Fender American Vintage II 51 Telecaster MN BTB
Building on the success of Fender's American Vintage range, the American Vintage II series takes things up a notch, offering incredibly accurate recreations of Fender's most timeless designs. With period accurate bodies, necks and hardware and meticulously voiced, year-specific pickups, the American Vintage II series pays tribute to the revolutionary designs that altered the course of popular music forever.
The Fender American Vintage II 1951 Telecaster pays tribute to the first "blackguard" Teles that rolled off the production line in 1951, bringing solid body guitars to the masses. With its simple, yet ground-breaking design, '51 “U” shaped hard Rock Maple neck and legendary "twangy" sound, you would be forgiven for thinking you were playing a genuine vintage guitar. Featuring an Ash body with a Nitrocellulose lacquer finish, the 1951 Telecaster is the stuff of legends, designed for players with a keen appreciation of vintage instruments!
At the heart of the '51 Tele is a pair of Pure Vintage '51 Telecaster pickups for a host of punchy single-coil tones that will take you back to the golden age of guitar building. Other premium appointments include a triple brass saddle bridge, single-line “Fender Deluxe” tuners and iconic single-ply black phenolic pickguard.
