Just in at Diablo Guitars is this Fender USA American Vintage ’52 Telecaster in an Iconic Butterscotch Blonde Finish! The American Vintage series introduces an all-new lineup of original-era model year guitars that bring Fender history and heritage to authentic and exciting new life. With key features and pivotal design elements spanning the mid-1950s to the mid-1960s, American Vintage series instruments delve deep into Fender’s roots, expertly preserving an innovative U.S. guitar-making legacy and vividly demonstrating like never before that Fender not only knows where it’s going, but also remembers where it came from. The American Vintage Series has long presented some of Fender’s best selling guitars (their early-’80s introduction, in fact, was one of the first signs that Fender was “back” as the CBS era ended). Today, Fender has boldly cleared the slate to make way for a fresh American Vintage series with new features, new specs and the most meticulous level of vintage accuracy yet.

Nowhere is this re-dedication to detail more evident than on the American Vintage ’52 Telecaster guitar, which returns to the fold with body, neck and pickups refined with the best features (tones, curves, perimeters, radius and more) from a handful of extraordinary ’52 Telecaster specimens that were examined. Premium features include an ash body with a singe-ply black pickguard and thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish in lighter Butterscotch Blonde, maple neck with “U”-shaped profile and generously rolled edges, sculpted headstock volute for even more first-position comfort, long-lost recessed-top “barrel” switch tip, vintage tuner spacing for truly straight string pull over the bone nut, vintage-style bridge with three brass saddles, and knurled chrome domed control knobs.

Our ’52 American Vintage Telecaster comes to us in excellent condition. There are a few dings documented in the photographs above. This guitar also incudes a certificate from the famous Mike Lull’s Guitar Shop indicating an absolute top quality refret and plek job on the guitar. It’s been freshly set up with .9-.46 strings, low fast action and a straight neck. Ships in a molded SKB hard shell case.
