Fender launches of a series of classic Limited Edition Road Worn® guitars that recreate the feel of the originals with aging patterns and a broken-in aesthetic.
Vintera® Road Worn® ‘50s Stratocaster® ($1,099.99) Prized for its natural tonal qualities and hand-distressed for an authentically well-played look, the Road Worn® 50s Stratocaster® delivers the bell-like tone and unbeatable playing comfort one gets from a great vintage guitar. For maximum authenticity, Fender has recreated the trio of single-coil pickups to sound more like the Stratocaster® originals, using Formvar wire and individually-beveled alnico 5 magnets. Available in Surf Green and Fiesta Red.
Vintera® Road Worn® ‘50s Telecaster® ($,1099.99) The Vintera Road Worn® ‘50s Telecaster captures the style and sound of Fender’s golden era with a period-accurate neck profile and playing feel. For unmistakably authentic tone, Fender has recreated its favorite set of ‘50s Telecaster®pickups using alnico 2 magnets for the neck, alnico 3 for the bridge
Vintera® Road Worn® ‘60s Stratocaster® ($1,099.99) The Road Worn® 60s Stratocaster® model features a “mid-60s C”-shaped neck faithful to its time, a vintage six-point synchronized tremolo
Vintera® Road Worn® ‘70s Telecaster® Deluxe ($1,099.99) Introduced in 1972 as a top-of-the-line option for Tele® players, and distinguished by its pair of Wide-Range humbucking pickups and large Strat® headstock, the Telecaster® Deluxe won over indie rock and alternative players with its combination of eye-catching looks, warm tone and enhanced sustain. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade – including period-accurate neck profiles and playing feel, alongside revoiced pickups – this guitar has all of the authentic bite and punch that made the original Telecaster® Deluxe a ‘70s legend. Available in Olympic White and Daphne Blue.
