What Haworth Guitars say:
The Fender American Original '50s Telecaster Left-Handed with Maple Fingerboard is a high-quality Vintage USA Tele model by Fender.
At Haworth Guitars we love this Fender American Original 50s Left-Hand Telecaster Guitar's vintage 1950s look and feel, ash body, bone nut, comfortable 1952 U maple neck, 21 vintage tall frets and it's traditional nitrocellulose lacquer finish as well as the Pure Vintage '52 single-coil Tele pickups.
What Fender has to say:
The ultimate blue-collar guitar, the Telecaster launched a musical revolution when we released it. Quickly adopted by working guitarists who were enamored with its trend-setting sound, feel and unique style, the Telecaster laid the foundation for modern country, blues, and even heavy metal (in Jimmy Page’s hands). The American Original ‘50s Telecaster LH has all of the authentic Fender touches that made the Telecaster a star of the studio and stage, while adding modern feel and pickup switching to this classic guitar.
