The newest addition to the Fender family, the American Elite series mixes classic style with modern technology. The American Elite Telecaster is the original solid body electric guitar, with modern touches such as a refined ergonomic rear contour, black chrome headstock logo and large pearloid fret markers. Locking tuners, compound radius fingerboard and a newly designed heel block round off the features that set this unique high performance instrument apart from the pack. Available only in this series, the Elite Tele also features the new 4th generation noiseless pickups, combining authentic, vintage-style sound with effectively noise-free performance. These are the pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, generating sparkling cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power.
