Fender Vintera '50s Telecaster Modified in Surf Green MX19160797

Regular price $999.99 Sale

For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to modern features, we created the Vintera® ‘50s Telecaster® Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics—this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood. This one is nice and light weight at only 7 lbs 4 oz! Most Baja Tele's cleared 8 lbs, some of them 9 lbs!

For modern Fender® tone we included a pair of Custom Shop pickups, kicking things up a bit with a vintage-style bridge pickup and fat-sounding Twisted Tele neck pickup. Twangy and articulate, they have the crisp, snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map. For modern playing feel, we added 21 medium-jumbo frets to the 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard that sits atop the “Thick Soft V”-shaped neck. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three brass saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang, while 4-way switching and the S-1™ switch give you even more tonal variety. Series wiring makes this Tele sound fat, like a humbucking pickup, while the S-1 switch places the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool “strangled” tone. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.

The pictures in this listings are of the exact guitar that we have for sale. It has been fully set-up in our shop by George MacPhail, play tested for functionality, then re-inspected and set-up to your preferences before being shipped out. Plus, we'll never charge you for a case that was included with your guitar in the first place!
