Fender American Professional Telecaster Natural


Fender is guided by one clear, simple directive:
make life better for musicians. While the original
Telecaster certainly did that (and then some), we
weren’t content to rest on our laurels. Our team
of mad scientists examined every component
in near-microscopic detail. If we were able
to improve it with a new design or modern
materials we did; if it didn’t need improvement,
we left it alone. When the wood chips and solder
fumes settled, what was left was the American
Professional Telecaster—everything you need to
play your best.
Developed by vintage pickup master Tim Shaw,
the brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickups are
voiced specifically for each position, mixing alnico
magnet types to produce powerful, nuanced
tones with original Fender sonic DNA. The
newly redesigned Telecaster bridge sports three
compensated brass barrel saddles for the perfect
combination of vintage style with modern feel
and performance. Retain high end clarity when
adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new
treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine
through in all its glory. The new modern “Deep C”-
shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand
while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend
strings accurately and play perfectly intonated
The best of yesterday and today, the American
Professional Telecaster is the latest form of
electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and
stake your claim to a legend.
