- Fender American Special Telecaster (By Rohan)
Value Quality Price
the guitar is now almost 2 years old and continues to get better. the neck is showing amazing signs of improvement. the shine on the satin finish after getting "buffed" through rigourous playing is amazing...
The giutar came with 9's but i use 11's and it works splendidly. The gig bag is cheap but hardly a cause for concern.
the neck pickup is warm and yet has enought brightness to be a "tele", the bridge pickup is slightly hotter with more output, however retains the spank. the middle position is sweet.
if you are looking at this guitar i would recommend you to get one asap! total awesome!
in two years the guitar has become creamish and looks really beautiful and plays even better...super job! (Posted on 8/3/13)

Fender American Special Telecaster MN Olympic White
Fender American Special Telecaster
The Fender Telecaster has been in production for nearly 60 years. As the first mass produced solid-body guitars, it has been favored by a diverse group of musicians for numerous musical styles, and has graced countless recordings. Now Fender introduces the USA made Fender American Special Telecaster for a new decade, combining traditional features with modern appointments that make it a truly extraordinary version of this classic solidbody. The Fender American Special Telecaster provides the discriminating Tele player with an exceptional instrument at an unmatched value. For under $900, this Telecaster delivers amazing tone and value in a USA crafted instrument that is sure to please Tele traditionalists and newcomers alike. The Fender American Special Telecaster has an alder body with a gloss urethane finish that allows for a true resonance and sparkle from its classic tonewood. Choose either 3 tone sunburst or Olympic white. The necks are maple with a 9.5" radius, 22 jumbo frets, and a satin finish, providing outstanding playability. Bend big and often on these 22 jumbo frets without worry of fretting out. This neck was meant to be played, and played hard. Add a 70's styling decal, and a black 3 ply pickguard, and you have a classic fusion of playability and style. The pickups are two Texas Special alnico 5 single coils, known for their higher output and midrange presence. The bridge pickup has staggered magnets, and a copper plated steel bottom plate for increased output. The neck pickup has a nickel-silver cover that is clear and strong. This Telecaster set is standard on select Fender Custom Shop Telecasters, and will provide a rich, traditional, and sweet Telecaster tone. The bridge is an Original Vintage Tele Bridge with 3 brass saddles and a string-through body design. This feature on the American Special Telecaster ensures a rich and resonant tone with plenty of mid range and bass all the while preserving that characteristic Telecaster spank and twang. The switching is traditional 3 way, with a vintage styled barrel tipped switch. The tone circuit is Fender's patented Greasebucket tone circuit, which rolls off the highs without adding bass. This feature is especially useful for Telecaster players who need to use their tone controls to dig deeper into the mix all the while retaining a clarity and presence of their Telecaster tone. All of these features add up to an amazing Telecaster that incorporates the best of vintage and modern stylings. However, all of these features wouldn't add up to much unless the value was present, and indeed the value is inherent in the Fender American Special Telecaster. This USA crafted Telecaster is available for under $800. The Fender Telecaster is deceptively simple in its design, but if you were to list the players who have used Telecasters over the years you would be startled as to the diversity of styles, tones, and music produced by these iconic instruments. Now a USA made Telecaster is available with an astounding fusion of quality and value. ProGuitarShop is proud to present this new line of USA made Fender guitars to its customers. The Fender American Special Telecaster has all of the features that make it an amazing value as well as a high quality instrument that will deliver exceptional tone in an affordable package for the working musician. Fender and ProGuitarShop have heard the players speak, and is ready to deliver one of the most exceptional Telecasters of the new decade. The Fender American Special Telecaster - made by the people for the people.
