When Fender replaced the made-in-Mexico Classic Series with the Vintera electric guitar line-up in June last year, it brought with it a host of new finishes and upgraded specs, but one thing was missing: those oh-so-hotly debated relic'd Road Worn finishes.

At the time, the California guitar giant hinted they would return, and for 2020, it has delivered, with four new models boasting distressed aesthetics.

The Vintera Road Worn series is now available, and includes the ’50s Stratocaster, ’50s Telecaster, ’60s Stratocaster and ’70s Telecaster Deluxe.

Each guitar clocks in at $1,099, and comes in two hand-distressed finishes. Otherwise, the spec remains the same as the original, non-relic’d Vintera models.

For more details on each model - including those all-important colors - read on...
