The Fender Cabronita Telecaster offers ‘La Cabronita’ style at a more affordable price
The Fender Cabronita Telecaster is likely to be one of the year’s most desirable Fender models. Last year saw the launch of a limited edition Cabronita Telecaster as part of the ‘Telebration’ anniversary series of guitars. This was a huge hit, winning a whole host of accolades, and a place at the top of many guitarists’ ‘most wanted’ lists. As desirable as it was, though, the price put it out of the reach of many.
Now, you can have a Cabronita of your very own in the form of this ‘made in Mexico’ model, and at a much more attainable price…
Fidelitron Humbucker Pickups
The Fender Cabronita Telecaster is a great mix of classic Tele features, and new, more aggressive twists. The body is a solid Alder type, with the familiar, Tele shape. A maple neck, with a modern ‘c’ profile adds to the bright tone.
A cursory glance reveals that the Cabronita Telecaster is far from typical in the pickup department, however. It swaps the two Tele single coils for two very Gretsch-like humbuckers, called ‘Fidelitons’. Looking very much like the famous TV Jones Filtertron pickups, these are described by Fender as producing tone that is ‘Fiery’. We like the sound of that… The pickups themselves are wired via a 3-way blade selector switch.
The bridge is another twist on the standard Tele formula, providing a string-through-body design with six adjustable, cast saddles. A one-ply scratch-plate adds a further aesthetic touch to add to its fiery credentials.
Here are the Fender Cabronita Telecaster ’s key features:
