For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to modern features, we created the Vintera Ô50s Telecaster Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronicsÑthis 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 9.5Ó-radius maple fingerboard that sits atop the ÒThick Soft VÓ-shaped neck. A vintage-style Tele bridge with three brass saddles gives this Telecaster itÕs characteristic twang, while 4-way switching and the S-1ª 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 ÒstrangledÓ tone. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
