More about Vintage Custom 1958 Top-Load Telecaster®

In 1958 we modified the design of the venerable Telecaster, switching from a string-through-body bridge to a top-loading bridge. A flexible guitar with authentic Fender tone, the Vintage Custom ’58 Telecaster lets you choose either stringing method, courtesy of the Top-Load Tele bridge with period-accurate threaded steel saddles. The two-piece select ash body wears a pristine translucent Aged White Blonde NOS flash coat lacquer finish that makes it look like this instrument time-traveled from ’58 to today. The tinted riftsawn maple neck’s “U”-shaped profile fills the hand comfortably while the 7.25”-9.5”-compound-radius fingerboard flattens out as you go up the neck, making it easy to bend without fretting out, and 21 medium-vintage frets offer familiar playing feel. The pair of Hand-Wound ’58 Tele single-coil pickups are packed with authentic twang and growl, tied together with vintage-style wiring. For those who want more modern tone, we included a Fat ‘50s Tele wiring and control assembly in the case.

Other features include 3-way switch, 1-ply Eggshell pickguard, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and wing string tree. Includes deluxe hardshell case, strap and Certificate of Authenticity.
