Semi-Hollow Alder Body

The Telecaster’s semi-hollow construction not only makes the guitar lighter, but provides soothingly warm overtones to the traditional tele sound, giving it plenty of grind. The body is crafted from Alder to deliver a strong, full-bodied sound with beefy mids and excellent lows. The wood offers sizzling highs with an incredible sustain, combined with the semi-hollow design produces an improved tele sound.

Maple Neck and Fingerboard

The Maple neck and fingerboard combination adds tightness and cut to the guitars overall tone, delivering sizzling highs and firm lows. The two piece of Maple work together to produce bright characteristics with a snappy attack in the midrange. When the string are hit hard, the wood offers a punchy tones, with a slight gnarly edge to it, but can provide excellent clarity with light to medium playing.

Vintage Noiseless Tele Pickups

The Telecaster features a pair of vintage noiseless tele pickups in the neck and bridge positions, to provide an incredibly versatile guitar. The highly articulate vintage noiseless pickups offer rich tones with a balanced string response to create the classic twang of a telecaster, with all the definition it needs. The four way switching adds extra dimensions to the guitars tone, with four different pickup combinations to choose from. When flicked to the fourth position, the two pickups are combined into a series, producing a hotter output for a punchier midrange.

String Thru Construction

The Deluxe Telecaster Thinline incorporates a string-thru body construction to provide improved tonality and sustain by transferring vibrations and resonance from the string to the body. The modern six saddle bridge uses block saddles to provide incredible sustain and string stability, giving the guitar a thicker tone that compliments the famous telecaster twang.

The History of the Telecaster

The rich history of Fender guitars begins with the Telecaster. An indispensable instrument, the Telecaster was the world's first successful solid-body electric guitar. Perfected after two years of development - and a name change or two - the Telecaster debuted in February 1951 and began its steady ascent towards the stage and studio. Ingeniously engineered with the ability to be heard both loud and clear, it was a marvel of simple design elegance and workhorse functionality. It is perhaps fitting testimony to its essential original rightness that the Telecaster design has hardly changed ever since.
