To get a real vintage sound from a guitar, discerning musicians at Music Experience know that you need to start with great pickups. The Fender-designed, Alnico V-loaded single-coil pickups in the Squier 40th-anniversary Vintage Edition Telecaster nail those classic tones. You'll love the sound of this solidbody electric guitar — it delivers all the characteristic Tele twang and bite you can handle, then takes it a step further. And with a 3-position blade, volume, and tone control, you have a wide array of sounds to dial in, in addition to near-infinite stylistic colorings to explore across genres.
Thanks to its vintage-tinted maple neck, the Squier 40th-anniversary Vintage Edition Telecaster is teeming with retro vibe. That said, its 9.5-inch fingerboard radius gives you a comfortable playing surface that allows for wider string bends than the 7.25-inch radius of vintage guitars. While being rounded enough for comfortable chording, this radius is perfect for double-stop bends, wide vibrato, and even bends over a whole step. And this Tele's modern-day "C"-shaped neck feels just right, smoothing the way for fleet-fingered fretting.
