An updated classic with a premium top.

Combining the already flexible and compellingly genuine tone of a Telecaster Thinline with Fender's 4th-Generation Noiseless pickups, this limited-edition American Elite guitar is a near-perfect blend of classic design and innovative tech. Featuring the new Elite Suspension bridge, designed especially for the Thinline Tele to optimize sustain and dynamic response, you get a full range of tone from crystalline, glistening cleans to beefy, thick overdriven power. A comfortable, fast compound radius fingerboard on a modern compound profile neck suits virtually any playing style and the locking short-post tuning machines eliminate any potential buzz at the nut, for clean performance, wherever you are on the nick. With looks as tunes as its performance, this is an instrument that will turn the heads, and hold the ears, of any audience.

  • Gloss-finish solid ash body with quilted maple top
  • 25.5" scale maple on maple neck with 22-fret, compound 9.5–14"-radius fingerboard
  • Fender 4th Generation Noiseless pickups, 3-way pickup selector
  • Fender Elite Suspension bridge, locking Fender tuners
