More about American Vintage '64 Telecaster®

Die American Vintage Series umfasst eine völlig neue Auswahl zeitgenössischer Gitarrenmodelle, die die Geschichte und das Erbe von Fender hautnah zu neuem Leben erwecken. Mit ihren Ausstattungsmerkmalen und den zentralen Designelementen der 1950er und 1960er Jahre kehren die neuen Modelle der American Vintage Series zu den Wurzeln von Fender zurück. Sie bewahren das Erbe einer innovativen US-amerikanischen Gitarrenschmiede und zeigen so deutlich wie noch nie, dass Fender nicht nur kompetent in die Zukunft schreitet, sondern sich auch seiner Wurzeln bewusst ist.

Die Modelle der American Vintage Series gehören schon seit Langem zu den meistverkauftesten Gitarren aus dem Hause Fender (die Einführung der Serie in den 1980er Jahren war das erste Lebenszeichen von Fender nach dem Ende der CBS-Ära). Heute hat Fender reinen Tisch gemacht und ebnet den Weg für eine neue American Vintage Serie mit neuen Features, neuen Spezifikationen und höchster Detailtreue. Anstatt die alten Modelle der Serie einfach durch andere zu ersetzen, haben wir einfach gleich das gesamte Vintage-Reissue-Konzept auf den Kopf gestellt. So kommen wieder die ursprünglichen Gusswerkzeuge zum Einsatz sowie neu abgestimmte Pickups, neuformulierte zeitgenössische Farben und vieles mehr. Als Vorlage dienten echte Vintage-Schätze, die wir ausfindig gemacht haben, um die größtmögliche Authentizität sicherzustellen. Wir haben unsere Hausaufgaben gemacht und unsere Arbeit trägt nun ihre Früchte: Ein wahrlich magischer Sound in jedem American Vintage Modell.

Das Jahr 1964 war für die Pop-Musik von immenser Bedeutung. Auch für die Telecaster war dies ein Schlüsseljahr, wie anhand der American Vintage '64 Telecaster zu sehen ist. Die dickeren Ahornhälse der 1950er und früher 1960er Jahre wichen nun den deutlich abgerundeten C-förmigen Profilen, die nun mit einem runden, dunklen Palisandergriffbrett (curved board) und größeren „Pearl Dot”-Inlays aufwarten. Andere zeitgenössische Merkmale sind unter anderem der leichte Korpus aus Erle (Esche beim Modell in „White Blonde”), die die unterschiedlichen hohen Magneten (staggered polepieces) des Steg-Pickups, „Barrel”-Saitenreiter aus Gewindestahl, das dreilagige 8-Loch-Pickguard in Weiß, der „Top-Hat”-Switchtip, gerändelte „Flat-Top”- Chrom Potiknöpfe und vieles mehr.

What can I say? I simply love this Tele! The pickups on this thing have the 'perfect' Fender tone qualities I've been looking for, for a long time!
The sound is crystal clear and smoking hot. To me, the '64 represents the best of the pristine tonal qualities of the '52 Vintage Reissue with a hotter edge that fits everything rock, blues, and into a contemporary market. I'm a Fender fan-boy, but this is the guitar I've not been able to find, until now! The rest of the instrument is perfect as well. The 60's style "C" neck gives you something to hold onto without being too much...I have a 7" hand (from wrist to end of middle finger) and this neck fits me with style. Also, I happen to be a fan of the bridge cover...it's nice to let my lazy wrist rest on it from time to time as I play. This is a winner and I wish I could give it more than 5's!

I picked up a Lake Placid Blue version of this out of the box classic. I'll start with the case because this site should show the cases too! I have some cool guitars with ugly cases. The case is light brown vintage looking but new, not relected, with gold hinges and lock snaps. The inside is also gold, very rich looking, very clean. You also get a real leather guitar strap, not that plastic crap. In my opinion this makes any other case I've seen look cheap and tacky. Now the guitar. The guitar comes with a bridge ashtray, very cool! The quality is custom shop without the high cost. The feel is perfect, the neck plays fast and I don't get tired or hand cramps. The body is light and resinates for ever. When I play mine I feel like I can do anything with it. Even unplugged it sounds great. The neck pickup sounds incredible. Sad songs sound more sad. Johnny Cash's "Hurt" forget about it! The bridge plays awesome too. Even Metallica sounds great with the single coil. Out of any guitars I have or have had, this is my hands down favorite! The Vintage series that fender is offering is absolutely incredible. I am a huge supporter of Vintage Series. I own the 52 and saving for the 58 Telecaster. If you haven't tried one you are missing out. I sold 3 Gibson Les Paul Standards that I thought were great so I could get the 52 & 64. The Telecaster has changed the way I played and the amount I play. I can't wait to get home from work and jam out. John 5 has it right!
