      Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Ash Electric Guitar (423691)

The 21st century way to rock Tele style!

Tone, tradition and innovation. Fender's new American Deluxe Telecaster is the 21st century way to rock with a Telecaster, graced by the added distinction of a traditional ash body. The compound radius fretboard allows effortless string bending anywhere along the neck, and staggered locking tuners improve tuning stability for stunt guitarists who like to bend behind the nut. New N3 Noiseless pickups provide improved Telecaster tones for snappy bell-like chime with no the hum; other features include S-1 switching and chromed brass bridge saddles.

Fender N3 Noiseless pickups N3 Noiseless pickups deliver the best of yesterday and today, because they deliver landmark vintage Fender tone and response without the hum that can plague single-coil pickups. Using an improved stacked coil-coil design, N3 Noiseless pickups are specially tailored for each Telecaster pickup position. The insulated metal core of each pickup position type differs in thickness and composition for enhanced tone, and Fender has fine-tuned the sized, shape, and wire gauge of the coils to balance the magnetic responsiveness essential to great tone. N3 Noiseless pickups represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

  • plays smooth as silk.

    As reviewed by Clarence on 5/24/2014

    I purchased the fender american deluxe butterscotch blonde ash telecaster just 17 days ago and I have had a chance to play this guitar on 3 occassions with the band that I play in and all i can say is WOW! this guitar is a little lighter than my other two telecasters and plays like creamy butter. We play a mix of southern gospel, country and some gospel rock and this axe is absolutely perfectly suited for the types of music we play. The guitar is stunning in appearance and very comfortable even after playing for several hours. the only negative thing I could say about this setup is that the case that the guitar came in was not as high a quality as I had expected but that was a small price to pay for a premium guitar that far exceeds other quality guitars that I have owned in the last 43 years. If you choose to buy this guitar,you won't be disappointed.

  • The one and only tele

    As reviewed by Werner on 8/5/2014

    This is the only tele you can possibly ever need. I tried many before I tried this one. Had to drive 50 miles to play it and I was immediately sold on it. I see no use for the s1 on a two pickup guitar ( it only serves a function in 1 position)!but it came with it so I am not complaining. The sound of this solid ash body makes all the difference. I have 5 strats and one custom made strat, but I love to pick up this tele almost every single day :-)

  • The sound of the gods....

    As reviewed by Nicholas Barrios on 5/14/2010

    This is also another guitar that I was really impressed with. Considering how many people touched it before I did, it was still in tune. The strings were set up nice and high so I could pound on them real hard and I could get a nice popping twangy sound even with the gain up a bit. The S-1 switch also added to the sound and gave it more variety. It was also nice because it was noiseless. The finish was also beautiful because it was transparent and you could see the grain. A common trait on guitars but still enjoyable.
