Fender American Vintage 52 Telecaster in Butterscotch Blonde

Pure vintage Fender style

Pure Vintage Original Telecaster

For the guitarist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year guitars built with meticulous attention to accurate detail that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.

Before there was rock 'n' roll, there was the Telecaster—the Fender guitar that started it all. From humble beginnings came a revolutionary and elegantly simple new electric guitar that let musicians be heard loud and clear with sparkling tone and distinctive style. The U.S.-made American Vintage '52 Telecaster puts that original-instrument magic in your hands, built using original tooling and based on actual 1952 models we tracked down.


Features

  •     Ash body
  •     Thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish in light Butterscotch Blonde
  •     Deep maple neck with “U”-shaped profile and rolled edges
  •     Specially voiced pickups
  •     Recessed-top “barrel” switch tip and knurled/domed chrome control knobs
  •     Vintage-style bridge with three brass saddles


 

 

 

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender's best selling guitars (their early-'80s 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.

Nowhere is this re-dedication to detail more evident than on the American Vintage '52 Telecaster® guitar, which returns to the fold with body, neck and pickups refined with the best features (tones, curves, perimeters, radii and more) from a handful of extraordinary '52 Telecaster specimens we examined. Premium features include an ash body with a singe-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.
