2011 Fender USA Telecaster Deluxe & OHSC
N3 Noiseless Pickups, Bound Body, Compound Radius Fretboard & Locking Tuners
This Fender USA Telecaster Deluxe is an absolute joy. It is one of two Deluxe Telecasters I have been asked to sell on behalf of my luthier Andy Crockett. Not something I usually do but these guitars are both in near perfect condition, they come with all the original tags and both have been set up professionally by Andy. This guitar has a Rosewood Fretboard, White Pearloid 3 ply pickguard with a Cherry Sunburst finish and the other guitar has a Maple fretboard, white 3 ply pickguard & a 3 tone sunburst finish. Otherwise, they are the same model.
The Fender Telecaster Deluxe is a real "upmarket" version of the USA Standard. It features noiseless N3 pickups with electrics that also give both "in series" & "in parallel" options by way of an extra switch on the volume pot. The neck has a compound radius (more curved near the nut & gradually becoming flatter towards the bridge end) The frets are a medium jumbo & the tuners are Fenders own locking style. The body looks to me to be two piece & the top of the body is bound. The guitar also has a "rear belly contour" & sculptured heel for easier access to the top frets. The guitar oozes quality & this is echoed in the various online reviews.
The condition of this guitar is excellent with no modifications and light playing marks only. It has barely been used & has no fretwear. I love the cherry sunburst finish & the headstock script has a raised chrome finish.
