Introducing the new standard of electric guitars, the amazing Fender American Professional Telecaster, here in the old school, classic Butterscotch Blonde with a Maple fingerboard. This guitar has defined the standard in electric guitar quality for many, many years and now it's back, revamped, evolved and better than ever in the American Professional series. Whether you're a gigging musician, recording artist, bedroom player or just starting out this guitar is of extremely high quality and is one to keep for life!

A resonant and light ASH body is finished in a lovely vintage style blonde finish making it a really great looking guitar. The neck is crafted from fine Maple and features a Walnut 'Skunk Stripe'. The satin neck finish allows unhindered playability and playing speed. Coupled with a gorgeous Maple fingerboard this guitar's got everything going for it! The modern 'deep C' shape neck is so comfortable and makes playing a joy. 

The all new Fender V-Mod pickups allow this guitar to sing like never before whilst retaining that classic Tele tone we know and love. From glassy cleans to punchy crunch to full on Rock and Blues this guitar can do it all, simple but very effective. With the addition of the 'Treble Bleed' circuit, as you roll off the volume you don't lose clarity or sparkle, a great feature if you use the volume knob to control your sound. 

With classic knurled metal knobs, black pickguard and Chrome hardware this thing just looks incredible. Treat yourself today with the Fender American Pro Tele in the lovely Butterscotch Blonde!

Fender Say:

Fender is guided by one clear, simple directive: make life better for musicians. While the original Telecaster certainly did that (and then some), we weren't content to rest on our laurels. Our team of mad scientists examined every component in near-microscopic detail. If we were able to improve it with a new design or modern materials we did; if it didn't need improvement, we left it alone. When the wood chips and solder fumes settled, what was left was the American Professional Telecaster—everything you need to play your best.

V-Mod Telecaster pickups are engineered with a proprietary blend of alnico magnet types. Each pickup is voiced specifically for its position, creating high-output tone with vintage warmth and the crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend.

Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional “Deep C” neck profile sports more substantial shoulders. The increased mass and altered geometry creates a more natural feel that’s perfect for chord and single-note playing alike.

Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.

The new Telecaster bridge sports three compensated brass barrel saddles for accurate intonation and vintage-informed tone. Combining vintage style with modern feel and performance, the redesigned “ashtray” cover stays out of your way, even when palm-muting.

The treble-bleed circuit maintains the high end when turning down the volume knob to reduce gain, letting your tone shine through, no matter where the instrument’s volume is set.

An original-era Fender design element, a bone nut contributes to superior tone and performance. Many players consider bone nuts to be more “organic” sounding.
