Fender American Elite Telecaster Electric Guitar - Ocean Turquoise
Moving forward from the already fantastic American Deluxe Series was always going to be a huge task, but Fender have pulled it off in style with the stunning American Elite Series.
Taking the modern player into consideration, Fender have updated both the pick-ups and the neck profile to accommodate the requirements of the contemporary player.
The neck profile was a dramatic change for the brand as it features a significantly different shape to the classic models that people are used to, plus the ebony fretboard is a step away from the traditionally used rosewood. However, these changes proved to be a hit amongst even the most traditional Fender purists as the profile feels even more comfortable under the hand when moving across the entirety of the fretboard, making the guitar playable to even the heaviest shredders!
Likewise, the addition of the now standard Fender Noiseless pick-ups which have continued to impress and are now in their 4th generation - better than ever before. Producing that classic, unmistakable twanging Telecaster sound but with modern technology that improves the reliability and removes any unwanted noises including buzzing and feedback.
Topped of in a stunning Ocean Turquoise finish, the Telecaster is still the Tele that you know and love but with a few modern twists to bring it right up to date with the modern world.
