Fender is guided by one clear, simple directive: make life better for musicians. While the original Telecaster certainly did that (and then some), they weren’t content to rest on their laurels. Fender's team of mad scientists examined every component in near-microscopic detail. If they were able to improve it with a new design or modern materials, they did; if it didn’t need improvement, they left it alone. When the wood chips and solder fumes settled, what was left was the American Professional Telecaster—everything you need to play your best.

Developed by vintage pickup master Tim Shaw, the brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups are voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. The newly redesigned Telecaster bridge sports three compensated brass barrel saddles for the perfect combination of vintage style with modern feel and performance. Retain high-end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory. The modern “Deep C”- shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.

The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Telecaster is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.

Boy never forgets his first...

By The Mike Smith

Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

I had always wanted a telecaster, always have admired the classic look and sound. I went into guitar center and thought I would love the all rosewood neck mint green version, while that did look and feel great , the GC employee said try this one out. Playing a tele is a bit different than the other electrics I've owned (LP studio, 335, start). It took a while to dig into the guitar to find the sounds I like, but once you find them you know. Best thing about the guitar is the neck, every time you feel the neck its friendly and wanting to be played. Solid features throughout the guitar. One thing I was a bit surprised about was the weight, much heavier than the all rosewood neck version or most strats. Also a bit of buzz when playing lowere strings past the 9th fret, which I thing is ok especially with teles as it doesn't get picked up thru an amp and adds a little bit of the twang.

For me a tele is symbol of simplicity, with two knobs and a 3 way switch there's a lot of possibilities in this guitar. I got the guitar with 45 days period to return, and I'm not sure I want to let this thing go.

Pure fender enthusiasts will say that this new line is blasphemy. Probably have a point, but it's a powerful instrument that looks and feels great

Best guitar for the money

By Matt

Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

This is a very comfortable guitar with very nice tones. I did a nice comparison to the American Elite and American Standard: It's very close to the comfort and tone of the Elite, but it blows the Standard out of the water. Check this guitar out and hear/feel the difference. Fender put a lot of thought into the American Professional and it's amazing!

Overall excellent changes

Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

This is a good solid revision to the American standard, the new bridge is just what was needed to improve playability and recapture some of the telecaster sound of the first models. The pick up and new controls do just what is advertised and sound great and the neck and bridge PU together is excellent. The one I selected weighed just under 7 lbs ! unreal. The body even, with out the belly cut , feels comfortable as much as an original tele style can be, the body feels sonic and alive with vibrations. The bridge cover just does not fit well and is not really needed, a nice idea but poorly designed.

      Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Maple Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

      I was at GC to have my American Standard Tele serviced and they had this Mystic Seafoam tele on display. The sales guy encouraged me to try it and I was blown away. The tall frets and new neck are comfortable and I am so happy I didn't ponder whether or not to take it home.
