You are looking at a Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar Butterscotch Blonde, serial number V1635667. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 8.8 oz.)

In 1951, Leo Fender introduced the first prototype solidbody instrument, and this game-changing instrument that was soon dubbed as the Telecaster became one of the most iconic and legendary guitars in the world. Before the birth of rock 'n' roll, there was the Telecaster, and this revolutionary instrument truly altered the world of music forever with its creation.

Today, the American Vintage '52 Telecaster brings all the tone, feel, and mojo of Fender's original solidbody Spanish-style guitar that started it all into the hands of today's players. This American-made, vintage-inspired Tele was painstakingly crafted in the image of actual originals that Fender got their hands on, and were built using original tooling and employ all period-correct features & appointments.

Just as the originals, the ash body of the American Vintage '52 Telecaster features a single-ply black pickguard and comes dressed in a light Butterscotch Blonde ultra-thin flash-coat lacquer finish that provides an authentic vintage look while allowing the wood to breathe for a more natural resonance. For that genuine Fender feel and playability, the maple neck is shaped into a chunkier, deeper vintage-correct "U"-shaped profile and carries a maple 'board with a traditional 7.25"-radius and 21 vintage-style frets with comfortably rolled edges. Black dot fretboard inlays, a bone nut, and a vintage-style butt adjust truss rod all enhance the authentic classic Tele vibe. Ensuring the highest levels of vintage correctness, the American Vintage '52 Telecaster features improved neck and body radii accuracy through meticulous examination of the measurements of actual '52 Telecasters.

The American Vintage '52 Telecaster comes equipped with a pair of American Vintage '52 Tele pickups that were carefully researched, crafted, wound, and specially voiced to re-create that sought-after Tele twang and sparkle that helped make the Telecaster the legend that it is today. The pickups are wired through a 3-position pickup selector featuring a period-correct "barrel" switch tip and Master Volume & Tone controls that are capped with accurate knurled/domed chrome knobs.

Other vintage-correct appointments include a chrome-plated 3-saddle American Vintage strings-through-body Tele bridge with brass saddles, single line "Fender Deluxe" vintage-style tuners, and a 4-bolt vintage-style neck plate. Comes complete with an updated Deluxe Vintage Tweed hardshell case, a vintage '21 Tele strap, cable, and cloth, a vintage wiring kit, a '50s Tele information kit, and a bridge cover.
