Fender’s American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe puts a new spin on the hugely popular model, with upgrades aimed at the professional player. The iconic Tele Deluxe styling remains, but it benefits from a contoured neck heel and a redesigned 3-saddle bridge, which makes it easier than ever to get a clean setup with perfect intonation. Tim Shaw V-Mod II Double Tap humbuckers provide the fat sound you would expect from a Tele Deluxe, but they pull the wool off the top end, yielding a stunning hi-fi tone. The American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe also sports a satisfying Deep-C profile neck with Fender’s new “Super-Natural” satin finish. Guitarists at Music Experience agree this may be the most comfortable Fender neck yet! Classic and contemporary, the Fender American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe is a world-class axe primed to dominate the studio and the stage.

Upgraded pickups promote clarity

For the American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe, Fender's pickup guru, Tim Shaw, created a new breed of V-Mod humbucking pickups. Fittingly dubbed the V-Mod II Double Tap pickups, they deliver a hearty humbucking punch with enhanced clarity and articulation. The newest version of the American Professional also has an upgraded bridge pickup in the form of a Double Tap humbucker. Running it wide open yields a punchy tone with plenty of character. With the Push-Push tone knob, you can get realistic single-coil sounds. Whether you're keeping it clean or getting gritty, the Fender American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe will sound right at home.

The new standard for professional instruments

After the wild success of the original American Professional Stratocaster, Fender's team of designers dedicated themselves to improving on the design. The resulting instrument, the American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe, features several improvements and upgrades that push the classic design to new heights. V-Mod II Double Tap humbuckers give you signature ‘bucker heft with a tasty top-end sparkle. The upgraded “cut” 3-saddle top-load/string-through bridge has a classic look with enhanced flexibility for setting individual string tension to achieve perfect intonation. Factor in the all-new "Super-Natural" neck finish, and the Fender American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe sets the tone for what a professional-level instrument should look, sound, and feel like.

Custom Shop-influenced neck

The Deep "C" neck profile that you'll find on the Fender American Professional II Telecaster Deluxe solidbody electric guitar is a slight upgrade from the Fender American neck players have been in love with for years. By adding a touch more roundness to the back contour, the Deep-C carve fills your hand perfectly while never inhibiting your technique. For added playing comfort, the back of the neck is finished in Fender's "Super-Natural" satin finish, which feels fast and inviting. Your fingers will immediately notice how much control they have on the fretboard's Narrow Tall frets. For good reason, this fret wire is the most requested size at the Fender Custom Shop.

V-Mod II Double Tap™ Humbucking Pickups

V-Mod II Double Tap™ pickups are voiced specifically for each position, delivering full, punchy humbucking tones that can be split with the performance friendly push-push tone controls for robust single-coil sounds.

New Sculpted Neck Heel

The rounded neck heel and beveled neck-plate improve access to the upper register and make leads easy and comfortable.

Top-Load/String-Through Saddle "Cut" Tele Bridge

The new Telecaster Deluxe bridge sports a svelte “cut” design with compensated brass barrel saddles for comfort, accurate intonation and vintage-informed tone. Strings can be top-loaded for reduced tension, resulting in a mellower twang and springy attack that’s perfect for rock n roll.

Deep "C" Neck Profile With Rolled Fingerboard Edges

Delivering both comfort and speed, the American Professional II Deep “C” neck profile is slim at the nut and fills out gradually as it approaches the neck joint to create a natural feel that’s perfect for chording and single note playing alike. The hand-rolled fingerboard edges and Super-Natural satin finish provide a supremely comfortable feel.

Special Electronics

Two performance friendly push-push tone controls activate the unique Double Tap™ humbucking pickups, unlocking single-coil tones without any volume loss, making it easy to adjust your sound mid-performance.
