This Tele Gives You the Best of Old and New

The Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Telecaster gives you the best of old and new. If you like vintage Teles infused with modern enhancements, here it is. This Tele looks the part, with its ash body and black Bakelite pickguard. But with its beefy Wide Range Special humbucker, sparkling Broadcaster single-coil bridge pickup, and 4-way blade switch, this solidbody guitar is packing serious tone artillery. A D-profile maple neck, compound-radius maple fingerboard, and 6105 frets give the Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Telecaster buttery playability you'll find addictive.

Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Telecaster at a Glance:
  • Playability you'll find addictive
  • Hot-rodded electronics give you access to truckloads of tone
  • Vintage Hot Rod Series — vintage vibe, juiced with cool modern touches
Playability you'll find addictive

You get premium playability from the Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Telecaster, especially if you're a fan of thicker vintage-style necks. This one's sporting a satisfying D-profile maple neck, but that's only the beginning. You also get a compound-radius maple fingerboard with 21 narrow-jumbo 6105 frets — how's that for hot-rodded? Down low, your fretting hand will appreciate the 7.25" radius that keeps things nice and comfortable for natural, relaxed chord work. Up top, a 12" radius lays it all out flat for effortless, low-action high-speed runs with monumental string bends without fretting out. The best of both worlds.

Hot-rodded electronics give you access to truckloads of tone

The Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Tele's packing heat. A Fender Wide Range Special humbucker in the neck position delivers a broad tonal spectrum from mellow to full shred, while the single-coil Broadcaster bridge pickup serves up that inimitable Tele twang and bite. A special 4-way blade switch gives you an expanded tonal palette, with the bridge pickup by itself, both pickups in parallel, the neck pickup alone, and both pickups in series.

Vintage Hot Rod Series — vintage vibe, juiced with cool modern touches

If you want a guitar with vintage feel and looks, along with modern tonal capabilities and playability enhancements, Sweetwater's got your axe. The Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Tele gives you vintage visuals, a played-in feel, and powerful functionality and versatility. The guitar even wears a gorgeous nitrocellulose lacquer finish. Nitro finishes (standard back in the day) are significantly thinner than today's polyurethane finishes, allowing the instrument to breathe. Nitro finishes not only look authentically vintage — they also enhance the instrument's tonal qualities. If you've ever pined for the feeling you can only get from playing a great-sounding, lived-in axe but want a new instrument, this is it.

Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Telecaster Features:
  • Ash body and black Bakelite pickguard, for real-deal '50s visuals
  • Substantial D-profile maple neck feels great in your hand
  • Compound-radius (7.25"-12") maple fingerboard with 6105 frets is ideal for both rhythm and lead work
  • Nitro finish looks authentically vintage and enhances the instrument's tonal qualities
  • Fender Wide Range Special humbucker (neck) delivers a broad tonal spectrum from mellow to full shred
  • Single-coil Broadcaster bridge pickup serves up that inimitable Tele twang and bite

  • Hardshell case included
Fender's Vintage Hot Rod '50s Telecaster looks, sounds, and plays like a dream!
