New Fender Blacktop Series Baritone Tele
Fender’s “Blacktop” series of guitars is relatively new — but the line is already expanding. Today Fender introduces 3 new Blacktop Series guitars, including the Blacktop Baritone Telecaster. Along with the Baritone Tele, Fender is introducing a Blacktop Stratocaster HSH and a Blacktop Jaguar 90. These guitars are true to the “blacktop” credo of modern tones from humbucking pickups and more in your face hardware choices for “modern” (read: Heavy) players.
A true baritone Telecaster with a 27” scale, low B-to-B tuning, and a versatile triple-pickup configuration—including a humbucking bridge pickup—that goes from tic-tac to twang. The Blacktop Baritone Tele features an alder body, maple neck, 9.5”-radius rosewood fretboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and aged white position markers, single-coil Telecaster neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup, five-way pickup switching, three-ply pickguard (black-white-black), skirted black amp knobs (volume and tone) and black switch tip, Blacktop Telecaster bridge and chrome hardware.
Finish options include Classic Copper, Ghost Silver and Three-color Sunburst. The Blacktop Baritone Telecaster has a MSRP of $739.99
