The Tele is a long beloved favorite for musicians from all over the spectrum. It's got one-of-a-kind style and great sound, no matter what version you pick up.  This American Professional Telecaster boasts American expert craftsmanship, professional Fender embellishments, and Tim Shaw designed V-Mod electronics. This model is for the guitar player that wants a versatile, premium, electric guitar, capable of handling many styles of playing.

American Expert Craftsmanship
The American Professional Telecaster was built from the ground up with Fender's long-standing tradition of quality American construction. From years of being tried and tested, and ultimately improved, Fender knows what works and how to do it well. This beautiful Tele sports Fender's Modern Deep "C" neck, a combo between the "C" and the "U" shapes. Thin at the headstock and medium towards the body, the neck design creates a smooth, comfortable playing experience. Coupled with narrow-tall frets which afford a solid feel with incredible bends, this Tele will have you playing at the top of your game.  

Professional Fender Embellishments
Fender spared no detail with this instrument. The American Professional Telecaster sports a Telecaster bridge with compensated brass barrel saddles. This increases the intonation. The ashtray style bridge cover, though familiar, has been cut back a little so you can pick closer without hitting it and messing up your vibe. While all American Professional Telecasters maintain the same level of expert quality, the ash body comes in many finish options, and either a rosewood or maple fingerboard. The stylistic details are in your hands.

Tim Shaw Designed V-Mod Electronics
Without the classic Tele amplified sound, all these incredible features would be for naught. This guitar sports two V-Mod pickups, giving you great tone and allowing you to play many different styles of music. Use the three-way selector to switch your signal to the in-between selection for a nice funk tone. Push it all the way to the neck to get some wonderful jazz tones. No matter what position you play at, the treble bleed circuit assures that if you turn down the volume down, you'll maintain your high end, which is very useful for live experiences.

• Options with Maple or Rosewood Fingerboard

Great buy!


Great experience. I was looking for a color that is no longer made. The salesman found an unsold brand new one in the warehouse, shipped it right to my house. . Great guitar, hassle free buying and a great price



Want it? Buy it!


After longing for a Fender American Professional Telecaster for years, I finally called Sam Ashe for some information. The extremely helpful an knowledgeable salesman answered my questions and informed me that there was a sale on the guitar . Done deal! My order arrived in a timely manner and in perfect condition. The Telecaster was flawless in fit and finish and was already set up to my tastes perfectly. Great purchasing experience!



Fender...what a beautiful guitar you've handed me


Flawless finish ("natural", great woodgrain), fantastic weight (7.2lbs), gorgeous neck in the whitest maple I've ever seen, and to top it off, they even have a redesigned ashtray cover as case candy. One that only fits on the bottom of the bridge. That thing is never coming off of mine outside of string changes! I love everything they did with this 2020 Tele. Brass barrel compensated saddles? Check. Bone nut? Check. Rolled fretboard edges, two piece body, satin neck...are you drooling, yet? There is no better time this decade to get an American (aka, REAL) Telecaster. I think this will be my signature for life.

Really Nice Guitar


I play a lot in Open G tuning and got tired of having to retune my Les Paul Gibson all the time so I decided to get the American Professional Telecaster and just keep it in Open G. This is a great Guitar. I got it in the classic Butterscotch Blonde which is really nice. The delivery was the next day after ordering via FedX which was fantastic. I have bought several guitars from Sam Ash and the customer service has always been great.



Best Value for Best Product


Searched far and wide for this gem. Not only did I get an unbelievable product, SamAsh made it happen with the best pricing...making it a no brainer!



I would buy it again if I needed one!


I love this guitar!



I love this guitar!


I bought it as an alternate to my Strat and my Jazzmaster, a hard tail instrument with heavy classic looks and vibes, and a clean maple on blonde aesthetic.

Excellent guitar, great craftsmanship


This American Tele not only looks amazing but plays just as great! I purchased the three tone sunburst and can't find a flaw in the finish. Love the playability of the neck and the frets; sustaine for days. The pickups are crisp and clear.
