The Fender Special Edition Custom Deluxe Telecaster electric guitar features a select ash body with a thin nitrocellulose lacquer finish that "breathes" and resonates with the responsiveness of a vintage model. Add in all of the modern upgrades and you've got a great playing, versatile guitar that will get you through the job at hand in comfortable style and with superior sound. The custom specifications for the one-piece maple neck come together to give an incredible playing experience. We loved the neck profile on the Custom Shop's Tribute Series Jeff Beck Esquire so much, we had Fender put it on this model. From its large modified V-shaped maple neck and flatter 9.5" fingerboard radius, to the taller 6105 frets, these elements combine for an incredible feel with easy chording plus allows for amazing string bends that ring out clear and don't choke out. You can express yourself freely without any worries. Hardware on the Custom Deluxe Telecaster includes Fender/Schaller staggered, cast/sealed tuning machines for smooth, precise tuning stability, and a chrome-plated steel Tele bridge plate with six plated brass saddles and string-thru-body design. The quality materials specially chosen for this bridge add to the vintage musical response, while giving you the modern benefits of improved intonation, height adjustment, and smooth edges for comfort. The details of the bridge effect the attack, decay, sustain, and release of the notes in a beautiful musical way that every now and again can give you goose bumps. Other appointments include a single-ply white pickguard and a top-hat switch cap. Includes hardshell case, strap, straplocks, cable, and certificate of authenticity.

The Special Edition Custom Deluxe Telecaster is loaded with a Nocaster single-coil pickup in the bridge position, and a Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele single-coil pickup in the neck position. These are arguably the best Tele pick-ups the Custom Shop makes and give you that very desirable, yet somewhat elusive sparkle and spank of a vintage Tele. Additionally, it features a special 4-way Tele switch that is custom wired in an intuitive way with the player in mind. The back 3 positions give you the standard traditional settings in the traditional order, and you have the added option to slam the switch all the way forward for the killer 4th position of both pickups in series, which gives you a fuller, fatter humbucker tone with more output.
