Fender Road Worn 50 Telecaster BLD

Electric Guitar

Some things always get cooler with age, and this is especially true for electric guitars and basses. Over time they develop a distinctive personality, become more attractive and feel better and better in the hand. The guitars and basses of the Fender Road Worn series show signs of their past and provide the player with a spectacular "aged" design that brings to life the spirit of glorious rock 'n' roll times. They simultaneously offer the modern features, playability and excellent quality that one can expect from Fender. For the instruments of the Road Worn series, Fender classics, made with production techniques of the world famous Fender Custom Shop, were the godfathers of the '50s and '60s.

It was the first Fender workhorse and the original "road warrior" guitar. Fender's long road began with the Telecaster, a guitar that became surprisingly more and more attractive and felt better and better the more it was played. It is beautiful when bought new, but becomes absolutely phenomenal after a few thousand miles of touring. The new Fender Road Worn '50s Tele with maple fretboard offers the aged look and the vintage feel with which it looks, sounds and feels as though it had been made half a century ago. It is made according to the specifications of the 1950s original, nitro lacquered and equipped with TEX-MEX pickups and 6105 frets.

An alternative to the custom shop: the telecaster roadworn 50

Jean-Christophe, 20.09.2012
It's been a long time since I was looking for a telecaster with this particular sound and this typical twang.
The trials of several models have not convinced me: american standard: too clean and soulless, too smooth sound, baja: a rather nice sound but a handle not very comfortable and very average finishes, custom shop: too expensive for My budget compared to the quality / price ratio.
I was really on the sound and touch of a 1957 telecaster and that's what I was looking for.
Mission impossible for less than 900 euros, and well no I have been bluffed by the roadworn.
Good it is delivered in cover fender, it is not a case but better than nothing.
By opening the cover, we discover this look so special and very well worked.
The body is made of well-veined ash and a relicage close to the custom shop models: miros cracks on the nitrocellulose varnish, wear of games not exaggerated, chrome patinated just right.
The pickguard makes it less realistic and is not of the quality of the rest but can change.
The handle gives the impression of exaggerated wear at first glance, and the urethane varnish does not give quite the same rendering as a worn nitro varnish.
As much visually the body is at the height of the custom shop, but not the handle.
The head is superbly connected with its small ops and its patinated mechanics.
OUAH, very light and sound already very good and strong empty (the model I received was mounted in 10-52 instead of the usual 10-46 !!).
The handle is a real treat, with its particular form of mixing different telecaster profiles of the 50's. Moreover the 6105 frets bring a sustain and an ease of play that one finds rarely on sleeves with the radius of 7.25 ''. The precision of the vintage frets is retained and the ease of the bends and other jumbo frets is gained.
It is the SON that I sought, "couillu", of super medium, in short the happiness. I check again, but it is well marked "made in mexico" and foratnt it is one of the 2 or 3 best telecaster I tried.
The intermediate position makes it possible to calm a bit the beast with a perfect sound for ryhmics in its clear.
The neck pickup is like all the 50's tvs pretty "muddy", ie very hot with lots of bass, and a lack of spice for those who are used to the strat.
We drive the drive, it's still happiness, the microphones react super well to light saturation or full thrust. All the vintage sounds are there, we can do everything as long as we do not want to make metal.
One of the best telecaster of the market for a very reasonable price. FONCEZ

Right in front: I am immortally immersed in this guitar.

Optics: In my subjective opinion, Blonde is probably the most beautiful color to destroy. The little quirks that were added to this guitar look just great. Even if you know it is a false hare, it feels like you have a 50 year old instrument in your hand. Somehow, my model is clearly decent "destroyed" than in the photos. Especially the neck and the fingerboard are not so worn out. You're also very good.

Processing: Everything sits, nothing wobbles and looks good. Top

Features: Well, she does not have many features, but she does not have to have stupid category. The lack of Internet access interferes very much and I personally actually in my instruments always have Bluetooth. Can one retrofit.

Playability: The neck is madness. He feels sober and playing is just fun. The handling has really great similarities to real vintage guitars. Of course, a Strat is better or easier to play, but it is now a tele.

Sound: No matter how you screw on the pot, it always sounds cool.
Possibly. A bit aggressive in the heights but exactly we want from a tele.
She feels from clean to crunch pudelwohl, with higher gain she tends to a little mud.
I use them mainly in indie and punk. There she feels very comfortable.
The dirty and powerful sound fits perfectly.
Compared to my Strat (HSS equipped, Mexico), the tele only hits at high-gain worse. Otherwise, the sound of the tele is always a bit more lively, not as dry as in Strat.
But there is a small deduction.
The guitar produces a slight noise, which only stops when you touch any metal part on the body. Probably only a small easy to fix error, but in my opinion should be noticed in the final inspection. When playing the game is not at all but at 1000 euros you do not want something like that.
Despite this small drawback the sound is top.

Conclusion: If you want a tele, which can mix up the top can be found here if the optics pleases.
Here you can see the valuable components clearly and hardly notice the production in Mexico.
Thank you Thomann you are the best partner agency in the world!
Great guitar, I love her :)

Update: The fingerboard is significantly less geage in the current series, the one could update with the product photo times.
