The Fender American Vintage '58 Telecaster harkens back to early 1958, when the Telecaster graduated from its original U-shaped neck profile -- a real handful -- to a still-large but more comfortable D-shape for its maple neck. Other spot-on early-'58 touches are here too, such as a lightweight ash body, staggered bridge pickup pole magnets, solid steel "barrel" bridge saddles, a single-ply white pickguard, "top-hat" switch tip, flat-top knurled aluminum chrome control knobs and more.
1958 was an important year for the Telecaster because that's when slimmer necks started appearing on the instrument, and when (in early-year models) string-through bridges with solid-steel saddles first showed up, magnifying the guitar's prized signature twang.
The American Vintage series introduces a lineup of original-era model year guitars that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting life. With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender's roots--expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it's going, but also remembers where it came from.
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 features, specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet. Rather than just replacing the previous models with different ones, we've completely and comprehensively re-imagined the entire vintage-reissue concept--restoring original tooling dies, voicing pickups, reformulating vintage colors and more--based on actual vintage guitars we tracked down to make sure we had it right. We did the work, and it shows, because there's pure tonal magic in each American Vintage instrument.
