Product Description

The king of “twang” is back with a vengeance! If you’re looking for a guitar that will help you leave your mark on today’s music scene, look no further than Fender’s new American Professional Telecaster. This updated Tele exploded onto the scene in early 2017, and is a brilliant update on Fender’s classic instrument. The new model is exhilarating to play and takes no prisoners when pushed to its max. The notes seem to jump from your fingers and resonate with unparalleled clarity, making this Telecaster a monster axe that looks as good as it sounds.

The American Professional Telecaster is Fender’s newest take on its classic guitar that rocked the world of music over 60 years ago. While the American Standard Telecaster may have been “perfect” for some, Fender saw areas that could improve, and hence the birth of the Pro Tele. For the Telecaster player, the American Professional model will feel familiar, but then smack you in the face with a whole new attitude. Like its cousin the Strat, Fender’s American Professional Telecaster has a brand new pickup set and sees subtle changes to the neck, all while keeping the mojo that makes a Tele a Tele. The guitar sports plenty of traditional Tele “twang”, and fattens up nicely as you move through the pickup settings.

This guitar will not disappoint on any level as it stays true to its roots; yet will satisfy the most die-hard Telecaster player as well as newcomers to the instrument.

New and Improved
When Tim Shaw was tasked with designing the new pickups for the Fender American Professional Line, he immediately thought about the magnets. Similar to the American Professional Strat, the professional Tele’s mixed magnet configuration enables the guitar to produce high quality tones in every position. The mix of alnico magnets II, III and V are what make this Tele so special. By positioning the magnets inversely from the Stratocaster, Shaw maximized the power and response of the guitar, and accentuated the tones that give a Telecaster its signature sound. Each pickup has been specifically voiced for its own position, and similarly to the Strat, the Pro Telecaster uses the treble bleed circuit to preserve the properties of the high notes at much lower volumes. What you get is a Telecaster that captures the legendary sound that it is known for, with properties that compliment those nuances.

The American Professional Telecaster also sees a redesigned bridge for 2017. In the quest for perfect intonation, Fender constructed the Tele’s bridge with three compensated brass barrel saddles. The result is a guitar that stays in tune, and is easier to play thanks to the slightly wider string spacing that the new bridge achieves.

The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck finds its way onto all of the new Professional models. The Telecaster particularly benefits from the fatter shoulder of the neck making chording and single note picking a pleasure. In addition, the narrow-tall frets aid in the comfort of playing the instrument.

The Fender American Professional Telecaster is not a carbon copy of the American Standard. It is the Telecaster of the future, and brings the best parts of its past along with it. .

Classic Tele Tones

What is your opinion of this product?
This is a fantastic guitar. Thick neck, solid body, and great sounds. The Mystic Seafoam is a bit darker than in the images. Would give five stars, but the model I got had clearly been played and sent back (no tags, all plastic removed). Rep was less than helpful when I called back.

Wow
What is your opinion of this product?
All I can say is wow. Fender knocked it out of the park with this telecaster. Plenty of tone control for all the real music players of blues and classic country. This guitar isn’t built for that hard rock crap. This is a real country guitar. Took it back to its roots.
