You are looking at a Fender American Elite Telecaster Electric Guitar 3-Color Sunburst, serial number US16053751. This is the actual guitar you will receive should you decide to purchase. (7 lbs, 7.2 oz.)

Spark your creativity and expression with the Fender American Elite Series instruments! These American Elite instruments were designed for players who demand superior playability, exceptional performance, and unparalleled versatility. The American Elite Series instruments come fully-loaded with an extensive array of new and innovative features, including redesigned ergonomic body contours, a compound-profile modern "C" to "D" neck shape with an ultra-comfortable American Elite neck heel, 4th Generation Noiseless pickups with versatile electronics, "all short post" tuners, two exclusive eye-catching new colors, and so much more!

Made with the discerning modern guitarist in mind, the American Elite Telecaster offers a groundbreaking, contemporary take on Fender's original solidbody electric guitar. Crafted from alder, the American Elite Tele takes that classic single cutaway body and gives it deeper, more sculpted body contours for enhanced player comfort.

Whether you're playing chords down by the nut or soloing up by the end of the 'board, the American Elite neck offers outstanding playability and an exceptionally ergonomic playing experience thanks to the comfortably contoured updated neck heel, the compound-shaped modern "C" to "D" maple neck, and the 9.5"-14" compound-radius fingerboard with medium jumbo frets. The neck also comes equipped with an updated double action truss rod that features an easily adjustable wheel for on-the-fly relief adjustments without the need for special tools.

Loaded up with a pair of cutting-edge 4th Generation Noiseless pickups, the Fender American Elite Telecaster dishes out all the vintage-inspired Tele twang and tone you could ever want while offering noise-free modern performance. The electronics consist of a traditional 3-position blade, a Master Volume control, and Master No-Load Tone control, but under the hood there's a lot more to it. The Master Volume control features Fender's signature S-1 switch, which allows you add more tonal variety with series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups.

Another innovation in the American Elite Telecaster are a set of "All Short Post" tuning machines, which allows for lightning-fast, easy re-stringing as well as enhanced playability. These tuners provide an increased break angle at the nut along with increased tuning stability. Other upgrades on the American Elite Telecaster include a slick, stylish string tree, larger 7mm dot inlays, and a unique black chrome headstock logo. Comes complete with a premium American Elite hardshell case with body-hugging contours for optimum protection, nested stacking ability for easy storage and more secure transport, and TSA latches for increased security.
