Updated with a select alder body, noiseless pickups and soft C shape neck.

The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar has a new compound-radius fretboard for effortless string bending anywhere along the neck. The staggered locking tuners improve tuning stability for stunt guitarists who like to bend behind the nut. New N3 noiseless pickups provide improved Telecaster tones for snappy bell-like chime with no hum.

Other features include a bound-top body with belly cut, S-1 switching, chromed brass bridge saddles, bound top and a beveled neck heel. Fender includes a new molded Fender-exclusive SKB case with glass-reinforced latches and TSA locks, cable, and strap locks with the American Deluxe Telecaster.

Fender N3 Noiseless pickups
N3 Noiseless pickups deliver the best of yesterday and today, because they deliver landmark vintage Fender tone and response without the hum that can plague single-coil pickups. Using an improved stacked coil-coil design, N3 Noiseless pickups are specially tailored for each Telecaster pickup position. The insulated metal core of each pickup position type differs in thickness and composition for enhanced tone.

Fender has fine-tuned the sized, shape, and wire gauge of the pickup coils to balance the magnetic responsiveness essential to great tone. Fender N3 pickups represent a welcome return to the warmth and clarity of alnico magnets. An Alnico 5 magnet is used in the bridge position, Alnico 2 in the middle position, and Alnico 3 for the neck position.

Features

  • Select alder body with contoured heel and body
  • Comfortable soft C shape neck with choice of maple or rosewood fingerboard
  • Noiseless N3 Tele pickups for vintage sound without hum
  • American Tele bridge with 6 chromed brass saddles

    I have had this guitar for well over two years now and have gigged it more times than i can remember (at least 200 plus). Mine is maple neck and Tungsten colour. The build is top drawer, frets are spotless and compound radius is great feature. I can honestly say its the best guitar I have ever owned, I use it all the time and still looks new.

    I was always a stratocaster player before I bought this, while I still like Strats alot, this is my best guitar and favourite guitar, which is ALOT (20+ Strats, 10+ Tele's, Gibsons les pauls +20, PRS, Ibanez etc.

    Its been well used and thrown about vans, venues, rehearsal rooms and planes. It has never let me down and with the amought of tones avaliable it handles most music styles, I play in a function band 3 times a week so need a guitar to cover most styles. Great for Rock, Blues, Funk, pop, country, folk, etc. You also get a really nice Jazz tone from the neck pickup with the tone control turned down 3/4 way. I think the neck pickup is def strat sounding with tone down slighty but the bridge just twangs like a great Tele should. Middle setting is great for funk and general rhythm type playing. When I need a big tone with lots of gain for rock I pop in the S1 botton and it does a heavier sound really well with plenty bass (I use it with classic rock sounds alot)
    I would say mess around with the tone control, something alot of players dont bother with, but it really can make the guitar have a great deal of usefull tones. I found the case a bit dissappointing, same as the one the standard come with but besides that, worth every penny. It NEVER goes out of tune, mine is set up with 11's.

    I had to send mine back. Beautiful color , which highly resembles the pearl white color on high end vehicles. The one I got had issues with the paint not adhering to the guitar body near the neck pocket. The paint around the binding was a little bit messed up as well.
    These guitars sound great. It's too bad that Fender doesn't have better quality control.

    Comments about Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    My first Tele, I love the look/finish of this. I can't say anything bad about it, I played this in the store before buying, I was sent a perfect working guitar (except the volume knob had to be tightened) which was still better than the one I played in the store. The Tele Twang is something special and this one plays it well.

                  I was disappointed with this guitar after receiving it. The fit and finish was great and it was a lot lighter than my 94 American Standard. I really liked the contoured back. Unfortunately, there was a really bad crackling noise whenever I moved the guitar. I check my cables, pedalboard, and amp to make sure it was a problem with them. I assumed it was a short or something somewhere.

                  Also, aesthetically I though the mint green pickguard against the bright white binding looked terrible. The pickguard should have either been white, or the binding a little more cream colored.

                        great guitar . setup was easy and it played out well. I have to say that the case is a cheap hunk in my opinion. It's plain to see that Fender was not thinking of the musician here. I have a last year model strat, the cases will not stack , they are so different in design. very cheaply made case. expected more for such a nice guitar. but I guess fender can't remember why they came up with their own design...too bad missed the mark fender...

                        This American Deluxe Tele is a bargain. It is in a class with custom guitars in the high price range. Sound is stunning and easy to play with compound radius neck and contoured body. Rosewood neck is fast and N3 pickups are quiet. the no-load tone control makes an audible difference in sound. the locking tuning machines are practical and great -- i can change strings in a jiffy with no slip and little retuning. the white binding is attractive and practical and my cherry burst finish is beautiful. i used the strap they included and the strap-locks (although i did not receive the promised polishing cloth).
                        i was prepared to spend more money but this is all the guitar i will ever need.
                        if you are a tele fan, you will love this guitar.

                            I already have 2 Strats. I bought a 72 re-issue Tele with Humbuckers...Hated it, gave it to my son. I thought I would try one more time for a Tele. I bought this American Deluxe Tele, and it is beautiful and sounds like a Tele. I guess I like the sound of the single coils. I was raised on Buddy Holly! I am not a Fender Snob! I have 3 Gibsons (that I don't play), and 3 Martins (Long live Martin), and a Guild G45 Hank Willims Jr. I do Love this Fender.
