The Fender Gold Foil Telecaster Electric Guitar blends vintage flair with innovative design. Inspired by the ’60s era that shaped rock and roll, this Telecaster is equipped with dual Gold Foil mini-humbucker pickups for a crisp tone with punchy midrange and articulate highs. A mahogany body provides warmth and resonance, while the ebony fingerboard offers silky playability. The Gold Foil Telecaster delivers iconic Fender tone and feel for today’s musicians.
Gold Foil Pickups Capture Vintage Sparkle
The Gold Foil Telecaster is loaded with a pair of Gold Foil mini-humbucker pickups that provide the chime and gritty warmth of vintage designs. Originally found on budget guitars of the 1950s, Gold Foil pickups have become prized for their articulate tone and naturally compressed quality. The bridge pickup has an edgy, crystalline tone, while the neck pickup is warmer and rounder. Switch between pickups or combine them for a range of classic rock tones.
Mahogany Body Resonates with Richness
Unlike a typical Telecaster, the Gold Foil Telecaster has a mahogany body that produces a lush, resonant tone. Mahogany emphasizes midrange frequencies for a balanced sound with piano-like warmth and sustain. A gloss polyester finish protects the wood while allowing it to resonate freely. Mahogany’s tone complements the natural compression and midrange focus of the Gold Foil pickups, resulting in an instrument with exceptional sonic depth and character.
Fast-Playing Neck Delivers Modern Performance
While the Gold Foil Telecaster revives a vintage style, its maple neck provides a fast, low-friction playing feel for contemporary musicians. The neck has a comfortable C-shaped profile and satin urethane finish. A 12″ radius ebony fingerboard facilitates complex chords and bends with 21 medium-jumbo frets. The narrow 1.65″ nut width necks speeds up fingering without sacrificing comfort. Premium components like a synthetic bone nut and die-cast tuners provide exceptional tuning stability and sustain.
Iconic Style with Custom Details
The Gold Foil Telecaster has an iconic silhouette with custom touches that nod to rock and roll’s rebellious spirit. It features a black pickguard, knurled control knobs, and a “cut-off” bridge with brass saddles for cutting Tele twang. A matching painted headstock, white pearloid dot inlays, and white button tuners complete the vintage-inspired style. A deluxe gig bag is included for safe transport and storage.
