Overview

A New Breed Of Telecaster

The Fender Telecaster is one of the most loved, well recognized and original electric guitars ever put together. A design so good, thats it has barely changed formula in over 50 years of production! The brand new Elite line represents the very best of what Fender can do, taking the classic design and upgrading it with enough features to have guitarists drolling all over the stage floor.

One of Fenders latest approaches to the classic Telecaster, the Thinline Elite offers players an incredible amount of playability, versatility and modern feature appointments while presenting them all in a lightweight, semi-hollowbody design.

What Fender Themselves Have to Say On The New Elite Thinlines

Infusing the esteemed semi-hollow design with Fender’s latest innovations, the American Elite Telecaster Thinline is for the 21st-century guitarist who embraces innovation in both instrument design and their own playing. Genuine and amazingly flexible Thinline tone, our latest technologies and classic Fender style work in harmony to create an easy-playing instrument you won’t want to put down.

The foundation of the American Elite Series sound, the new fourth generation Noiseless pickups, combine authentic, vintage-style sound with hum-free performance. The pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, they generate glistening cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power. The new Elite Suspension Bridge with three intonatable brass saddles is a unique design engineered specifically for the Thinline Telecaster a screwless mount increases the vibration transfer, driving the top for nearly endless sustain and lively response. Engineered for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. New locking short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the synthetic bone nut for buzz-free performances. The truss rod wheel is positioned at the butt end of the neck for easy accessibility when adjusting neck relief.

Fender is renowned for head-turning style, and this guitar is no different from the lightweight, highly resonant Thinline semi-hollowbody design to the black chrome headstock logo and large pearloid fret markers this instrument will dazzle the audience with elegant style. The American Elite Telecaster is a bold new addition to the Fender family tree, a top-notch performer that can handle whatever music you might you throw at it. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument.

Staff in the shop are absolutely brilliant
The chap that served us was brilliant. He knew so much about the guitars and really helpful. We weren't buying the most expensive guitar in the shop but we were treated like we were. We also used the price match guarantee. Honestly couldn't be happier.
