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.

The Fender Vintage-Style Machine Heads are a perfect fit for the Roadworn Vintera. With vintage styling and excellent tuning stability these are a great set of Machine Heads.


This guitar has a lovely Alder body. Leo Fender has used alder as the mainstay of the Fender bodies for years since the mid-50s. Alder has a strong, clear, full-bodied sound, with beefy mids and excellent lows. It also offers a decent amount of sustain.


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!



The Bridge pickup features alnico 3 magnets that are flush-mounted for vintage “Blackguard” bite. The Neck pickup uses alnico 2 for rich, detailed warmth found in early 50's Telecasters.


The vintage-style Tele bridge is essentially unchanged from the original Telecaster bridge design. Made from the highest-quality materials to improve longevity, this bridge produces excellant sustain and has that classic look we all know and love.
