Solidbody Electric Guitar with Alder Body, Maple Neck, Maple Fingerboard, and 2 Single-coil Pickups - Tobacco Burst




Fender's American Elite Telecaster solidbody electric guitar is a great instrument for pickers who love the classic platform but need a wider palette of tones. You'll get the familiar twang and cut Teles are known for, but without the 60-cycle hum, thanks to a pair of fourth-generation Fender Noiseless single-coil pickups. An S-1 switch adds new pickup voicings to the American Elite Tele. And features like a 9.5"-14" compound-radius fretboard make these guitars effortless to play. The Fender American Elite Telecaster is the future of one of the most popular workhorse guitars ever.

Fender American Elite Telecaster Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • Upgraded American Telecaster
  • 4th-generation Fender Noiseless pickups
  • S-1 switch offers more sonic options
  • Ideal 9.5"-14" compound-radius fretboard
  • Comfort belly and arm contours
  • Includes strap locks and adjustment wrenches

Familiar tones with a twist

Onboard the American Elite Telecaster is a duo of Fender's fourth-generation Noiseless single-coil pickups. These improved designs deliver the Telecaster's familiar punch and twang. But the Noiseless circuitry eliminates unwanted signal noise and hum, making the guitar ideal for live performance and touring. The S-1 switch, imbedded in the volume knob, adds new pickup combinations for additional Tele tones. And the alder and maple construction is a tried-and-true combination that has proven itself over decades.

Neck designed with you in mind

Fender has been known for their iconic neck profiles since their beginning. The American Elite Telecaster continues the tradition with a comfortable contour that's not too thin, not too wide. The 9.5"-14" compound fretboard radius ensures comfort while chording, and it flattens out up high for unimpeded string bending and vibrato. And the neck's rolled fretboard edges feel like a well-worn guitar as soon as you open the case.

Comfort contours

An addition you're sure to appreciate is the belly and arm comfort contours on the body of the American Elite Telecaster. The guitar will sit optimally and offer natural strumming movement when you're performing, while keeping with the standard Telecaster body shape. And putting the S-1 switch in the volume knob ensures the American Elite Tele looks and functions just like your favorite teles from the past.

What Fender Says...

Packed with a baker's dozen of innovations, the American Elite Telecaster is the original solidbody electric guitar reimagined for modern players who want bleeding-edge performance with timeless visual style. The future of workhorse guitar design, this Tele® guitar's stunning style, easy playing feel and flexible sound that meets any musical need, was made to tear it up on stage or in the studio.

All-New American Elite Neck

Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern "C"-shape at the nut, the rear of the neck morphs along the length of the neck to a modern "D"-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of ergonomic support.

All-New 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups

With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.

All-New American Elite Neck Heel

For improved upper register access and elegantly functional modern style, the American Elite Series' new cutaway neck heel blends into the asymmetrical neck volute for comfortably enhanced playing feel.

New Double Action Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel

The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

Locking Tuning Machines With All Short Posts

Enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability from the new locking short post tuning machines. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.

S-1™ Switch

The S-1 switch on this model activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.
