    Product Description

    Fender’s Vintera range embodies everything that put the iconic guitar company on the map. Channelling the mojo of their finest ‘50s, ‘60s and ‘70s instruments, the Vintera models also boast a surprisingly affordable price point. The ‘50s Telecaster Modified combines first-run Tele specs with Custom Shop pickups for colourful twang and head-turning looks in equal measure.

    Body & Neck

    This Tele has an Alder body, a Fender mainstay since the mid-50s. A Gloss Polyester finish gives the body a wonderful sheen that oozes vintage class.  

    The Maple neck has been given the vintage U-shape treatment. A real baseball bat to wrap your hands around, it also really brings out the Tele twang in spectacular fashion.

    Electronics & Hardware

    While the finish and classic tonewood combo define the ‘50s Tele, the magic is in the word ‘modified’. This model comes loaded with two Custom Shop Tim Shaw-designed pickups; Vintage-Style Single-Coil in the bridge and a "Twisted" Single-Coil in the neck, respectively. You’ll seldom find pickups of this calibre in a guitar at this price point – sizzling tones galore.

    A 4-way blade S-1 switch configuration unlocks a whole new palette. You've got out of phase options, as well as both pickups in either series or parallel for hotter output. Vintage-style tuners and the classic 3-saddle American Chrome Barrel saddles complete the picture. This is the definition of classic Tele with a turbocharged sound to boot.

    Set up was almost there. Neck pick up was at a 45° angle on the treble side and was choking out the strings. Easy fix but not sure how it passed quality control. Other than that everything was perfectly good

    Fantastic guitar nothing more to say really. If Tele's are your thing then I'm sure this will suit you as well. Everyone who sees it comments how cool it looks.

    The guitar is a 4 star, but the set up is a 2. Yes vintage saddles do not intonate very well but they could of at least given it a go in the factory. Replaced with compensated saddle but first and second fret are still out because the nut is cut so high and I think this is also why it's a bit buzzy with a low/medium action because the neck is fine, so that's got to be done by a tech. It is a good guitar - versatile, vintage looks, and if you like twisted Tele neck pickups you'r golden - but they don't make it easy for you to start enjoying right away and I'll have to mark down the value for money because of the additional work required.
