Body Shape & Aesthetics
The American Pro Telecaster features an ash body, which is renowned for delivering a twangy, airy, and sweet tone, along with firm lows, pleasant highs, a slightly scooped midrange. As well as delivering an overall resonant tone and good sustain, ash also carries a broad grain that looks great under a translucent finishes. Its lightweight properties allows the user to play the guitar for longer without strain on their shoulder, and is the perfect choice for beginners. For aesthetic appeal, players can benefit from the Gloss Polyurethane coating, which protects the guitar from wear and tear, whilst still allowing the natural grain of the ash to shine through. This stunning guitar also features a full host of classic Fender appointments including knurled flat-top control knobs, angled headstock, modern Ashtray bridge cover and a pickguard.
Deep C Neck Profile
The new American Pro series from Fender all feature a Deep C maple neck designed for comfort and speed. Unlike other neck profiles, the new Deep C features more substantial shoulders which creates a more natural feel in the player's hand, perfect for chords and single notes. Mounted with a rosewood fingerboard, players can achieve a mellow tone, compared to a maple.
Narrow Tall Frets
In addition to its comfortable neck profile, the Telecaster features 22 narrow tall frets, mounted on the rosewood fingerboard. These are slightly narrower than standard medium jumbo frets and are effective for bending notes and playing chords with superb intonation. They also offer extreme comfort, and improve hand flexibility.
Real Bone Nut for Sustain
A real bone nut is also incorporated into the design of the Telecaster, offering a classic appearance and excellent resonance and sustain. A bone nut also delivers a very balanced tone, and will last a long time. In addition, this type of nut naturally self lubricates and helps you stay in tune for longer.
Pickups & Treble Bleed Circuit
The American Pro Telecaster is equipped with two newly appointed V-mod single-coils in the bridge and neck position. This powerful duo includes a blend of alnico magnets, and are voiced specifically based on their position, delivering a full host of high-output tones along with vintage warmth and crisp clarity. If that's not enough, this iconic guitar also features a treble bleed circuit which maintains the high-end when played at low volumes, for home practice when loud volume isn't permitted.
Another new addition is the Telecaster bridge, which sports three compensated brass barrel saddles for accurate intonation and vintage-informed tone. Combining vintage style with modern feel and performance, the redesigned “ashtray” cover stays out of your way, even when palm-muting.
Elite Moulded Case
Finally, no guitar would be complete without a hardshell case. The Elite moulded case features body-hugging contours which holds your guitar firmly in place. TSA latches are also included for enhanced security and easy access. This durable case is also stackable for easy storage and transport.
