The Fender American Series Telecaster was a staple of the Fender range from the mid-eighties until the range was rebranded the Professional range in 2017. The model was revamped in 2000 with a few changes over the previous American Standard model. This new edition featured newly designed pickups with new ‘no-load Delta Tone’ control, the feel of the neck improved with gently rolled edges for a broken in feel and the guitar was offered in a selection of new colours.
The guitar is in excellent condition, it’s hard to believe the guitar is over twenty years old. The guitar is stock with little to no play wear. The Hot Rod Red finish was only offered on this model in 2000 and 2001 and is a rare finish especially on a Telecaster.
Weighing in at a comfortable 7.9lbs the guitar plays well and comes with the original Fender Case, Tags, Cloth and Strap.
