Now's the Time to Step into Pro-grade Tele Tone!Time to get serious about your tone tools. Start with the very thing you use to express yourself: the kazoo. Just kidding. Get down to serious business, with Fender's American Deluxe Ash Telecaster. When you think of a studio- and stage-ready Tele, you think of what this guitar has onboard: a vintage-style neck with a "U" profile; a beautifully finished ash body; first-class hardware, and jaw-dropping Noisless N3 Tele pickups (complete with Fender's ultra-cool S-1 switching system). You even get a tour-tested molded SKB case. This is a pro-grade guitar that's built for the best. Now's the perfect time to get it!
You know and love this icon of a solidbody electric guitar; from Nashville to New York City to New Orleans to Nor Cal (and everywhere in-between), axe-slingers all over the place swear by the Tele. Why? Start with the history: over a half-century after the first Telecaster flew out of Fullerton, California, this solidbody retains essentially the same design. That's doing it right the first time! The classic pickup arrangement, easy switching, comfortable neck shape, and time-tested hardware combine to give you exactly what you want out of an electric guitar, no matter what kind of music you play.
Springsteen plays one. So does Tom Petty. And Andy Summers from the Police. Want to talk twang? Look no further than the Teles strapped to Merle Haggard or the legendary James Burton. Keith Richards brought dozens of rock's most memorable licks to life on a Tele, and Joe Strummer used his Telecaster to blend punk's snarl with smart songcraft. Don't forget Roy Buchanan and Albert Collins; their Teles helped to define electric blues. And, who can forget all those amazing R&B records Steve Cropper put his Telecaster magic on? We're just scratching the surface here, folks... you simply can't go wrong when you strap on a Tele!
