Whether it’s a quilted maple top, or a striking, one-of-a-kind finish – each model demands audience attention. So the individuality of your beloved Rarities guitar won’t go unnoticed. Fender are renowned for their masterful innovation of the guitar, and the Rarities series is here to show us that their creativity continues to thrive in the present day.
Vintage sound, modern versatility
From funk and blues, to rock and pop – and everything in between. The Rarities Chambered Telecaster’s vintage tone shines through every genre you throw at it. And it’s thanks to the carefully selected electronics that Fender have implemented into its expert design.
A hot, ‘50s-style bridge single coil brings the classic Telecaster twang into your playing, with an articulate treble response rippling through every note. In the neck position, the Shawbucker 1T. This sweet-sounding humbucker retains clarity and note definition throughout the entirety of your performance. But what makes this more than your average humbucker, is that it’s crafted to blend with the sound of a Fender single coil. So, your Tele will produce a beautifully well-rounded voice, combining the best of both vintage bite and rich, warm humbucking tones. How’s that for versatility?
Born to perform
Every inch of the Rarities Telecaster is crafted for performance. And it’s shows. A two-piece roasted alder body is chambered for weight-relief, letting you roam the stage with ultimate freedom. This lightweight body-design is sculpted into the traditional, single-cutaway Tele shape, presenting you with effortless access to the upper frets for those scorching solos.
But it doesn’t end there. The maple neck is shaped into a modern “C”, fitting perfectly into the palm of your hand. This way, you can play every riff, chord, and solo with total control and precision. Satin-finished on the back and glossed on the front – all surfaces of the fretboard and neck are distinctively sleek. What this means, is that your fingers will soar across the glossed fingerboard whilst movement of your hand will remain fluid across the back of the neck, ideal for fast playing. Put simply, the Rarities Telecaster won’t hold you back. Because, ultimately, Fender know what it takes to deliver a truly refined playing experience.
Maximum instrument security
An instrument of such individuality needs protecting. Which is why the Fender Rarities Chambered Telecaster comes with a deluxe brown hardshell case. Take your cherished instrument on the road, with the peace of mind that it’ll be in pristine condition every time you play. Preventing scratching, scraping, or any other damage to your guitar - the brown hardshell case makes transporting between venues simple and stress-free. No worries. No panic. Just the excitement of performance, the way it should be.
