Brad Paisley is a modern country superstar. Carrying the torch for traditional music from the southern states, the Nashville legend has carved his signature sound with a Fender Telecaster - just like many of his country contemporaries.
Fender collaborated with Paisley to produce a signature Fender Road Worn Tele model that really makes a statement with its silver sparkle finish and Paisley-themed pickguard. Featuring a worn nitro finish that looks like it's just come off tour, this guitar has a "broken in" feel that will age beautifully in the years to come.
Spruce/Paulownia/ Spruce Body
The Fender Brad Paisley Road Worn Telecaster has a unique body construction that combines Spruce with Paulownia. Incredibly lightweight, this unconventional tonewood blend gives the guitar acoustic-like resonance with plenty of projection even when unplugged.
A customary bolt-on Maple neck contributes to the Brad Paisley Tele's spanky character, allowing notes to really pop with plenty of attack. Carved to an enhanced "V" profile, the Fender Brad Paisley Telecaster is comfortable to play and offers optimal support for your thumb for easy chording, while flattening out in the upper register for soloing.
A custom Brad Paisley vintage-style single-coil in the bridge delivers all of the twang you could ever need, while the Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele pickup in the neck has a much rounder character. If you're a Paisley super-fan, these pickups really capture his distinctive tone and sound great clean or with tasteful overdrive.
