With its blend of timeless Fender vibe and present-day appointments, the American Special Telecaster is something to behold, both aesthetically and sonically. The American Special features a modern “C” neck and a Vintage-Style bridge that gives players a familiar, yet modern impression. The addition of a Greasebucket tone circuit doesn’t add any bass when rolling of highs, which keeps your tone clear and focused. Texas Special pickups yield a huge sound that operates on very low noise, while Alnico 5 magnets enhance dynamics. Couple these pickups with a smooth-playing rosewood fingerboard adorned with jumbo frets and the American Special cements itself as a truly player-focused instrument. Putting legendary tone and feel at your fingertips is the American Special Tele; it is the perfect guitar for players looking to make the leap to a USA Fender.

Why We Love Fender
It's hard to find a name more synonymous with guitars than Fender.
