Fender introduces the new Vintera series

Fender introduces the new Vintera series

The Vintera line replaces the longstanding Fender Classic series, with many of the new Vintera instruments featuring similar specs and appointments to their Classic series forebearers. Boasting a 21-strong lineup of Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Mustang, Jazzmaster, and Jazz, Precision and Mustang basses, the Vintera series also features decade specific pickups and neck profiles to offer a faithful recreation of the models you inevitably fell in love with somewhere along the line as a musician. 

 

 

To spice up the series, Fender have also offered a Modified variant for each era-specific model, adding appointments such as dual humbuckers and Bigsbys to tantalise those who like to rev up their instruments beyond the stock standard. Let’s dive in and check out each decade to see what’s on offer from the Vintera series.
