FENDER 1983 USA TELE ELITE, TEAL

This is an unusal model, with lots of non-traditional features, and due to being  made for only a couple of years, relatively  rare.

The Fender Elite Series was introduced by new employee Dan Smith in 1983 in an attempt to both update the models on offer and also to show that they were capable of producing top quality guitars.

The series was discontinued in 1984 (some sources say 1985) once CBS sold Fender.

 

The Elite Telecaster had a heavy cast 6-saddle top-loading bridge, noise-cancelling pickups with alnico 2 magnets, active TBX and MDX tone controls, knobs with rubber inserts for easy gripping, and a 3-way pickup selector switch.
