    Pay Homage To Fender's Original Prototype Instruments With The Fender Limited Edition American Professional Pine Telecaster


    Fender’s original prototype instruments were fashioned from pine and now, with the 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Pine Telecaster they have come full-circle. This body wood began its functional life over 100 years ago, as part of the Buckstaff Furniture Company’s facility in Oshkosh, WI before it was reclaimed, cooked and fashioned into an instrument. The grain, knotholes and man-made imperfections make each one unique.

    For authentic, vintage-inspired tone, the 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Pine Telecaster is loaded with a single American Vintage ’64 Gray-bottom single-coil Tele pickup and a Lollar Charlie Christian single-coil neck pickup. The Lollar pickup was selected for its oldschool “woody” tone and rustic aesthetic appeal and vibe. Topped by 22 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining flat enough for wide bends. The three-saddle stringthrough-body Tele bridge features compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation along the entire length of the neck.

    With its classic, original-era sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition American Professional Pine Telecaster is an inspiring tribute to the Telecaster’s origin.

    COOKED, RECLAIMED PINE BODY

    This unique guitar is hand-crafted from 130-year-old pine reclaimed from the Globe Grain Elevator facility in Superior, Wisconsin, complete with original grain, knotholes and man-made imperfections. A lightweight wood, pine provides ringing sustain and a warm, round tone. "Cooking" is a thermal treatment that removes moisture, sweetens the tone and darkens the natural color of the wood.

    HAND-RUBBED OIL NECK FINISH

    The hand-rubbed oil finish on the back of the neck of this guitar is a high-end feature that imparts a richly smooth fret-hand feel, allowing you to glide with speed and comfort from the first fret all the way up to the highest reaches of the fingerboard.

    BLACK ANODIZED ALUMINUM PICKGUARD

    A 1-ply anodized aluminum pickguard gives this guitar a classic and classy look.

    LIMITED EDITION NECK PLATE

    As a special appointment, this guitar features an engraved 'Limited Edition' neck plate marking it as a special instrument.
