Fender has unveiled its new Vintera series of electric guitars.

Featuring 17 instruments, the vintage-inspired Vintera series includes new Stratocaster, Telecaster, Jaguar, Mustang and Jazzmaster models.

The Vintera series guitars feature specs from decades past, like period-correct neck shapes, new pickups with decade-specific tones and vintage colors, including Mocha, Fiesta Red, Seafoam Green, Inca Silver, Burgundy Mist and Ice Blue Metallic. In addition, for almost every decade correct model, there’s also a counterpart “modded” version that offers fresh features not available at the time the model was first released.

The guitars in the Vintera series replace the company's Mexican-made Classic series. You can check out each model in more detail below.
