The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌ SOLD ❌ Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Tangerine, 2005


Instrument Categories: , , ,

Fender’s American Deluxe Telecaster series was built from 1998 to 2016, with upgrades for 2004 and 2010 model years and was replaced by the Elite series.

Here we’re looking at a Fender American Deluxe Telecaster from the 2005 model year, featuring a lovely slightly metallic Tangerine finish on an Alder body, maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard sporting Abalone position markers. A pearlescent pickguard sets off the finish very nicely. As a bonus, the back has a Strat-style comfort contour.   This guitar was built in Corona, California. 

For hardware, it’s all chrome plated. There are staggered tuning gears, an advanced six-saddle bridge, and SCN (Samarium Cobalt Noiseless) pickups paired with the S-1 switching system. The S-1 is built into the volume pot as a center push switch, and when the three-way pickup selector is in the middle position, provides either parallel or series connections for the two pickups.

This guitar is in great shape, and while it has clearly been played given the light to moderate fret wear, it’s been very well cared for and not abused.

The original Fender shaped hard shell case is included.
