Chevron Right Icon

A retro-flavored signature model with contemporary twists for inspired tone and style.

The Fender limited-edition Raphael Saadiq Telecaster melds vintage design with modern appointments for inspired playability and diverse tones. Designed with input from Grammy-winning artist Raphael Saadiq, this signature Telecaster sports custom single-coil Tele pickups to conjure up everything from sparkling cleans to raunchy distortion. With premium features like an ash body, maple neck and rosewood fingerboard, the Saadiq Telecaster feels fast and comfortable. Visually, it makes a statement with a gloss polyurethane finish, distinctive binding and custom graphic pickguard. Overall, this special-edition Telecaster provides exceptional tone and smooth playability with eye-catching retro-inspired style.

Built for Comfort and Playability

An easy-playing maple neck with vintage-style hardware makes this signature Telecaster feel instantly familiar. The slim, fast '59 C-shape neck and 9.5" fingerboard radius provide smooth, comfortable fretting. Vintage tall frets allow expressive note bending and vibrato techniques. Overall, the vintage appointments and premium build quality provide exceptional playability.

Dial In Vintage Tone and Modern Edge With Custom Pickups

Equipped with custom Raphael Saadiq single-coil Tele pickups, this signature model can produce a diverse range of tones. The open, airy quality of the pickups makes them ideal for shimmering cleans and subtle nuance. Dig in and you'll get tones with bite and attitude. Roll back the volume and tone controls for warmer vintage tones or crank them for aggressive edge. From buttery smooth to raw and biting, these custom pickups give you tonal versatility.

Make an Entrance With the Striking Looks

One glimpse at the Raphael Saadiq Telecaster tells you this is no ordinary Tele. The gloss polyurethane finish in Dark Red Metallic gleams under stage lights. Custom binding along the body and neck provides a classy touch. The unique graphic pickguard makes a bold style statement. Topped off with knurled control knobs, vintage-style hardware and Raphael's signature on the headstock, this Tele is a stunner packed with visual appeal.

Keep It Safe With a Deluxe Hardshell Case

The limited-edition Saadiq Telecaster includes a deluxe hardshell case to protect your investment. The plush interior cradles the guitar to prevent dings, dents and scratches. Sturdy latches and exterior padding provide additional shielding. With this premium case, you can transport your Telecaster anywhere with confidence.
