Strong and dense, Malaysian blackwood has plenty of sustain, perfect for soaring lead lines and raucous rhythm work.
For authentic, vintage-inspired tone, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is loaded with two JP-90 single-coil pickups. Topped by 22 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5 inch-radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining flat enough for wide bends. The custom string-through-body short-plate Tele bridge features compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation along the entire length of the neck.
With its authentic, original-era sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is a rare, inspiring example of Fender's world-class craftsmanship.
