A departure from Fender's traditional tone wood choices, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster 90 enhances the traditional Tele style with the elegant look of a Malaysian Blackwood top. Strong and dense, Malaysian Blackwood has plenty of sustain, perfect for soaring lead lines and raucous rhythm work.
For authentic, vintage-inspired tone, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is loaded with two JP-90 single coil pickups. Topped by 22 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5" radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining flat enough for wide bends. The custom string-through body short-plated Tele bridge features compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation along the entire length of the neck.
With it's authentic, original era sound and style the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is a rare, inspiring example of Fender's world class workmanship.
