Designed by Fender Custom Shop masterbuilder Chris Fleming, Fender's Classic Player Baja Telecaster gives you authentically vintage-style features and hot-rodded mods ideal for today's players.

The Fender Classic Player Baja '50s Telecaster retains many of the original specs that made ‘50s Teles cherished by players and collectors alike.  This Telecaster features the classic ash body that set the standard for solid body guitar style. Former Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Chris Fleming has taken his previous design for the Classic Player Baja Telecaster and upgraded it with full-on 1950s features and vibe, including a comfortable '50s-era Soft "V"-shaped neck profile.

Players love to customize their Fender guitars, and for this model, Fender has taken care of some of the mods for you. The maple fingerboard has been re-shaped into a 9.5” radius which facilitates clean, effortless string bending anywhere along the neck, without the worry of your notes “fretting out” as you go into the upper registers.  This custom fingerboard is topped off with 21 medium Jumbo frets for luxurious playability.

Fender has outfitted the Classic Player Baja ‘50s Telecaster with a perfect combination of single-coil pickups from various eras. Its double-threat pickup configuration includes a Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele Single-Coil neck pickup and a Custom Shop Single-Coil Broadcaster bridge pickup.

A 4-position S-1 switch allows expanded tonal flexibility. Choose between pickup configurations wired in Series or Parallel. Additional vintage-style features include American Vintage string-through-body Telecaster bridge with three brass “barrel” saddles, special Custom Shop neck plate engraving, and vintage-style tuners. A Deluxe Gig Bag is included.

        Comments about Fender Classic Player Baja Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I've been looking for a '52 style Tele for a while, but never really liked some of the features, baseball bat neck shape, wiring, etc. Saw the Baja model, reviews were good, price was good. Traded in some gear for it, and I couldn't be happier. Got a great deal and excellent service, as always, from my friend Mike Tag. at Sam Ash . Finish is beautiful and plays great.

          Comments about Fender Classic Player Baja Telecaster Electric Guitar:

          I just bought this Guitar two days ago. Already used it on two sessions. It records flawlessly. I was trying out the American Standard, American Special, Nashville, and Baja Tele's. The Baja won hands down on tone. And, I love the bigger V style neck.
