Fender Vintera Series

Fender Vintera series

We live in a culture where people are obsessed with the fashion and lifestyle of yesteryear. From Hipsters raiding their grandparent’s clothing chest to Disney remaking all their old cartoons and musicians looking for an “authentic” tone, the drive for vintage is pervasive.

For musicians who want a vintage tone, there are two options. Either source and buy an actual vintage guitar. Of course, this is a costly and often time-consuming endeavour. The alternative is to buy a “modern vintage” like the Fender Vintera Series.

With classy-vintage colours, era-correct pickups, and features reminiscent of the 50s through to the 70s, it’s no wonder these guitars are fast becoming the go-to instrument for those who want something old school.
