Fender American Vintage II 1951 Telecaster® – Butterscotch Blonde

The Fender® American Vintage II series presents a
remarkably accurate take on the revolutionary
designs that altered the course of musical history.
Built with period-accurate bodies, necks and
hardware, premium finishes and meticulously voiced,
year-specific pickups, each instrument captures the
essence of authentic Fender craftsmanship and
tone.

Just one year after launching the Broadcaster®,
Fender received a cease-and-desist telegram from
the Fred Gretsch Mfg. Co. and was faced with
renaming its flagship electric guitar. Taking
inspiration from the booming growth and expansive
reach of television, the first blackguard Telecaster
rolled off the line in late 1951, and the model has
been in continuous production ever since.
Deceptively simple and totally groundbreaking, the
Telecaster® brought the solid body electric guitar to
the masses, inspiring countless musicians along the
way.

The American Vintage II 1951 Telecaster features an
ash body finished in Butterscotch Blonde to capture
the tone and look of the original. The substantial ‘51
“U”-shaped hard rock maple neck plays like a dream
with a 7.25” radius fingerboard and vintage tall frets.
Characteristic of production in 1951, 12th fret facedot spacing is narrow and the sole Phillips-head
fastener on the guitar is at the truss rod nut. The
triple brass saddle bridge, single-line “Fender
Deluxe” tuners and Pure Vintage ‘51 Telecaster
pickups deliver classic twang and authentic Fender
style.

The instruments in the American Vintage II series
are direct descendants of the original Fenders:
designed for players with a fine appreciation for
vintage Fender tone and feel and built with
unmatched quality, down to the last screw. These
are Fender electrics in their purest form: Fender
American Vintage II, the stuff of legends.
