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. .

What is your opinion of this product?
Shipped fast, feels great, looks fantastic with the butterscotch, and the sound is just eye watering. This isn't a replacement for my strat, but more a compliment to get the tones a strat just can't do. Like that twang and spank from the middle and bridge positions. Every position on the pickup selector is usable and it's yard to pick a tone, because I just want to switch pickups and hear them all (I'll settle into something). All in all, beautiful guitar that puts out a beautiful tone.

Incredible Instrument!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
Fantastic Playability! I love it. I have had a few telecasters, one with a B-Bender. I never really liked them much as I have always been a Les Paul player. I bought this one because I got a gig with a country group and needed the snap and the twang. I was expecting to suffer through the tuning issues and thin sound as I have in the past. This time was different. I have not been able to put this guitar down. I immediately felt like it was an extension of my hands and instantly coaxed some of the best Tele tones I have ever heard from myself anyway..... the neck is so comfortable. I cannot make this guitar go out of tune even with some crazy behind the nut bends and ridiculous string bending. The tall narrow frets are something far different than I am used to, but they are wonderful. All in all this is a monumental step forward in Telecaster technology. I highly recommend it to anyone who is thinking of making the jump to the Telecaster. Simple and elegant.

Best Telecaster Ever!
What is your opinion of this product?
This guitar is truly amazing! It is the perfect combination of classic Tele features with a few modern touches to improve intonation and playability. The pickups have a vintage warmth to them, and a fullness that I haven't found in some of the other Tele pickups. The tone is fantastic! The neck pickup with the tone control rolled back slightly delivers a nice, mellow, almost semi-hollow body sound which is great for jazz and blues! And, of course, the bridge pickup provides all of the snap and twang that Tele players have come to love! The neck has a nice feel. It's a little thicker than the "C" neck, but not too thick. It's just perfect! I love the tall narrow frets as well. The guitar plays really easy. Best Telecaster I have ever played!

Every Tone Covered!!
What is your opinion of this product?
After about 12 years of strictly using Les Paul's and SG's, I took a jump to the Tele. First off both are great brands but are different animals. Rest assured the American Pro will have you covered from Country, Rock, and Jazz tones. I haven't thrown a high gain pedal in front of it yet but I'm guessing it could shred. Got it perfectly set up. No flaws. I got the Mystic Green. Beautiful and stunning. Plugged straight into my Champion 600. Cranked the amp and every tone I needed was right there with just two pickups and three positions. Volume cleans up without losing anything. The new neck is great. I have huge hands and the frets felt perfect for bends, chords - and if you use your thumb no issues. Like silk. I threw my Blackstone OD and MXR Carbon Copy and went even deeper with tone. The tone and volume circuit covers everything like I said. You can get super clean tones and push an amp into OD without pedals, pick or no pick. Great value and quality here from Fender and AM!
