Product Description

Reimagined for modern players, the American Elite Telecaster's guitar’s stunning style, easy playing feel and flexible sound that meets any musical need, was made to tear it up on stage or in the studio. Packed with a baker’s dozen of innovations, the American Elite Telecaster is the original solid body electric guitar for players who want bleeding-edge performance and timeless visual style.

Fender American Elite Telecaster Guitar Unique Features

  • Dual Action Truss Rod System with Heel Mounted Spoke-Wheel Adjustment
  • Large White Pearloid or Large Black Pearloid Dot Position Inlays
  • Knurled Flattop Control Knobs
  • Top of Body is Bound 
  • Belly Cut on the Back of the Body

Featured on all American Elite instruments, the new fourth generation Noiseless pickups are only available in this series, and represent a quantum leap in pickup design. Combining authentic, vintage-style sound with effectively noise-free performance, these are the pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, generating sparkling cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power. Engineered for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. New locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the synthetic bone nut for buzz-free performance. The truss rod wheel is positioned at the butt end of the neck for easy accessibility when adjusting neck relief.

Fender is renowned for head-turning style, and this guitar is no different—from the refined ergonomic rear contour that hugs the player’s body to the black chrome headstock logo and large pearloid fret markers this instrument will dazzle the audience with elegant style. The American Elite Telecaster is a bold new addition to the Fender family tree, a top-notch performer that can handle whatever music you might you throw at it. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument.

What is your opinion of this product?
I owned a similar fender telecaster before and wanted to get another and it’s just as good as I remember, if not better. It was my first time ordering through American music supply and definitely will not be my last. Customer service was great and received order sooner than expected. I would recommend this guitar and also website to any fellow musician. Thanks!

Wow... plays and sounds like a dream
What is your opinion of this product?
Just got it a few days ago... can’t stop playing it. I haven’t played my Jeff Beck Strat since this turquoise marine w/ebony fretboard elite arrived. The ebony fret board is solid black... I know there are some ebony fret boards out there that are discolored (not my favorite) however this looks and feels amazing with the new C to D cut neck. And the 9.5 to 14 radius. And the 4th generation noiseless pickups are a dream for live and studio work. So easy to get right to the creativity of jammin without the sonic distractions of unwanted noise. And the S1 switch is welcomed... for those times you don’t want that “Tele” sound, but more of a rich, fat humbucker tone. Yes, the belly cut is welcomed as well... just adds to the pleasure of playing. I literally play for hours in my studio to tracks and loops... we had a jam session with top players... some played with the likes of Jackson Browne .. and this little “Elite Tele” held its own in all styles. Trust me, you gotta get one!

What is your opinion of this product?
Very different playing and sounding than my American pro and Am. Standard. I like it though, and 12 pay made it accessible. I would say try one out and see.

Unbelievable tone!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I use this Tele in my R&B/Dance cover band and it has not disappointed. I receive regular compliments from the audience and band members of its sound/tone from recordings and live gigs! It can also cover Jazz and Rock songs so I only need one guitar for the entire gig! And the looks...the metallic black finish and rosewood fret board are a beautiful combination! The pickup system is so versatile that I can dial-up almost any sound that's needed. The workmanship is top notch as I have not encountered any hardware or technical issues. I've had it for 8 months but I'm still discovering new tones to cover so many different genres or textures. Lastly, it's so easy to play and get the sounds that I hear in my head...can't do much about the "voices"...but the tones are so beautiful! B-bye Strat and PRS CE24...get back in the closet.
