Packed with attitude and innovation, the limited-edition American Elite Telecaster HSS mixes bleeding-edge performance with timeless visual style. It’s the future of workhorse guitar design—a versatile, unique hybrid that was made to tear it up on stage or in the studio. This custom-contoured Tele® guitar’s stunning looks, easy playing feel and flexible sound can scratch any musical itch.
This Telecaster body is crafted from strong, dense ash—a longtime Fender classic. Notably resonant and sweet-sounding, it features an attractive grain.
The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.
This fingerboard is curved for comfortable chording at the nut, flattening out higher up on the neck for choke-free bending and faster playing.
Voiced specifically for its position, the ShawBucker humbucking pickup delivers highly dynamic, multi-dimensional tone while resisting electrical noise.
This Telecaster bridge sports six chrome-plated brass saddles for classic Tele tone with twang and warmth.
A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, as well as being an authentic original-era Fender design element.
