This Fender® American Professional Telecaster in Natural has a natural voice that is bright and clear but well balanced with plenty of chime and sustain. Finished in a classic Butterscotch or Nocaster Blonde over an Ash body nails that 1950's vibe! An Ash Body and 3 brass saddles complete the 50's vibe perfectly!
Loaded with a set of Tim Shaw designed V-Mod single pickups that are voiced specifically for each position. In all three positions, the Tele is incredibly percussive and dynamic. The bridge pickup is hotter than a vintage pickup but retains that wonderful twang we want to hear from a Tele. The neck pickup is clear and defined when played through a clean amp. But it has a nicely flutey, slightly nasal quality in conjunction with overdrive.
The new modern "Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords. This Fender® American Professional Telecaster in Natural is perfect for the all-around player looking for a Tele with top-notch features and modern tone!
Fender keeps building guitars for player's. With their eye on offering tons of features for not a whole lot of money, you can easily find the right Fender for whatever your needs may be.
