In typical Fender fashion, the American Professional Tele features an alder body. This balanced-sounding material ensures robust lows, lively mids and clear highs; the perfect tonal foundation for the Telecaster's crisp-sounding single-coil pickups.
The alder body is joined with a bolt-on rosewood neck, bringing out plenty of low-end roundness and offering a smooth mid-range. A rosewood fingerboard is in-keeping with the dark aesthetic, while providing a silky-smooth touch under the fingers.
Shaped to Fender's Modern Deep "C” profile, the Limited Edition American Professional Telecaster's neck strikes the perfect balance between a contemporary and vintage feel. Narrow tall frets are also a thoughtful inclusion, with the 9.5" fingerboard radius keeping traditionalists happy without alienating modern guitarists. In excellent condition with 1 tiny mark on side of lower bout, plays and sounds fantastic.
V-Mod Single-Coil Pickups
The American Professional Telecaster achieves its authentic Fender sounds from its vintage-voiced V-Mod single-coils. With a vibrant and punchy character, these medium-output pickups excel with clean amp settings but also sound dynamic and potent with overdrive and distortion.
This instrument really is suitable for a wide range of styles, and the Treble Bleed circuit is another cool feature that ensures that the top-end is retained when turning down the volume control.
For keeping the American Professional Telecaster safe on the road, the included Fender case's rugged design will provide great protection.
