The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

DISCONTINUED!!! Fender American Professional Telecaster Maple Neck


Instrument Categories: , , ,

The Fender American Professional Telecaster is based on one of the most recognized and successful electric guitars in history. Originally designed in late 1951, Leo Fender aimed to make musician’s lives better by producing an instrument that was versatile and durable.

While the design of the Fender American Professional Telecaster is largely the same as the original, Fender wasn’t content to rest on their laurels. The design team went through every fine detail and made adjustments and improvements to make musicians lives better and if it didn’t need changing they left it alone.

The Fender American Professional Telecaster is an evolution of the authentic original model rather than a re-imagined design. Players looking for a versatile and beautiful workhorse electric guitar will surely fall in love with the American Professional Telecaster.

This model is sold with its original hard shell Elite molded case.

Note: While we list a price below, that price is for the 3-Tone Sunburst;the Black finish is a few dollars less. This model is available in a total of ten stock colours and with a Rosewood fingerboard. Contact us for details!

More From The Builder On The Fender American Professional Telecaster:

“V-Mod Telecaster pickups are engineered with a proprietary blend of alnico magnet types. Each pickup is voiced specifically for its position, creating high-output tone with vintage warmth and the crisp, clear sound that made Fender a legend.

Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional “Deep C” neck profile sports more substantial shoulders. The increased mass and altered geometry creates a more natural feel that’s perfect for chord and single-note playing alike.

Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.

The new Telecaster bridge sports three compensated brass barrel saddles for accurate intonation and vintage-informed tone. Combining vintage style with modern feel and performance, the redesigned “ashtray” cover stays out of your way, even when palm-muting.

The treble-bleed circuit maintains the high end when turning down the volume knob to reduce gain, letting your tone shine through, no matter where the instrument’s volume is set.
An original-era Fender design element, a bone nut contributes to superior tone and performance. Many players consider bone nuts to be more “organic” sounding.”
