Fender releases its production line Cabronita Telecaster, an
affordable version of the Cabronita Telebration series guitar,
featuring Fideli'Tron humbucking pickups.
The new Cabronita Telecaster still retains the features that
made the limited edition model so popular - a single volume
control, distinctive 3-way pickup switch, modified
The alder body version is available in two finishes - 3 color
sunburst and black, while the Ash body version is available in
White Blonde finish.
Certain changes have been made to the original to attain the
affordable pricetag, most notably the Fideli'Tron humbucking
pickups. These pickups are probabl just affordable clones of the
original TV Jones Filtertron pickup that the limited edition model
came equipped with. These Filtertron pickups are more commonly
found on hollowbody Gretsch guitars. The Fideli'Tron pickups mimic
the punchy and twang of the 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 in the
US and around £500 in the UK
