Fender American Elite Thinline Telecaster (Mystic Ice Blue)
Fender American Elite Thinline Tele Product Overview by GAK
The American Elite Thinline Tele brings the classic guitar well and truly into the 21st century.
The body has stayed pretty similar over the years and still features a classic single-cut shape with a flat top as it has done for the last 60 years.
Fender's Elite Suspension Bridge features three brass saddles which help to give it fantastic tone.
The guitar sports a compound neck profile designed for optimum comfort, a modern C shape at the nut which morphs into a D shaped profile at the neck heel greatly improving playability, going from 9.5" radius at the low end to a 14" at the high end.
Pick up wise you will find Fender's fourth generation Noiseless pickups. These pickups are almost completely noise free and provide vintage Fender sound.
Fender Product Overview
The Fender American Elite Thinline Telecaster brings the classic design of the iconic Thinline firmly into the 21st century with a number of cutting-edge design features. A pair of 4th generation Noiseless single-coils give the warm spanky sound that Thinline Teles are known for but without the hum that can make them a bit of a nightmare. This makes the American Elite a great recording guitar.
Fender has added an Elite Suspension Bridge to the Elite Thinline Tele which has the three brass saddles that are a key ingredient to the Telecaster's tone with the innovation of a screwless mount for increased vibration transfer. This gives added sustain and richer dynamics. The next-gen features don't stop there. The compound profile neck has a 9.5"-14" radius fingerboard which transforms from a C shape at the nut to a D at the neck heel, making it playable the whole way up. Enhanced body contours make this an extremely comfortable instrument on the strap. If you want great semi-hollow tones with modern playability, look no further than the Fender American Elite Thinline Telecaster.
