Fender / American Deluxe Telecaster / 2004 / Montego Black / Guitar For Sale

This American Deluxe Tele looks the part with its Montego Black finish, gold guard and bound body. It sounds the part too with it's noiseless pick-ups and S1 switching system.


The American Deluxe Telecaster takes the classic Tele template and adds some more modern appointments such as Fender's Noiseless pickups, which deliver the iconic Telecaster twang without the hum, the S-1 switching system which adds some additional tonal variation by enabling the middle position (both pick-ups) to be either wired in parallel or series, a 22 fret compound radius neck and some contouring on the back of the body (like on the original 70's Tele Deluxe) to give a more comfortable playing experience.


This particular example dates to 2004 (the first year of manufacture for this model) and is in excellent overall condition with just a few light surface scratches on the back of the guitar being the only thing that prevents it from being described as mint.


The neck has a modern C profile and a compound radius making it a very comfortable neck to play. It also has an additional 22nd fret and is topped off with abalone inlays which give it a classy look. Sonically the N3 Noiseless single coils pick-ups are firmly in classic Tele territory but without any hum. Maybe it's the lack of hum that make them sound a little bit more crystal clear when played clean than vintage style Tele pick-ups? Add a bit of overdrive and they can rock like the best Teles. This is a versatile guitar that delivers well in most styles.


If you're looking for an affordable US made modern Tele that will cover most tonal bases and has a modern playing feel, then look no further.


Comes with a Gator hardshell case.
