The Fender Susan Tedeschi Telecaster pays tribute to the blues maestro’s workhorse electric, capturing every nuance of her 1993 American Standard Tele—a staple of countless recordings and performances, and the very guitar pictured on the cover of her ’98 sophomore album, Just Won’t Burn. Featuring custom-voiced single-coil pickups and a slimmed-down C neck profile, this premium signature model translates Susan Tedeschi’s fiery, soulful tone to your hands.

Fender Susan Tedeschi Telecaster Caribbean Mist Finish

Authentic Vibe Straight From Tedeschi’s Treasured Tele

With its Aged Caribbean Mist polyurethane finish, the Susan Tedeschi Tele captures the timeless vibe of its inspiration. You’ll swear this guitar has been loved for decades as soon as you pick it up. It’s an authentic homage to the modern blues legend’s choice instrument, which seems to take on more unique charm with each passing year. The 4-ply tortoiseshell pickguard and nickel hardware complete the iconic aesthetic, encapsulating the essence of Tedeschi’s prized ’93 Tele.

Fender Susan Tedeschi Telecaster Custom Pickups

Custom Pickups Deliver Signature Blues Tone

At the heart of this signature Fender Telecaster are a pair of custom-voiced Tedeschi single-coil pickups that meticulously reproduce the warm, vocal-like character of Susan’s beloved guitar. The bridge pickup sings with clear, biting Telecaster twang for idyllic leads and rhythm work, while the neck single coil provides the smooth, rounded tone that lets you pour on the mojo. Together, they give you an incredibly dynamic and responsive tonal palette for any blues, rock or roots style.

Fender Susan Tedeschi Telecaster Custom Neck Profile

Vintage-Inspired Neck Profile Sparks Effortless Playability

One of the defining characteristics of Tedeschi’s iconic Telecaster is its slim C-shaped neck carve. Fender’s master builders have precisely recreated this comfortable, old-school profile on the Susan Tedeschi Tele. It feels like an extension of your own hand, making it easy to wrap your fingers around the rosewood fretboard and fly across the strings with Tedeschi’s signature phrasing and feel. Plus, medium jumbo frets are the perfect surface for effortless bending, offering an easy-playing platform for expressive licks.

Fender Susan Tedeschi Telecaster TBX Tone Circuit

Expanded Tonal Horizons With the TBX Circuit

While classic Telecaster sound is always at your fingertips, the addition of Fender’s innovative Treble Bass Expander (TBX) tone control lets you tap into an expanded array of voices. Functioning like a standard tone knob from 1–5, the TBX circuit kicks in extra highs, lows, presence and output after position 5 for thicker, more robust tones. Dial in chunky, saturated lead sounds or beef up your clean and crunchy rhythms—the TBX circuit offers tonal versatility and functional simplicity.

For blues and roots players seeking an instrument that oozes soul, look no further than the Fender Susan Tedeschi Telecaster. With its custom pickups, carefully carved vintage-style neck and iconic Aged Caribbean Mist finish, this signature Tele makes it easy to channel Tedeschi’s raw, emotive style in your own playing.
