The Fender 2018 Limited Edition Troublemaker Tele Electric Guitar is a guitar with swagger, an unashamed model that deserves its place in the spotlight. If you're the kind of player that likes to take the moment by the scruff of the neck, then this is the model for you. Kick up a fuss and let loose with the awesome limited-edition Troublemaker Tele'.
Awesome Tele' body
The Troublemaker Tele' features the same instantly recognisable body shape that has enraptured so many guitarists for decades. However, the Troublemaker is a cut above the rest. Built using mahogany, this Tele' produces a warm midrange tonal foundation with a sophisticated character. The bound design is combined with a maple top, which cuts through with a crisp high-end clarity. The beautifully subtle paint work is protected by a coating of gloss nitrocellulose lacquer, which allows it to age gracefully. The custom Cabronita pickguard accentuates the stylish finish whilst protecting against unwanted blemishes or scrapes.
Lightning fast neck
Fitted to the body is a sturdy mahogany neck, which is shaped to the modern "deep C" American Professional Tele' neck to encourage speed and precision. The 25.5-inch scale length upholds consistent tension for a responsive feel throughout. The satin nitrocellulose lacquer finish minimises stickiness or tackiness so that the neck plays fast and free every time.
Paired with the neck is a rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 narrow tall frets that are perfect for executing seamless string bends. The 9.5-inch fingerboard radius sits nicely in the hand, allowing you to fret chords, shift position, and move around with ease. Pearloid dot position inlays guide your way in fine fashion.
The Troublemaker Tele's rebellious nature comes from a pair of belligerent Shawbucker 2T and 1T humbuckers in the bridge and neck positions respectively. Each pickup is specially voiced for their position, maximising the Tele's awesome tonal potential. Control over the pickups comes in the form of a three-position toggle switch, as well as independent volume and tone controls for each pickup.
The Troublemaker Tele' is home to a 6-saddle vintage-style adjusto-matic bridge with anchored tailpiece, a partnership that secures each string to optimise intonation and sustain throughout the most demanding of performances. The headstock is home to deluxe staggered cast/sealed tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with precision.
Each model is supplied with an elite moulded case, and strung with Fender USA strings to get you off to a flying start. The 2018 Limited Edition Jazz Tele Electric Guitar won't be around for long, so act quickly to avoid disappointment.
