Overview

Fender is guided by one clear, simple directive: make life better for musicians. While the original Telecaster certainly did that (and then some), we weren’t content to rest on our laurels. Our team of mad scientists examined every component in near-microscopic detail. If we were able to improve it with a new design or modern materials we did; if it didn’t need improvement, we 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 new 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.

Great guitar!

Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

I always wanted one of these teles. After I adjusted the truss rod and saddles, guitar plays great. Love the neck. Not to thin, not too thick like a ball bat. Finish is perfect. Work of art. I have a lot of guitars, but this is the twangiests. Great for country or instrumentals, or anything, even jazz. Cost is reasonable compared to value.

    Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    I traded one of my American standard telecasters for the American professional telecasters because my GC rep told me I'd never miss it he was right need I say more the same things that I love about the standard I can say for the professional. Totally into the guitar. Fender made all the right improvements. Didn't even need a ride setup.

          Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

          What can I say, Fender knocked this out of the park. Bought a lefty model from guitar centers used catagory(looks brand new could only find a couple of scratches on the back). This is a phenomenal guitar. The pickups are every bit of telecaster you would expect. The new neck shape feels great in the hand. Comes with a very heavy duty case, I feel like I could throw it off my roof and the guitar would be fine, though I'm not going to. The only thing about this guitar is that the volume knob is a bit sticky but I bought this used so I can't say they are like this new, though it's nothing my tech can't fix it's a bit annoying for the time being. Finally summary great guitar everything you would expect a tele to be.
