Here is the latest version of the highly versatile Fender Nashville Tele, earning its name the "Nashville Tele" because it has a middle pickup like a Strat for total tonal versatility. If you've ever been down to Broadway in Nashville and experienced live music down that famous road, you would definitely have seen a guitar player brandishing an axe with this kind of pickup spec, as it allows you to switch between honky Strat tones and punchy Tele twang.
Two noise-free and highly articulate Vintage Noiseless Tele pickups sit in the neck and middle positions, flanking the Vintage Noiseless Strat pickup in the middle, creating an unbeatable trio. These pickups crank out rich, premier tone with the balanced string response, definition and twang you've come to expect from a genuine Fender instrument.
Flexible five-way Strat-o-Tone pickup switching unlocks various pickup combinations, providing the perfect sound for any performance. Enjoy increased sustain and slightly thicker tone that complements the famous Tele twang, thanks to the modern six-saddle string-through-body bridge with block saddles.
A contoured neck heel and 4-bolt asymmetrical neck plate makes it easy to comfortably reach the upper registers of the neck. The flatter 12"-radius fingerboard makes it easy to play fast leads and perform deep bends without fretting out. Locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the nut for buzz-free playing and enhanced tuning stability, along with quicker string changes.
Classic aesthetic touches include nickel/chrome hardware and a three-ply B/W/B or mint green pickguard, along with knurled flat-top control knobs and a black switch tip. A truly versatile performer with flexible sound, player-oriented features and original aesthetics, the Deluxe Nashville Tele merges the best of yesterday and today into a single, affordable design.
