The authentic '50s sound. Updated for the 21st century. The Fender Vintera 50s Mod Telecaster features sensational vintage sound, but with a stack of features that make it absolutely perfect for the modern performer. Starting with the classic tone. It's loaded with a pair of Custom Shop pickups: one a Vintage-Style single-coil at the bridge for sharp lead tones, while a "Twisted" pickup at the neck brings thick, roaring aggression to your playing.
And while the vintage tones of these pickups make them sound like they've come straight out of the fifties, a modern design means they'll deliver everything with excellent clarity. A special "thick soft V" neck profile brings an old school feel to the playability of this Tele, but has more rounded edges than a standard "V" neck for extra comfort. In every department, this is a guitar that's expertly crafted.

Vintage sound is incredibly sought after in the guitar universe. Because it's often these classic tones that have shaped some of the best music ever released. The Vintera 50s Mod Telecaster is capable of providing legendary 1950s sound to your playing. It's equipped with a pair of special Custom Shop pickups, both designed to provide an old school tone that's unique and distinctive. The Vintage-Style bridge pickup delivers classic single-coil bite, sharp and defined - and ready to make your lead lines sound amazing. A "Twisted" neck pickup adds extra thickness to your tone, making your chords sound huge.
The old school sound may be desirable, but the sound quality of the fifties certainly isn't. Fortunately, things have moved on since then - unpleasant crackle and unwanted feedback has been eliminated by the modern design of these pickups. Your playing will sound pure, clear, and completely as you intend it to be heard.
Experience tremendous comfort and a completely natural playing action. With the Vintera Telecaster's neck design, Fender have yet again blended the old with the new. It features a unique "thick soft V" shape that takes playability to the next level.
Traditionally, the "V" neck was a classic profile that you'd most commonly find on vintage guitars. Players who preferred to play with their thumb hanging over the fretboard found it perfect, and the "V" shape always provided a particularly speedy playing action. But the narrow, hard edges of these old neck profiles often made for awkward and uncomfortable playing. With their "thick soft V", Fender have maintained the fast playing feel of the "V" shape, but rounded off the edges and made the neck chunkier, ensuring maximum comfort while you're playing. So you can enjoy a vintage playing feel without the hand cramp.
Aside from the fast-playing neck profile, the Fender Vintera 50s Tele provides a wealth of other benefits that make your lead playing better than ever. A gloss urethane finish on the neck further increases your ability to play speedily by reducing friction and allowing your hand to smoothly glide up and down the scale. And when you are flying around the fretboard, making sure you hit each note will be a breeze - medium jumbo frets increase your playing area. Add in the sensational definition provided by a premium maple fingerboard, and you've got all the tools you need to play lead perfectly.
With a guitar this good, you shouldn't just be content with leaving it in your living room. Fender have included a deluxe gig bag to help you take your guitar with you wherever you go. So whether you're travelling to and from practice sessions, gigs, or studios, it'll be easy and stress-free taking your Tele with you.
