The ’52 Tele is the lone guitar to make the transition from the old series (in fact, it was there from the beginning of Fender’s reissues back in ’82).Our tester had a spot-on butterscotch color and a less-pronounced V profile, period-specific cast jack cup, switch tip, and pickups that were punchy, with ample twang, a lot of overtones, and snap that was kind to the ears.Fullerton era cases had a flaired upper hing on the center latch while the Corona era cases had a square shape.

The overall clarity and balance between the bridge and neck pickups was excellent – much better than previous ’52 reissue Teles.The neck pickup’s strong output and thicker tone produced a fatter middle-position sound with tons of jangle.The ’65 Jazzmaster was dressed with an Aztec Gold finish, bound rosewood fretboard with large pearl dot inlays, era-correct white witch-hat knobs, new pickups, and a reworked fine-tune vibrato.Fender American Vintage Series Price: ,400 retail/
