OVERVIEW

Made for chicken pickin' and slick slidin'.

The Fender James Burton Telecaster pays homage to the famed Nashville guitarist whose studio contributions figure in some of the biggest records of all time. The basswood body is fitted with three special pickups designed to James Burton's specifications and its unique five-way Strat-o-Tele switching plus the S-1 switch gives you seven pickup configurations. The U-shaped '60s maple neck has a maple fingerboard, gold-plated deluxe tuners with pearl or black chrome buttons, and vintage-style frets. The string-thru-body, hardtail bridge delivers lots of resonant sustain. Includes case.

5-Position Strat-o-Tele switching with S-1:
Position 1. Bridge Pickup
Position 2. Bridge and Middle Pickup in parallel (series w/ S-1 down)
Position 3. Bridge and Neck Pickup in parallel
Position 4. Middle and Neck Pickup in parallel (series w/ S-1 down)
Position 5. Neck Pickup
