Product Features

Fusing classic Telecaster style with modern sound and features, the American Elite Telecaster is the original solidbody electric guitar reimagined for the modern guitarist who needs more from their instrument. With its stunning style, easy-playing performance and flexible sound that matches any playing situation, this Tele® was made to tear it up on stage or in the studio.

Featured on all American Elite instruments, the new 4th generation Noiseless pickups are only available in this series, and represent a quantum leap in pickup design. Combining authentic, vintage-style sound with effectively noise-free performance, these are the pinnacle of Fender’s noiseless pickup designs, generating sparkling cleans and fat, overdriven tones that scream with pure rock ‘n’ roll power.

Engineered for fast playing and effortless position changes, the compound profile neck with a 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard is ideal for all playing styles. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of comfortable support for fret hand antics. Locking, all short-post tuning machines provide increased break angle at the bone nut for buzz-free performance. The truss rod wheel is positioned at the butt end of the neck for easy accessibility when adjusting neck relief.

Fender is renowned for head-turning style, and this guitar is no different—from the refined ergonomic rear contour that hugs the player’s body to the black chrome headstock logo and large pearloid fret markers this instrument will dazzle the audience with elegant style. The American Elite Telecaster is a bold new addition to the Fender family tree, a top-notch performer that can handle whatever music you might you throw at it. Includes a redesigned Elite Molded Case with TSA locks to provide increased protection for your cherished instrument.

Not for the vintage purist but the modern touches are thoughtful and well done. Beautiful tobacco sunburst over ash. The contoured neck heel is a work of art. The tone is a bit modern but nice.

Not sure I love the bright white binding, it is so white. Constructive criticism: edges of the rosewood fretboard should be smoother - they have a rough "wave" pattern. Subpar setup caused bends to fret out.

I have owned a Mexican Standard Telecaster for years and love it. When the Elite series was released I was very excited in not only the color options, but in the specs/features of this guitar. My love for the Mexican standard made me purchase this guitar without playing it - big mistake... The finish and details are stunning, this is by far the nicest non-custom shop Fender I've seen. The neck profile makes hitting the lower frets a breeze, and the white binding on the body gives this tele a unique look. Unfortunately once plugged in the guitar falls flat. The pickups have no depth, do not respond to overdrive well - truthfully I believe the Mexican tele sounds nicer even on a clean channel. It is a shame that a guitar priced in this range needs to have aftermarket pickups installed to make it sound well. I read another review on this site regarding the poor pickup sound quality, and I should have listened. If you don't mind putting a few hundred more into the guitar for nicer pickups, then the other features make this guitar worth the money - If not I would stick with a standard model tele. Big disappointment...

.The guitar itself is top notch. Ultimately playable, great neck, great fretboard, action is perfect. Finish is outstanding and looks great under stage lighting. I have the Autumn Blaze Metallic and it is stunning. Locking tuners, strap locks, upgraded saddles, tummy cut, pearloid pick guard are all great upgrades. The case is a nice inclusion with leather strap and hardware.

The not so good: pickups. I had high hopes that this new version of the Fender's Noiseless pickups. But as soon as I plugged in to my amps I knew they had to go. Shrill, way too much top end, not a lot of bottom, and not great clarity. I actually hate them. I have a set of Dimarzio Area T's in my other Tele which are a great match for the boutique pickups in my buddy's Whitfill Tele and those sound awesome. Tone-wise, my MIM Tele with the Area T's sounds light years better. Guess what I'm putting in? Kind of a minor blow to the purchase that you'd spend ~$1800 on Fender's new top of the line guitar only to have to replace the pickups in it.

Bottom line: great guitar that I will own for a lifetime, but Fender scores a major miss on the pickups.
