The Fender American Professional II Roasted Pine Telecaster is a unique take on the world's first commercially successful solidbody electric guitar. Fender has reimagined their flagship American Professional series with a roasted pine body and innovative features that push the boundaries of Telecaster tone and playability.

Roasted Pine Body Resonates with Vintage Character

The Fender American Professional II Telecaster's roasted pine body provides a lightweight, organic tone with rich complexity. The roasting process chemically transforms the wood, reducing moisture and softening the pine for enhanced resonance and stability. The result is a distinctively woody, open voice with shimmering highs, punchy mids and tight low end—vintage Tele tone at its finest.

New V-Mod II Pickups Deliver Articulate Twang and Snarl

New V-Mod II Telecaster single-coil pickups are more articulate and touch-sensitive than ever, with abundant twang, snap and snarl. The bridge pickup barks with clarity and focus, while the neck pickup sings with warmth and detail. A push-push switch on the tone pot toggles between series and parallel wiring for wider tonal variety.

Top-Load Bridge and Sculpted Neck Heel Enhance Playability

The innovative top-load/string-through bridge provides flexible setup options and enhanced sustain. Adjust individual string height and intonation for your perfect feel. A contoured neck heel and rolled fretboard edges make the upper register instantly accessible. The satin-finished maple neck glides effortlessly under your fingers.

Modern Refinements Meet Timeless Style

From its lightweight ash or alder body to its fast-playing maple neck, the Telecaster's elegant simplicity has endured for over 65 years. The American Professional II Telecaster blends Fender's rich history with modern enhancements for professional-grade tone and performance.
