A Look Into The Parallel Universe

American Elite Telecaster® HSS

ASH BODY
ASH BODY

This Telecaster body is crafted from strong, dense ash—a longtime Fender classic. Notably resonant and sweet-sounding, it features an attractive grain.

LACQUER FINISH
LACQUER FINISH

The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

COMPOUND-RADIUS FINGERBOARD
COMPOUND-RADIUS FINGERBOARD

This fingerboard is curved for comfortable chording at the nut, flattening out higher up on the neck for choke-free bending and faster playing.

SHAWBUCKER PICKUPS
SHAWBUCKER PICKUPS

Voiced specifically for its position, the ShawBucker humbucking pickup delivers highly dynamic, multi-dimensional tone while resisting electrical noise.

HARDTAIL BRIDGE
HARDTAIL BRIDGE

This Telecaster bridge sports six chrome-plated brass saddles for classic Tele tone with twang and warmth.

BONE NUT
BONE NUT

A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, as well as being an authentic original-era Fender design element.
