When Fender set out to make a modern update of its iconic Telecaster, they did so with a constant focus on what today's players want. With that in mind, the Fender American Deluxe Ash Telecaster was born, complete with a player-centric neck, comfortable ash body, and efficient Noiseless pickups.
A Classic, Made Contemporary Vintage Telecasters are beloved guitars, but players' tastes have changed over time and those trends are reflected in the American Deluxe Ash Telecaster. The already light ash body sports a belly cut to offer even more back relief to the journeyman player.
The American Deluxe Tele's maple neck is cut in a modern "C" profile, which slightly flattens the back of the neck. A maple compound-radius fretboard caps the neck and flattens out toward the high frets, for an ideal surface whether you're playing leads or rhythm chords.
Noiseless N3 Pickups: Clear and CleanIn keeping with the update theme of the American Deluxe Ash Telecaster, Fender has loaded this model with Noiseless N3 pickups in the bridge and neck positions. Designed by Fender to reduce the pesky hum commonly associated with single-coil pickups, the N3s use Alnico 5 magnets to preserve that single-coil sound and bright high-end Telecasters are known for. The result is a pickup that sounds clean and can handle a range of styles from across all decades.
Functional and Fashionable Hardware UpgradesThe details like hardware and controls were not overlooked on the American Deluxe Ash Telecaster. The guitar's six-saddle bridge runs the strings through the body for added stability and natural resonance. Locking tuning machines keep you in tune, a Schaller Strap Lock system keeps your Tele from flying into the crowds, and chrome knurled control knobs keep the axe looking sharp.
