Shred like Julien Baker by bagging this Black Friday Fender deal.


Still reeling from Julien Baker‘s Jesus Christ Halloween costume? Or her impeccable Ariana Grande imitation? Us too. But we also really love her sick riffs.

So gear up like boygenius this Black Friday with one of these epic Fender guitar deals. Fender’s various iterations of the Telecaster – played by Julien and other top boys like Keith Richards, Bruce Springsteen and Graham Coxon – are on sale this Black Friday weekend. The humble Tele has been a solid bet for musicians for decades and is a great guitar whether you’re a beginner or a total pro.

This Black Friday, Fender is offering an epic sale on Telecasters, Stratocasters and more. Check out a couple of Julien-friendly picks below.


CLASSIC VIBE ’50S TELECASTER® – $343.99 (down from $429.99)

Buy the Classic Vibe ’50s Telecaster

What Fender says: “A celebration of the birth of the Tele® in the early 1950s, the Classic Vibe ’50s Telecaster creates incredible tone courtesy of the Fender-Designed alnico single-coil pickups. Player-friendly features include a slim, comfortable “C”-shaped neck profile with an easy-playing 9.5″-radius fingerboard and narrow-tall frets, as well as a vintage-style Telecaster bridge with barrel saddles and string-through-body design. This throwback Squier model also features 1950s-inspired headstock markings, rich-looking nickel-plated hardware and a slick vintage-tint gloss neck finish for an old-school vibe.”


WAS: $1199.99

NOW: $839.99

Buy the Vintera® ’60s Telecaster® Modified

This one is a real thing of beauty.

What Fender says: “The Vintera® ’60s Telecaster® Modified blends classic looks with a modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, hotter pickups and updated electronics – this guitar packs a surprising amount of power under the hood.

For modern Fender tone we recreated the pair of ’60s single-coil Telecaster pickups then kicked things up a bit by increasing the output. Twangy and articulate, they have the power you need for any style of music. The “60s C”-shaped neck has a 9.5″-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium-jumbo frets for modern playing feel. A vintage-style Tele® bridge with three brass saddles gives this Telecaster it’s characteristic twang, while 4-way switching gives you even more tonal variety. Series wiring makes this Tele sound fat, like a humbucking pickup, while the S-1™ switch puts the pickups out of phase with each other for a cool “strangled” tone. Other features include vintage-style tuning machines and strap buttons, chrome hardware and four-bolt neck plate. Includes deluxe gig bag.”
