Fender Limited Edition Cabronita Telecaster 2019 Lake Placid Blue
Weight: 7.68 lbs / 3490 grams
If the Telecaster was created in an alternate universe, this might be the outcome. The Fender Cabronita is a US-made Tele, re-skinned in a glamorous finish with natural back and sides, as well as housing a pair of famous TV Jones Classic pickups. These are limited edition so you'd better snap one up before they're off the shelves!
Using classic Fender wood appointments, the Cabronita is made of an alder body and silky smooth deep 'C' shape maple neck. The gorgeous rosewood fingerboard contains tall, thin frets. All of this results in an incredibly easy-to-play package with a hint of vintage feel. As you'd expect from a US-made Fender, the construction quality is of the highest class. It's sure to last a lifetime of practice and gigging.
This is where the Cabronita comes into its own. In stark contrast to the standard American Tele's single coils, the Cabronita is equipped with two TV Jones Classic humbucker pickups. Keeping within the realms of '60s tone, Classics produce superb clarity while retaining the warmth of low output windings.
The Cabronita is hard as nails. Although you might now want to put that to the test considering the limited edition finish! Nevertheless, you'll have no problems with intonation or tuning stability thanks to a combination of Fender's Classic Gear tuners, a bone nut and rock steady fixed bridge.
