High Quality Craftsmanship

The 50’s telecaster combines the sound of a vintage instrument with the reliability of modern production. The ash body is lightweight and produces balanced tones with warm midrange, making it ideal for gigging musicians. The single piece maple neck has a comfortable feel and adds brightness to your string resonance. The modern features include a slim C neck profile. This style is ideal for comfortable chord work, especially for people with slightly smaller hands. This model is a tribute to the 50s without compromising on playability.

Pickup Configuration

The telecaster guitars of the 50s featured a pickup configuration that was lost for a while after. The neck position has a single coil pickup in a humbucker shape, producing an excellent hybrid sound. The pickup, named a Dragster C, is ideal for musicians who still want to retain a bit of brightness in their neck position sound, whilst having the depth to create lush chords. This reissue provides you with the exact sound that was significant to the 50s. The vintage style single coil bridge pickup is particularly excellent when used for pop, rock and country as it achieves an impressive clarity and a balanced harmonic response.

The History of the Telecaster

The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster. An indispensable instrument, the Telecaster was the world's first successful solid-body electric guitar. Perfected after two years of development - and a name change or two - the Telecaster debuted in February 1951 and began its steady ascent towards the stage and studio. Ingeniously engineered with the ability to be heard both loud and clear, it was a marvel of simple design elegance and workhorse functionality. It is perhaps a fitting testimony to its essential original rightness that the Telecaster design has hardly changed ever since.

Fender Japan Guitars

Fender Japan was established as a way for Fender to market their guitars to the Japanese market, allowing for the creation of low cost Fender guitars that still possess the high expectations and build quality of their American counterparts. Japan is often considered to be one of the leading places in the world for guitar manufacturing. Although most of the guitars produced are not sold in the UK, the FSR models allow you to purchase an exceptionally high quality and unique guitar.
