Fender Cabronita Telecaster

Fender unveils its production line Cabronita Telecaster, an affordable version of the Cabronita Telebration series guitar, featuring Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups.

Last year, in celebration of the Telecaster's 60th anniversary, Fender released the Limited Edition Cabronita Telecaster which proved to be a hit among Tele fans. This year, they follow up on its success with a more affordable production model.

The new Cabronita Telecaster retains the elements that made the limited edition successful - a simplistic single volume control, distinctive 3-way pickup switch and modified pickguard. All these unusual takes are incorporated into the familiar and elegant shape of the Telecaster.

The Alder body version of the guitar is available in two finishes - 3 color sunburst and black, while the Ash body version is available in White Blonde finish. Aside from the above mentioned distinctions, the body retains the familiar single cutaway design of telecaster. The neck and fretboard is made of maple, featuring a modern "C" shape. It has a scale length of 25.5" and comes with 22 medium jumbo frets.

To achieve affordability, certain aspects were stripped down, most notable of which is the change to Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups. These pickups are probably affordable clones of the original TV Jones Filtertron pickup that the limited edition model had. These Filtertron pickups are usually found on hollowbody Gretsch guitars, so it was a welcome surprising when the limited edition Cabronita Telecaster had them equipped. The Fideli'Tron pickups are meant to mimic the punchy and "twangy" grunt found on classic Filtertron pickups.

Chrome hardware rounds up the features of the MIM Cabronita Telecaster, with a strings-through-body hardtail bridge and Fender standard tuning machines.

The Limited Edition version was priced at $2,499, the new Fender Cabronita Telecaster is set to retail for only $699.99.

More information and detailed specification is available from Fender.
