The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Montego Black, 2009


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster was built from 2004 to 2010 and sat at the top of the Telecaster lineup for that period. The American Deluxe models included a number of modern updates, including medium-jumbo frets, a comfortable six-saddle bridge, and Samarium-Cobalt Noiseless (SCN) pickups with an S1 switch.

The SCN pickup was a Bill Lawrence stacked-coil hum-cancelling design, used for the duration of the American Deluxe production, from 2004 to 2010 but now out of production. Instead of Alnico V, they use Samarium Cobalt magnets with a wider magnetic field.

This example dates to 2009 and is in very good, clean condition with only light wear to the Montego Black finish and light natural tarnish to the plating. Fret wear is negligible to light, and the guitar has a comfortable, light weight body. To my hands, the Modern-C shape neck here is one of Fender’s most comfortable. The gold coloured pickguard nicely sets off the finish.

Sold with its original Fender branded, molded, shaped hard shell case.

Here’s the builder on the Fender American Deluxe Telecaster:

“The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster® guitar is the top-of-the-line American made Tele® guitar for players looking for an alder body guitar with more modern appointments. Like the Ash Telecaster®, this guitar features the S-1 switching system, two Samarium Cobalt Noiseles Tele pickups and a modern chromed stainless steel Tele bridge with chrome-plated solid brass saddles. The Deluxe Tele also has a bound alder body, a modern “C”-shape maple neck with satin polyurethane finish and is available with a maple or rosewood fingerboard, abalone inlays and 22 medium jumbo frets.”
