Overview

Fender's limited-edition American Elite Telecaster QMT takes the iconic "workingman's guitar" and raises it to a piece of fine art. From the beauty of the woods and finish to the innovative electronics and superb craftsmanship, it combines timeless visual style with modern, cutting-edge performance.

Fender American Elite Tele Electronics

Latest generation electronics and innovative design

Featured only on the American Elite series, Fender's fourth-generation Noiseless pickups combine authentic, vintage-style sound with noise-free performance that's superb from ultra-clean to full-scream overdrive. Whether you're one of the legion of Tele players who lay back into traditional country, blues and soul, or a modern rocker who's looking for an extra edge, this American Elite Tele will take you there in style.

Fender American Elite Tele Contoured Neck Heel

Playability gains an added boost from the maple on maple neck. While many modern guitars boast a compound-radius fingerboard, the American Elite Telecaster goes one further with a compound-profile neck for added comfort and ease of play. Combining a 9.5" radius and a modern-"C" profile at the nut, it smoothly moves to a "D" profile and a 14" radius by the time it reaches the updated, contoured neck heel. 

Fender American Elite Tele Aqua Marine Quilt Top

Film star looks

Sure, it plays and sounds great, but the looks make it a truly spectacular instrument. Boasting an translucent burst finish that makes the bound, quilted-maple top look almost three-dimensional, it's a showstopper every time it makes an appearance. Pick one up and you'll be faced with the dilemma of deciding whether to enjoy its extreme playability, or just admire the beauty of its form. 

Fender American Elite Tele Aqua Marine Quilt Top

The Telecaster is often called a "workhorse," for its unique combination of tonal versatility and its simplicity of form. By that token, the refined looks, enhanced playability and expanded tonality of the American Elite Tele make that "workhorse" a favorite in the highest stakes race. The guitar includes a deluxe hardshell case.
