OVERVIEW

Ground-breaking pickups and all the pro features.

In the late ‘60s and early ‘70s guitarists wanted hum-free tone based on the sound of an amp about to blow up. You asked—so we listened and created the Telecaster Deluxe in 1973. Today’s version, the American Professional Telecaster Deluxe ShawBucker, brings modern, player- oriented features to the stage and studio, and can still make an amp sizzle without breaking a sweat.

With its flexible sound and vintage-voiced pickups, the Telecaster Deluxe adds a touch of girth to the traditional Telecaster twang and bite. From pop and punk to the most brutal modern metal, the Telecaster Deluxe has powered countless recordings and infinite stages, creating the music we love.

The pair of warm, rich-sounding ShawBucker humbucking pickups are voiced specifically for each position, producing powerful, nuanced tones with original Fender sonic DNA. Retain high end clarity when adjusting the volume controls, thanks to the new treble-bleed tone circuit that lets your tone shine through in all its glory. The new modern “Deep C”-shaped neck profile feels just right in your hand while the narrow-tall frets make it easy to bend strings accurately and play perfectly intonated chords.

The best of yesterday and today, the American Professional Telecaster Deluxe ShawBucker is the latest form of electric inspiration from Fender. Step up and stake your claim to a legend.

Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Deluxe Shawbucker Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

First the guitar is stunning - love the color Sonic Gray. Sometimes it looks blue sometimes it looks gray - great new color by Fender. The new neck and frets took a couple of days getting used to them but I really enjoy playing the guitar now. You will notice the neck getting thicker as you go up the neck which might turn off some players but I enjoy it. The Shawbuckers are a welcomed addition as they give some nice fat sounds, you can get anything you want out of the bridge. The neck I think is a little dark, sounds like it needs a bit more on the tone control, take it to 11 and it would be bright enough but you can adjust your amp accordingly. Brighter amps I think the guitar sounds a bit better, if you have a darker amp you might not appreciate the guitar as much. I would def pick up one of these again without hesitation.

    Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Deluxe Shawbucker Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    Boy am I glad I stuck with this one! When I first got it out of the box I thought the deeper neck profile and gloss fretboard were going to spoil this otherwise magnificent guitar for me.
    Something told me to persevere however and so even though I am 70 with arthritis and back problems and without the prospect of 20 years ahead of me in which to break in this dude, I managed to resist my normal GAS behaviour which would have seen me either trading or selling on the guitar in a matter of days.
    I could go into all sorts of nerdy detail because I have made a lifetime's labour of love out of playing and studying the Telecaster. I shall leave that to other reviewers. Suffice to say that over the past 60 years I have owned and played all manner of Teles starting with my first true love - a Nocaster borrowed for brief periods in 1958 from an American friend who returned to the States with said guitar. Since then I have been on a quest to duplicate that Nocaster plus tweed Deluxe experience without coughing up thousands of currency items. It's been an enjoyable ride encompassing hundreds and hundreds of varying Fenders.
    Well that quest is ending even as I write this . . . each day I fall in love a little more with my beautiful new Telecaster Deluxe as I learn to love the tones of Shawbuckers and return to Telecaster first principles I.e. it is the playing around and in spite of the guitar's perceived idiosyncrasies that will deliver all the magic locked up in Leo Fender's regal yet unassuming masterpiece. I have kept faith with Fender. This new Tele Deluxe with Shawbuckers keeps faith with its aficionados in return. At 70 years of age I am still learning. What more could one ask for? Thank you for reading this far. Happy trails . . .

    Comments about Fender American Professional Telecaster Deluxe Shawbucker Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

    Best guitar I ever owned.It has everything; from comfort,clarity,noiseless pickups, and solid construction. Able to get those gritty sounds without losing tone. I was nervous after reading reviews on the neck but I find it a perfect fit for me. More than pleased.
