Fender Classic Series 50's Tele White Blonde MN
The Fender Classic Series 50's Tele in White Blonde with Maple Neck brings together the classic 50s style Telecaster with Fender's modern build quality and components.
Constructed from an ash wood body with a maple neck and fingerboard, the 50s Telecaster produces the classic 'twang' sound, with bright characteristics that have a strong punch in the midrange.
Few electric guitars shaped more styles of music in the '50s and '60s than the Telecaster, from James Burton to the Beatles, the Telecaster was at the heart of popular music. Featuring two single-coil Alnico pickups, a vintage Tele bridge and knurled chrome knobs, the Classic series Telecaster delivers vintage Fender sounds with the reliability that will keep you playing for years.
The Classic Series 50s Tele incorporates a string-thru body construction to provide improved tonality and sustain by transferring both vibrations and resonance from the string to the body as it goes over the vintage-style bridge and passes through the body. The carefully fitted synthetic bone nut delivers an increased resonance and brighter tonality. When compared to traditional plastic and Tusq materials used to construct guitar nuts, synthetic bone improves the vibration transfer between the string and tuning machines without dampening the tone.
