News Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster [2012-2016]

TLC-Shaped Guitar from Fender belonging to the American Vintage series

Public price: $2,499 incl. VAT

Fender’s American Vintage series introduces a new lineup of original-era model year guitars.

The new American Vintage Series guitars feature thick and slim necks with profiles and edges re-sculpted to reflect greater period-correct authenticity, according to the company, with both maple and rosewood fingerboards, vintage-style frets and bone nuts; all-new vintage-style pickups wound to period-correct specs and sound to reflect specific model years, and specific periods within specific model years; retooled pickguards, parts and hardware designed to reflect specific model years (and again, even specific periods within specific model years), and standard and custom-color finishes re-formulated forn greater period-correct authenticity.

 

The new guitars are the American Vintage ’56, ’59 and ’65 Stratocaster models (’56 model also in left-handed version), American Vintage ’58 and ’64 Telecaster models (’64 model also in left-handed version), American Vintage ’65 Jazzmaster and American Vintage ’65 Jaguar. Also, the American Vintage ’52 Telecaster returns to the fold (in right- and left-handed versions).

 

The most distinctive features of each individual model are listed below:
