Fender Vintera '50S Telecaster Modified, Daphne Blue

The mojo of the past matched to modern features.

 

FENDER VINTERA® '50S TELECASTER® MODIFIED

Model #: 0149862304

Vintera = Vintage Era - This range is a contemporary take on the best aspects of classic decades, but with the modern player in mind.

MIM = Made in Mexico

For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to modern features, we created the Vintera® ‘50s Telecaster® Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics—this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.

 

For modern Fender® tone we included a pair of Custom Shop pickups, kicking things up a bit with a vintage-style bridge pickup and fat-sounding Twisted Tele neck pickup. Twangy and articulate, they have the crisp, snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map. For modern playing feel, we added 21 medium-jumbo frets to the 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard that sits atop the “Thick Soft V”-shaped neck. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three brass saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang, while 4-way switching and the S-1™ switch give you even more tonal variety. Series wiring makes this Tele sound fat, like a humbucking pickup, while the S-1 switch places the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool “strangled” tone. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.

 

FEATURES

  • Alder body
  • Custom shop vintage-style Tele single-coil bridge pickup; Custom Shop Twisted Tele neck pickup
  • “Thick Soft V”-shaped maple neck with satin back finish; 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets
  • Four-way switching and S-1 switch
  • Includes deluxe gig bag

 

 

ALDER BODY

Alder’s tone is balanced, with equal doses of lows, mids and highs

 

THICK “SOFT V” NECK PROFILE

Based on a “Late 50s V” profile that’s been slightly rounded, the "Soft V" neck profile has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel, is a bit thicker and fills the hand nicely.

 

CUSTOM SHOP PICKUPS

We matched a Custom Shop vintage-style single-coil bridge pickup with a fat-sounding Twisted Tele neck pickup, for howling, girthy tone.

 

MODERN FINGERBOARD

Comfortable for chording and single-note playing alike, the 9.5”-radius fingerboard offers modern feel thanks to its medium-jumbo frets, while also making wide bends easier in the upper registers.

 

VINTAGE-STYLE 3-SADDLE BRIDGE

This Telecaster incorporates a stylishly classic bridge with a rock-solid string-through-body design and three brass “barrel” saddles for authentic tone.

 

FOUR-WAY & S-1 SWITCHING

We added a series wiring option to make this Tele sound giant, while the S-1 switch puts the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool “strangled” tone.
