Fender 52 Telecaster Wiring Diagram

That said, an NOS Nocaster will set you back £2099, so therein lies the difference. If you like the aged look, then the only answer that doesn’t involve sandpaper is to distress it the old-fashioned way… by gigging the hell out of it! So, rather than evoking the worn-in comfort of your favourite pair of jeans or an old leather jacket, there’s something a little stiff and new about the immediate feel of this guitar.

 

The ’52’s vintage profile frets are immaculately fitted with no sharp ends, yet the gauge of the fretwire seems a fraction fatter and a little closer to medium than some we’ve encountered. But there are plenty of impressively vintage-accurate features and the attention to detail is apparent in the choice of slot rather than crosshead screws, even down to the neck bolts and tuner screws.

 

The neck itself is one piece of maple with traces of a light flame on the back, while the ‘U’ profile is a decent rounded palm-full, without quite being as chunky as the Nocaster spec. With a less flat playing surface than most modern Teles, the ’52 fights back deliciously and provides the perfect platform for emotive lead playing and gritty, aggressive rhythms.

 

Fender 52 Telecaster Hot Rod Review

 

 

La série American Vintage présente de toutes nouvelles déclinaisons de modèles originaux, qui viennent redonner vie à l’histoire et à l’héritage de Fender d’une manière authentique. Dotés de caractéristiques clés et de spécificités techniques incontournables, depuis les années 50 jusqu’au milieu des années 60, les nouveaux instruments de la série American Vintage s’ancrent profondément dans les racines de Fender. En perpétuant adroitement son inébranlable volonté de créer des guitares américaines novatrices, la marque Fender démontre clairement qu’en plus de savoir où elle va, elle n’oublie pas d’où elle vient.

La série American Vintage a pendant longtemps procuré à Fender ses meilleures ventes de guitares. Sa commercialisation, au début des années 80, était en fait l’un des signes avant-coureurs du retour fracassant de Fender, tandis que s’achevait le règne de CBS. Aujourd’hui, c’est non sans audace que Fender repart de zéro pour présenter une série American Vintage originale comportant de nouvelles caractéristiques et spécificités, ainsi que le plus haut niveau de précision vintage jamais atteint. Au lieu de purement et simplement remplacer nos anciens modèles, nous avons repensé le concept de la réédition vintage de A à Z, en restaurant les outils originaux, en élaborant de nouveaux micros, en retravaillant les couleurs vintage, et plus encore. Pour ne rien laisser au hasard, cette nouvelle aspiration est basée sur d’authentiques guitares vintage. Le contrat a été rempli, et pour preuve : chaque instrument American Vintage délivre une sonorité tout bonnement magique.

C’est avec l’American Vintage ’52 que le souci du détail est le plus frappant : c’est le grand retour aux fondamentaux, avec un corps, un manche et des micros se targuant des meilleures caractéristiques possibles (sonorités, courbes, pourtours, radius, etc.) et s’inspirant de quelques modèles incroyables comme la ’52 Telecaster. Parmi les caractéristiques haut de gamme, on trouve un corps en frêne équipé d’une plaque de protection noire à un pli avec finition en fine laque de nitrocellulose (coloris Butterscotch Blonde plus clair), un manche épais en érable en forme de « U » aux rebords généreusement enroulés, une volute de tête sculptée garantissant un confort supérieur en première position, un capuchon de sélecteur cylindrique remis au goût du jour, un espacement des mécaniques vintage permettant aux cordes de passer réellement au-dessus du sillet (en os), un chevalet vintage doté de trois pontets en laiton, et des potentiomètres de contrôle bombés, chromés et moletés.

What if you could transport Leo Fender from his Fullerton workbench in the mid-’50s to the present day? What would you show him first? We’d show him this ultra-cool American Deluxe Ash Strat and pat him on the back for being such a genius! This beauty of a Stratocaster updates the venerable solidbody but keeps its character, vibe, and feel intact. You’ll love the way the N3 noiseless pickups give you timeless Strat tone – with hum-free performance. You’ll also appreciate all the little touches (including the awesome S-1 switching system) that make this axe a perfect Strat for modern players.

You know the look. You know the tone. You crave that vibe you can only get from a genuine Fender Stratocaster. From its iconic double-cutaway body shape to the unmistakable snap and awesome tone you get from its 3-pickup configuration, the Strat isn’t just legendary; no, it’s way more: it’s what folks the world over think of when they hear the words “electric guitar.” Here’s the perfect Strat for you! Yes, you’ll love this awesome axe’s super-comfortable maple neck, trio of magical-sounding single-coil pickups, trem bridge, and top-grade hardware. You deserve a guitar that lets you play your best – and looks great doing it. This Strat is it!

The list of Strat players is a who’s who of rock, country, and jazz legends. From Holly to Hendrix, from Eric Johnson to Eric Clapton, so many awe-inspiring players have made – and continue to make – the Strat their go-to instrument of choice. Here’s your chance to join the best!

Fender 52 Telecaster Craigslist

1952 Telecaster specs:

  • The lead pickup no longer has the two notches in the black pickup base for the winding wires.
  • Gradual use of phillips head screws replaces slot head screws (this change was not complete till 1953).
  • Knurled chrome plated brass knobs with a round top.
  • Late 1952: pressed jack cup replaced milled jack cup. An added internal metal plate is used inside the body jack hole to secure milled cup.
  • Walnut peghead truss rod plug is more oval shaped.
  • Late 1952: Wiring changes on Tele. Now instead of the last knob being a “blend” control (allowing both pickups to be used at the same time), it now becomes a tone knob. The 1950-1952 wiring used a .05mfd cap between the 3 way switch and the volume pot, and a 15k resistor coming off the 3 way switch.

1953 Telecaster specs:

  • Neck fingerboard dots change spacing. On pre-1953 models, dots are about 1″ (center to center) apart at the 12th fret. On 1953 and later models, the dot spacing is about 1 1/8″ center to center.
  • New wiring on a Telecaster. (Note the wiring change was late 1952.) That is, the 3 position switch forward position was the neck pickup with a “woof tone” capacitor (no tone adjustment.) Middle switch position was the neck pickup with the tone knob implemented. Rear switch position was the bridge pickup with no tone adjustment. This wiring used a .05mfd cap soldered between the two pots, and a .1mfd cap between the volume pot’s ground and the 3 way switch.
  • Flat-side (“poodle”) guitar-shaped cases used during 1953.

A great looking teambuilt ’52 Telecaster with an NOS Nocaster blonde finish, which allows some of the grain in the ash body to show through. The Nocaster “U” shape of the neck feels nice and full, the modern wiring allows for full use of the Abby handwound pickups, and the feel of medium jumbo frets and a 9.5″ radius give this Tele the best of both worlds; vintage looks and easy modern playability.

Fender 52 Telecaster Copper

 

 

I got this really nice guitar about 4 months ago. I posted pictures the day I got it. The guitar was virtually new when I got it. It was made in 1998. It’s copper so you won’t see many around. It has all the case candy except the strap(broke). The guitar is still almost new! It plays awesome and sounds better than I expected it to sound.

Always entertaining a trade for a strat.
