Fender’s world-class craftsmanship enhances the traditional Tele style with the elegant look of a Malaysian blackwood top while still retaining the authentic, original-era sound and style. Strong and dense, the Malaysian blackwood top of the 2017 LE Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster produces plenty of sustain, perfect for soaring lead lines and raucous rhythm work.
For authentic, vintage-inspired tone, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is loaded with two JP-90 single-coil pickups. Topped by 22 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining flat enough for wide bends. The custom string-through-body short-plate Tele bridge features compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation along the entire length of the neck.
