The American Professional Telecaster is here to help you take your next step forward in electric guitar playing. A true evolution of the original Tele’s design, it stays true to the legendary guitar’s heritage while continuing to innovate in terms of sound, playability, and looks. No matter your style, the American Pro Telecaster will help you take your playing to new heights. V-Mod single-coil Tele pickups were designed by pickup expert Tim Shaw to provide specific voicings for each position, with a healthy mix of different alnico magnets that allow for new tonal details to be discovered. Sparkly highs, buttery midrange, and smooth low-end frequencies are all on display thanks to these upgraded pickups. The American Professional is also easier to play than ever, thanks to a "Deep C" neck profile, providing your fretting hand with deeper shoulders for a more ergonomic feel. Other improvements include a Genuine Bone nut, Narrow-Tall frets, and an Elite molded case. With its array of upgrades, the American Professional Telecaster is a must-have for players looking to further their musical capabilities while also bring home one of Fender’s most storied instruments.
