Fender Classic Series '50s Telecaster

CLASSIC ’50S TELE® STYLE

For guitarists who must have the instrument’s original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series ’50s Telecaster epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Tele® style and snap. With its authentic vintage-style features and finishes, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, “Ike for President,” cars with fins, two-stepping western swing, a wild new kind of music called rock ‘n’ roll, and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.
