2006 Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Aged Cherry Sunburst w/ S1, Case


+ shipping

Up for sale, a 2006 Fender American Deluxe Telecaster in exceptional, 100% original condition and in perfect working order. A discontinued model, this Tele combines traditional tonewoods with modern playability, and both sonically and aesthetically the Deluxe line is a notable step up from the American Standard series, boasting Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pickups, S1 switching, abalone dot inlay, and a contoured body with Aged Cherry Sunburst finish framed by top binding.

Tonewoods include a select alder body and a maple neck capped by a thick slab 22-fret rosewood fretboard. The Samarium Cobalt Noiseless single coil pickups are bright and snappy, with a smooth midrange character and more overall sonic heft than many Teles. The S-1 Switch offers even more tonal flexibility; when engaged while the pickup selector is in position 2 (tandem bridge and neck configuration), it engages both pickups in Series. Series wiring offers a fuller, punchier sound with a more robust midrange and low end, while traditional Parallel operation has a pleasant treble-forward shimmer. This Fender American Deluxe Telecaster weighs 7lbs 12oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike’s Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings, low action, and spot-on intonation.
