This Fender Vintera '70s Telecaster Thinline in Candy Apple Red is a stunning beauty! From the lush Candy Apple Red finish, to the pearled Pickguard, to the lightly tinted maple neck, this is one appealing guitar that has a lot going for it, looks aside!
Loaded with a pair of Wide Range Humbucking Pickups, a master volume control, master tone control, all tied together with a 3-way blade. These are still the classic Tele controls so finding your sound should be easy enough! The Vintera Pickups have been voiced to be more accurate to the tones of the 70's so plugging into a Marshall and driving it hard sounds as authentic as playing it clean through the padded input of a Deluxe Reverb.
The neck is made from a Slim C Shaped Neck, that has been shaped for period-correct playing experience. Other important neck specs include 25.5" scale length, 1.650" nut width, 21 Vintage sized frets, and a 7.25" fingerboard radius.
From Fender.com.... For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s classic years, we created the Vintera® ‘70s Telecaster® Thinline. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the growl and twang that made the Telecaster a legend.
We recreated the pair of Wide Range humbucking pickups to sound more like the ‘70s originals. Bold and fat-sounding, they have the punchy tone that’s inspired musicians for over four decades. The “Thin C”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, string-through-body hardtail Strat® bridge with six saddles gives this Telecaster accurate intonation, while “F”-stamped tuning machines offer period-correct aesthetics, classic feel, and rock-solid tuning stability. Other features include a three-bolt neck plate, chrome hardware, and vintage-style strap buttons. Includes a deluxe gig bag.Fender keeps building guitars for players.
