Select Light Ash Wood Body
The Telecaster features a select light ash wood body, delivering a classic Fender twang with sweet, airy tones. The selected ash is incredibly lightweight, allowing you to play without feeling the weight of the guitar. The tonewood provides the guitar with excellent resonance and sustain, offering firm lows, pleasing highs, and a scooped midrange. The Fender is then finished off with knurled flat top control knobs, a 4-ply tortoise pickguard, gold hardware and a white blonde finish, creating a classic look that reflects its powerfully soft tones.
Maple Neck and Fingerboard
The guitars solid maple neck and fingerboard provides the Telecaster with bright characteristics, tightening up the guitars sound and giving it plenty of cut. The maple delivers a powerfully sharp punch when the strings are hit hard, whilst still retaining its clarity to allow each note to sing. The neck and fingerboard work together to provide the guitar with sizzling highs and firm lows, while its midrange features a snappy attack.
American Vintage ’58 Tele Pickups
The guitar boasts Fender’s American Vintage '58 Tele single-coil pickups in the bridge and neck, designed to offer classic tones with modern reliability and durability. Wound to precise specifications for authentic, traditional Fender tone and performance, the Vintage pickups offer bright tones with enhanced dynamics thanks to its alnico 5 magnets. The bridge pickup is designed with staggered pole pieces to ensure volume balance across each string, allowing the guitar to produce clear, light tones with an upper-end edge. The neck pickup provides sweet tones with excellent clarity, perfect for strumming and chords.
String Thru Construction
The Telecaster incorporates a string-thru body construction to provide improved tonality and sustain by transferring vibrations and resonance from the strings to the body. The vintage style bridge features threaded saddles that keep the strings stable, allowing the guitar to be played harder without it going out of tune.
Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut
Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the FSR Limited Edition Telecaster delivers an increased resonance and bright tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.
Limited Edition Series by Fender
Each Limited Edition guitar is only available for a short time, which makes it eminently collectible while also adding to its investment value. Crafted with many features normally reserved only for select artists and master-built instruments, these guitars are exactly what their name says - highly anticipated limited edition models.
The History of the Telecaster
The rich history of Fender guitars began with the Telecaster. An indispensable instrument, the Telecaster was the world's first successful solid-body electric guitar. Perfected after two years of development - and a name change or two - the Telecaster debuted in February 1951 and began its steady ascent towards the stage and studio. Ingeniously engineered with the ability to be heard both loud and clear, it was a marvel of simple design elegance and workhorse functionality. Its perhaps a fitting testimony to its essential original rightness that the Telecaster design has hardly changed ever since.
