Fender American Pro Telecaster - Crimson Red Transparent (Ash) / Rosewood
Crafted in the USA, this American Professional Telecaster stays true to the 50's Tele DNA but adds to that magical formula with a host of upgrades including V-mod single coils, redesigned bridge and innovative treble bleed circuit.
The Fender American Pro Telecaster, here in Crimson Red Transparent with a Rosewood fingerboard and Ash Body, captures everything that was so special about the orginal Teles of the 50's while improving that sacred formula. After examining and upgrading anything that could possibly be tweaked with a new design or material the Fender designers realised they didnt want to try and fix any parts of this cherished design that werent broken, so much of the orginal blueprints remain.
One of the key aspects of this Telecaster model is the impressive V-mod single coil pickups that are design by Tim Shaw, the mastermind behind the innovative Shawbucker pickups, and are tweaked to have a specific voice for each position by blending alnico magnet types for those powerful, nuanced tones will well and truly retaining the original Fender sonic quality.
Among the newly added features for this American Professional Telecaster is the clever treble bleed circuit hidden inside. With this added extra in place you high end will remain well and truely intact when adjusting the volume controls and allow your full tonal spectrum to shine through in all its glory.
A vital component on any guitar is the bridge and this is why Fender chose the newly redesigned Tele bridge that features the traditional three brass barrel saddle design for that combination of vintage tone and modern reliability and performance. Within the recipe for the perfect Telecaster not only do you need a high performance bridge but also an equally high performance neck. Fender have introduced a more modern inspired “ Deep C” shaped neck profile that is designed to sit perfectly in your hand, accompanying this are narrow-tall frets put in place to make it easier to perform string bends accurately and produce perfectly intonated chords.
