The Fender American Elite Telecaster Thinline Electric Guitar in Champagne pushes the capabilities of the hallowed semi-hollow model further than ever before. With exceptional tonal flexibility at your fingertips, as well as the Tele' Thinline's customary comfortability, the American Elite model boasts bleeding-edge technologies that make it the perfect model for players who won't settle for anything less than the best.
Classic Thinline body
The Thinline body profile takes that of a standard Telecaster, and increases playing comfort by adopting a lighter, semi-hollow design. Built using ash, the body resonates freely to generate an unabashed energy infused with an enviable depth and warmth. The sophisticated champagne finish is enhanced by the addition of a stylish F-hole in the top. Protection is afforded to the paint job by a slender yet resilient coating of gloss polyurethane to allow the guitar to age gracefully.
Fast and free-playing feel
Connected to the body via a steadfast 4-bolt asymmetrical joint is a solid and durable maple neck. The neck has been shaped to a compound back with modern "C" to "D" profile for a consistent feel along its entire length. A coating of satin urethane prevents unwanted tackiness from impeding your fretting hand for lightning fast movement. The American Elite series neck heel has been reshaped to maximise playing comfort.
Paired with the neck is a maple fingerboard, which plays host to 22 medium-jumbo frets that are decorated with large black pearloid dot inlays to guide your way. A heel-mounted spoke wheel is fitted where the fingerboard meets the body for adjusting the neck relief with ease.
The Fender American Elite Telecaster Thinline is equipped with a pair of 4th Generation Noiseless pickups fitted in the neck and bridge positions. These single-coils boast an impressive output with exquisite cleans, crisp highs, and thunderous overdriven chunk - all without unwanted noise from scuppering your chances of reaching tonal nirvana.
The American Elite Tele Thinline has a 3-way toggle control switch allowing you to change from one pickup to the other or combine the two. The Master Volume has an S-1 switch, which activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups to expand your tonal universe even further.
The body is home to a unique suspension bridge, which uses a screwless mount to maximise vibration transfer to capture your playing with peerless transparency whilst bolstering sustain. The headstock is fitted with deluxe cast/sealed locking tuners, all with short posts, to uphold tuning integrity dutifully.
