Product Description

In 1982 Fender was looking to go in some new directions. That year they introduced their vintage re-issue line, taking everything back to square one, but also introduced the Elite Series with a more forward thinking design. These Elite guitars were top of the line. Pick one up and it feels like a Tele should, nicely balanced, and comfy like an old friend. From there it got upgrades all around with a heavy cast 6-saddle top-loading bridge, noise-cancelling pickups with alnico 2 magnets, active TBX and MDX tone controls capable of creating fat humbucking and cutting single-coil sounds (similar controls continue to be used on the current Eric Clapton Strats), knobs with a serrated rubber insert for easy gripping, and a Gibson-style, 3-way toggle switch. Elite Tele necks featured a Bi-flex truss rod, jumbo frets, and a 12" radius fretboard. 7.8 lbs. This one has some light bumps and bruises but overall it is very clean and has been well kept. It's a great player and just needs a good home.
