The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster electric guitar features the same classic profile and exquisite detail that you'd expect from the ever popular model, but comes packing some impressive appointments that offer much greater tonal versatility and power.
The body has been shaped to the instantly recognisable single-cutaway Tele' profile. Crafted from select alder, the body of the Fender American Deluxe Telecaster looks absolutely gorgeous with its beautiful grain visible beneath a three-colour sunburst finish, which is protected by a slender yet resilient layer of urethane. This is offset nicely by a top binding and a 3-ply mint green pickguard, while the back of the body utilises a belly cut, allowing you to hold the guitar closer to you comfortably. Alder gives the Telecaster a sweetly balanced timbre, setting the foundation for exceptional tonal versatility.
Fitted to the body using a 4-bolt construction with micro tilt, is a maple neck that sports an ever so comfortable modern “C” profile. Married to the neck is a maple fingerboard, which is shaped crafted with a 9.5" radius to enable smoother string bends. Equipped with 22 medium-jumbo frets that are adorned with dot position inlays, the maple/maple combination is a joy to navigate, providing a highly enjoyable playing experience. The neck heel has also been bevelled, which, along with the Telecaster’s cutaway, gives you unrestricted access to even the highest frets. The headstock is home to the Fender American Deluxe Telecaster’s staggered locking tuners, which ensure stable tuning throughout, even when bending behind the synthetic bone nut.
The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar is equipped with a pair of N3 Noiseless pickups, which are designed to give you improved snappy, bell-like Tele' tone without the hum. Control comes in the form of a three-way pickup selector switch that allows each pickup to be selected individually, or combine both pickups for a fuller tone. There is a master volume pot, as well as a master tone pot with no-load capabilities that enables you to dial back the highs without introducing unwanted low-end to the signal for a tighter-sounding output.
In addition to the standard control arrangement, there is an S-1 switch to extend your tonal capabilities even further. For example, with the three-way pickup selector set to the middle position and the S-1 switch activated, both pickups are put into series - rather than the usual parallel wiring - to deliver a fatter, rounder tone, that is similar in tone to a humbucker, whilst retaining single-coil top end.
The body has been fitted with a 6-saddle American Tele bridge with chromed brass saddles, which makes control over intonation much easier to adjust and maintain. The American Deluxe Tele's comes with a polishing cloth to keep it in pristine condition, as well as a cable, strap and straplocks to enable you to get on with playing as soon as it arrives. If that wasn't enough, Fender has even included a hardshell case to keep your new pride and joy safe from harm.
If you're looking for an unapologetically cool electric guitar that has bags of energy and is remarkably versatile, then the Fender American Deluxe Telecaster electric guitar is the one for you.
