OVERVIEW

Packed with a baker's dozen of innovations.

The American Elite Telecaster is the original solidbody electric guitar reimagined for modern players who want bleeding-edge performance and 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.

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 in.-14 in. compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern C in.-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern D in.-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.
