and even heavy metal (in Jimmy Page's hands). The American Original '50s Telecaster LH has all of the authentic Fender touches that made the Telecaster a star of the studio and stage, while adding modern feel and pickup switching to this classic guitar. The Pure Vintage '52 single-coil Telecaster pickups are as period-correct as possible, from the enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fiber bobbins and alnico 3 magnets.Ash body with lacquer finishTwo Pure Vintage '52 single-coil Telecaster pickupsThick U -shaped neck profile; 9.5 -radius fingerboardVintage-style hardware; Telecaster bridge with three brass barrel saddlesIncludes vintage-style hardshell caseWe even made sure the steel base plates are copper-plated, while the pickups' pole pieces are flush-mounted like the originals. The thick U -shaped neck profile gracefully fills the fret hand, while the 9.5 -radius fingerboard will feel familiar to any player. Other authentic touches include vintage-tall frets, original-era body radii, vintage-style hardware-including three brass barrel saddles-vintage-style hardshell case and a lacquer finish that not only lets the wood breathe naturally with resonant tone, it also wears in a distinctively appealing way. A legendary instrument, the American Original '50s Telecaster LH is the best way to experience the performance, style and tone that made Fender the foundation of modern music.Lacquer FinishThe nitrocellulose lacquer finish not only lets the body breathe with its true tonal character, it also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.Pure Vintage '52 PickupsAmerican Original instruments feature specially voiced pickups crafted to reproduce the authentic sound and performance of individual model years.Thick U Neck ShapeThis Telecaster features a U -shaped neck profile for the substantial fret-hand feel typical of instruments from our original decade.Vintage-Accurate Body And Neck RadiiOriginal-era fans can rest assured every curve and line of the body and neck are accurate to the historic originals.Vintage-Correct HardwareFrom the bridge to the string tree and tuning machines, every piece of hardware is just like the original.Fingerboard & FretsThis 9.5 -radius fingerboard is slightly flatter than a vintage-style 7.25 radius, providing a comfortable fret-hand feel. Vintage-tall frets make it easier to bend notes without fretting out.Includes: Fender American Original '50s Telecaster 6-String Left Handed Electric Guitar - Vintage-Style Hardshell Case - Fender 2 Year Limited WarrantySpecifications: Body Material: AshBody Finish: Gloss Nitrocellulose LacquerBody Shape: TelecasterNeck Material: MapleNeck Finish: Gloss Nitrocellulose LacquerNeck Shape: 1952 UScale Length: 25.5 (64.77cm)Fingerboard Material: MapleFingerboard Radius: 9.5 (24.13cm)Number of Frets: 21Fret Size: Vintage TallNut Material: BoneNut Width: 1.65 (4.19cm)Position Inlays: Black DotsTruss Rod: Vintage-Style Heel AdjustTruss Rod Nut: Vintage-Style SlottedBridge Pickup: Pure Vintage '52 Single-Coil TeleNeck Pickup: Pure Vintage '52 Single-Coil TeleControls: Master Volume
