Limited Edition Raphael Saadiq Telecaster®
$2,399.99

Introducing the Limited-Edition Raphael Saadiq Telecaster®. Guitarist, bassist, multi-platinum producer and Grammy winning artist Raphael Saadiq built his reputation on the keen vision and vintage timbres that power his potent productions – Like Raphael’s music, this timeless model seamlessly blends retro and contemporary elements to astounding effect.

Saadiq’s requisite appointments – ash body, maple neck and slab rosewood fingerboard with clay dots, vintage-tall frets and bone nut – keep the tone, look and feel planted firmly in the Fender wheelhouse. The old-school ’59 “C”-shape neck and vintage-spec hardware harmonize with the flash paint job, distinctive black binding, custom-tooled graphic pickguard design and flatter 9.5” fingerboard radius to give the Raphael Saadiq Telecaster the best of both worlds. Custom Raphael Saadiq Single-Coil Tele® pickups up the ante for tones that will inspire, enchant and transport you to your own instant vintage dimension. Deluxe hardshell case included.
