OVERVIEW

Korina as an elegantly crafted take on a timeless Fender classic.

Fender have chosen this premium wood to fashion the Limited Edition American Vintage '52 Telecaster Korina as an elegantly crafted take on a timeless Fender classic. In addition to the sophistication of its body wood and Blackguard Blonde finish, pure and rich Telecaster sound comes from its dual American Vintage '52 Telecaster single-coil pickups.

      Comments about Fender Limited Edition Vintage '52 Korina Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I was trying out just about every tele made from mexican to custom shop and ended up settling on this one for a couple of reasons:
      The neck fit my hand really well. I love the shape and its beefier vintage feel. My hands are fairly large and it just feels very comfortable when playing for long periods. The pickups are very well rounded. The bridge is bright and relatively powerful. The neck is smooth and almost jazzy. Not as powerful as many of the newer style teles I was trying out, so if you need a heavy blues grit tone, you may want to swap the neck one out. The korina body is another huge plus. It's pretty heavy, but the tone is more bassy and has amazing sustain. The ash body version is definitely lighter, but lacks a bit of the low end tone. The finish on mine is very different than many I have seen. It's almost a yellow. Can faintly see the wood grain under the finish. I love it. Everything on the guitar is very clean and well crafted. Frets are dressed perfectly, paint is perfect, etc - not a single tiny flaw. You get what you pay for! I have owned probably 50 guitars and this is one of the best as far as quality control I have come across. Even came setup correctly. The included case is top quality and is lightweight.
      If you love the vintage teles, this one will definitely do the trick without spending the equivalent of a new car for a true vintage. I tend to go though guitars a lot and I feel I finally found one that will stick with me.

        Comments about Fender Limited Edition Vintage '52 Korina Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        Solid performance and proven over time. Poor fit of the pick guard gets in the way of playing the guitar. Korina wood feel is lightweight and sure to be a collector piece.
