New guitars redesigned and revoiced to replicate classic 1960s and 1970s tones

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (July 13, 2011) — The newest Telecaster® guitar models in Fender’s acclaimed American Vintage series are fully equipped with features redesigned and re-voiced to produce classic 1960s and 1970s tones.

The rich history of Fender guitars began with the Telecaster in February  1951. It was the world’s first successful solid-body electric guitar,  transforming the role of the guitar in popular music and becoming an  enduring model of form and function in the process. The new American  Vintage Telecaster guitar models embody history and innovation,  continuing with Fender’s tradition of creating cutting-edge instruments.  
Prized for its distinctive tone, the American Vintage ’69 Telecaster Thinline is equipped with a semi-hollow mahogany body with f hole and gloss  lacquer finish; C-shape maple neck with gloss lacquer finish; maple  fingerboard; American Vintage Telecaster single-coil neck and bridge  pickups with three-position switching, vintage-style three-saddle  strings-through-body Telecaster bridge, “top hat” pickup switch tip and  vintage-style “F” tuners.
The American Vintage ’72 Telecaster Thinline authentically evokes  a historic tone characteristic to its time. It includes period-correct  details such as a semi-hollow ash body with f hole; maple fingerboard;  Fender Wide Range humbucking neck and bridge pickups, vintage-style  Stratocaster strings-through-body hardtail bridge, a three-bolt neck  plate with Micro-TiltTM adjustment, bullet truss rod nut and  vintage-style “F” tuners.
Tastefully crafted with distinctive features, the American Vintage ’72 Telecaster Custom includes a solid ash body with gloss lacquer finish; C-shaped maple  neck with gloss lacquer finish; maple fingerboard; American Vintage  single-coil telecaster bridge pickup, three-position switch with aged  white tip, and a vintage-style three-saddle strings-through-body  telecaster bridge.
The Fender American Vintage series guitars are available at authorized  Fender dealers. For more information, and to locate a dealer near you,  go to www.fender.com.
