The Fender Telecaster is the original workhorse guitar, built for functionality, playability and reliability it has been a firm favourite for over 50 years. The Fender American Elite Telecaster is a modern powerhouse. Carrying all the traditional traits of a Telecaster, the American Elite brings a few new features to the table.
The Alder body is typically comfortable, as all Telecasters are, and with a crisp Aged Cherry Burst finish it looks real slick. The Maple neck features a new Compound Modern C to D, 9.5”-14” profile, designed for speed and comfort; it's equally at home playing big chords or intricate lead work. 22 Medium Jumbo frets, a sweet Rosewood board and a 25.5" scale length make the Telecaster feel familiar and supremely comfortable.
The defining feature comes in the form of the new 4th Generation Noiseless single coil pickups, super dynamic and offering a multi-dimensional tone, these pups are exclusive to the American Elite series. Authentic vintage style Fender tone and flawless noise-free performance make this the ultimate Telecaster! With an S-1 switch you can switch between series and parallel wiring for even greater tonal variations.
Complete with an Elite Hardcase, the Fender American Elite range is the standard for gigging musicians, with amazing quality and playability they are ready to hit the stage or studio at any time.
