Playing music is rebellious and mischievous by nature – it takes moxy to stride out on stage and convince a roomful of strangers to enjoy something they’ve never heard before. To turn heads you need the proper tool for the job, something like The Troublemaker Tele. A bound mahogany body with a maple top, custom Cabronita pickguard and lacquer finish? Yep, we’re definitely stirring up some trouble with this limited-edition release.
Refined and elegant, The Troublemaker Tele features a resonant mahogany body capped by a maple top with cream binding.
The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.
For ideal string placement and tuning stability, we included an Adjusto-Matic bridge along with a vintage-style stop tailpiece.
The Shawbucker open-coil humbucking pickup delivers unprecedented tonal dimension, with more overtones, snarling mids and balanced volume.
Combining a modern 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with narrow-tall frets enhances the playing feel while making it easier to bend notes without fretting out.
A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, as well as being an authentic original-era Fender design element.
