Select instruments for select individuals. Introducing Fender Select series guitars and basses-true players’ instruments that put more than six decades of Fender experience and expertise on outstandingly appointed display and bring a wealth of high-end features and elegant design options to discerning musicians everywhere. With choice tone woods, figured tops, strikingly beautiful finishes, figured and quartersawn maple necks with compound-radius fretboards, specially voiced Fender Select pickups that deliver masterful tone, and other first-rate features, the U.S.-made Select Series puts Fender’s top-line best in capable hands-yours.
The Fender Select Carved Maple Top Telecaster is an elegantly crafted and sonically superior take on our first legendary guitar model, with a stunning Amber gloss-lacquer finish on a lightweight empress body with a carved flame maple top. Its modern “C” shaped flame maple neck has a Bi-Flex™ truss rod system for rock-solid stability, a satin lacquer finish and rear-headstock “Fender Select” medallion. The smooth-playing compound radius flame maple fretboard (9.5”-14”) has 22 medium jumbo frets and stylish black pearloid position inlays. Crisp, clear signature sound comes from Fender Select Telecaster single-coil neck and bridge pickups with three-way switching and a no-load tone control that delivers the natural uncolored sound of the bridge pickup when dimed.
Other premium features include knurled chrome knobs, American Telecaster bridge with new American Standard bent steel saddles and stamped brass plate, deluxe staggered cast/sealed locking tuners and nickel-chrome hardware. Custom G&G Fender Select case, strap, cable and polishing cloth included.

The playability and tone of this guitar are outstanding. Fit and finish are nothing short of custom shop quality. The neck profile and modern frets make for a fast easy playing low action. I literally find my fingers flying across it compared to other guitars that I own. The pickups sound great in all positions and the "No Load" tone control provides full range of the tone control without any washout. This is a break from tradition in the right direction.

Fender really went over the top with this Select Series Telecaster. The carved maple top is absolutely gorgeous and the Empress wood they used to make the body makes this guitar super light and sound fantastic. The modern C shaped neck is very comfortable and the specially voiced select pickups work perfectly with this set-up. I own a Fender Telecaster American Deluxe and you can really tell that the Fender Telecaster Select is a step above and you get the best components available for the seven hundred dollars more that I paid. It was totally worth it. If you are looking for a guitar that sounds as good as it looks then look no further. This Fender Select Series Telecaster is not going to be leaving my hands very much. If you are interested in buying this guitar I recommend checking out Wildwood Guitars because they can give you a great price and offer exceptional customer service as well. Enjoy this beauty because in 25 years it is going to be a classic.
