The Fender American Professional II Telecaster maple fingerboard electric guitar is the latest evolution of an iconic instrument. Fender has upgraded and improved their flagship Telecaster to meet the demands of today's professional guitarist. New V-Mod II Telecaster single-coil pickups provide the crisp tone that Telecasters are known for, with greater articulation and clarity. The satin-finished maple neck and narrow-tall frets make this an exceptionally comfortable and fast guitar to play.

V-Mod II Pickups: Twang Redefined

The V-Mod II Telecaster pickups are a major upgrade, providing classic Tele tone with tighter bass, richer mids and smoother highs. These articulate pickups make harmonics sing and accentuate the snap and snarl that Telecasters are famous for. Single notes are round and full, while chordal playing is punchy and defined.

Fast-Playing Maple Neck

The satin-finished maple neck on the American Professional II Telecaster feels slick and fast. The modern eep C-neck profile is comfortable for all playing styles. Narrow-tall frets provide a familiar feel for bends and vibrato while facilitating effortless fretting. The sculpted neck heel allows unimpeded access to the upper frets.

Enhanced Bridge Provides Superior Intonation

The new 3-saddle bridge improves on the original Tele bridge design. Compensated brass saddles provide accurate intonation for all six strings. Players can adjust string height and tension to suit their preferences. This flexible bridge design retains the tone and esthetic of a traditional Telecaster bridge while addressing issues with intonation that plague vintage-style bridges.

Premium Features and Components

Additional features include an alder body, vintage-style tuners and a deluxe molded case. All the electronics, hardware and finishes are crafted to Fender's highest standards for professional-level instruments. The American Professional II Telecaster delivers premium performance and innovation in an instantly familiar package.
