Fender debut new Road Worn Vintera models

The Vintera Road Worn ’50s Telecaster, ’50s Stratocaster, ’60s Stratocaster and ’70s Telecaster Deluxe will share identical specs to last year’s Vintera run, with the addition of a distressed finish to add some vintage flair to each model. 


The Road Worn ’50s Stratocaster boasts a maple fretboard and era-correct beveled alnico 5 pickups for a snappy response and bell-like tone, and is available in distressed Surf Green and Fiesta Red finishes. 



Similarly, the Road Worn ’50s Telecaster delivers a period-correct neck profile and feel, while recreated ’50s Telecaster alnico 2 and alnico 3 pickups provide that irresistable twang we know and love. These ones are available in Vintage Blonde and the ever-cool Lake Placid Blue.



With a mid-60s C-shaped neck, six-point synchronised tremolo and quacky vintage pickups, the Road Worn ’60s Stratocaster looks to be the perfect counterpart for any bluesy player. With both Lake Placid Blue and Firemist Gold finishes on offer, we feel like these models could end up being the most popular of this new bunch.



Finally, Fender have also shared details of the Road Worn ’70s Telecaster Deluxe, a recreation of their 1972 Wide-Range humbucker-equipped monster that’s won over indie and alternative rock players time and time again. This one features revoiced pikcups and a period-correct neck profile for an authentic playing experience, and is available in Olympic White and Daphne Blue finishes. 



All of these Road Worn Vintera models are slated to arrive to dealers in Q4, so make sure you keep your eyes peeled for when they land some time in October.
