With figured woods and striking finishes combined with comtemporary performance features and detailed craftsmanship, new American Custom Telecaster® and Stratocaster® models are not only beautiful to behold, but also highly functional in traditional Fender fashion. These unique models come complete with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish, as well as a black hardshell case and Custom Shop certificate of authenticity.

Premium Features of the Fender Custom Shop American Custom Telecaster

This Custom Shop American Custom is equipped with two Custom Shop hand-wound single-coil pickups - a Nocaster bridge pickup and a Texas Special neck pickup - helping to produce pure telecaster warmth and snap with modern versatility that is perfect for on stage and in the studio. Other premium features include a compound radius fingerboard, four-way pickup switching and modern wiring, a single-ply parchment pickguard and a RSD telecaster bridge.

Unrivaled Quality and Craftsmanship

Since 1987, the skilled craftsmen in Fender's Corona, California ''dream factory'' have been producing guitars that are known worldwide for their artistry and unrivaled quality. Ranging from the fine to the fantastic, whether it's building a new custom instrument from the ground up or modifying an existing one, their best is the best. These wonderful instruments have been crafted for and with the input of the world's finest guitarists such as Clapton, Springsteen, Cray, Gilmour, Townshend, Wilko Johnson and Stevie Ray Vaughan, to name just a few.

The History of the Telecaster

The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster. An indispensable instrument, the Telecaster was the world's first successful solid-body electric guitar. Perfected after two years of development - and a name change or two - the Telecaster debuted in February 1951 and began its steady ascent towards the stage and studio. Ingeniously engineered with the ability to be heard both loud and clear, it was a marvel of simple design elegance and workhorse functionality. It is perhaps fitting testimony to its essential original rightness that the Telecaster design has hardly changed ever since.
