Fender Limited Edition American Professional Mahogany Telecaster Deluxe Shawbucker


Special body wood and powerful electronics.

As a manufacturer Fender strive to make sure great wood gets turned into premium Fender instruments and into the hands of players. Not only are they dedicated to conscientious sourcing of tone wood to craft their instruments, they’re constantly searching for alternate woods and materials, including rescuing wood that otherwise may have languished on the forest floor.

A departure from Fender’s traditional tone wood choices, the 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Mahogany Tele Deluxe ShawBucker tempers the traditional Tele bite with the rich sound and warm look of mahogany. Over the course of its journey from the forest floor to the player’s hands, this body wood has weathered natural disasters, acquiring more than a little mojo along the way.

The 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Mahogany Tele Deluxe ShawBucker is loaded with a pair of fat-sounding ShawBucker humbucking pickups. Voiced specifically for each position, the ShawBucker pickups add a new dimension of depth to the guitar’s voice. Topped by 22 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5 in.-radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining fat enough for wide bends.

With its fat, high-output sound and slick style, the 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Mahogany Tele Deluxe ShawBucker is a rare, inspiring example of Fender’s craftsmanship. Includes hardshell case.
