AGED TO PERFECTION

Those who prize older instruments with the battered look of years on the road and the scars of countless gigs can still have that authentically aged vibe without spending decades on the road themselves. The irresistibly cool look of finish worn through to the wood, rusted hardware, a bruised neck and yellowing plastic parts are yours right away with Road Worn instruments.The Road Worn '50s Telecaster sounds, looks and feels like it's been there and back, has more than a few miles on it, and then some. With authentic 1950s styling aged to impart a lifetime of wear and tear that has somehow made it get even better, it's a must-have for the guitar player who appreciates broken-in look and vibe.

BUTTERSCOTCH OVER ALDER

Vintage Blonde over ALDER with a subtle grain showing through finish.

The Tex-Mex single-coil pickups on this guitar are over-wound for tight, clear bass, sparkling high end and maximum output ideal for everything from soaring clean tone to earthy Texas grit.

7.25" FINGERBOARD RADIUS

The fingerboard radius is an important spec that describes the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard. This instrument has a 7.25" fingerboard radius, with a more pronounced "vintage-style" curvature typical of Fender guitars from the 1950s, ’60 and ’70s. It’s the way to go for those who grew up with vintage instruments or simply prefer the feel of greater fingerboard curvature.

AGED NITRO

Nitro finishes age in a very different way to the modern Poly Finishes. They also resonate differently.

As nitro ages it cracks which is often from expanding and shrinking during change of temperature. The Fender Road Worn Series has nicely aged cracks and marks which reveal the underlying white primer.

This guitar will continue to age as you play it and make it your own!
