Fender Fullerton Era American Vintage 1952 RI Telecaster Butterscotch Blonde Pre-Owned 1982 ID-11626
Fender Fullerton Era Telecaster 1952 Reissue
The Fender Telecaster is one of the most popular if not the most popular Electric guitar ever made. The '52 reissue faithfully pays homage to the simplicity and revolutionary sound of the early "Pre-CBS" Telecaster. The Telecaster has been seen in the arms of some of the worlds most popular musicians such as Elvis Presely, Merle Haggard, and Pete Townshend, who has even specified his favorite Telecaster as the 1952 telecaster.
The thought of Reissued guitars began in 1981, when two of Fender’s executives – president Bill Schultz and V.P. Roger Balmer – decided that they’d had enough of hearing of the glory days of the pre-CBS era. Their first step was to bring in Dan Smith from Yamaha and make him head of Fender’s guitar division. Smith knew of the high regard players had of the pre-CBS Fenders, and their even lower regard for the ’70s equivalents.
Smith, Schultz, and Balmer consulted with some of the key employees of the pre-CBS Fender era, including designer Freddie Tavares, pickup winder Gail Paz, and final assembly inspector Gloria Fuentes, each of whom had over 20 years experience at Fender. And John Page was also brought in; he would later lead Fender’s renowned Custom Shop.
The initial goal wasn’t so much to make an obvious reissue line, but to make Strats and Teles that were closer to their original specs. The instruments allowed the company to work vintage features loved and demanded by players into its standard line, and led to historic reissues being offered in both its standard line and as part of its Custom Shop.
