Fender Vintera Teles - All The Models in One Review!

Construction

The thin C shape neck is a slimmer take on the ’60s Fender variation. The softer shoulders make it accessible to all 21 tall, narrow frets. At a 7.25” radius, the fingerboard is effortless to navigate and easy to perform techniques like the wrap around thumb on the low string.

Sound

Custom Teles benefit from the cool single coil/humbucker pickup configuration. The Vintera houses a ‘70s inspired medium output single coil in the bridge, which produces chimey bell-like tone. The Wide Range humbucker in the neck position is famous for its beefy output and full girthy sound. There’s plenty to explore with this tasteful sonic combination.

Hardware

The vintage style hardware doesn’t just look pretty. Fender’s three screw bolt-on necks are highly durable, as well as the American vintage bridge with chrome barrel saddles. It’ll keep your Tele intonated and in tune through heavy use. As with all Fender guitars, the hardware is highly reliable and can take on years of playing having been made in their high-tech Mexico factory.
