2017 Fender American Elite Telecaster Thinline

$1,450.00

Description

Mystic Ice Blue finish! Brand new model and one fine Tele. Latest version of the revolutionary Tele Thinline, first marketed in 1969. The original idea was to produce a more lightweight Tele, while retaining the guitar’s signature tone. This latest version, called the Elite Tele Thinline does that and more. This model features Fender’s new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, which sound like a Tele, without any of the harshness associated with the vintage pickups. They are also very compatible with virtually any OD or distortion pedal, again, without harshness. They sound as great clean as they do with loads of gain, sort of the perfect modern Tele tone. You’ll also notice a different type of bridge on this guitar. The new Elite Suspension Bridge features three intonatable brass saddles is a unique design engineered specifically for this guitar. A screwless mount increases the transfer of energy to ensure better sustain and a more lively response. It features a comfortable compound radius (9.5”-14”). Not just the fretboard is compound. While it’s a modern “C”-shape at the nut, it morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D” profile at the heel. The heel, by the way, is updated as well, making it easier to play in the upper register. Tuners are short-post locking type and feature a greater break angle at the bone nut, buzz-free. They’ve also borrowed the idea for a truss rod wheel at the butt neck, which is my personal favorite. It’s easy and you can keep tension on the neck while you adjust. Other features include a bound ash body (very classy!), black chrome headstock logo, Schaller strap locks, and large pearloid fret markers. Lastly, it comes in a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks and includes a certificate of authenticity. Why pay $1999 for a new one when this one is “as new” with zero flaws, PLUS a pro set up, for way less. $1450. Includes Elite case with certificate, etc.
