According to the Fender website, these instruments were inspired by the “cult classic guitars” played by garage rockers of the 60s. Gold foil pickups tend to be lower-output, but can be surprisingly dynamic, responsive and harmonically rich. It’s priced at £1,219.
The Gold Foil Telecaster – which comes in White Blonde or Candy Apple Burst – has a mahogany body, a C-shaped maple neck, and an ebony fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets. You get a pair of Gold Foil mini-humbuckers on this one. Priced at £1,439.
As for the Gold Foil Jazzmaster – coming in Shoreline Gold or Candy Apple Burst – you’ll find three Gold Foil mini-humbuckers, plus a Bigsby B50 vibrato and other vintage appointments. Fender also opted for a Jaguar-style switch plate for the guitar. Sold at £1,299.
Finally, there’s the Gold Foil Jazz Bass – in Two Tone Sunburst or Sonic Blue – with a Gold Foil single-coil to provide “full, punchy tone”. You’ll also find ‘lollipop’ tuners and a comfortable C-shaped maple neck.
