The new Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster signature guitar has been announced and it’s absolutely stunning! We take a closer look at the award-winning country singer’s new workhorse!
Brad Paisley is by far one of the most famous names in Country Music, whose song writing talents have earned him an array of awards, including three GRAMMYs, two American Music Awards, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and 14 Country Music Association Awards (including Entertainer of the Year), among many others.
To say the man is a legend, is probably an understatement as his guitar playing, song writing prowess and personality have captured the hearts of country music fans and guitar aficionados across the globe. Brad paisley has done all this with his trusty Fender Telecaster in hand, so it was only a matter of time before he collaborated with Fender to create his very own signature telecaster guitar.
The aptly titled Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster® signature guitar is an extremely limited edition Telecaster that features plenty of that Brad Paisley flair coupled with amazing tonewoods, hard working Fender Custom Shop pickups and a signature custom clear Paisley scratch plate with custom silver sparkle road worn finish.
Custom road worn finish, signature appointments
This eye-catching Fender Brad Paisley Telecaster features a number of signature appointments that make this guitar a beauty to behold. The silver sparkle Road Worn lacquer finish has been crafted to give the guitar a played-in feel and that of a well-used Telecaster that has spent many years on the touring trail.
In addition, the Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster® signature, which is based on a 1963 Tele also includes a custom clear pick guard with black and silver paisleys as well as a cowboy hat insignia on the headstock.
The maple neck with enhanced “V” shape is completely comfortable to play and also features an Oiled Road Worn® finish to add to the played-in aesthetic, whilst being easier and less sticky to play.
Fender Custom Shop pickups, superior tonewoods and playability
The Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster® signature guitar has been designed to provide players with that typical Telecaster reliability but with added power. The pickup configuration has been personally approved (and road tested) by the man himself, and includes a custom-wound ’64 Tele® bridge pickup as well as a Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele® neck pickup for that classic tone. This gives you all the right amount of twang with added warmth, making it a versatile guitar for fans of all genres.
There has been a huge focus on the tonewoods and overall playability of the guitar. The “Enhanced V” Maple neck has been designed for comfort and fills the hand towards the nut for easier chords. The neck then flattens out towards the upper registers to make soloing easier, especially when coupled with the modern 9.5” radius fingerboard with medium jumbo frets. This is just another great signature appointment that has been designed to incorporate Paisley’s fleet-fingered style.
To ring out those big chords and notes, the Fender Brad Paisley Telecaster has been purposefully crafted from a paulownia core with a spruce top and back. This gives the guitar a solid, yet lightweight foundation that provides an acoustic-like resonance rarely seen in guitars.
Overall, the Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster® signature guitar provides players with a total workhorse of a guitar ready to hit the road – and hit it hard! Beautiful tonewoods, perfect playability and Fender Custom Shop Pickups all wrapped up in a stunning, budget friendly guitar that is as unique as the superstar that is Brad Paisley – what more could you ask for?
