The Fender Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe is back and ready to rock in all its double-humbucking glory!

Whether he's rockin' out as the lead guitarist of punk/hard rock band the Foo Fighters or showing us his genuine love for country with his own band Chris Shiflett & the Dead Peasants, Chris "Shifty" Shiflett is seldom seen without a Telecaster in his hands. Today, Fender is extremely excited to bring back the Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe, which combines Shiflett's love for Teles and his love for massive humbucking tone into one killer instrument. Representing an exceptional value, the Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe gives players an affordable, high-performance Tele with "Shifty"-approved style, sound and playability.

Closely modeled after Shiflett's go-to '72 Tele Deluxe, the Fender Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe sports an alder body that comes dressed in your choice of either a Shoreline Gold or Black finish. The neck is carved from maple and carries a 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard with medium-jumbo frets for effortless string bending, smooth playability and low action. The Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe comes equipped with high-quality chrome hardware, which includes a set of Vintage "F" Style tuning machines and a hard tail strings-thru-body 6-saddle bridge.

The Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe comes loaded up with distinctive signature features that set this model apart from the rest of the pack. This axe comes outfitted with a pair of custom-designed high-output CS1 and CS2 humbuckers to deliver all that roaring humbucker tone, bite and growl that the famed guitarist requires. Rounding out this awesome signature Tele, Shiflett's signature graces the back of the headstock while a custom-stenciled black hardshell case with Shiflett's name on it is included with your purchase.

Classic Beauty with some Muscle!

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

This beautiful, timeless guitar has all the power to rock with the class and sophistication of the old-school Telecasters. This guitar is very reminiscent of the 1972 Tele Deluxe with some extra 'oomph'! The 'oomph' is delivered in the way of the custom-designed, high-output humbuckers, which really allow the guitar to roar. The design is absolutely beautiful with high-quality chrome hardware, F Style tuning machines, a 6-saddle bridge and a really thoughtfully and subtly placed Shiflett signature on the back of the headstock. This is a beautiful guitar for any Foo Fighter fan, Tele fan or really, any guitarist.

Great tele with nice features

By 

from Edison, NJ

The Chris Shifflet Telecaster Deluxe is an interesting instrument. It comes packed with two huge sounding humbuckers instead of the standard two single coil pickups and they pack a big punch. The tone and volume controls are independent for each pickup which makes for a lot of tonal variety when you've got this plugged in. The neck feels just as smooth and effortless to play on as any Tele but the rosewood fretboard adds a bit of warmth and character that you don't get with other Telecasters. This is a great guitar for anyone who wants a versatile Telecaster with a variety of options.

Non Nashville Tele, YAY!

By 

from Cincinnati, OH

Verified Reviewer

Tired of the clichéd Nashville Tele Twang? Then this is the tele for you. With 2 humbuckers you can eliminate all twang & rock as hard as you want. All while sporting the traditional tele look. Modeled after a 72 tele with modern updates such as, high output humbuckers. The shoreline gold finish adds a touch of class.

Great signature model guitar.

By 

from Edison, NJ

Staff Reviewer

The Chris Shiflett Tele is an incredibly good guitar, not only for fans of The Foo Fighters but for fans of Fender '72 telecasters. Solid design and custom CS1 and CS2 pickups give this guitar a very unique tone. The Shoreline Gold color is also a very unique color that you don't see on to many guitars making it a very one-of-a-kind guitar.

      Classic Tele look that packs a little extra punch from the humbuckers. Perfect for a more rockin' edgy sound than the normal twang from traditional Telecasters. Top quality finish and very comfortable neck and playability. This is a Sam Ash review.

      Off the rack custom!

      By

      Verified Reviewer

      This guitar meets a lot of needs. The humbuckers on this Tele are hum free and ready to roar with very useful, individual controls for tone, volume, and pickup selection. 70's appointments aren't just for looks--larger headstock means more mass which means more tone. Setup was great out of the box.

      Shifty tele

      By 

      from Cincinnati

      Staff Reviewer

      Chris Shifflet is known for being a rocker with the Foo's or a twanger doing country with his own band. This tele is really the best of both world's. Very versatile, comfortable and retro looking. For anyone who plays a variety of styles, this is perfect!

      Fender does it again!

      This tele can still twang, but excels in rawking. The fit and finish are great! I really like the hardshell case as well.

          Great rocking telecaster. Being the signature guitar of one of the Foo Fighters this should be expected, but for the money this guitar is surprisingly good. Extremely comfortable to play, which is always a plus. Essentially this tele is a modern twist on an icon. Enjoy it my friends.
