Product Description

The American Elite Telecaster sports 13 new features in the classic Tele shape, making it the ideal choice for the modern player looking for cutting edge performance with timeless visual style. The future of workhorse guitar design, this Tele 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.

Fender American Elite Tele Features

  • Single cutaway electric guitar
  • Two all-new fourth generation Noiseless single-coil Telecaster pickups
  • S-1 switching switches between parallel and series pickup wiring
  • Compound profile neck; redesigned contoured neck heel
  • 9.5-14 inches compound radius fingerboard
  • Locking short-post tuning machines
  • Includes redesigned ABS Elite Molded Case with TSA locks
All-New American Elite Neck
Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. 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 ergonomic support.

All-New 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups
With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.

New Double Action Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel
The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

All-New American Elite Neck Heel

For improved upper register access and elegantly functional modern style, the American Elite Series' new cutaway neck heel blends into the asymmetrical neck volute for comfortably enhanced playing feel.

Locking Tuning Machines with All Short Posts
Enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability from the new locking short post tuning machines. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.

S-1 Switch
The S-1 switch on this model activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.

Product Review

I received this beauty and it was love at first sight. Love the feel of this guitar, it fits like a glove. The neck feels great and it has great tone. The locking tuners are just one great feature, it makes string changing a much easier process. I also have to give a shout out to AMS for their payment plan, if not for them I would have had to save for a while to get this beauty.

Great Guitar

Product Review

Amazing guitar. Plays beautifully. The neck feels so nice. This guitar is truly a work of art. My only complaint would be that one of my ferrules fell out when changing the strings for the first time. Other then that I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone.

I love everything about this guitar.

Product Review

The neck is exactly what I've been looking for. I can get tones out the Elite Tele that I never thought was possible out of a Telecaster. On top of all that, the color and the finish are beautiful.

Best tele made

Product Review

One of the best tele's ever made. Having the contoured back is so much more comfortable. Great sound and tone. Super quiet thanks to the noiseless pickups.

Product Review

Just a really great guitar. Classic tone and made well. I love the locking tuners that make changing strings so easy and keep you in tune. I' m more of a Strat guy and the Tele gives me more options as far sounds go,it really is versatile. Fenders Elite brand well worth the money.

Incredible!

Product Review

I had a bad impression of noiseless pickups and when I bought this baby I was planning on replacing them with some nice Lollars. Well, it wasn’t necessary. This guitar is perfect. It plays and sounds perfect right out of the box. I really love it and it is very beautiful too.
