the Road‌

Driving 450 miles to play for 45 minutes is a fair trade. Clean clothes and soft beds are for people who work 8 to 5. Nothing we own is shiny or new. Fans are earned one by one. The journey is the destination. The road is our home.

It’s in our blood.

The older and more battered electric guitars and basses get, the cooler they look and the more comfortable they feel. Fender Road Worn Vintage Series guitars and basses come with a head start on history, bringing players killer aged designs perfectly paired with modern quality and playability. Based on classic Fender instruments of the 1950s and ’60s, they reflect the mystic muse of the road; inspired by musicians everywhere who yearn to take their music and just drive ...


Few things in this world have gotten cooler with age than the Stratocaster® guitar. Born in the ’50s and coming of age in the ’60s, they became even better after years of use (and abuse) on the road — morphing over time to look appealingly battered and feel even better than when they were brand-new.

‘50s Black (ALSO AVAILABLE IN TWO-COLOR SUNBURst)

Fender’s maple-fretboard Road Worn ’50s Stratocaster and rosewood-fretboard Road Worn ’60s Stratocaster deliver that aged look and feel — built to look, sound and feel like they have more than just a few miles on them, designed with 1950s and 1960s specs, respectively, including nitrocellulose lacquer finishes, and supercharged with Tex-Mex™ pickups and 6105 frets.


‘60s three-color sunburst (ALSO AVAILABLE IN Olympic white)


‘50s BLONDE


‘50s two-color sunburst

The first Fender workhorse; the original road warrior guitar. Fender’s long road begins with the Telecaster, a guitar that amazingly looked even cooler and handled even better the more players heaped wear and tear on it — great when brandnew but positively phenomenal with a few thousand miles on it. Fender’s maple-fretboard Road Worn ’50s Telecaster delivers that aged look and feel — built to look, sound and feel like it has survived half a century, designed with 1950s specs, including a nitrocellulose-lacquer finish, and supercharged with Tex-Mex™ pickups and 6105 frets.


The Precision BASS® was the original — born in the ’50s and producing the sound of bass. The Jazz Bass® was introduced in 1960 as a veritable racecar of an instrument. Out on the road, players put as many punishing miles on both basses as they did on their tour buses. But the more the seemingly indestructible Precision Bass and Jazz Bass were used (and abused), the more comfortable they felt, the cooler looking they became and the better they sounded.

‘60s JAZZ BASS® (Fiesta red)

Fender’s Road Worn ’50s Precision Bass guitar and Road Worn ’60s Jazz Bass guitar deliver that aged look and feel — designed with 1950s and 1960s specs, respectively, including nitrocelluloselacquer finishes, and built to look, sound and feel like they have more than just a few miles on them.
