This Used Fender American Vintage Hot Rod 52 Telecaster in Butterscotch is here on consignment. It weighs 8 lbs 3 oz, features an Ash Body, and a Seymour Duncan Minibucker. This discontinued model has gone on to become a sought-after model thanks to its player-friendly mods. It is in great shape as it is clean, cosmetically and it is fully functioning. The neck is straight, the frets are still, crowned, and the truss rod is functioning properly. Included with the guitar is the original hardshell case.
The Vintage Hot Rod '52 Telecaster takes the best of old and new Fender craftsmanship to create a fantastic guitar built for the serious player! Visually very accurate to the look of a '52 Telecaster, it has a list of sought-after Custom Shop upgrades to make any Tele player drool. It's got a top-of-the-line thin-skin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that ages quickly and beautifully as well as letting the natural tone of the wood shine. The neck has been streamlined for smooth playability with a satin-finish back, 9.5" fingerboard radius, and medium-jumbo frets. The three brass saddles on the vintage-style Tele bridge are compensated to allow for more accurate intonation. And a Seymour Duncan Vintage Mini-Humbucker at the neck and a custom-wound Tele bridge pickup delivers the hot tones called for in modern music.
The rest of its features are true-blue '52 Tele, like the American Vintage model it's based on: a premium ash body, one-piece maple neck with U-shape profile, Fender/Gotoh vintage-style tuners, a one-ply black pickguard, and chrome hardware.
The Fender American Vintage Hot Rod Series offered old-school-looking old-school looking instruments with player-friendly specs, making them truly worthy of the Hot Rod tag. An exceptionally playable neck combined with the Seymour Duncan Mini-bucker make this guitar rip! The crunchy Seymour Duncan Neck Pickup pairs incredibly well with the American Vintage Bridge Pickup. They meet in the middle for the best of both worlds.
Nobody treats used guitars as we do at The Music Gallery! Every trade-in goes through an inspection, cleaning, restring and set up before being put out on sale. We even put guitars with bad frets through our Plek machine if need be. If this service piques your interest learn more here or give us a call!
