We've been patiently waiting to see if Fender would release new relic'd Road Worn electric guitar (opens in new tab) models that didn't cost Custom Shop prices and now they've lifted the lid on a slew of Mexican-made Vintera additions that celebrate classic Fender history in finishes and spec.

There's limited edition '50s and '60s Strats and Teles (opens in new tab), plus a '70s Deluxe Tele model shipping from 10 September with prices at £1,099 for each model. 

Let's take a look…
