Fender American Special Telecaster Charcoal Frost

Brand New

Description & Specs

Enjoy the U.S-made Fender quality of the American Special Telecaster in a CME exclusive Charcoal Frost finish!

The original go-to guitar for that country-style chicken pickin’, the Telecaster gets a thoroughly American upgrade with two Texas Special single-coil pickups and Greasebucket circuitry. Add to that a modern “C” neck profile and jumbo frets and the Fender American Special Telecaster is more than enough to make us stand at attention.

About Fender American Special Series:

Founded by Leo Fender in 1938 as Fender’s Radio Service, what is now the Fender Musical Instruments Corporation began making electric guitars and amplifiers in 1945. The rest, as they say, is history. Creator of the world’s first mass-produced, and by far most popular, solid-bodied electric, Fender is now the world’s leading guitar manufacturer.

Quality players play quality instruments, and nothing speaks to the virtues of American-made quality like the Fender American Special series. For all players, the American Special series represents an invitation to participate in the storied heritage of the American solid-body electric as exemplified by models like the Stratocaster, Telecaster, and Jazz and Precision basses. American components, American hardware, American sound–made nowhere else but here. That’s American Special.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, fill out the Return Request form below, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback. Please let us know your thoughts! If you have any questions, we’re here for you!
