FENDER 2019 VINTERA 50s TELECASTER Sunburst Mint! + Hard Case Tele 78723

Regular price $950

This is a 2008 Fender Road Worn Telecaster in Sunburst finish in killer condition. This was made the first year of the Road Worn series. Believe it or not that's very important. The Fender shop started to water down their relic work shortly after this. If you're looking at Road Worns and you want a good relic guitar, stick with 2008-2010. That was when Fender was spending time on these and being innovative. If you look at recent 2019 Road Worns or even newer Vinteras, they are cookie cutter with very little actual wear.

Look at all the bumps, dings, edge wear, etc this baby has. All hardware has a dull glow and patina of wear. Fretboard has cool worn finish. Back of neck worn satin smooth. Just awesome! Even though cosmetically it's worn all over, the neck, frets and electronics are in great shape. If you like your guitars to feel and play like a well-worn old pair of blue jeans this might be right for you. This Tele has also been upgraded with a Joe Barden nickel bridge with brass compensated saddles. This is huge because compensated saddles let you dial in your intonation more accurately than the standard Tele barrel saddles. Weight is 7 pounds, 6 ounces. No case. I do a full cleaning and setup on all guitars. (Details on my setups and packing at bottom of listing.) Thanks!

Guitar Setup
All our setups are done by our in-house luthier. Setup includes new strings (9s or 10s depending on what the nut is cut for), overall polish, cleaning any gunk off fingerboard, oiling neck, and polishing frets when necessary. We spray out any pots that are noisy, turn the truss rod (if necessary) and set string height at low-to-medium action depending on string buzz present. Since setup is highly subjective you may need to get it set to your particular needs by your personal luthier. Basses get the same treatment minus the string change. Thanks!


I use quality boxes, thick bubble wrap, and peanuts to pack guitars. I have a very high rate of successful guitar and bass shipping (meaning few damaged instruments). I have been doing this 10 years and know how to pack well--with or without a hard case. I wrote a detailed story with photos on how I pack a guitar, which you can find on my StillKickinMusic site blog. If you Google "THERE IN ONE PIECE...How to Pack a Guitar" you will find it. Thanks.

Manufacturer Info

For players who want the style and sound of Fender’s golden era, we created the Vintera ‘50s Telecaster. Equipped with the coveted features that defined the decade—including period-accurate neck profile and playing feel, along with re-voiced pickups—this guitar has all of the bite and twang that made the Telecaster a legend.

For authentic, vintage-style tone we recreated our favorite set of ‘50s Telecaster pickups. Twangy and articulate, they have the crisp, snarling sound that put Fender on the musical map. The thick, fat-shouldered “Early 50s U”-shaped neck has a 7.25”-radius maple fingerboard with 21 vintage-style frets for classic playing feel. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three brass barrel saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang, while vintage-style tuning machines provide original-era aesthetics, rock-solid performance and tuning stability. Other features include vintage-style strap buttons, chrome hardware and four-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.
