Fender Chris Shiflett Telecaster

Chris Shiflett's abiding love for Fender Telecasters and for huge humbucking sound now comes together in one instrument with his name on it -- the Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe. Chris Shiflett has his feet firmly planted in two worlds -- with impeccable punk/hard rock credentials as longtime guitarist in the Foo Fighters, and with an authentic love for country, as heard in side project Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants.

Affordable and modeled closely on Shiflett's favorite '72 Tele Deluxe, it features a roaring pair of custom-designed high-output humbucking pickups, a 12-inch radius rosewood fingerboard for easy bends with low action, custom-stenciled hard-shell case, and Shiflett's signature on the headstock. Tour bus, platinum records and the adulation of millions not included.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (11 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "What a value"
Overall: I'm a real fan of the Telecaster but sometimes I am in need of more than what the single coil pick-ups have to offer. I thought about a Blacktop model with the dual humbuckers and then saw this model.At a price point of $699.00 with a hardshell case it grabbed my attention,then I looked further into it and really saw more of what I liked. I love the big headstock,white with perloid pick-guard and humbuckers. When I received the guitar and took it out of the case it was in need of a set-up as the action was high however after that the guitar played like butter. I can't say I own a gauge or anything like that after 45 years I simply set it to where I like it if it has a bit of a buzz well no big deal. The controls are classic of this model 2 tone and 2 volume controls along with a 3-way toggle for the pick-up selection. Remember when this model came out it was supposed to be Fender's answer to the Les Paul. The bullet truss rod I like a lot. The tone of this guitar is big, pick-ups are not just generic pick-ups but really good tone along with a nice degree of hot to them. Unless your one of those guys who rips pick-ups out of a guitar for no reason believe me these pick-ups are beyond good. The tone of the neck pick-up is nice and clean but with some heat the bridge pick-up is as expected a cranking distorted model. The nice part about this guitar is it is really versatile. It would be good for country,blues,R&B, soul and of course your classic rock and even grunge stuff. Best Part I love that it is a signature model from Chris Shiflett signed on the headstock and hardshell case At $699.00 with case this may be one of the best values out there today.
Style of Music: Classic R&B,Soul Blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "The Shiflett tele delux is incredible "
Overall: First off let me say I purchased this guitar because of its obscurity in the Fender stable of guitars. No it is not your run of the mill tele. If you're looking for that distinctive telecaster sound purchase a different tele. With the dual humbuckers this thing is an overdrive monster. This is comparable to my Les Paul when played through my fender deluxe amp. I absolutely love this guitar for what it is....a rock n roll fender Frankenstein. Lastly the strat headstock is so much more secure to hang on a hanger. I know it's trivial but I hate the skinny tele headstock for hanging.
Style of Music: Mostly play rock but dabble in country and blues.
