The Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster is an Ash bodied tele with features and specs based on the finest examples of original '52 models. This American Vintage Tele has an ultra thin 'flash lacquer' nitrocellulose finish which allows the wood to breathe for ultimate resonance and sustain. The American Vintage '52 single-coil pickups in this guitar have been specifically designed and wound to replicate the original 50s models, producing the ultimate vintage Fender tone.

American Vintage, The Ultimate Reissue

The Fender American Vintage series is the ultimate collection of vintage reissue electric guitars. To create this impressive series, Fender gathered examples of original 50s Telecasters from a wide range of musicians and collectors. These guitars were then meticulously examined and their defining features were replicated to create the vintage reissue.

Flash Lacquer Finish

This '52 RI Tele is finished with a Flash Finish nitrocellulose lacquer. A thin nitro coat is considered the ultimate finish as it's susceptible to turning smokey and ages naturally to give a vintage aesthetic. The flash coat of lacquer on this guitar allows its Ash body to resonate and sustain more than a guitar with a thicker finish.

Overall Quality and Period Accuracy

The American Vintage '52 Telecaster has been refined with great features through the body, neck and pickups, combining the best of other '52 Tele specimens to create the best of the best. This includes a big, deep Maple neck with a "U" shape profile, Ash body with a single-ply black pickguard, Butterscoth Blonde nitrocellulose finish, a more comfortable sculpted headstock volute and vintage tuner spacing.

The new pickups are named for their purpose - New American Vintage '52 Tele® single-coil pickups in the bridge and neck, with a three position pickup switch. The bridge also boasts Original Vintage Tele® quality with 3 brass saddles and a barrel style switch tip.
