Classic 50's Tele Sound, Look & Feel!

Pomona Avenue, California, 1950: the genesis of the modern electric solidbody guitar is artfully captured in this timeless collectible. Now made at Fender's state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico, the new Classic Series '50s Telecaster features an ash body, a C-shaped maple neck, and vintage Tele pickups.

Singing cowboys were electrifying country and western music in the heart of the great South (Southern California, that is), and the 1950 Telecaster was at the heart of it all. But it soon grew beyond its country roots to lend its signature tone to practically every genre of popular music. Because of its unique finish, knurled chrome knobs, single-ply white pickguard, and two single-coil Alnico magnet Tele pickups, this guitar was distinctive in both style and sound.

Fender Classic '60s Telecaster Features at a Glance:
  • 2-color sunburst

  • C-shaped maple neck
  • Maple fingerboard
  • 2 vintage-style single-coil Tele pickups with Alnico magnets
  • Vintage-style 3-saddle string-through-body Tele bridge

Worth every penny.....

I have always looked beyond Fender because I was more of a "humbucker" fan. However, I have been admiring the Tele's for a while and I cannot tell you how amazing this guitar is. From the size of the neck, to the volume and tone pots, it is just a high quality instrument. I have 5 other guitars that wish they could get as much attention as I'm giving thias beauty. Best choice I've made in a while. Not to mention, Sweetwater is amazing. Ask for Ray Leach, he is the BEST.
