Updated with a select alder body, noiseless pickups and soft C shape neck.

The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar has a new compound-radius fretboard for effortless string bending anywhere along the neck. The 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 hum.

Other features include a bound-top body with belly cut, S-1 switching, chromed brass bridge saddles, bound top and a beveled neck heel. Fender includes a new molded Fender-exclusive SKB case with glass-reinforced latches and TSA locks, cable, and strap locks with the American Deluxe Telecaster.

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.

Fender has fine-tuned the sized, shape, and wire gauge of the pickup coils to balance the magnetic responsiveness essential to great tone. Fender N3 pickups represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. An Alnico 5 magnet is used in the bridge position, Alnico 2 in the middle position, and Alnico 3 for the neck position.

  • Select alder body with contoured heel and body
    Comfortable soft C shape neck with choice of maple or rosewood fingerboard
    Noiseless N3 Tele pickups for vintage sound without hum

  • twang paradise

    As reviewed by Strokemeister on 5/16/2010

    This guitar is a dreaam!! Great attention to detail the finish is impecable and the pickups are just to die for!! Great spanky twangy tone (best when combined with maple neck) this guitar is perfect for country, blues, rock punk or almost any type of music although i didn't LOVE the sound with heavy distortion on. Great sounds like the Clash and classic blues... the neck is fast and smooth, action was just perfect on mine absolutely loved it!! =D

  • Keep coming back

    As reviewed by Will Hunter on 6/15/2010

    This is my second American Deluxe Tele, and my fourth Tele overall. I kept buying them, trading for something else I thought I wanted, and always returned to the Telecaster. I won't make that mistake again. This American Deluxe is the best of the bunch. Elegant and raunchy at the same time, this guitar does what it's supposed to do. Crystal clean bell like tones from the noiseless pickups, then kick in a pedal, or B channel on the amp, and it sings, spits and growls with the best of them, all the while retaining what it is that make this guitar an all time favorite: the tone. This one is in Olympic white pearl, with a maple neck and fretboard. The pickguard is tortoise shell as is the binding, and the look is stunning. Fit and finish are perfect, as they should be for this price. Comfort and playability are perfect as well. I was a Strat guy for a long time, and I really wanted to be a Les Paul guy, but I always found my way back to the Telecaster. And I'm glad I did. This guitar is a keeper.

  • Great Tele

    As reviewed by Astrid on 6/17/2010

    Definitely a great telecaster. For a person who is a fan of all guitars, this one is very much recommended. Worth the price and hours and hours of great tone from this bad boy. A MUST!
