    Honor Guitar History With The Fender American Vintage '58 Telecaster

    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.

    Original-era rock 'n' roll was in full swing in 1958, and the Telecaster was right there with it, already a must-have instrument for working guitarists nationwide. Built using original tooling and based on early 1958 models we tracked down, the U.S.-made American Vintage '58 Telecaster is a must-have model for the guitarist who appreciates its place in music history, a transitional year when the Tele took on subtly stylish new design touches, including a "D"-shaped neck profile and staggered bridge pickup pole pieces.

    FLASH-COAT LACQUER FINISH

    The term flash-coat lacquer refers specifically to the quickly applied thin and final "flash" of topcoat lacquer applied to most American Vintage instruments. The composition and method of application for this finish layer lets an instrument "breathe" with a more natural resonance, and imparts a more authentically vintage appearance.

    NEWLY VOICED AMERICAN VINTAGE PICKUPS

    American Vintage instruments feature specially voiced pickups meticulously researched and crafted to reproduce the authentic design, voice and performance of specific instruments from individual model years in the 1950, ’60s and ’70s. Their superior sound and style is one of the defining hallmarks of the American Vintage series.

    PERIOD CORRECT NECK PROFILES

    This instrument’s "D" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to the most accurate period-correct spec possible, imparting an authentic vintage playing feel straight from the individual model year. A broad-shouldered, almost "U"-like profile, but more shallow and typically used on thinner necks

    IMPROVED NECK AND BODY RADII ACCURACY

    The meticulous vintage authenticity of this instrument even extends to carefully researched measurements of the various degrees of rounding on the edges of the body, neck and headstock. These subtleties are reproduced here with Fender’s highest-yet level of period-correct accuracy, and contribute to a truly faithful vintage-instrument experience.

    BONE NUT

    A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, not to mention being an authentic original-era Fender design element. Many players consider bone string nuts more "organic" sounding, with tonal quality unmatched by string nuts made using synthetic materials.

    PERIOD-CORRECT CASES AND EPHEMERA

    American Vintage instruments are complemented by cases that are every bit as vintage-authentic as the guitars and basses they so stylishly contain, accompanied by a fascinating wealth of in-case reproduction extras and accessories, such as straps, cables, polishing cloths, wiring kits, bridge covers, owner’s manuals and more.
