Equipped with a set of powerful vintage-style single-coil pickups, the Traditional 69 Telecaster delivers vintage tones suitable for a variety of playing styles. The pickups offer plenty of sustain to ensure each note sings, while its bell-like character and articulation makes the guitar perfect for creating epic solos and massive soundscapes. Use the master volume and tone controls to dial in the perfect sound for any situation, and flick between pickups with the 3-way switch.
This Traditional 69 Telecaster is crafted from lightweight basswood to provide comfortable and effortless play, while its unique tonal density delivers classic Fender tones. The tonewood's fat, well-balanced sound makes it ideal for a range of playing styles, offering excellent dynamics and definition for a focused punch and a muscular midrange.
The maple neck tightens up the Fender Guitar's overall tonality, providing extra cut to help punch through dense mixes. Its comfortably smooth feel and slim ''C'' profile offers an incredibly fast performance, allowing players to deliver beautiful leads and solos with ease. The maple neck is paired with a rosewood fingerboard, bringing softer tones as well as warm and smooth articulation.
Fender Japan was established as a way for Fender to market their guitars to the Japanese market, allowing for the creation of low cost Fender guitars that still possess the high expectations and build quality of their American counterparts. Japan is often considered to be one of the leading places in the world for guitar manufacturing, and although most of the guitars produced are not sold in the UK, the FSR series allows players to purchase an exceptionally high quality and unique guitar.
Fender's single cutaway 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. Fender Telecasters have been wielded by many of the biggest names within the industry ever since.
