Fender Limited Edition American Professional Telecaster in Daphne Blue

Description

The American Professional Tele sets the bar for Fender’s earliest solid-body design. It has the classic look and distinctly twangy sound that’s defined countless records since the ‘50s. For this limited edition model, Fender have combined Tim Shaw-designed V-mod single coils with a beautiful roasted maple neck and fingerboard combo – a truly rare, standout instrument.

Construction

The alder body provides a classic balanced tone with a slight midrange emphasis. This provides a brilliant tonal blank canvas to sculpt your own sound with, particularly well-complemented by the V-mod pickups.

Make no mistake, the deep C roasted Maple neck and matching fretboard is the headline feature here. It’s not often you see roasted woods on Fender guitars - a truly luxurious appointment. This wood is lauded for its emphasised tonal attack, giving the Alder sound a real fiery edge.

Electronics & Hardware

The V-mod pickups have each been voiced perfectly for each position in the guitar. V-Mod pickups are a combination of Alnico magnet types, calibrated for an optimal tonal response. They can produce vintage twang and bright modern clarity without breaking a sweat.

The hardware strikes the perfect balance between modern tone machine and old-school class. The 3-saddle bridge ensures that the tonewoods are able to sing just like the Teles of old, while the tuners are refined and precise – a real workhorse.
