Fender Classic Series ‘50s Telecaster

Fender Classic Series ’69 Telecaster Thinline
3-Tone Sunburst                              

The semi-hollow body design of 1968’s Telecaster® Thinline guitar was originally an attempt to reduce the weight of ash-body Telecasters.

The Classic Series '69 Telecaster Thinline brings it all back, with features including a lightweight semi-hollow mahogany body with f hole, U-shaped maple neck with 7.25”-radius maple fretboard, vintage-style single-coil Telecaster pickups and vintage-style bridge and tuners.

Pawn Shop Mustang Special
Lake Placid Blue               

The new Pawn Shop Series guitars draw inspiration from the eccentric and sometimes wildly innovative Fender creations of the mid-'60s and mid-’70s era that sometimes found their way to the outside world and into the more esoteric pages of Fender history. While they are brand-new members of the Fender family crafted with thoroughly modern sound and quality, Pawn Shop Series instruments now take the stage with a remarkable new identity as "guitars that never were but should have been."


American Special Precision Bass

The new Fender® American Special basses bring you the latest in U.S.-built quality and value. The American Special Precision Bass guitar features a slim neck profile, a high-gloss finish and the Fender Greasebucket™ tone circuit, which rolls off highs while maintaining low-end definition.


'70s Jazz Bass®
Black              

Fender’s ’70s Jazz Bass® captures the essence of the decade with striking looks and bright, full sound. That decade saw the bridge pickup placed closer to the bridge, creating a brighter, more cutting tone, and the addition of neck binding and block fretboard inlays. Features include ultra-slim neck with bullet truss rod nut, vintage-style alnico magnet Jazz Bass single-coil pickups, and vintage-style bridge.
