Exclusive to 2022 — Vintage Edition Tele!
Four decades of guitar-building history culminate in the Squier 40th Anniversary Vintage Edition Telecaster. This vintage-inspired telecaster comes dressed up with seriously groovy appointments — but only in 2022. From the black anodized aluminum pickguard to the aged chrome hardware, this 40th Anniversary Telecaster is studded with striking style. It also boasts a classic Fender maple neck and fingerboard combo to add to this axe’s utterly timeless look. A pair of Fender-designed alnico single-coils equips this guitar with an authentic Tele Twang, producing rich lows and cutting highs. Stunning looks, comfortable playability, and incredible sound: the Vintage Edition series is a gold mine of 40 years of high-quality Squier instruments. Don’t wait, this classic Telecaster will only be available in 2022.
Custom set of alnico single-coil pickups
To get a real vintage sound from a guitar, discerning guitarists know that you need to start with great pickups. The Fender-designed alnico single-coil Tele pickups in the Squier 40th Anniversary Vintage Edition Telecaster nail those classic tones. You’ll love the clear, punchy sounds, which are perfect for playing country, blues, jazz, rock, or pop. Sonically (and visually), these pickups punctuate the vintage appeal of this guitar.
Vintage appointments with modern playability
The alnico pickups, the 3-saddle bridge, and the vintage tuning keys cover the vintage side of things. But the 9.5-inch fingerboard radius gives you a comfortable playing surface that allows for wider string bends than the 7.25-inch radius of vintage guitars. While being rounded enough for comfortable chording, this radius is perfect for double-stop bends, wide vibrato, and even bends over a whole step. And the modern “C”-shaped neck feels just right, smoothing the way for fleet-fingered fretting.
