Professional is an attitude. Creativity is a way of life. These instruments are built for players who are looking to push the boundaries of creativity and personal expression forwards.

Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional guitars' "Deep C" neck profile sports more substantial shoulders for a more natural feel that's perfect for chord and single-note playing alike. A roasted maple neck provides additional stability, enhanced figure and increased sustain.

Simply put, pickups are the heart and soul of an electric instrument's voice. V-Mod pickups - crafted with a proprietary blend of alnico magnet types - and the newly redesigned ShawBucker humbucking pickups are voiced specifically for each position.

Purchased this on sale ($400 of regular price). Fit and finish are perfect. Easy to set up low action with no fret buzz whatsoever. Love the Shawbucker neck pickup. Wonderful jazz tone provides a little more "thickness" than the standard tele neck pick up. The roasted neck is a dream to play. Very happy with this purchase.

I've had it for around half a year now, and in that time I've struggled constantly to remove fret buzz and have recently discovered a crack in the headstock, despite being used carefully and sparingly. The neck pickup sounds muddy in my opinion as well. All in all a very seriously disappointing guitar to own, and one I regret saving up to buy.

Wanted to add a tele with a humbucker to the collection in search of a better jazz sound. The sound from the Shawbucker is amazing... clean and warm but not at all dull. Roll the tone up just a bit and it shines like a tele should but with more punch. After changing strings to something a bit heavier than those from the factory, the 6th string buzzed bad at the nut. That was easily remedied but for the price of the guitar I found the cut of the nut to be a bit disappointing. Also, the frets are just a bit sharp-edged along the bottom but not bad enough to bother going to work on. Still, for the price... The finish on the body is 'different'. It appears to be very thin and in the light you can see the wood texture. It doesn't have that dipped in plastic look. Not sure if it's supposed to be like this or if all the bodies in this limited edition came out the same but I've decided that I like it. The neck itself is beautiful. Because of the neck and the tone from the Shawbucker, this guitar is definitely my new favorite.

Just a well made beauty. I own a few telecasters and this one is my favorite. Ive owned it for about 8 months so its been played a lot before I wrote this. The quality from new was flawless. The set up from the factory was very good. Classic tele sounds plus the shawbucker in the neck sounds killer. The only 2 options i would have liked to see on this is a bigsby and or a b bender. They are also a limited run so get one before they are gone.

With only 130 of these made, I can only suggest that you try one of the remaining few while you still can. Every once in a while, you'll pick up a guitar and you immediately know you need to have it. This is the most balanced, flawless telecaster I have ever held. Purists may not like that the lipstick pup has been replaced with a Shawbucker, but this thing sings in all three positions -- with a definite boost in neck position character from the Shawbucker. Go try one for yourself. You can't have mine.

I purchased this guitar recently. The color is classic with the daphne blue and the ivory pick guard. The roasted neck is very smooth but has a deep C shape. This may not be to everyone’s liking but adds to the sustain of the guitar. The pick ups are phenomenal! It has a Shawbucker in the neck that has such a full bright sound. It’s not dull and boring. The bridge PUP is good and is a nice match with the humbucker. I love the sound of this guitar. It is a limited run so you won’t find this set up in another store. The price is reasonable for a quality USA guitar.

I’ve had a hard time finding the proper Tele. It’s been since 1980. The Teles I like are all made in the golden age of the Tele..... then this beauty comes along and I finally found what I’ve been looking for.,,,, great job Fender. Leo would be proud .😎🤙
