The Fender Magnificent 7 Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster proves to be as timeless as the rest but with the inclusion of some great new appointments. Hailing from the Magnificent 7 series, this limited edition model as you may guess is a US-built guitar which encompasses all the greatest aspects of a classic Telecaster, but this 2016 guitar is sure to offer more elegance in both its sound and appearance. Keeping the traditional Telecaster body shape, this Magnificent 7 model comes in a sweet, Cognac Burst finish.
Ever since the 50s, ash has been a tonewood of choice when it comes to constructing the body of a Fender Telecaster. The 2016 Fender Magnificent 7 Tele follows this tradition and is built using ash to maintain that legendary tone, while it also takes on that Cognac Burst finish extremely well. The Magnificent 7 Telecaster holds onto that famous, curved body shape with the single cutaway design and back contour, taking a classic guitar into 2016, continuing to appeal to new and upcoming guitarists.
The ash body is given a gloss polyurethane layer over the Cognac Burst colouring, safeguarding the finish of the guitar for years to come.
FIGURED MAPLE NECK
The Magnificent 7 Limited Edition American Telecaster is equipped with a beautifully figured maple neck which also has a gloss nitrocellulose lacquer finish to ensure a smooth playing feel. The neck is shaped to a modern “C” profile which fits well in your hand.
Married to the figured maple neck is a rosewood fingerboard endowed with 22 medium jumbo frets and decorated with pearloid dot inlays to guide you along with confidence. The aforementioned single cutaway in the Telecaster body enables you to access the higher notes on the upper frets with minimal effort and maximum comfort.
CUSTOM SHOP ELECTRONICS
The Fender Magnificent 7 Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster is fitted with Custom Shop pickups; a Custom Shop “Twisted” Single-Coil Tele sits at the neck position, while a Custom Shop Vintage-Style Single-Coil Tele sits at the bridge. The pairing of these Custom Shop pickups produces a range of warm, vintage tones combined with sleek, bright tones, all of which ring out with complete clarity.
The Magnificent 7 Telecaster is equipped with knurled flat-top controls for Master Volume and Master No-Load Tone, accompanied by a 3-position pickup switch blade, allowing you to switch between the pickups with no fuss.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
Fender have fitted the guitar with a 6-saddle American Standard Strings-Through-Body Tele bridge with bent steel saddles and a stamped brass plate, offering great sustain and resonance. Standard cast / sealed tuners are secured to the headstock for you to retune your guitar strings with little effort and complete accuracy. A “Special Edition” ingot is put at the rear of the headstock, giving this guitar an extra special feel.
The Magnificent 7 Telecaster has a 3-ply Black / White / Black pickguard to protect against scratches and damage to the stunning Cognac Burst finish of the body.
The Fender Magnificent 7 Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster lives up to its “magnificent” name, retaining all the classic features we know and love in a Telecaster while including some new appointments for 2016, ensuring that this guitar appeals to musicians new and old.
