Gold foil pickups have an alluring quality to them that has kept many guitarists and bassists hooked on them dating back to the 1950’s. They were typically made for and placed in entry-level instruments and were known to be inconsistent in tonal qualities. Yet, they sounded and looked unique enough to be special and sought after, still revered by so many all these years later. Now, they can be wound consistently, and very clearly belong in more than just entry-level instruments. Fender has gone and taken full advantage of that with this brand-new guitar.
The Fender Gold Foil Collection Telecaster is equipped with two gold foil mini-humbucker pickups. They are warm, wide, articulate, and certainly a visual compliment to this glossy Candy Apple Burst finish. Traditional Tele wiring lives underneath the 3-position blade, volume, and tone control. A maple ‘60s “C” shaped neck with ebony fingerboards span across the whole collection. This Telecaster’s board has a 12” radius, and white pearloid dot inlays. A “cut off” vintage-style Tele bridge with brass saddles, 3-ply B/W/B pickguard, and matching painted headcap round out this tribute to guitars of the initial “Gold Foil Era” nicely.
Whether you’re a sucker for gold foil pickups, the stylish aesthetic of the guitar bodies and finishes that housed them, or just love a perfectly playable modern-day Fender, this Gold Foil Collection Telecaster has all of the above.
