Fender American Vintage '52 Tele - BBL

Fender American Vintage '52 Tele - BBL

The American Vintage series guitars from Fender bring the history and heritage of the company to an authentic and exciting new life. With key features and pivotal design elements from each particular model spanning from the early 1950's to the mid 1960's they expertly preserve an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy while vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it's going, but also remembers where it came from.

Nowhere is this re-dedication to detail more evident than on the American Vintage '52 Telecaster, which returns to the fold with body, neck and pickups refined with the best features (tones, curves, perimeters, radii and more) from a handful of extraordinary '52 Tele specimens we examined. Premium features include an ash body with a singe-ply black pickguard and thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish in lighter Butterscotch Blonde, deep maple neck with "U"-shaped profile and generously rolled edges, sculpted headstock volute for even more first-position comfort, long-lost recessed-top "barrel" switch tip, vintage tuner spacing for truly straight string pull over the bone nut, vintage-style bridge with three brass saddles, and knurled chrome domed control knobs.
