Up for sale, a 2019 Fender Limited Edition American Professional Telecaster in showroom clean condition and in perfect working order. Unique for its solid rosewood neck and gloss Rose Gold finish over an alder body, this discontinued model is complete with its original hardshell case and hangtags.
Designed to appeal to both vintage purists and modern players, the American Pro Tele features a Deep C neck profile carve, a pair of V-Mod single coil pickups, and a trio of compensated brass saddles. The tonewood combination of an alder body and solid rosewood neck offers a woody and clear natural acoustic sound. The new Tim Shaw-designed V-Mod pickups use different alnico magnets in each pickup so that the sound is particularly balanced on the three-way toggle. Not too bright or too scooped, these pickups have plenty of Fender sparkle and percussive cut, with the Tele's chewy twang in the bridge position. The instrument weighs 8lbs 1oz, professionally setup here at Mike & Mike's Guitar Bar with 10-46 strings and low action.
The rosewood neck has a smooth satin finish, and the "Deep C" profile carve is quite a bit more slim than the name would imply, measuring a slender .805" deep at the 1st fret and .910" at the 12th. The frets are slightly taller and narrower than medium jumbos, playing effortlessly in every register and bending easily on the 9 1/2" radius rosewood board. The nut measures a full 1 11/16" in width. On the headstock, the Fender-branded locking Schaller tuners offer optimal tuning stability with flawless chrome plating.
All of the electronics function as intended and the chrome-plated hardware shines like new. There's barely a scratch on the Rose Gold gloss finish, and the satin finish on the neck profile is equally as pristine.
The original hardshell case is included, along with the original hangtags and factory paperwork.
