Designed to capture the vibe of Fender's "golden era," the Fender Vintera '70s Telecaster Deluxe solidbody electric guitar delivers one of the most distinctive voices in electric guitar history. Its neck profile and playing feel are derived from some of the best examples of '70s Teles. And a pair of Wide Range humbucking pickups delivers the punch and snap players expect from a Tele, for vintage tone without the vintage hum. Complete with a 6-saddle Strat bridge for superior intonation, and a unique (for a Tele) 4-knob control set, the Fender Vintera '70s Telecaster Deluxe is ready to be your lifelong gig companion.
Fender designed the Wide Range humbucking pickups in the Vintera '70s Telecaster Deluxe to sound bold and fat, delivering the punchy character you'd expect from a Tele. And your sonic options are vast when you explore the control scheme. You'll find volume and tone controls for each pickup, plus 3-way pickup switching. Guitarists at Music Experience dig this variation on the classic Tele controls, allowing you to dial back the tone on the bridge pickup without dulling your neck pickup's tone when using them in conjunction.
Tapping into the Teles of the '70s, the Vintera '70s Telecaster Deluxe is equipped with a Thin "C" neck profile with 9.5" fretboard radius. It's a comfortable balance between the fat necks of early '50s models and the ultra-thin necks that seem to dominate the modern marketplace. Complete with 21 vintage-size frets, the Vintera '70s Telecaster Deluxe feels great played in a variety of musical styles, whether you're chord-focused or blazing through lead lines.
That's right — the Fender Vintera '70s Telecaster Deluxe is loaded with a 6-saddle, strings-through-body Strat bridge. It feels comfortable when you're resting your picking hand against it. And the individual saddles allow you to dial in spot-on intonation, even if you're using altered or open tunings.
The Vintera Series offers Fender’s most popular models in a myriad of shapes and sizes. These instruments are ideal for players who dig vintage-style Fenders, but feel that American Original and Custom Shop guitars are out of their reach. Vintera Series instruments are available in both Vintage and Modified configurations: Vintage models span the ’50s to the ’70s, with period-correct specifications for each era, while Modified models look like vintage instruments but include modern updates that contemporary guitarists will appreciate. All Vintera Series guitars and basses boast Tim Shaw–designed pickups and are available in a wide array of vintage-inspired colors. The guitarists here at Music Experience have found the Vintera Series to be the perfect introduction to Fender’s iconic lineup of legendary instruments.
For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera ‘70s Telecaster Deluxe. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the authentic bite and twang that made the Telecaster a legend. We recreated the pair of Wide Range humbucking pickups to sound more like the originals. Bold and fat-sounding, they have the punchy tone that’s inspired musicians for over four decades. The “Thin C”-shaped neck has a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style, string-through-body hardtail Strat® bridge with six saddles gives this Telecaster accurate intonation, while “F”-stamped tuning machines offer period-correct aesthetics, classic feel and rock-solid tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and three-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
