About this deal

great price for a vintera...and its a limited edition ....they'll probably be some moans about it being built in mexico...but i've got the 70's deluxe version ...and its a nice guitar

cant go wrong with a tele


Limited Edition '70s TelecasterFitted with a set of Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele single-coil pickups, this limited edition Fender Vintera '70s Telecaster has a potent voice that'll outshine frankly any other guitar of a similar price. A period-correct neck profile, "F"-stamped tuners and a vintage-style bridge make this an inspiring time-capsule instrument with an iconic look, luscious tone and addictive feel.

Timeless Fender ConstructionFender has relied on a favoured tonewood combination for the Vintera '70s Tele. Boasting an Alder body, this medium-weight material keeps things balanced across the frequency spectrum; the perfect tonal foundation for the pokey pickups. The Alder body is joined with a bolt-on Maple neck, bringing out some bright top-end snap that gives the instrument a very responsive and immediate feel.

Vintage "C" Neck ProfileA time-honoured vintage "C” neck profile provides a comfortable feel; substantial enough to keep the old-school aficionados happy without alienating contemporary players. Vintage frets also contribute to the nostalgic feel, as well as the rounded 7.25" fingerboard radius.

Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele PickupsFor authentic Fender tone, a pair of US-wired Custom Shop “Twisted” Tele pickups deliver hot high-output Telecaster twang with a dash of Strat-like chime. Punchy with overdrive and vibrant with cleans, these single-coils cover a lot of sonic territory!

Old-School HardwareA traditional Tele bridge with three slotted steel barrel saddles gives this Telecaster its iconic spanky sound, while the period-accurate "F"-stamped machine heads offer '70s-era aesthetics and rock-solid tuning stability.

    Present climate all guitars are getting hard to shift on the second market ...during lock down it didn't matter where it was built if it was a mid range one it would sell..and pretty quickly

    Been trying to sell a couple myself ...one I've changed my mind on..the other I'm still hoping to move on ...but with prices that people are offering at the mo..I'm tempted just to put that one away for now

    Just as a note ....fender squire toronado...which I really like the look of ...new 300 quid .....the original made in Mexico ones that had a limited run in the late 90's early 2000's ....£1000 upwards ..if you can find one (edited)

    Personally MIA would be bottom of my list. Does not live up to the price or QA. Go MIJ or MIM if you want to get fancy, nothing wrong with Korea either.

    Things aren't like they used to be, you can easily get a cosmetically sound guitar for little money now, it's parts which get the budget cuts, electronics especially, and build location won't help you there.

    Problem is they don't hold their value and as most guitars find their way onto the second hand market that's a problem. The US ones seem to drop in value for a couple of years but invariably are worth more than you paid after 5. I bet you couldn't sell this for £750 in 5 years. If you are planning to keep it then maybe it's worth the money.
