For players who appreciate the mojo of the past matched to modern features, Fender created Vintera '50s Telecaster Modified. Blending classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics, this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.

For modern tone Fender 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, Fender added 21 medium-jumbo frets to the 9.5"-radius maple fingerboard that sits atop the 'Thick Soft V'-shaped neck. A vintage-style Tele bridge with three brass saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang, while 4-way switching and the S-1 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 'strangled' tone. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and 4-bolt neck plate. Includes a deluxe gig bag.

Alder body
A classic Fender tone wood, alder's sound is balanced with equal doses of lows, mids and highs.

Thick 'Soft V' neck profile
Based on a 'Late 50s V' profile that’s been slightly rounded, the 'Soft V' neck profile has a distinctly comfortable fretting-hand feel, is a bit thicker and fills the hand nicely.

Custom Shop pickups
Fender matched a Custom Shop vintage-style single-coil bridge pickup with a fat-sounding Twisted Tele neck pickup for howling, girthy tone.

Modern fingerboard
Comfortable for chording and single-note playing alike, the 9.5"-radius fingerboard offers modern feel thanks to its medium-jumbo frets, while also making wide bends easier in the upper registers.

Vintage-style 3-saddle bridge
This Telecaster incorporates a stylishly classic bridge with a rock-solid string-through-body design and three brass 'barrel' saddles for authentic tone.

Four-way and S-1 switching
Fender added a series wiring option to make this Tele sound giant, while the S-1 switch puts the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool 'strangled' tone.
