Fender Custom Telecaster FMT HH - Amber with Rosewood Fingerboard

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 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

  • Seymour Duncan Humbuckers
  • Custom Features
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.

Custom Features

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.

Fender Custom Telecaster FMT HH Features:

  • Body: Mahogany with carved flame maple top

  • Neck: Mahogany, set neck, modern "C" shape, polyurethane finish
  • Fingerboard: Rosewood, 15.75" radius
  • Pickups: 1 Seymour Duncan SHPGP-1B Pearly Gates Plus humbucking pickup (bridge), 1 Seymour Duncan SH-1N RP '59 Reverse Polarity humbucking pickup (neck)

Pretty Thing

Can't get over the workmanship of this guitar for the money. Striking looks, great play-ability, great sound and great service from Thomas Leahy and the Sweetwater team. If you like the Tele body and the versatility of the humbucker / sIngle coil combination, you just can't go wrong.

Versatile Telecaster

First I'd like to say thanks to Sweetwater for the amazing customer experience, love bouncing ideas off my sales rep. Drew Foster!! This telecaster has been a wonderful edition to my guitar collection and the pictures DO NOT do it justice. My FMT has the amber finish and it is flawless. The Seymour Duncan pickups really give this guitar that little something extra to go along with the "coil tap" option which gives you multiply different sounds coming from this guitar. The "smoked nickel" finish on the tuners, knobs and humbucker mounting rings gives it that high quality look that I feel for immediately. I have multiply high dollar Fender guitars but can't seem to put this one down!

(Don't Call it a) Fender Les Paul

I am utterly amazed at how much I love this guitar! I'm a Fender fan at heart, but that doesn't mean I don't love a good Les Paul (particularly the Gibson Custom '58 Reissue. Everyone loves the '59, but the '58 is the one I'll have when the budget eventually allows)! Anyway, I've wanted something that would fit that hole in my heart until the day comes that I can afford my dream Les Paul. This certainly doesn't FEEL like a 50's Les Paul by any stretch of the imagination (thin neck, thin and INCREDIBLY light body, longer scale, narrower nut, etc.), but it absolutely can sound like one. I'd not heard many Seymour Duncan pickups I liked until this guitar came along. The '59 (reverse wound in this guitar for hum cancelling when coil tap is engaged) sounds like a hot PAF, and the Pearly Gates has incredible definition; you can throw a LOT of gain at it and it won't get muddy. Of course, when I read other people's reviews of gear, and they say "it sounds like ___________," I immediately balk, so I'll understand if you don't believe me when I say that this is the first Fender guitar I've ever heard that can achieve the trademark Gibson tone. In fact, I bet if you played this through one of those new Bassbreaker amps, cranked all the way and with a Tube Screamer in front, you'd complete the 80's hard rock trifecta! If you want to stay Fender loyal, or you can't or don't want to shell out a few thousand bucks for a high end Les Paul, don't hesitate to snag up one of these guitars!

A sweet Guitar at a great price.

I'll begin by saying I own 14 guitars. I say this not to brag but to make a point. Most of my guitars cost me more than this Fender FMT HH, some double the price, but this guitar stands up to almost every guitar I own. I've always loved the Fender telecaster and when mine was damaged, I right away went to Sweetwater to find a replacement. I play heavier music so when my Ed, Sweetwater "Guide" sent me pictures of this guitar, I was sold as far as looks. It has the Tele style but the double humbuckers...and they scream! The Amber finish is gorgeous as far as the playability, it's a 9 or a 10. The pickups sound great playing metal but with the push/pull pot at the ready, I can hone in on those traditional Tele tones too. I've always found Fenders to play a bit stiff (perhaps that's due to the scale of the neck) but this Fender has impeccable action. Easy on the fingers and eyes. If you want the best of both worlds, this is your guitar.
