Welcome to Guitar Niche’s Six Part Authentic Guitar Setup Video Series: How To Setup A Classic Fender Telecaster.

Introduction and Assessment

Ever have Tele troubles? Or even just guitar troubles?…

No guitar is immune to climate changes, accidental falls, misuse and neglect. Even pro level instruments benefit from a good setup before they live in the hands of their owners.

This is why the Authentic Guitar Setup Video Series exists.

That, and to share some of the nuggets and interesting history I’ve picked up over many years of working with guitars.

What’s covered in the video:

  • Assessment
  • Things to watch out for with Telecaster setups
  • A little background on how the Telecaster was inspired

Tele Setup Video Tutorial Part 1

I’ve had the very good fortune of working on a good number of these ’52 Reissues and they never fail to wind up as real charmers. Bullet proof workhorses you can count gig after gig, night after night.

After the launch of the Esquire in 1950 and it’s siblings, Clarence Leo Fender finally had a “Spanish” guitar in form and name that set the bar very high for future iterations. It had also caught the attention of Gretsch, Gibson and others.

Telecaster History

With it’s entrance into the market in the summer of 1951, this original and iconic instrument maintained it’s Bakelite pickguard, serviceable bolt-on neck and signature tone cut wiring through 1952.

In this first segment of our six part series, I do an assessment of a mint Fender ’52 Reissue Telecaster and point out some of the intricacies involved in setting up one of these fine instruments.
