This is a demo model guitar that is currently on display in our showroom. The guitar is in excellent condition but does show evidence of being handled and played in our showroom. There is some very light scratching on the top well as some very minor surface scratching on the back of the guitar. These scratches could be buffed out with minimal effort. The guitar will ship as shown with full warranty and all the original factory documentation and packaging. We are authorized to give a great deal on our demo model Fender guitars! Our professional luthiers will fully inspect and set up the guitar before we ship. If you have any questions about this guitar or any of our great gear please let us know.
For players who want the style and sound of Fender's golden era, we created the Vintera '50s Telecaster. 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 bite and twang that made the Telecaster a legend.
For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated our favorite set of '50s Telecaster pickups. Twangy and articulate, they have the crisp, snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map. The thick, fat-shouldered "Early 50s U"-shaped neck has a 7.25"-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three brass barrel saddles gives this Telecaster it's characteristic twang, while vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and four-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
