Supercharged Classic

Packed with a baker’s dozen of innovations, the American Elite Telecaster is the original solidbody electric guitar reimagined for modern players who want bleeding-edge performance with timeless visual style. The future of workhorse guitar design, this Tele® guitar’s stunning style, easy playing feel and flexible sound that meets any musical need, was made to tear it up on stage or in the studio.



Fender American Elite Telecaster Features:

  • Single cutaway electric guitar
  • Two all-new fourth generation Noiseless single-coil Telecaster pickups
  • S-1™ switching switches between parallel and series pickup wiring
  • Compound profile neck; redesigned contoured neck heel
  • 9.5”-14” compound radius fingerboard
  • Locking short-post tuning machines
  • Includes redesigned ABS Elite Molded Case with TSA locks

All-New American Elite Neck

Designed for 21st-century players, the American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern “C”-shape at the nut, the rear of the neck morphs along the length of the neck to a modern “D”-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of ergonomic support.

All-New 4th Generation Noiseless Pickups

With the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, we’ve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusion—authentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power.

All-New American Elite Neck Heel

For improved upper register access and elegantly functional modern style, the American Elite Series' new cutaway neck heel blends into the asymmetrical neck volute for comfortably enhanced playing feel.

New Double Action Truss Rod Adjustment Wheel

The new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.

Locking Tuning Machines with All Short Posts

Enjoy lightning-fast, easy re-stringing and enhanced playability from the new locking short post tuning machines. Not only do they provide increased break angle at the nut, they also increase tuning stability.

S-1 Switch

The S-1 switch on this model activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.
