    The future of workhorse guitar design, this Tele® guitar's stunning style, easy playing feel and flexible sound that meets any musical need, was made to tear it up on stage or in the studio.

    All-New American Elite Neck
    Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern 'C'-shape at the nut, the rear of the neck morphs along the length of the neck to a modern 'D'-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of ergonomic support.

    All-New 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups
    With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, Fender have achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of Fender's pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.

    All-New American Elite Neck Heel
    For improved upper register access and elegantly functional modern style, the American Elite Series' new cutaway neck heel blends into the asymmetrical neck volute for comfortably enhanced playing feel.

    New Double Action Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel
    The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

    Locking Tuning Machines With All Short Posts
    Enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability from the new locking short post tuning machines. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.

    S-1™ Switch
    The S-1 switch on this model activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.
