Black Dot Music
Fender revolutionised popular music and guitar playing in the early 1950s with the introduction of the Telecaster® guitar. Designed simply, smartly and elegantly, it quickly became a trusted and revered go-to instrument for guitarists everywhere, and it created a new sound for the 1950s and decades to come at the very heart of popular music.
The Classic Series ’50s Telecaster Lacquer evokes the instrument in the decade of its origin, with an authentic nitrocellulose lacquer finish on its ash body. Other features include a “C”-shaped maple neck, 7.25″-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets and black-dot inlays, dual vintage-style single-coil alnico pickups with three-way switching, single-ply white pickguard, knurled chrome control knobs, vintage-style string-through-body bridge with three chrome “barrel” saddles, and vintage-style tuners. Tweed case included.
AUTHENTIC ’50S TELE® STYLE
For guitarists who must have the instrument’s original-era tone, look and feel, the Classic Series ’50s Telecaster Lacquer epitomizes the guitar in the decade of its debut, with unmistakable early Tele® style and snap. With its authentic vintage-style features and nitrocellulose lacquer finish in classic 2-Color Sunburst, everything about it takes you back to the time of diners, “Ike for President,” cars with fins, two-stepping western swing, a wild new kind of music called rock ‘n’ roll, and an upstart little Southern California company called Fender.

NITROCELLULOSE LACQUER FINISH
Nitrocellulose lacquer is one of the great original-era Fender electric guitar finishes, and is still used today on select instruments. Thin, porous and delicate, it’s a premium finish prized for sonic qualities that let body woods breathe with their true tonal character, and for an appearance that ages and wears in a distinctive way appealing to many players.
