Fender American Elite Telecaster  - 3-Color Sunburst

Fender’s American Elite Series takes the classic Telecaster and adds features that make it even better-suited to the demands and style of today’s players. And this one features a great-looking bound 3-color sunburst finish—a classic favorite!

 

The American Elite Telecaster features two all-new 4th-generation Noiseless pickups (exclusive to the American Elite Series), offering vintage-style Fender sound with noise-free performance. You get crisp, clear single-coil definition as well as big overdrive tones for extra power.

 

A new compound neck profile delivers comfort and easy playability. A modern “C”-shape at the nut morphs to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the asymmetrical heel, for enhanced left-hand playing feel. A new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

 

An S-1 switch—mounted in the volume control—activates alternate wiring options (series /parallel) for more tonal variations. It engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.

 

New locking short-post tuning machines give you easy re-stringing and enhanced playability by providing increased break angle at the nut, plus improved tuning stability.
