The Fender Deluxe Nashville Telecaster in Fiesta Red is a great value and the perfect guitar for someone who can't settle on a Strat or a Tele! With the Nashville, you get the best Bridge and Neck Position tones with Tele pickups but that middle Strat pickup allows this guitar to quack like a Strat!
If you like the best of both worlds… the Nashville Tele is for you! Having that Tele bridge pickup mounted in a metal bridge gives you one heck of a magnetic sweet spot, which certainly contributes to that classic Tele tone. The low output Neck Pickup help brings some warmth to the palette but it's not until you throw in a 3rd middle pickup until you start to be able to get those classic out-of-phase tones often associated with the Strat. If you can't decide if a Strat or Tele is for you, the Nashville is a perfect choice. And, on top of it all… The Deluxe Nashville Telecaster just got revamped with a boatload of killer features!
The neck is made from Maple and is carved into a Modern C Profile. A separate Maple fingerboard is installed and carries a 12" fingerboard radius. 22 Narrow Tall Frets give you a glassy surface to play with. 1.650" Nut Width puts the strings right under your fingers and 25.5" scale length keeps the strings feeling taut and snappy.
