Fender 2012 American Vintage 52 Tele Buttersctoch Blonde Guitar

The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender’s best selling guitars (their early-80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was “back” as the CBS era ended.) Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, Fender completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage reissue concept restoring original tooling dies, voicing new pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more based on actual vintage guitars Fender tracked down to make sure Fender had it right. Fender did all the work, and it shows, because there’s pure tonal magic in each new American Vintage instrument.

With its big maple neck, the 1952 Telecaster was a landmark guitar in Fender History, and nowhere is today’s re-dedication to detail more evident than on the American Vintage ’52 Telecaster, which returns to the fold with body, neck and pickups refined with the best features (tones, curves, perimeters, radii and more) from a handful of extraordinary ’52 Tele specimens Fender examined. Premium features include an ash body with a single-ply black pickguard and thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish in lighter butterscotch blonde, deep maple neck with “U” shaped profile and generously rolled edges, sculpted headstock volute for even more first position comfort, long lost recessed top “barrel” switch tip, vintage tuner spacing for truly straight string pull over the bone nut, vintage style bridge with three brass saddles, and knurled chrome domed control knobs.
