The Fender American Special Telecaster puts all the features that guitarists want into an affordable package , including a maple neck, Texas special pickups, vintage string-through-body telecaster bridge with three brass saddles, and much more.
Classic Tele’ Body
As customary for Fender, the American Special Telecaster is shaped to the timeless single-cutaway design. The solid alder body provides a delightfully balanced timbre that has a natural crispness and fantastic articulation. Whether you’re reaching down to a low midrange charge, or hitting the highs, alder responds perfectly every time.
Responsive Maple Neck
Into the Alder body sits the 22.5” scale length maple neck. The sturdy feel of the neck is matched by an effortless playability, and thanks to the single-cutaway profile, it is incredibly easy to access the highest reaches of the neck. Paired with the maple is a luxurious maple fingerboard, which is home to 22 jumbo frets that are adorned with black dot position inlays to guide your way in style. At the top of the neck you’ll find the headstock, which bears standard cast tuners that are finished in chrome. The tuning machines carry out their task dutifully, and no matter how hard you rock out, they will keep each and every string securely fixed in tune. Beside the tuning machines you’ll find the classic Fender Telecaster logo displayed proudly in black.
Texas Special Tele’ Pickups
The American Special is equipped with a pair of Texas Special Tele single-coil pickups, one in the neck position and the other in the bridge, giving the telecaster its acclaimed tone. Each pickup can all be controlled using the master volume and master tone controls. Built into this particular Tele’ is Fender’s Master Greasebucket tone circuitry, this allows treble to be rolled off without adding bass for a 'less muddy' tone. The stunning articulation of the alder and maple shines through with immense power.
The Fender American Special Telecaster is a timeless classic that will always be classed as one of the guitars that broke ground and set trends in electric guitar manufacturing. This superb example continues that legacy and pushes the boundaries even further, grab one and find out for yourself what all the fuss it about.
