The Fender MIJ Limited Edition Mahogany Offset Telecaster Electric Guitar is inspired by the Japanese Telemaster "ACE" and combines the sleek style of the Jazzmaster with the playability of the Telecaster. Whether you're performing elegant country or creating raucous garage punk inspired noise rock, the Limited-Edition Mahogany Offset Tele' can do it all and do it in style. Each model is supplied with a gig bag to get your out and gigging immediately.
Cool Jazzmaster body
The Fender Offset Telecaster is shaped to the Jazzmaster body shape, which was originally designed to accommodate both seated and standing playing positions for ensemble players back in the day. The slender body depth pairs beautifully with subtle bevelled edges to establish a figure-hugging feel that is the stuff of dreams - not only that, but it looks pretty cool too.
The Fender Japan team have employed mahogany as the tonewood of choice rather than a lighter wood, which creates a rich midrange tonal foundation with generous warmth infused with every note. A protective coating of polyester protects against unwanted rubbing and abrasions whilst allowing the wood to breathe and resonate fully. Further protection is offered by the 3-ply black pickguard around the upper and lower bout beneath the strings and around the neck pickup.
Sturdy Tele' neck
Joined to the body via four-bolt construction is a durable mahogany neck, which is shaped to a classic Tele' "U" shape profile. As one would expect from a Tele' neck, it sits comfortably in the hand and allows you to race along at lightning speeds whilst providing a reassuringly substantial feel. The neck has also been treated to a polyester finish, which prevents unwanted stickiness or tackiness from impeding your movement during performances. Paired with the neck is a luxurious rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 21 medium frets that are adorned with ivory dot position inlays to guide your way in style. The flatter 10-inch radius provides the ideal platform for your fingers to fret chords on, lay down legato licks or chops through some frenetic riffs.
Classic Tele' setup
The MIJ Mahogany Offset Tele' is equipped with a pair of pickups that set the standard for the guitar's versatile tonal palette. Fitted in the neck position is a soapbar, which translates each note with impressive articulation and doesn't skimp on delivering the revered Tele' twang. The vintage-style single-coil Tele' pickup enables you pluck some sweet sounds from this beauty with unbelievable ease, lending an energetic edge to any musical style you wish to tackle. From laid back blues to in your face hardcore, you can segue between anything and everything with ease. The 3-position toggle switch allows you to rapidly adjust your tonal focus, whilst the volume and tone arrangement makes fine tuning your tone a breeze.
The body is fitted with a 3-saddle strings-thru-body Tele bridge, which anchors each string securely to optimise intonation and sustain throughout each and every performance. The headstock is home to Fender vintage-style tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout the most demanding of performances. The nickel hardware finish complements the cool natural mahogany paintwork beautifully, tying the overall aesthetic together to produce an undeniably stylish instrument.
