Fender 2018 Limited Edition American Professional Telecaster with Shawbucker


Fender is guided by one clear, simple directive:
make life better for musicians. While the original
Telecaster certainly did that (and then some), we
weren’t content to rest on our laurels. Our team
of mad scientists examined every component
in near-microscopic detail. If we were able
to improve it with a new design or modern
materials we did; if it didn’t need improvement,
we left it alone. When the wood chips and solder
fumes settled, what was left was the American
Professional Telecaster—everything you need to
play your best.
Developed by vintage pickup master Tim Shaw,
the brand-new V-Mod single-coil pickup, mixing
alnico magnet types, and Shawbucker 1T are
voiced specifically for each position, to produce
powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender
sonic DNA. The newly redesigned Telecaster
bridge sports three compensated brass barrel
saddles for the perfect combination of vintage
style with modern feel and performance. Retain
high end clarity when adjusting the volume
controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone
circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its
glory. The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck
profile feels just right in your hand while the
narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings
accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.
The best of yesterday and today, the American
Professional Telecaster is the latest form of
electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and
stake your claim to a legend.
