The Fender 2016 Deluxe Nashville Telecaster Maple Fingerboard Guitar marries vintage style with modern appointments to perfection. Long associated with country music, the Nashville Tele' draws inspiration from the home of country - Nashville, Tennessee -, but offers versatility associated with today's styles with a unique (for a Tele) three single-coil pickup design.
Classic Tele' Style
Ever since its introduction back in the 1950s, the Telecaster has adhered to its no nonsense single-cutaway design without fail. The simplistic modular design suits country's sonic aesthetic perfectly, with alder providing a solid tonal foundation that delivers smooth mids and sweet high-end snap with aplomb. The solid feel afforded by the body shape is complemented by the addition of a modern six-saddle string-through-body bridge with block saddles, which aids in maintaining consistent intonation and increased sustain.
Sturdy Maple Neck
Fitted to the body is sublime maple neck, which features a contoured neck heel and a 4-bolt asymmetrical neck plate to create a closer feel against your body. As well as providing enhanced playing comfort, it combines perfectly with the single cutaway body profile to ensure the entire neck is within easy reach. Paired with the neck is a smooth maple fingerboard with 22 narrow-tall frets. The flatter design of the 12-inch radius makes the fingerboard easier to run your fingers across, as well as executing deep string bends without note cut-off. The headstock is home to locking short-post tuning machines that provide increased break angle at the nut for buzz-free playing, and greater tuning stability.
Unique Tele' Pickup Layout
To offer the Fender 2016 Deluxe Nashville Telecaster Maple Fingerboard Guitar improved versatility, two noise-free, Vintage Noiseless Tele' pickups have been fitted in the neck and bridge positions, with a single-coil Strat pickup in the middle position. The flat response of the alder is matched with beefed up tones, which also draw out the twang and brightness produced by the neck and fingerboard partnership.
Flexible five-way Strat-o-Tone pickup switching unlocks various pickup combinations, providing the perfect sound for any performance. Knurled flat top controls knobs make it easy to carry out changes on the fly. Whether you're practising at home, jamming with friends, or hitting the stage or studio, the tonal offerings gifted by the Nashville Tele' are faithfully consistent throughout.
