Fender’s Vintage Hot Rod ’50s Telecaster® guitar gives you the best Tele tone, style and performance of both eras—authentically vintage-style design touches straight from the 1950s and hot-rodded modern mods ideal for today’s players.
Premium features include an ash body; maple neck with “D”-shaped profile, vintage-style heel-end truss rod adjustment, and satin back finish; and a compound-radius (7.25”-12”) maple fingerboard with 21 6105 frets, bone nut and gloss finish. Versatile full-voiced tone comes from a Fender Wide Range Special humbucking neck pickup and a sparkling single-coil Broadcaster bridge pickup. Special four-way blade switch with “barrel” tip delivers the bridge pickup alone, both pickups in parallel, neck pickup alone and both pickups in series.
Other features include a single-ply white pickguard (Black model) or Bakelite pickguard (Butterscotch Blonde model), two knurled “dome” control knobs (master volume and tone), three-saddle American Vintage string-through-body Telecaster bridge with adjustable brass saddles, Gotoh® locking tuners and locking strap buttons. Includes upgraded deluxe vintage-style tweed case, vintage-style 8’ cable, vintage-style brown strap and wrenches
