This Fender Deluxe Tele Thinline in Candy Apple Red is a wonderful guitar that is light in weight but heavy in tone. Classic Fender features like an Alder Body, Maple Neck, and Vintage Noiseless Single Coil Pickups provide you with an authentic feel and tone,
The first thing you will notice is how light this guitar is. No shoulder or back fatigue from hours of standing with this guitar around your neck. The semi-hollow Alder Body gives you a slightly warmer tone than your typical Tele. It adds some low-end to the mix, which is a great compliment to the Tele.
The Vintage Noiseless™ Single-Coil Telecaster® pickups have that classic tone with annoying no hum or noise. The bridge pickup has a warmer twang than your typical Tele. Great for rock and blues along with country, though the added bass doesn't allow it to cut with the same sharpness a solid Tele generates. The neck pickup has an appropriately scooped mid-range with a smooth high end. A 4-way pickup selector allows for Series or Parallel functionality which allows for a high output humbucker type of tone.
The C shape neck, carved from Maple, is fast and easy to play. The satinized finished on the back of the neck allows your hand to glide up and down the neck with ease. Never sticky or tacky, this type of finish is now preferred over the Full Gloss Finish that dominated for decades. The 12" fingerboard radius and 22 narrow-tall frets make bending and fast licks a breeze to play. A set of locking tuners comes stock and makes fast work of string changes. 25.5" Scale Length keeps the strings feeling taut and sounding snappy.
This Fender® Deluxe Telecaster® Thinline in Candy Apple Red is a steal at this price. Fender keeps building guitars for player's.
