A Plek'd American Tele at an Amazing Price

Fender's American Special Telecaster solidbody electric guitar gives you popular Tele features at a price that's nearly unheard of for a US-made Fender. It all starts with an alder body for classic Tele tone, and it's all wrapped up in a great-looking gloss urethane finish. Fender's easy-playing trademark maple neck and rosewood fretboard combo sports jumbo frets for easy control. To make the neck even better, we've Plek'd it to bolster playability and upgraded the nut to bone for premium tonal transfer. In the tone department, a duo of Texas Special single-coils dish out distinctive Tele twang. And this American Special Telecaster is Plek'd by Sweetwater for a flawless setup.

Fender American Special Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • American-made quality at an unbeatable price
  • Cut through the mix
  • Sweetwater's Plek upgrade gives you amazing playability
American-made quality at an unbeatable price

Fender's American Special series exists to do one thing: give you access to genuine US-made Fenders at unbeatable prices. The American Special Telecaster gives you a great selection of cool Tele features, including a supremely playable maple neck/fingerboard and jumbo frets, two Texas Special single-coils, and Fender's innovative Greasebucket tone control. All in all, it's quite a potent music-delivery system. And it's made right here in the USA, in Fender's state-of-the-art Corona, California, factory.

Cut through the mix

You're sure to cut through the mix, thanks to a duo of Fender's Texas Special single-coils. These pickups give you classic tones that have been with us since the dawn of the Tele. But these pickups have a little something extra that sets the American Special Tele apart from previous Tele incarnations. Fender fitted this American Special Telecaster with their Greasebucket tone control, which rolls off highs without adding bass or affecting your volume. This is seriously cool, because it gives you explicit control over your tone onstage without your having to compensate for volume loss.

Sweetwater's Plek upgrade gives you amazing playability

This American Special Telecaster has been specially tweaked in Sweetwater's very own Plek Pro machine. Typically reserved for top-dollar custom guitars, this process levels the frets with pinpoint precision, providing you with the most playable fretboard you're likely to own. And our addition of a genuine bone nut maximizes vibration transfer and tone. Add to that a custom setup, a set of fresh strings, and Sweetwater's extensive 55-point Evaluation, and right out of the box, the American Special Telecaster is bound to be one of the nicest playing guitars you ever pick up.
