New Brent Mason Signature Telecaster



Fender announced the Stories Collection Brent Mason Telecaster® and Stories Collection Fender Custom Shop® Limited-Edition Brent Mason Telecaster®.

Fender announced the Stories Collection Brent Mason Telecaster® and Stories Collection Fender Custom Shop® Limited-Edition Brent Mason Telecaster®, marking Fender’s first-ever collaboration with the Grammy® Award-winning artist and one of the most recorded guitarists in music history. Boasting top-of-the-line specs and a classic Telecaster® design, the Stories Collection Brent Mason Telecaster® (available September 15, 2020) provides players the special features and unique range of tones they need to draw on Brent’s platinum Nashville session sound. The Fender Custom Shop Limited Edition Brent Mason Telecaster® (available today) takes this iconic guitar design a step further with a range of custom appointments and a build painstakingly recreated in exacting detail by Master Builder Kyle McMillin.  

“My main – and most loved – guitar for over 35 years has been my 1967 Fender Telecaster®, so it feels great to see the Fender Stories Collection Brent Mason Telecaster® come to life,” Mason said. “I have lost count of the number of hit songs the guitar has featured on over the years, alongside the likes of Alan Jackson, Shania Twain, Toby Keith…there are hundreds. It has some brilliant features – my favorite of which is the middle pickup with an extra volume control knob – and I can’t wait to see what the guitar can do in the hands of other players around the world.”

The Stories Collection Brent Mason Telecaster® recreates the prized Telecaster® he discovered in a Nashville guitar shop in the early eighties: a ‘67/68 model that had been stripped of its original finish and re-sprayed in gray auto primer. Brent outfitted it with new pickups and controls, as well as a Glaser™ Bender system – transforming it into a versatile all-in-one session guitar. Boasting a Joe Glaser B-Bender system, Seymour Duncan mini-hum in the neck position, Hot Stack in the middle and Vintage Stack in the bridge, locking Sperzel tuners and Dunlop locking strap buttons – the Brent Mason Telecaster® provides the special features, smooth playability and diverse range of tones to nail Mason’s platinum Nashville session sound.

The Limited Edition Brent Mason Telecaster®, masterbuilt by Kyle McMillin, is inspired by the distinctive Tele® Mason has used for countless recordings and performances with a one-of-a-kind-tone that has made him one of Nashville’s most sought-after session aces. A trio of Seymour Duncan® pickups includes a mini humbucking neck pickup, ’80s-style hot-stack middle pickup and vintage-stack Telecaster bridge pickup, all wired to a custom control assembly with individual volume for the middle pickup, a push/pull tone knob that deactivates the middle pickup when pulled, and three-way blade switching. Other custom appointments include an off-center-seam ash body, 1967 “C” neck profile, 7.25”-radius round-laminated quartersawn maple fingerboard with 21 vintage frets and black pearloid face dots, and a Joe Glaser B-Bender system for extra Nashville twang. Deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity included.
