        Fender American Special Telecaster Maple Neck - Vintage Blonde

        What Fender Have To Say:

        The American Special Telecaster puts U.S-made Fender quality into the hands of players at any level. For the guitarist who wants a combination of timeless Fender style and contemporary features, this guitar delivers traditional Tele design with some extra elements for modern tone and performance, including dual Texas Special pickups and special circuitry, modern neck profile and fingerboard radius, and more. Great sounding, great looking and feeling, and made in the United States.


        Starting off with a solid Alder body to provide the rich and clear tone the body is finished in a gloss urethane finish which provides a beautifully glassy sheen and especially vivid color in a highly durable coating that effectively resists the ravages of weather, aging and fading. Matched to the body is a Maple neck consisting of a maple fingerboard, 21 jumbo frets, and a 25.5" scale length. Boasting the largest of the fret sizes from Fender, jumbo frets are tall and wide, which lets you get a better grip on the strings, enabling more control over them and making bends and vibrato easier. Making the American Special Telecaster a good choice for players with larger hands and thicker fingers. The back of the neck is cut to Fenders Modern C neck shape which allows for maxim comfort whether playing open chords or soloing past the 12th fret, it is also a Satin finished neck to allow for maximum grip and no slipping whatever the playing conditions.


        The American Special Telecaster comes fitted as standard with Fenders most popular pickup set, The Texas Special pickups are renowned for their fantastic Bluesy Twang, made specifically to provide a Texas-blues like tone with a rather high output which also makes them suitable for hard/classic rock as well as a variety of genres and styles. The pickups consist of alnico 5 magnets, enamel-coated magnet wire and staggered pole pieces for balanced output across each string, they sing, scream and everything in between with tight bass, focused midrange and crystalline highs. Not only do you get this fantastic set of pickups but the American Special Telecaster is also fitted with Fenders grease bucket tone circuit which rolls of the high end without putting more emphasis on the bass when rolling down your tone controls, this prevents your tone form becoming muddy and keeps it sparkling and clear as a telecaster should be.
