Fender American Elite Telecaster Thinline Maple - Natural


We're sorry. This item is no longer in stock.


Dressed top-to-bottom with a huge array of features, Fender's American Elite Telecaster Thinline is an exceptional guitar from every angle. Its semi-hollow, thinner ash body is great for players looking for a lightweight American Elite, and its natural finish, aged white pearloid pickguard and f-hole make it immediately recognizable. The all-new 4th Generation Noiseless single-coils give off that classic Fender sound without any unwanted background noise, whether you're playing relaxed cleans or blistering high-gain tones. S-1 Switching lets you discretely access series/parallel wiring options, putting a whole new range of sounds at your disposal. The guitar's exclusive American Elite neck features a compound radius that starts as a "C" at the nut, but slowly becomes a "D" shape at the heel, providing players with unmatched comfort across all frets. The 22-fret maple fingerboard features a compound radius as well - starting at 9.5" and finishing at 14" near the higher frets, making it incredibly versatile. Cutting-edge performance, polished looks, and distinct tone combine to form the ultimate in Fender goodness with the American Elite Telecaster Thinline.
