For the guitarist who craves pure vintage Fender style, the American Vintage series presents original-era model year guitars built with meticulous attention to accurate detail that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life.
Before there was rock ‘n’ roll, there was the Telecaster—the Fender guitar that started it all. From humble beginnings came a revolutionary and elegantly simple new electric guitar that let musicians be heard loud and clear with sparkling tone and distinctive style. The U.S.-made left-handed American Vintage ’52 Telecaster puts that original-instrument magic in your hands, built using original tooling and based on actual 1952 models we found.
