Squier Vintage Modified Telecaster Deluxe
Squier introduces the Vintage Modified Telecaster Deluxe, a Tele equipped with Fender designed Wide Range Humbuckers.
This guitar is part of the new Vintage Modified models that Squier is making available come summer of 2012.
This guitar features a unique combination of a Strat head, a Tele body and Les Paul style dual humbucking pickup electronics. This combination results in a Tele that not only looks unique, but also sounds very different from the typical Telecaster. Instead of the usual country and pop, this telecaster has a pickup combination that is designed to cater to the high gain needs of punk, rock or metal. Although it appears to be having an identity crisis, its unique look will make sure that you're guitar doesn't just fade out in the background with the other standard models.
At the core of this guitar is a Basswood body cut in the traditional Telecaster single-cutaway shape. The body is wrapped in gloss polyester finish of either Black or Olympic white, giving this 25.5" scale guitar its distinct vintage look. A "C" shape maple neck with 21 medium jumbo frets is connected to the body via traditional bolts, offering modern playability while retaining traditional construction.
The Vintage Modified Telecaster Deluxe features chrome hardware, including the cover of its dual Wide Range humbucking pickups. Both pickups are controlled via a 3-way pickup selector and they both have dedicated black-skirted volume and tone knobs. This guitar features a unique looking 3-ply pickguard that matches its vintage appeal. Finally, a chrome string-through-body bridge rounds up its features.
