American Elite Telecaster Thinline in Mystic Ice Blue with Maple Fingerboard
From the Fender website:
" The American Elite Telecaster Thinline is a semi-hollow instrument for the 21st-century guitarist who embraces innovation in an instrument and their playing. The American Elite Series sports a new compound neck profile designed for comfort and the ultimate playability. A modern C-shape at the nut, the profile morphs along the length of the neck to a modern D-shaped profile at the updated neck heel, providing plenty of ergonomic support. And with the all-new 4th generation Noiseless pickups, exclusive to the American Elite Series, weve achieved the sonic equivalent of cold fusionauthentic vintage-style Fender sound combined with noise-free performance. A quantum leap in pickup technology, these bleeding-edge pickups are the pinnacle of our pickup designs, offering crisp, clear cleans as well as gigantic overdriven tones that are bursting with pure rock power."
* A new cutaway neck heel which elegantly blends into the asymmetrical neck volute for improved upper register access and enhanced playing feel.
* A brand-new Suspension Bridge uses a screw-less mount to increase the vibration transfer, driving the top for nearly endless sustain and lively response. In a nod to our past, the Suspension Bridge retains our classic brass three-barrel design.
* A new double action truss rod adjustment wheel makes it a snap to adjust the instrument's neck relief without any special tools.
* An S-1 switch which, on this model, activates series or parallel wiring options when using both pickups for even more tonal variations. Discreetly placed atop the volume control, it engages or disengages at the tap of a finger for on-the-fly adjustments.
