Fender American Professional Telecaster Deluxe Shawbucker

Please note: Photos are of the actual guitar.

Superb new Tele Deluxe from Fender's all new American Professional Series. Comes complete with a Deluxe Hardshell case.

Here's what Fender say about it:

Smooth Feel, Fat Sound

In the late ‘60s and early ‘70s guitarists wanted hum-free tone based on the sound of an amp about to blow up. You asked—so we listened and created the Telecaster Deluxe in 1973. Today’s version, the American Professional Telecaster Deluxe ShawBucker, brings modern, player-oriented features to the stage and studio, and can still make an amp sizzle without breaking a sweat.


  • Two Tim Shaw-designed ShawBucker humbucking pickups
  • String-through-body Telecaster bridge with bent steel saddles
  • New modern "Deep C”-shaped neck profile
  • Bone nut; 22 narrow-tall frets for easier bending
  • Treble bleed circuit maintains highs when reducing volume
  • Includes Elite Molded hardshell case

ShawBucker Pickups

Voiced specifically for their position, our redesigned ShawBucker open-coil humbucking pickups deliver highly dynamic, multi-dimensional tone while resisting electrical noise.

New “Deep C” Neck Profile

Designed for comfort and speed, the new American Professional “Deep C” neck profile sports more substantial shoulders. The increased mass and altered geometry creates a more natural feel that’s perfect for chord and single-note playing alike.

Narrow-Tall Frets

Narrow-tall frets are taller and narrower than their medium jumbo cousins, making them especially effective for bending notes and playing chords up the neck with perfect intonation.

Vintage-Style Bridge

This vintage-style strings-thru-body bridge sports six stamped steel saddles for accurate intonation and vintage-informed tone.

Treble-Bleed Circuit

The treble-bleed circuit maintains the high end when turning down the volume knob to reduce gain, letting your tone shine through, no matter where the instrument’s volume is set.

Bone Nut

An original-era Fender design element, a bone nut contributes to superior tone and performance. Many players consider bone nuts to be more “organic” sounding.
