Leo Fender's 1952 Telecaster legitimized the electric guitar as a mainstream instrument. Session blues and country players praised the Tele for its blue-collar price and trendsetting looks. And with it, artists like Jimmy Page and Keith Richards shaped the very sound of rock 'n' roll. The Fender American Original '50s Telecaster has the heart and soul of a true '52. Period correct are this Tele's strong, straight-grained ash body with single-ply phenolic pickguard and brass barrel saddles; hand-filling baseball bat "U" maple neck; spanky maple fingerboard with vintage-tall frets and black dot inlays; and painstakingly correct, copper-plated Pure Vintage '52 pickups. Yet tailored for the modern player is the comfortable 9.5" fingerboard, which minimizes fretting out as you move up the neck.
