Fender overhauls its most affordable USA-made instruments for with new pickups, a fresh lick of paint and plenty more besides. The political uncertainty of recent times has seen the British pound hit record lows against the US dollar, and the prices of North American-made guitars and basses have risen accordingly. Very cool indeed. On our review Stratocaster, we find a trio of new Yosemite single-coils. The guitar-pop pendulum has certainly swung back towards Fender in recent years and their innate clarity and percussive quality means these instruments seem to be able to find space in any mix, no matter how dense or inorganic the surroundings. The middle setting provides a satisfying range of sweetness and twang that rewards right-hand dynamics, while the Greasebucket tone control extends the range of usable sounds further than usual.

You don't know what a Telecaster should sound like if you've never auditioned an American-made or Custom Shop 'type reissue. Only a handful of classic-era electric guitars genuinely qualify for the tag of "the only one you'll ever need". Here we look at the new Vintage '52 Telecaster from Fender's completely overhauled American Vintage range. Your humble scribe has been around Teles of all eras, both as a player and repairer, and it's remarkable just how much the neck and even the body shapes have altered, how the transition from one curve into another can vary drastically, and how tiny variations in edge radius - even as inconsequential as those round the headstock - can drastically alter the vibe. Fender has spent the last 30 years re-learning its past and with the new American Vintage range has homed in on what it sees as the three essential vintage Teles: the quintessential ash-bodied 'black guard' '52 reviewed here ; the slimmer-necked '58, also in ash; and the rosewood 'board '64 that's generally alder-bodied, but employing ash for the White Blonde colour option.
