MAHOGANY BODY WITH BOUND BOOKMATCHED MAPLE TOP
Refined and elegant, The Troublemaker Tele features a resonant mahogany body capped by a maple top with cream binding.

LACQUER FINISH
The nitrocellulose lacquer finish lets the body breathe with its true tonal character and also ages and wears in a distinctively personal way.

ADJUSTO-MATIC BRIDGE WITH VINTAGE-STYLE TREMOLO
For ideal string placement and tuning stability, we included an Adjusto-Matic bridge along with a vintage-style stop tailpiece.

SHAWBUCKER HUMBUCKING PICKUPS
The Shawbucker open-coil humbucking pickup delivers unprecedented tonal dimension, with more overtones, snarling mids and balanced volume.

MODERN PLAYABILITY
Combining a modern 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard with narrow-tall frets enhances the playing feel while making it easier to bend notes without fretting out.

BONE NUT
A string nut fashioned from bone contributes to superior tone and performance, as well as being an authentic original-era Fender design element.
