The 1955 Telecaster, recreated with period-accurate, hand-wound pickups.
The 1955 Telecaster, also known as the “white guard” Tele is an all-time classic with features including a single-ply white pickguard, translucent white blonde finish, smooth barrel steel bridge saddles, staggered bridge pickup pole pieces and a chunky neck profile. In this faithful recreation, the Fender Custom Shop has captured the tone, playability, look and feel of this archetypal model.
The two-piece select ash body wears a heavy checked nitrocellulose lacquer finish, and the tinted one-piece rift-sawn maple neck features a chunky ’54 “U” profile, topped by a 9.5”-radius fingerboard with 21 narrow tall frets. Period-correct hand-wound ’55/’56 pickups are paired with a three-way switch and Fat ’50s Tele wiring for strong tone with transparent bloom. Additional features include a single-ply parchment pickguard, ’55 Tele bridge with smooth barrel steel saddles, vintage-style tuning machines, bone nut and disk string tree. A deluxe hardshell case, strap and certificate of authenticity is also included.
