Check out this Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s and tap into iconic "Black Guard" Tele sound at an affordable price.
Original "black guard" experience
Certain electric guitars are credited with shaping modern music, and the 1950s Fender "black guard" Telecaster is absolutely one. With this Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s, you can have a similar vintage tone and look at a price that any guitarist can afford. From the brass string saddles and vintage-style tuners to the black pickguard, this guitar is a great Telecaster with an unmistakable '50s vibe.
Custom set of Alnico V single-coil pickups
The custom set of Alnico V single-coil Tele pickups in this Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s nail those classic tones. You'll love the clear, punchy sounds, which make them at home playing country, blues, jazz, rock, or pop. Thanks to these Alnico V pickups, the vintage appeal of this guitar extends far past the black pickguard.
Vintage appointments with modern playability
The black pickguard, Alnico V pickups, brass string saddles, and vintage tuning keys cover the vintage side of things. But the 9.5" fretboard radius gives you a comfortable playing surface that allows for wider string bends than the 7.25" radius of vintage guitars. This radius is perfect for double-stop bends, wide vibrato, and even bends over a whole step. And the modern C-shape neck stays out of your way for plenty of fleet-fingered playing.
