Solid Alder Body

The FSR Telecaster features a solid alder body to deliver strong, full bodied tones that’s recognizable from 50s and 60s Fender guitars. The tonewood provides the guitar with beefy mids and excellent lows, bringing sizzle to the high end for a decent amount of sustain. The Fender is then finished off with knurled flat-top control knobs, a 3-ply white pickguard, chrome hardware and a 3-tone sunburst finish, creating a classic look that will catch people’s eyes.

Maple Neck, Rosewood Fingerboard

The slim ‘C’ maple neck offers a comfortably smooth play, delivering bright tones that add tightness and cut to the guitars sound. The rosewood fingerboard helps to ‘fur up’ the maples natural tone, providing the Fender with sizzling highs, firm lows, and a snappy attack in the midrange. Gotoh tuners are used on the guitar, offering incredible tuning stability while also providing quick string changes to keep you playing for as long as possible.

String Thru Construction

The FSR Telecaster incorporates a string-thru body construction to provide improved tonality and sustain by transferring vibrations and resonance from the strings to the body. The vintage style bridge features brass barrel saddles that keep the strings stable, allowing the guitar to be played harder without it going out of tune.

Resonant Synthetic Bone Nut

Featuring a carefully fitted synthetic bone nut, the FSR Classic 60s Telecaster delivers an increased resonance and brighter tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.

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 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.
