Fender American Professional Series Telecaster Deluxe Shawbucker


The Fender American Professional Series Telecaster Deluxe jettisons the original hot-rodded sound of modified Teles from the early '70s into a modern package with plenty of mojo. Built around a pair of Shawbucker humbucking pickups redesigned by Tim Shaw himself for this series, the Pro Tele Deluxe also brings a new treble bleed circuit into the mix for ensuring high-end presence no matter where you have the volume knob. Matching all that muscle is a new "Deep C" neck shape and narrow tall frets for some of the quickest playing yet.

  • Everything I wanted

    It sounds so warm and sweet. The deep C neck feels fantastic and plays really well. I totally dig the belly cut. The look of the sonic gray has a vintage elegance to it. This is everything I want in a tele with humbuckers. Improvements? I would love a heel cut, compound radius fretboard and mother of pearl inlay, but barring that... it's awesome!

    I was pleasantly surprised how well this guitar sounds. I tend to lean toward Strats, I have 2 of them, but this Tele has a great sound too!

    This baby looks amazing with a dark sunburst finish and Fender-branded PUP covers, and it sounds incredible through my limited edition tweed Princeton Reverb with an Eminence Cannabis Rex 12" speaker. The Shawbuckers give the tone a some real guts without losing that Tele chime. And the separate PUP…

  • One of the best Fender Tele's I've every played.

    This Guitar is great.....It feels like it (money) like it cost several thousands of dollars. The neck is great, by far my favorite on a Fender. The shawbuckers sound really awesome....they have their own sound; it's not like trying to copy a les paul sound it's a Tele twang with some fat or meat on…
