The soul of all fender guitars is the Telecaster, the one that started it all. Over 60 years of innovation and music history make today's American Elite Telecaster a true American treasure.
From the alder body that drips "Tele tone", to the maple neck and iconic headstock, this is classic Telecaster. But look closer and you'll find updates that only add to its character.
Dual-action truss rods provide stability and precise, proper neck adjustments while 4th generation noiseless pickups deliver anything from Tele twang to signature growl, without all the interference. A 6-saddle bridge allows for spot-on intonation up and down the ebony fretboard, and the 9.5" to 14" compound radius neck is truly a pleasure to play. At the end of that neck are 6 locking tuners on a classic Tele headstock to keep you in tune song after song.
Grab a modern piece of music history, then make your own with the American Elite Telecaster.
