Fender 2017 LE Exotic Mahogany Tele

A departure from their traditional tone wood choices, the Fender 2017 Limited Edition American Elite Mahogany Tele Thinline tempers the traditional Tele bite with the rich sound and warm look of mahogany. Over the course of its journey from the forest floor to the player's hands, this body wood has weathered natural disasters, acquiring more than a little mojo along the way.

As a manufacturer Fender considers themselves stewards of the environment -- they make sure great wood gets turned into premium Fender instruments and into the hands of players. Not only is Fender dedicated to conscientious sourcing of tone wood to craft their instruments, they're constantly searching for alternate woods and materials, including rescuing wood that otherwise may have languished on the forest floor.

The 2017 Limited Edition American Elite Mahogany Tele Thinline is loaded with a single 4th Gen Noiseless single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup and a fat-sounding ShawBucker Special Wind humbucking neck pickup (coil-splittable via the S-1 switch) for noise-free, high-output tone. The Elite Suspension Bridge is a unique design; a screwless mount increases the vibration transfer, driving the top for nearly endless sustain and lively response. The compound-profile neck sports a 9.5"-14" compound-radius maple fingerboard, ideal for most playing styles, and topped by 22 medium jumbo frets for a familiar feel.

With its one-of-a-kind sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition American Elite Mahogany Tele Thinline is a rare, inspiring example of Fender's craftsmanship.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
