From Fender – “The American Telecaster Faded Ash introduces a visually striking new style for the guitar that started it all. It features a never before seen brown anodized aluminium pickguard, which accentuates the attractive wood grain visible through the ash body with elegantly faded satin lacquer finish. Together, these create a complete aesthetic entirely new in more than six decades of Telecaster design.”
Other premium features include a comfortable body contour, tinted maple neck with a modern profile and satin urethane back finish, 9.5” radius maple fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets, two Texas Tele pickups with three-way switching, knurled flat-top control knobs (master volume and load tone control), and American Standard strings-through-body bridge with bent steel saddles and stamped brass plate.
