Distinctive Tele® Style

For the Classic Player Baja '60s Telecaster, Fender Custom Shop Master Builder Chris Fleming has taken his original Baja Telecaster design and upgraded it with full-on 1960s features and vibe, including an alder body, rosewood fingerboard, a comfortable '60s "C"-shaped neck profile and American Vintage pickups. The other great features are also still available with this model, including the special switching and circuitry, engraved Fender Custom Shop neckplate, American Vintage strings-thru-body Telecaster bridge and more.

Features
  • Alder body
  • American Vintage ’52 Tele® (neck) and ’58 Tele (bridge) single-coil pickups
  • Special four-way pickup switch (offers both pickups in series in addition to standard parallel)
  • S-1™ switch for even more tonal options
  • American Vintage strings-thru-body Telecaster bridge with three brass saddles
Four-Way Pickup Switching
Four-Way Pickup Switching

The Classic Player Baja '60s Tele’s four-way pickup switch adds a fourth tonal variation to the standard Tele complement. Position four combines the neck and bridge pickups in series for fatter tone and higher output, creating raw rocking tone.

S-1™ Switch
S-1™ Switch

For even more tonal versatility, pushbutton S-1 switching presents special pickup and wiring modifications. On this special Telecaster model, the S-1 switch is built into the volume control knob and changes the pickup wiring from in-phase to out-of-phase when both pickups are on.

Thick "C" Neck Profile

This Telecaster has a slightly thicker neck than most Tele models, keeping the "C" profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) that provides such a smooth and comfortable fretting-hand feel.
