Fender American Original 50s Telecaster Left-Hand Maple Fingerboard Butterscotch Blonde

Please Note Actual Case May Vary 

The Fender American Original '50s Telecaster LH MN, Butterscotch Blonde recreates the sound and appearance of those 1950s Telecasters, combined with a modern feel for a classic Fender tone and style. Players who love the Telecaster's unique feel and style will truly appreciate the American Original's tonal characteristics which take you soaring back to the 50s decade of sonically pleasing music. The Fender American Original Telecaster features Pure Vintage '52 single-coil Tele pickups which were built to be as period-correct as possible to deliver a powerfully authentic sound and a vintage-styled fat warmth. With these pickups, players are able to achieve the classic sounds from the 50s decade, from rock and roll, to swing, rockabilly, and rhythm and blues. With the American Original's iconic Telecaster body, thick U shaped neck profile, and familiar 9.5'' fingerboard radius, players can benefit from enhanced playability and the comfort that's on offer. The American Original also features lacquer finish which allows the wood to breath naturally for added resonance, as well as helping the appearance to age in a distinctively appealing way. With all of these exceptional qualities, this is the reason why many legendary artists choose Fender. 

Pure Vintage '52 Single Coil Pickups

The Fender American Original '50s Telecaster comes equipped with two Pure Vintage '52 single-coil pickups, which have been constructed to deliver the sweet, twangy and articulate sound that the original Tele's were known for. These powerfully-vintage pickups are constructed to be as period correct as possible from its enamel-coated coil wire to the cloth-covered output wires, fibre bobbins, and alnico 3 magnets. Fender even made sure the steel base plates are copper plated, while the pickup's pole pieces are flush-mounted just like the originals. Furthermore, the American Original's bridge pickup projects a twangy tone when the guitar is lightly picked, yet delivers a fat, juicy, warm compression when driven hard. In addition, the neck pickup delivers a sweet, articulate and clear sound to add to its melodically-vintage tonal characteristics. With this, players who love to explore the musical possibilities of the 1950s decade are to certain to achieve sounds from genres including rock and roll, modern country, rhythm and blues, rockabilly, swing, and pop.

Iconic Telecaster Body

With a highly recognisable and iconic Telecaster body, players can appreciate and benefit from its cutaway profile, which not only acts as an aesthetic appeal, but promotes the access to upper fingerboard shredding. The Telecaster's body is flat with wide shoulders which offer superb durability, perfect for those touring guitarists needing an incredibly reliable instrument with Fender's signature style and tone. Furthermore, the American Original features a body constructed from ash, which delivers bright, crisp and articulate tones with form lows, snappy highs, good resonance, and plenty of twang. Its ash body also offers players a lightweight and comfortable playing experience. In addition, the Fender American Original features an ashtray bridge type which is where the strings go through the back of the guitar, offering incredibly stable strings while improving sustain and adding resonance.

Neck & Fingerboard

With a neck constructed from maple, the American Original has a bright attack with great sustain combined with a smooth playing experience. The Fender American Original Tele features a thick U shaped neck profile which fills the hand provides a comfortable and secure grip no matter how much you like to race up and down the neck. The U neck profile is also perfect for players who like to place their thumb on the back or side of the neck, whilst its familiar 9.5'' fingerboard radius offers enhanced playability. Furthermore, the smooth playing neck is topped with a maple fingerboard which adds more sustain and plenty of bite to the guitar's overall sound. Additionally, the '50s Telecaster has a left handed dexterity, providing the lefty players with Fender's iconic style and tone, for a powerfully vintage performance.

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.
