For authentic Telecaster twang and snap, this guitar sports 3 brass saddles for classic Fender style and sound.
New ClassicGear Tuning Machines
Combining vintage style with a modern 18:1 gear ratio, ClassicGear tuning machines have smooth action and make it easier to fine-tune your instrument.
Featuring a “Modern C”-shaped profile that works well with almost any playing style, the neck also hosts a satin finish on the back, giving it a smooth, fast playing feel.
Jumbo frets make it easier to achieve wide, expressive bends that add your personal touch to your music.

This uniquely Fender tone system lets you cut treble without losing gain or “muddying” your sound, preserving your carefully shaped tone.
