The Fender American Special Telecaster electric guitar in Olympic White delivers renowned U.S.-made Fender build quality at a price that more guitarists can take advantage of.
The body is built using a tonewood that has been favoured by Fender for decades, ever reliable and tonally balanced alder. The smooth timbre of alder ensures lows are delivered with clout, a healthy midrange punch cuts through with bags of energy, and highs are snappy without becoming harsh. The instantly recognisable single-cutaway Tele' body profile sits delightfully against you as you play, whether you prefer to wear it high or sling it low. The body is finished in a striking Olympic White finish, which has been treated to a protective layer of gloss urethane to preserve the finish for as long as possible.
The neck is crafted using maple, a supple and supportive wood that is shaped to the comfortable modern "C" profile. The back of the neck has been given a satin urethane finish, which prevents the neck from becoming tacky or sticky over time, upholding the 'gliding' feel perfectly. Married to the neck is a 22-jumbo fret maple fingerboard, with a 9.5" radius that is easy to get to grips with.
The American Special Tele' is kitted out with a pair of Texas Special single-coil Tele' pickups in the neck and bridge position respectively. Control comes in the form of a Master Volume pot, and a Master Tone pot with Greasebucket Circuit that enables you to rolls back highs without adding bass, great for maintaining a smooth output at high volume levels. Switching between the pickups is easy thanks to the 3-position pickup selector switch.
Fitted to the body is a vintage-style three-brass-saddle strings-through-body Telecaster bridge that creates a seamless connection between the strings and body. This ensures that intonation is maintained with precision, and the Fender standard cast/sealed tuning machines uphold tuning integrity no matter how hard you rock out.
The Fender American Special Telecaster electric guitar combines rugged construction, excellent playability, and classic tones, everything you'd expect from an American made guitar, without the hefty price tag.
