The classic Tele sound and feel. Made more accessible than ever before. The Fender Vintera 50s Telecaster MN harks right back to everything that made the Telecaster so brilliant in the first place. Staying true to the specs of the original fifties models, it'll bring you stunning vintage sound and style - all in a package that's more affordable than ever.
'50s-voiced pickups bring stunning brightness and definition in every note. Their single-coil punch is perfect for achieving that early rock 'n' roll sound - after all, this is the guitar that started it all. You can also enjoy old school playability thanks to a slim "U" neck profile. With a chunky feel for easy chord work, but narrowed to improve comfort, it makes playing feel wonderfully natural. A classic.

The Telecaster. It's been around since the dawn of rock 'n' roll. First released in the 1950s, its uniquely bright, superbly raw sound has been a staple of popular music ever since. The Vintera 50s Tele has been designed to the same specs as classic '50s Telecasters. So as a result, it delivers all of the punchy, powerful tone that the original became renowned for. Whether you're after sharp, singing notes from the bridge pickup, or bigger, more dominating tones from the neck, this has got it all. Experience a legend.
Before the Telecaster, the guitar playing experience was a very different beast to what it is now. Often necks were overly thick and difficult to get your hand around. But the Tele's classic slim "U" neck changed the game. Bringing extra comfort but enough of a chunky feel to make hitting every note easy, it set an example of just how effortless playing an electric guitar could be. And that's the neck that's featured on the Vintera Telecaster. Music has never flowed so easily from your fingertips.
Quality materials are the key to creating excellent sound in a guitar. So Fender haven't compromised in the woods they've used to make the Vintera 50s Telecaster. Solid alder has been used for the instrument's body. This is a particularly responsive wood - a go-to in premium electric guitars - and accommodates every kind of playing superbly well. So whether you're playing deep power chords or sweet arpeggios, everything will sound wonderfully full and rich.
Fender have also fitted the Vintera Tele with a top class maple fingerboard. A favourite amongst electric guitarists, maple is renowned for its brilliantly bright quality. Sharp and focused, it's fantastic at making riffs and solos stand out. A pleasure to play on.
Everything about the Fender Vintera Telecaster has been designed to the era-correct specifications of the original Telecaster models in the '50s. So when you play one, you can feel the classic, iconic spirit of the decade surging through every note you strike. With a vintage aesthetic and hardware, brass saddles, and of course the wonderfully sharp rock 'n' roll sound delivered from the '50s-voiced pickups, every inch of this instrument is reminiscent of a golden age of music. And it comes at an accessible price, too. Because with the Vintera series, Fender are bringing legendary instruments to a whole new set of players. Be part of it.
