The Fender American Professional II Telecaster is a refined and upgraded take on the iconic electric guitar that started it all. Now available with a rosewood fingerboard, this Tele was designed for musicians who want a familiar classic with modern playability.

V-Mod II Pickups Provide Classic Tone with Clarity

New V-Mod II single-coil pickups deliver the bright, punchy tone that put the Telecaster on the map, with an articulate voice that cuts through a mix. The bridge pickup packs a snarling, gnarly bite, while the neck pickup offers warmth and depth for rhythm playing.

A Neck That Feels Like an Extension of Your Hands

With a satin finish, sculpted neck heel and rolled fretboard edges, the neck on this Tele feels fast, comfortable and natural. The Deep C-shaped profile fills your hand without feeling bulky. Narrow tall frets make bending strings and fretting chords effortless.

Flexible Bridge Provides Classic Looks and Modern Versatility

While the 3-saddle top-load/string-through bridge recalls the original Tele bridge, it provides excellent intonation and the ability to adjust string height and tension for your perfect setup. Compensated brass saddles contribute to the authentic Tele tone.

Premium Components and Playability

From the alder body to the vintage-style tuners, no detail was overlooked. 22 narrow tall frets, a 9.5" fretboard radius and a sculpted neck heel provide an unparalleled playing experience. A deluxe molded case protects your investment.
