Blonde Telecaster

What is the best purchase you can make if you want a blonde telecaster? If you are looking at value vs money spent, I think there is an easy answer - the Squier Classic Vibe Telecaster '50s. It is one of the best budget guitars you can buy. Naturally, there are better Telecasters if you go up in price. Let's take a closer look at the Blonde Telecasters that Fender currently sells.

The Squier CLASSIC VIBE Telecaster Vintage Blonde! The reason I call it the "best" is because it is probably the best blonde Tele you currently can get for your dollars.

The Classic Vibe 50's has a body made out of pine, and you can see the wood grains through the lacquer. It doesn't look like a butterscotch blonde, since it's not as yellow, but it looks very nice indeed.

The Squire Classic Vibe 50's isn't the cheapest one either. That award might go to the Squier Affinity Telecaster Butterscotch Blonde, a decent guitar as well, but not quite as good as the Classic Vibe 50s, neither in sound or build quality.

If you are looking for a more high end blonde Telecaster, the Fender Vintage Hot Rod 52 Telecaster Butterscotch Blondeis a very nice guitar.

A real high end Tele is the Fender Custom Shop Limited Snake Head Telecaster Electric Guitar White Blonde- this as good as it gets, and you pay a premium as a result.

This is a classic blonde telecaster which is very popular - Fender American Vintage 52 Telecaster Electric Guitar Butterscotch Blonde- the classic Fender Vintage Tele.

Finally, for a middle of the road tele (price-wise) and with noiseless pickups, the Fender Standard Telecaster FSR Ash Electric Guitar With Vintage Noiseless Pickups Butterscotch Blonde is a great choice. This guitar gives you a lot of bang for the buck, and the noiseless pickups are great for stage use, since they eliminate that single coil hum that often shows up at a gig.

If you want a killer aged look, feel and mojo without breaking the bank, then the Fender Road Worn 50S Telecaster Electric Guitar 2 Tone Sunburst is the Tele for you.

The Fender Classic Player Baja Telecaster Blonde is slightly more than the FSR As Tele, and it is one of the most popular Fender Blonde Telecasters today. Very nice guitar indeed. 

There you have it - some options for you if you are looking for a blonde Fender Tele. Let me know if I missed any obvious ones. My advice would be to get either the Squier CLASSIC VIBE Telecaster Vintage Blonde since it is so affordable. If you want to go up a step, I would personally pick the Fender Classic Player Baja Telecaster Blonde. It's a very nice instrument indeed.
