Gorgeous carved flamed maple top and 2 chunky humbuckers.

The Fender Custom Telecaster FMT Electric Guitar has tonal versatility and looks that make it welcome in any venue at a price that makes it a real Tele value. Mahogany body and set mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard and 6-saddle string-thru-body hardtail bridge provide great resonance and longer sustain. Cast sealed tuning machines keep tuning spot-on while stunning transparent finishes let the brilliance of the maple figuring shine through. Fat tones are produced by the Seymour Duncan SHPGP-1B Pearly Gates Plus bridge humbucker and Seymour Duncan SH-1N RP '59 Reverse-Polarity neck humbucker that can be switched from double to single-coil mode via a push-pull tone control.

Check the drop-down menu to the right to select colors and/or other options.

fender tele purchase

By Glenn Hagen

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

Pro musician,working.I made this purchase looking for a ZZ top sound and this guitar nails it dead on.with a 59 in the bridge and a pearly gates in the neck it s a nice guitar for the price.I wanted a tele in my collection but a standard one was not my style.Qaulity was fine from korea but the factory set up had a little to be desired ,nothing a little action adjustment could not fix, and m123 was quite helpful on the price and service.

Just a great and unusual Fender

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

I have this guitar in the spalted maple top but it is the same guitar - Seymores single coil tap and all. The action on mine is great though I had to tweek it slightly for the 10s that I use. The sound is very nice - I am thinking about swaping out the PUs but just to experiment, not out of any real dissatisfaction with the existing equip. The split coil does decrease the volume but that should be expected. Overall a beautiful, great playing and sounding guitar. I always get alot of compliments on it. Thanks Fender

great guitar

By James Taylor

from England

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar recently and was looking to compliment my USA vintage re-issue strat, well I can't put this one down now. It's light with a big sound and clarity that I have been looking for ages.Recommend this guitar highly, a well produced all roound axe.

Good guitar, good value

By Boyd Joiner

from Cincinnati

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

Beautiful guitar, nearly flawless finish, required a bit of set-up work, though no more than any other guitar. Good tone, though I had expected more difference from the Coil-tap switch. The tone control does not seem to work with the push-pull switch pulled out.

whoa!! tons of tone

By C hris Massey

from kansas city

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

I was really surprised at the punch of this guitar and the versatility of sound with the coil tapping .I had a very pleasant surprise as my Tele was loaded with Seymour Duncans and not the Fender p/ups described. The Pearly gate in the bridge is nice, great treble and midrange, great for trills and the pinch harmonics jump out like something from the other side.For those of you who are shredders the neck will do nicely as quick as my wizard2 on my Ibanez S series but not as flat. You may want to lightly sand the back though to allow for more fluid transitions up and down the neck as the lacquer tends to get slightly "grabby" as your palm slides.Needed .10's and the action raised a little to alleviate a little bit of a hump where the neck joins body to get rid of a little fret buzz, but this was minimal work.This is a guitar that will set you apart from the masses . The crimson red is the way to go hands down for my money.Enjoy!!

Great Guitar

By Brady Booth

from Temple Texas

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

I have had them all, from Gibson to Stratocaster. When I got my hands on this one, it blew me away! Great sound, great volume, great feel! Screaming tones through my 15watt Marshall. Why pay big prices for something not as good?

Wicked Awesome guitar

By keenan

from Texas

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

I'm not sure if this site tells you or not but this guitar has a pickup tapper that makes both the humbuckers single coils. You just pull the tone knob up. The volume difference is noticeable but you get the best of both worlds in a very easy to play and very easy to operate system. Couldn't ask for a better guitar. Well I could but I'd be paying an arm and a leg for it. This one does everything I've every needed out of a guitar.

Great tone and feel

By Lou-qrwAj

from Nova Scotia Canada

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

I traded an American Hot Rodded fat stratocaster SSH for this guitar. The Strat was always uncomfortable for me for some reason, I believe the longer top horn pulled it sideways. At first, I was looking for a second to compliment the Strat. As soon as I played this Guitar I knew it was the one. It has an awesome tone very versitile with the tap. The neck size is great. I think if anyone else is having a comfort issue try this guitar. I really recommend it.

great guitar

By dyl

from boston

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar a year or so ago. The features on this guitar blew me away. Probably the best feature is the coil tap. With this guitar a single coil or humbucking rig is only a quick pull or push of the tone nob away. Plus it all sounds great. The sustain is also quite good, better than some Pauls I've played. Full chords sound amazing. The neck is very comfortable and the action isn't too high. It's actually quite low out of the box, but mine had zero fret buzz. The finish is very eye pleasing and the guitar just flows. Very sexy. The stock tuning pegs are good, and the guitar hardly ever goes out of tune. There are limits though, but even real bendy solos hardly affect your tuning. If you use a lot of drop tunings, the effectiveness of the tuning pegs is a definite plus. The guitar is very light, it almost feels hollow. I like the weight because it helps you get through those long sets unhurt. It's also balanced nicely, making playing easier. The price isn't back breaking either, priced much less than most Pauls. All in all a great guitar.

GREAT SOUND!

By STEVIE J.

from NORTH CAROLINA

Comments about Fender Special Edition Custom Telecaster FMT HH Electric Guitar:

WHAT A BARGAIN! I GOT A REAL DEAL ON THIS GUITAR AND I WAS SO SURPRISED BY THE TONE! THICK RICH "LP" MEAT WITH A SLICK FENDER LOOK! NECK KIND OF FEELS LIKE A "PAUL" TOO. THIS IS AS GOOD AS GUITARS COSTING TWICE AS MUCH. ACTION WAS A LITTLE HIGH AND STIFF OUT OF THE BOX, BUT A GOOD SET OF STRINGS AND A LITTLE ADJUSTMENT AND THERE YOU GO! I PLAY GUITAR WITH OUR PRAISE AND WORSHIP TEAM AT CHURCH.(VERY CONTEMPORARY STUFF). I'VE PLAYED STRATS, "PAULS" PRSs, AND OTHERS. NONE HAVE BEEN CLOSE TO THE LOOK SOUND AND FEEL OF THIS GUITAR. I AM SO PLEASED WITH THIS GUITAR. THANKS, FENDER! I'LL HAVE THIS GUITAR FOR A LONG TIME
