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. .

I am dlighted with my purchase
What is your opinion of this product?
I own a couple of American Telecasters as well as a Strat. One is a 60's vintage and another was new in 2005. Fender has really improved on, what I consider an almost faultless design. I have relatively large hands and the change in the bridge and the resultant string spacing has made playing easier for me. I also have noticed the slight pick-up mods. It makes for a distinctive tone, that while subtle, is noticeable. Overall quality in fit and finish is superb. American Musical Supply was a real pleasure doing business with...shipment was prompt and again, quality of the product outstanding. All of my purchases through AMS have been equally flawless. I will continue to make all of my through your company. Thanks!

Possibly the Best Ever Version of the USA Tele
What is your opinion of this product?
Beautiful workmanship on this latest version of the "American Standard", with gorgeous woodgrain on the ash body, nicely polished frets (no sharp ends), and comfortable neck profile. But perhaps best of all is the tone; the new pickups give all the classic Tele tone in all positions, but just a touch more rich, and without the notorious "ice pick" trebliness of the bridge pickup. I also have a USA made G&L ASAT Classic, and for my money, recent year Fenders couldn't compare to the tone and workmanship of the USA G&L models. This beautiful new Fender might have changed my mind! And as always, I'm extremely happy with AMS and their customer service, and loves the convenience of their payment plan.

Exactly what you would expect
What is your opinion of this product?
Came in exactly as I expected, just like everything I've ordered from AMS. Guitar was spotless and in perfect condition. I've owned Mexican made Fenders for many years and have loved them, this is my first American made Fender, and I am not disappointed, worth the extra money. Everything fits and plays right, just needed a tuned up out of the box and was ready to play. Action is a bit high for me, but that's easy enough to fix, and that's a personal preference so hard to complain, although it would be nice to have the option on higher end stuff to get that taken care of before shipping it. Beautiful finish and feel, can't wait to spend some time breaking it in!

Rock Solid Tele!
What is your opinion of this product?
Fender definitely put a lot of thought and quality control into these new Professional series guitars. I got the Butterscotch finish. Beautiful!I really like the new pickups. Crisp, articulate and they have a bite to them.Great for Blues, Rock,and Country. Solid construction all around.I like the new fret wire.Nice brass saddles. Notes just sing off the fretboard. The only issue for me was the new neck size. A bit too chuncky towards the heel for me. Definitely play one before buying.Quite a bit different than the usual "C" shape neck.

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.
