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 Rosewood Fingerboard
The guitars Maple neck contributes some tightness and cut the overall tonality, creating an edge of sizzle in the highs and bright characteristics. The Rosewood fingerboard helps to fur up the Maples tone, giving it a little warmth and sweetness to produce sparkling highs and thick lows. The Maple/Rosewood combination creates an open mid-range with a snappy attack, perfect for playing leads and chords.
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.
