From Dream to Reality

Company owner, Teddy Gordon states, "Ever since the first official Fender® ‘Telemaster-style’ electric guitar was ordered by Make’n Music back in 2005 and delivered in 2008, this unique Jazzmaster® / Telecaster® Hybrid design became an instant classic – coveted by offset lovers everywhere. Originally conceived in a dream and brought to reality by the Fender® Custom Shop, this configuration is now officially referred to as the Offset Telecaster®. Copied by many but never before seen in the official Fender® production lineup, it’s an innovative concept and a truly original instrument. It has long been our hope to bring this traditionally ‘Custom Shop only’ offering to USA production for a more player friendly price point. We couldn’t be happier with how they turned out.”

American Standard Features + Custom Shop Upgrades

The Limited Edition Fender® Offset Telecaster® features a highly distinctive offset body shape and combines it with the clear, bell-like voice of a Custom Shop Twisted Tele single-coil pickup in the neck position and a vintage-style Custom Shop Telecaster® single-coil pickup in the bridge position. The neck features a very comfortable Modern “C” profile with a 9.5” radius and Medium Jumbo frets for incredible playability. What appears to be a typical strings through the body American Vintage Telecaster® bridge with 3 Brass Saddles is actually unique in that those 3 saddles feature adjustability for intonation on all 6 strings. The electronics include a 3-way pickup selector switch, Master Volume and No Load Tone control. To cap things off, another unique feature is a premium Swamp Ash body.
