Fender FSR 50s Telecaster 90 - Lake Placid Blue / Maple
This limited edition number from Fender combines the authentic vintage spec Tele charm with an alternative P90 pickup in the neck position.
The Fender FSR 50s Telecaster 90, featuring a Lake Placid Blue finish and a Maple neck, is a limited edition venture from Fender that takes the DNA of a true 1950's Tele specification but with a twist in the form of a P90 neck pickup.
The core of this guitar is of course that classic single cutaway body and for this model Fender have selected Ash as the tonewood of choice. As well as delivering a bright, cutting edge quality to the guitars tonal response, another pro of an Ash body is the fact that they are much more lightweight when compared to alternative Alder constructed models. This is certainly something to think about those looking to avoid fatigue onstage.
For the playing surface this instrument recieves a Maple neck and fingerboard with a 'C' shape profile and 21 highly desirable vintage style frets. The purest Telecaster fan will love this arrangment thanks to it's easy playing 7.25" radius and nostalgic authenticity. The neck has been finalised with a gloss finish and regular black dot inlay markers to guide players up and down the board the old fashioned way.
Being a Classic Series guitar this 50's Tele of course employess a vintage style bridge along with knurled chrome knobs and vintage spec chrome tuners. The tried and tested, familar Tele electronics system prevales with this traditional model as the FSR 50's Tele 90 employes a master volume, master tone and 3-way pickup selector switch.
