American Elite Telecaster® HSS

  • Highlights

    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.
