Fender American Professional II Telecaster, Dark Night

Brand:

Instrument Categories: , ,

Another new model has arrived – the Fender American Professional II Telecaster, seen here with Rosewood fingerboard and Dark Night finish! This latest version features rolled edges on a deep C profile neck, narrow-tall frets, heel contour, V-Mod II single-coil Telecaster pickups, and a stock treble bleed circuit to preserve highs when the volume control is turned down. A new bridge design with three compensated brass saddles can be strung either from the top, or the traditional rear-load. There’s also a quiet hint back to the Telecaster’s origins: the body is listed as being Roasted Pine. Leo Fender’s first prototypes and some of his very early production used Pine bodies.

This great guitar is sold with the original molded Fender hard shell case.

Here’s the builder on the Fender American Professional II Telecaster:

“The American Professional II Telecaster® draws from more than seventy years of innovation, inspiration and evolution to meet the demands of today’s working player.

Our popular Deep “C” neck now sports smooth rolled fingerboard edges, a “Super-Natural” satin finish and a newly sculpted neck heel for a supremely comfortable feel and easy access to the upper register. New V-Mod II Telecaster single-coil pickups are more articulate than ever while delivering the twang, snap and snarl that made the Tele famous. The new top-load/string-through bridge with compensated “bullet” saddles is our most comfortable, flexible Tele bridge yet – retaining classic brass-saddle tone and providing excellent intonation and flexible setup options, allowing you to tailor the tension and tone of each string to your liking.

The American Pro II Telecaster delivers instant familiarity and sonic versatility you’ll feel and hear right away, with broad ranging improvements that add up to nothing less than a new standard for professional instruments.”
