The American Vintage '58 Telecaster gives you all the tone, feel and appointments that you'd find on an early '58 "pre-CBS" Tele--all at a mere fraction of the cost of an actual vintage Telecaster from 1958. Catering to its authenticity, this American Vintage '58 Telecaster was crafted in the image of an actual '58 that Fender got their hands on, and not only that, but it was also made using original tooling.

One of the most sought after and pivotal years for the world-renowned Telecaster, early 1958 represented some subtle design changes in the Telecaster model including a large (smaller than previous years), yet comfortable "D"-shaped neck profile and staggered pole pieces in the bridge pickup.

The Fender American Vintage '58 Telecaster sports an ash body that wears a thin Aged White Blonde flash-coat  lacquer finish that provides an old-school look while allowing the wood to breathe for a more natural resonance. For timeless Fender playability and comfort, this American Vintage '58 Tele boasts a period-correct "D"-shaped maple neck with a classic 25.5" scale length, a traditional 7.25" fingerboard radius, 21 vintage-style frets and a vintage-style heel adjust truss rod. The body, neck and headstock have all been re-created with the utmost accuracy thanks to meticulous study of the original.

A pair of American Vintage '58 Single-Coil Tele pickups were faithfully reproduced and voiced to reflect the performance and signature Tele tone and twang of the original pickups from '58. The electronics consist of a simplistic control layout: a Master Volume control, a Master Tone control and a 3-position switch. Other classic features include bone nut, a set of single line "Fender Deluxe" Vintage-Style tuners, a 3-Saddle American Vintage Strings-Through-Body bridge with solid barrel steel saddles, a single-ply white pickguard, knurled dome control knobs and a 4-bolt vintage-style neck plate. Comes complete with an updated deluxe vintage brown hardshell case, a vintage wiring kit, a '50s Tele information kit, a bridge cover, and a vintage '58 strap, cable & cloth.
