The best is the best again and then wait...its even more...The Best! Okay now here we go. The Fender American Professional Telecaster is a fantastic instrument and this one in particular is a stunner. The playability is outrageous, the look is stunning, and the tone is pure classic Telecaster!
Fender is guided by one clear, simple directive: make life better for musicians. While the original Telecaster certainly did that (and then some), we weren't content to rest on our laurels. Our team of mad scientists examined every component in near-microscopic detail. If we were able to improve it with a new design or modern materials we did; if it didn't need improvement, we left it alone. When the wood chips and solder fumes settled, what was left was the American Professional Telecaster—everything you need to play your best.
