Fender's easy-playing trademark maple neck/fingerboard combo sports jumbo frets for easy shredding, while in the tone department, a duo of Texas Special™ single-coils dish out distinctive Tele twang. We guitarists here at Sweetwater are a picky bunch, so trust us - you're gonna love the FENDER® American Special Telecaster!

Cut through the mix
Be sure to cut through the mix, thanks to a duo of Fender's Texas Special single coils. These pickups give you classic tones that have been with us since the dawn of the Tele®. But these pickups have a little something extra that sets the American Special Tele apart from previous Tele incarnations. Fender's way-cool "Greasebucket" tone circuit! If you're looking for an American-made Tele with unbeatable bang for the buck, it's the American Special Telecaster®.

Greasebucket tone control rolls off highs without adding bass
Fender has fitted their American Special Telecaster with their Greasebucket tone control, which rolls off highs without adding bass or affecting your volume. This is seriously cool, because it gives you explicit control over your tone onstage without your having to compensate for volume loss - making the American Special Tele a serious tone machine.
