Fender is proud to offer their American Pro Tele Deluxe like you've never seen it before with the 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Mahogany Tele Deluxe Shawbucker Electric Guitar. Rather than offering the standard alder or tonewoods for the body, these Teles employ a unique a selection of Honduran mahogany that was rescued from the forest floor after tropical Hurricane Mitch back in '98. Sonically, this adds some extra warmth and richness to that classic Tele bite we've all come to know and love. It also comes dressed in an elegantly eye-catching Crimson Red finish—a finish that's not available on the standard American Professional Deluxe Tele Shawbucker models. Another departure from the standard model, the neck of this beautiful American Professional Mahogany Tele Deluxe Shawbucker is carved from mahogany instead of maple.

A pair of Fender's exclusive re-designed Shawbucker pickups, which are specifically voiced for each position, offer a dynamic, multi-dimensional voice while combatting electrical noise. For easy tonal tailoring, the pickups are wired through a 3-way toggle along with independent volume and tone controls for each pickup. Treble Bleed circuits on both volume controls allow you to maintain your high-end even when you roll off on the volume control. Additional appointments on this finely crafted Tele include a cozy Modern "Deep C" neck profile, a 9.5"-radius fingerboard with narrow tall frets, a bone nut, high-quality nickel/chrome hardware, and an exclusive Limited Edition neck plate. Includes hardshell case and Certificate of Authenticity.

A truly


I have nearly one hundred guitars of all types and brands and I've been playing over forty years (just to show where I'm coming from). This is a truly unique instrument that plays like a dream and has a eminently useful array of tones. I have had a love affair with mahogany after helping my mom refinish an old four post antique mahogany bed. I loved the way you could take the wood and add the stain as well as the varnish becoming a layer of permanence. That bed is in my house nearly 60 years later. I gave up a lot of furniture choices to my siblings to get that bed for it's memories. I still love mahogany today in the form of guitars. This guitar was a natural for me so I ordered one. When it arrived I was like a little kid at Christmas but I let it sit in the box for eight hours to warm up. When I first got this instrument in my hands it felt like no guitar I've ever held. When I tuned it up and plugged it in I was rewarded with a beautifully balanced tone and a feel that felt right. Honest to god I started to look around and make sure I was still in my living room and not heaven. It really feels to me like I had been sent a guitar by angels. Those angels must work for Fender. The mahogany in both neck and body likely come from the same tree. I believe the very similar woods from the storm work together to create a very resonant combo. The pickups really seem to match the wood, the treble bypass works great for me it makes the guitar much more touch sensitive. The tone controls are very nicely balanced and work evenly across the entire rotation. The volume and treble controls are really great if you are like me and juggle them to change tone. I think you could play most any genre except for chicken picking which you could do with a pedal if necessary. The neck is fast the action nice and easy and smooth yet I don't bottom out on slide (I play slide 99% of the time). Beautiful finish on body and the neck feels great.




Dream Guitar


This is a truly, exceptionally beautiful guitar that is decidedly different than my 2011 60th Anniversary Telecaster. These pickups are really great. Not sure how wild I am about the treble bleed circuit, as I like the high end roll off, but it does what it says. I am fortunate to own one of the new 68 Custom Deluxe Reverb amps from Fender and this guitar plugged straight into that amp with the amp on about 6 is pure rock and roll. Still no distortion pedal can duplicate it. My only beefs are that it should have the tummy cut of the lower Shawbucker models and, at this price point, they should all come with Fender's locking tuners.
