Fender Noventa Telecaster, Pau Ferro Fingerboard, 2-Colour Sunburst
This Fender Noventa Telecaster is part of the Noventa series, which means classic Fender designs with great playability, a powerful sound (with Noventa single-coil pickups, and great looks.
This Telecaster has an Alder body, which delivers a balanced sound, and a classic 2-Colour Sunburst finish. For the neck, it has a comfortable ‘60’s ‘C’-shaped Maple neck with a 21-fret Pau Ferro fretboard, which is a durable wood while having the warmth of Rosewood. This model also features a 3-saddle custom “Cut-Off” vintage-style Tele Bridge with compensated brass saddles, which improve the tone and sustain, allowing more accurate intonation than straight saddles, and vintage-style tuning machines.
For pickups, it has a single Noventa single-coil pickup at the bridge to provide a classic twangy Tele tone and great mid-range bite. To complete the look is a unique ‘half’ black pickguard that fits in well with the finish, and nickel and chrome hardware.
Combining classic Fender style and dynamic single-coil pickups, the Noventa series delivers powerful tones, modern playability and dashing good looks.
The Noventa Telecaster is a stripped-down rock machine – featuring a lone Noventa single-coil, master volume and tone controls, stylish ‘half’ pickguard and ‘cut’ Tele bridge – its striking good looks are matched by the midrange bite and snarling highs of the Noventa pickup. But this is no one-trick-pony – a surprisingly versatile and dynamic range of tones are on tap with the adjustment of the volume and tone controls. A ‘60s ‘C’ neck with 21 medium jumbo frets and 9.5’ radius fingerboard delivers a smooth blend of modern and vintage playability that is distinctly Fender.

The latest of my collection and love affair with Leo's first and finest. The single p90 pup is versatile and has all the sounds that a sixties tribute act can use. The feel of the neck is perfect for me, as I don't particularly like the big "baseball bat" approach of some earlier models. Denis
