A '60s-vibed Tele for the Modern Player

Featuring a rosewood fingerboard and comfortable '60s C-shaped neck profile, this Fender Classic Player Baja '60s Telecaster solidbody electric guitar has been injected with full-on 1960s features and vibe. A departure from the typical Tele ash body, this electric guitar's alder body gives you a fuller, warmer sound while retaining all of the sustain and cutting mids that you'd expect from a well-crafted Telecaster. When you plug in, you can expect a vintage-tinged, warm and edgy twang to leap out of your amp, thanks to a combination of '58 and '52 American Vintage single-coil pickups. Complete with custom wiring, this Fender Classic Player Baja '60s Telecaster solidbody electric guitar is destined to become a Sweetwater favorite!

Fender Classic Player Baja '60s Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • 3-saddle bridge and string-through-body provide classic twang and sustain
  • American Vintage single-coil pickups deliver classic warmth and edge
  • The Classic Player collection offers cool variations on timeless Fender instruments
3-saddle bridge and string-through-body provide classic twang and sustain

The original Teles came with bridge assemblies that consisted of three brass saddles rather than six individually adjustable saddles. Many connoisseurs of vintage Telecasters feel that the brass saddles - while making intonation a bit more difficult - is what gave the Tele that unmistakable twang. This Fender Classic Player Baja '60s Telecaster solidbody electric guitar is equipped with a vintage-style 3-saddle bridge for classic Tele tone and string-through-body for excellent sustain.

American Vintage single-coil pickups deliver classic warmth and edge

The original Tele pickups had more twang than any two normal guitars, thanks to single-coil pickups in the bridge and neck positions. This Fender Classic Player Baja '60s Telecaster solidbody electric guitar sports '58 and '52 American Vintage single-coil pickups, giving you plenty warmth and edge, along with that signature Tele twang. On top of its custom pickups, this electric guitar is wired with a special 4-position blade switch and a 2-position S-1 switch. This custom configuration gives you tonal options ranging from classic Tele to series and parallel out-of-phase tones, along with special fat tones and high-output settings. From classic to modern, this Tele's got a tone for you!

Great Telecaster

It took a while, but Fender seems to have finally made the perfect guitar, for me, at least!It has that great classic look, e.g., with the brass saddle bridge and slot tuners, but they gave a modern feel and wonderful rosewood neck. (The neck is a bit smaller than the original, '50s Baja - great news for those of us that may have had a hard time with that neck.) A raft of different tones from the 4-way and S-1 switch, but always that original Fender Telecaster sound on tap. And "Custom Shop Designed" (says so on the neckplate!) but Mexican-made Tele makes it obtainable for almost anyone.A+ to Fender for this one, and Sweetwater, too, for getting mine in my hands!
