FENDER AMERICAN SPECIAL TELECASTER

FENDER750 - 1000 euros | 1100 - 1300 dollars

Fender rolls out the American Special Telecaster Electric Guitar that delivers a healthy combination of modern and traditional tones at a price that won’t drain your wallet. But don’t let the stripped-down price fool you into thinking it’s a stripped-down guitar. It starts with an alder body, offering strength in construction and clarity in tone. The unique pickups on the Fender American Special Telecaster provide distinguishing sonic characteristics. The Texas Special single-coil Tele neck pickup delivers a full and meaty tone, the Texas Special Tele bridge pickup delivers that familiar Tele bite with a touch of warmth, and the Greasebucket tone circuit rolls off the highs without adding bass. The subtle 9-1/2" radius maple neck, maple fingerboard, and jumbo frets make this Fender guitar very finger-friendly. Other features include an original-style Tele bridge with three brass saddles, an oversized ’70s-style decal, and black pickup covers, plastic parts, and dot position inlays.
