Chicago, Illinois, February 19th, 2018 - Musical instrument retailer Make’n Music announces new Limited Edition Offset Telecaster® FSR models. Due to overwhelming demand for the initial run last year, new versions with updated specifications and custom electronics have now been announced. This is an incredibly distinctive instrument that combines design elements from two iconic Fender models - The Fender® Telecaster® and the Fender® Jazzmaster®. Production is extremely limited with an initial offering of only 50 pieces per configuration.
The Limited Edition Fender® Offset Telecaster® combines a distinctive look with extraordinary features for versatile tone and playability. The pickups include a Custom Shop Broadcaster bridge pickup which has been artfully paired with a wide range-style Shawbucker in the neck position. Custom electronics with a dual 500k/250k Master Volume control ensure that each pickup retains its crisp, clear and articulate sound, while a discreetly mounted S1 switch in the Master Tone control splits the neck pickup for a variety of humbucking and single coil sounds. Use the 3-way pickup selector to achieve everything from raunchy Tele spank and twang to sparkling, almost acoustic-like clean tones. The neck is a very comfortable modern “Deep C” profile with a 9.5” radius and 22 narrow-tall frets for exceptional playability. What appears to be a typical string through the body American Vintage Telecaster® bridge is actually hot-rodded with three compensated American Professional Brass Saddles for improved intonation across all six strings.
Originally conceived in a dream and brought to reality by the Fender® Custom Shop, the first “Telemaster-style” electric guitars were ordered by Make’n Music. Company owner Teddy Gordon states, “This unique Jazzmaster® / Telecaster® Hybrid design has become a true classic – coveted by offset lovers everywhere. Last year Fender granted our wish to bring this traditionally ‘Custom Shop only’ offering to USA production at a more player friendly price point. This year we are excited to offer a second generation of the Limited Edition Offset Telecaster® with updated American Professional Series specifications, custom electronics and additional colors. We couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.”
This Make’n Music exclusive Limited Edition run of the American Professional Offset Telecaster, is available now for pre-order for $1599.99 each. Customers can reserve their own piece of history now with a deposit of $159. The guitars are expected to start shipping May, 2018. First come first served!
