Fender's MIJ Traditional Series encompasses a range of vintage-inspired Fender instruments. Combining iconic looks and "Golden Era" specs with renowned Japanese craftsmanship, these time-honoured guitars and basses pay tribute to some of the most coveted music-making tools ever created!

This Traditional '50s Telecaster is a real "time capsule" guitar that provides the playability and sound of Fender's earliest Tele models. From its vintage-style pickups and hardware, to its thick "U"-shaped neck and stylish 1-ply pickguard — this retro instrument is a nostalgic masterpiece that will give old-school guitar aficionados plenty of satisfying vibe.

Key Features

  • Basswood Body — Lightweight timber with balanced tonal properties. A rock-solid foundation for the single-coil pickup pairing.
  • Bolt-On Construction — Produces the "snappy" note response synonymous with all Fender instruments.
  • "U"-Shaped Neck — Classic '50s profile provides comfortable playability with its girthy, traditional shape.
  • Vintage Frets — Smaller fret-wire gives your fingers reassuring contact with the fingerboard and allows you to play with plenty of control.
  • Fender Vintage-Style Pickups — Two single-coils deliver the legendary "twang" that all Fender Telecasters are adored for!
  • Strings-Through-Body Bridge — 3-saddle bridge captures the look and sound of "Golden Era" Teles, with string-through-body design and brass saddles boosting resonance.
  • Bone Nut — Low-friction material minimises unwanted tuning slips and enhances sustain.
  • Vintage-Style Tuners — High-quality, old-school tuning machines allow for precise string pitching.
