American Elite Telecaster, Maple Fingerboard, Satin Ice Blue Metallic
Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.
The Fender American Elite Series means what it says: Elite. That means elite upgrades to iconic Fender construction. New compound neck profiles with rounded heels maximize playability. Soft touch knobs feature integrated switching for instant, seamless adjustment. Short post tuning machines sit flush with each other to ensure stable tuning. The new Suspension Bridge eschews screws in favor of more efficient transfer of vibration, increasing sustain and response, and redesigned body contours and exclusive colors look and feel good in the hand, because these are no ordinary electric guitars. These are Fender American Elite.
