From Our Research Team:
A Fire-breathing Tele with Duncan Humbuckers!Bring big humbucking tones to your rig with the FENDER® Custom Telecaster® FMT HH. The Telecaster has been a classic since the 1950s, and the design has changed very little since. There have been different incarnations of the Tele®, but at the heart of it, a Tele's a Tele® - until now. With the Custom Telecaster FMT HH, the Telecaster grows claws. The combination of the the mahogany body, flame maple top, and Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates Plus and '59 Reverse Polarity humbuckers at the bridge and neck respectively create a fat tone with tons of bite, perfect for anything from screaming blues licks to heavy modern rock.
Fender Custom Telecaster FMT HH at a Glance
Mahogany Body and Flame Maple Top
It's no big secret that mahogany is a great tone wood, producing a nice, warm, woody tone. And it's not news that using a Flame Maple Tops add a bit of bite to your tone. Together, these two woods produce a chunky, fat tone that will cut through any mix.
Seymour Duncan Humbuckers
The aforementioned natural tone of the Custom Telecaster FMT HH is amplified by a pair of Seymour Duncan Humbuckers (that's what the "HH" stands for). At the bridge you've got a Pearly Gates Plus, with a bright top end and harmonics "that jump out of the guitar." The neck position is fitted with a SH-1 '59 with slightly scooped mids for thick rhythm tones. A push/pull coil tap is installed on the Tone control.
The Custom Tele FMT is adorned with many touches that are normally only done for custom-built instruments. This Tele has cream-colored top body binding and a matching painted headstock. The position dot inlays on the fingerboard are oversized Abalone, and a Graphite nut is situated at the end of the fingerboard.

I want one in every color!
by Deb Hart from Henderson, MI USAI purchased a Cherry Burst one from another store because that's the color I wanted to get first. Now, I want a red one and an amber one! The finish is just so awesome!! These guitars have such a s... read more [+]weet small C profile neck that just fits my smaller hand very well. The nut width is awesome! The radius of the fingerboard makes bending so easy, with no fretting out, or choking. The Duncan pickups are very nice, but I might change the bridge pickup out for a JB because I want a little more bluesier tone than the Pearly Gates will get. Other than that, I'm gonna play this thing until I ahve to change the switch or pots. I love the belly cut contour and the body is light, so it won't kill my shoulder like a Les Paul does. Only negative thing I can say is that I wish it had a pickguard. I might have one custom made and glues on it. close [-]

The woods used in the making of this guitar are top notch. The grain in the mohogany wood is exceptionally great. The Flamed maple top is in my opinion is a double AA rating. The workmanship and cream binding are exceptional. The body contures on this guitar are greatly appreciated and makes this guitar lighter than an origional tele body. As for the pickups, they made the right choice for this guitar, the body resonates with a clear and consise tone. The pull push on the tone nob to split the pickups into a singel coil works wonderfully.
My final words to you the reader, don't hesitate, buy this guitar, you won't be sorry. close [-]

If this guitar was made at their USA plant you could easely be paying at least $1500 to $1800 for this guitar. The body counture is not what I thought it would be. It is the shape of a Tele, but not as heavy and much lighter than a Les Paul. The sound is like??? well it's unique, nothing like a Les Paul. It is agressive, soft, calm and smoldering, and the coil tap brings it back to its true tele form, but much warmer and richer with out any muddyness. Great job Fender!!! Thank you Sweetwater for offering us this great instrument. Just a note, I own 15 guitars at a value of over $50,000. This Fender Custom Telecaster FMT HH stnads up to all of them, taking no back seat. close [-]
