Straight from the studios of Music Row in the home of country music -- Nashville, TN -- comes the Fender Deluxe Nashville Tele, a tonally versatile performer with a unique (for a Tele) three-pickup design. A distinctive entry into the Fender family, this Tele growls, snaps and screams with flexible tone that can match any song. With its original Fender style, customized switching and fast, smooth playing feel, this Tele is ready to command any stage from the local honky-tonk to the Grand Ol' Opry.

Vintage Noiseless Pickups

These pickups produce all the brilliant pristine, well-defined tone of vintage single-coil pickups, with no hum.

12" Fretboard Radius

This instrument features a fingerboard radius (the amount of curvature across the width of the fingerboard) that, at 12", is substantially more flattened than both a vintage-style 7.25" radius and a modern 9.5" radius. Feels notably flat even though there's still slight curvature -- great for bending notes without fretting out.

Upgraded Modern Bridges

For superior intonation, sustain and ease of adjustment, Deluxe guitars feature modern bridges with upgraded features. This instrument has a string-through-body bridge with block saddles.

Locking Short-Post Tuning Machines

This instrument features locking short-post tuning machines for increased tuning stability and easy restringing. The increased break angle creates buzz-free performance without annoying read more overtones.

5-Way Pickup Switch

A distinctive three-pickup instrument, the Deluxe Nashville Tele guitar also features five-way pickup switching, delivering a Stratocaster-like control configuration for maximum tonal versatility.

Pearloid Dot Inlays

The fingerboard of this Telecaster guitar is adorned with elegant pearloid dot inlays.

Great guitar. Looks great, plays great and set up well out of the box. With the addition of the vintage noiseless pickups, locking tuners and updated bridge worth every penny. Honestly, plays, feels and sounds as good or better than some American standards.
Musical Background:
43 years playing. Professionally and at home
Musical Style:
Rock, classic rock, blues and some country
