The first instruments to bear the Squier name were introduced in 1982, answering the decision for genuine Fender® designs at accessible prices. The Squier 40th Anniversary collection celebrates the 40-year journey of Fender’s entry-level brand with special editions of the Telecaster®, Stratocaster®, Jazzmaster®, Precision Bass®, and Jazz Bass®, all to be had in Gold Edition and Vintage Edition variants.
The Squier® 40th Anniversary Telecaster®, Vintage Edition is a soulful tribute model trimmed with a number of classic features for the unfashionable-minded Squier enthusiast. Featuring aged chrome hardware, an anodized aluminum pickguard, a vintage-tinted maple neck, an engraved anniversary neck plate and satin finish all through, this Tele® honors the heritage of the Squier catalog and its ancestry. Player-friendly refinements of this commemorative model come with a slim and comfy “C”-shaped neck profile for a very simple playing feel, vintage-style tuning machines and three-saddle string-through-body bridge for authentic performance and elegance, and Fender-Designed single-coil pickups with alnico 5 magnets for familiar Tele tone.
