Model Overview:

Introduced as the first mass production solid body guitar in the early 1950's, the Fender Telecaster has a place in the history of music that few other guitars can claim to share. The American Pro Telecaster is the latest incarnation of this iconic instrument and embodies the same elements of tone, playability and innovation as those early Telecaster models, making them still the go to guitar for working musicians that hold simplicity and versatility over everything else. The American Pro Telecaster features the same classic tone and looks as its predecessors, while new features provide a more modern playing experience.

The body is loaded with two Tim Shaw designed V-Mod pickups, designed to give a slightly higher output tone whilst retaining all the clarity and classic twang synonymous with older Telecasters. The Maple neck and fingerboard sports a bone nut and narrow tall frets, along with the new 'Deep C' neck profile, with more substantial shoulders than a traditional 'C' neck profile, providing a more natural and comfortable playing experience for all kinds of playing.

The American Pro Telecaster also includes a number of redesigned features with the aim of improving playability and stability for modern guitarist. The new bridge sports 3 compensated brass barrel saddles for more precise intonation and vintage style tone and resonance. The American Pro Telecaster also features Fenders new Treble Bleed circuitry, designed to preserve your guitars high end as you roll the volume off. All American Pro series guitars are available in a range of vintage inspired and more modern finishes, and also include an Elite molded Fender hard case.
