The American Vintage series introduces an all-new
lineup of original-era model year guitars that bring
Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting
new life. With key features and pivotal design
elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s,
new American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender's
roots-expertly preserving an innovative
U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating
like never before that Fender not only knows where it's going,
but also where it came from.
The American Vintage Series has long presented
some of Fender's best selling guitars (their early-80's
introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that
Fender was “back” as the CBS era ended). Today,
Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a
fresh American Vintage series with new features,
new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage
accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous
models with different ones, we've completely and
comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept
restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups,
reformulating vintage colors and more - based on actual
vintage guitars we tracked down to make sure we had it right.
We did the work, and it shows, because there's pure tonal magic
in each new American Vintage instrument.
With its big maple neck, the 1952 Telecaster was a
landmark guitar in Fender history, and nowhere is
the fold with body, neck and pickups refined with the
best features (tones, curves, perimeters, radii and
specimens we examined. Premium features include
an ash body with a single-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
