Fender unveils 21-strong Vintera guitar and bass range

(Image credit: Fender)

Fender has announced the all-new Vintera range, made up of 21 electric guitars and basses, designed to replicate models from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s.

New Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Mustang, Jazzmaster, Jazz Bass, Precision Bass and Mustang Bass models all appear in the range, which boasts period-correct neck shapes and new Tim Shaw-designed pickups with decade-specific tones.

A host of vintage finishes have returned, too, including Mocha, Fiesta Red, Seafoam Green, Inca Silver, Burgundy Mist and Ice Blue Metallic.

Each decade-correct model also offers a Modified version that adds new features not found on the original.

Highlights for us include the matching Jazzmaster and Jaguar headstocks and that Bigsby-equipped Tele: get in our guitar rack, now!

The new range replaces the guitar giant’s existing made-in-Mexico Classic series, and that line-up’s Road Worn models have yet to appear here - although Fender has confirmed that they may crop up further down the line as special runs.
