Timeless Tele Looks and Sound with Modern Touches!

The Fender Custom Deluxe Telecaster solidbody electric guitar combines classic elements with a few modern touches to bring you a truly amazing Tele! Sweetwater worked closely with the Fender Custom Shop to create a unique version of a timeless instrument: an ash body and classic "V"-shaped maple neck (topped with a rosewood fingerboard), toggle switch pickup selector, and 2-pickup configuration. Locking tuners, a Broadcaster bridge pickup, and a "Twisted" Tele neck pickup provide modern touches. Want modern performance and reliability with your old-school Tele vibe? Play the Custom Deluxe Telecaster!

Fender Custom Deluxe Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Ash body with "thin" nitrocellulose lacquer finish
  • A great pair of pickups
  • "V"-shaped neck
Ash body with "thin" nitrocellulose lacquer finish

This is a really great looking Telecaster thanks to the premium ash body in a rich color. To enhance the look and allow the body to more freely resonate, Fender uses a special "thin" nitrocellulose lacquer finish on this guitar. The perfect complement comes in the form of a three-ply parchment pickguard, plus the distinctive "Nocaster" chrome dome knobs.

You can't beat this pickup configuration

For a perfect combination of classic Tele tone and modern output, Fender outfitted the Custom Deluxe Telecaster with Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele single-coil in the neck position and a Broadcaster in the bridge position. You get all of the twang and high end sparkle the Tele has become famous for since it first appeared in 1951, plus the robust signal strength you need for different styles of music.

The smooth feel of a "V"-shaped neck

Leo Fender wasn't afraid to think outside the box when it came to guitar designs. In the 1950s and well into the 1970s, the blond natural maple neck became almost synonymous with Fender guitars. This Custom Deluxe Tele features a trademark maple neck with a classic "V" shape, topped with a rosewood fingerboard with a 9.5-inch radius. In keeping with contemporary player preferences, the fast playing neck is finished in smooth satin polyurethane.
