Shipping Information

Presenting the Fender James Burton Signature Series Telecaster, with Maple Fingerboard, with custom Red Paisley Flames finish.

An original Telecaster master still going strong, guitarist James Burton influenced generations of rock guitar royalty with his perfectly phrased late-'50s/early-'60s Tele® work with Ricky Nelson, and his later stints with Elvis Presley, Emmylou Harris, Elvis Costello and many others only furthered his revered elder-statesman status.

His was the first signature Telecaster model, and today's James Burton Telecaster is as fiery as ever, with three pickups, special switching, gold hardware, gorgeous paisley-flame finishes and more.

Highlights of the James Burton Tele include:
  • Blue and red paisley flame finishes
  • Vintage-style “U”-shaped neck profile
  • Three specially designed James Burton pickups
  • Five-way “Strat-o-Tele” pickup switch
  • S-1™ switch
  • Vintage-style strings-thru-body hardtail bridge

BASSWOOD BODY: A basswood body contributes to a defined sound that cuts through a mix well, with nice warmth and midrange and even a slightly growling tone.

’60S "U" NECK PROFILE: The James Burton Telecaster features a vintage-style ’60s "U" neck profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) that feels fuller to the fretting hand than more modern neck profiles, with a little more mass for improved tone and sustain.

THREE SPECIAL DESIGN BURTON SINGLE COILS: This fiery signature Telecaster produces fiery tone from its three single-coil pickups, all specially voiced in accordance with Burton’s specifications.

FIVE-WAY "STRAT-O-TELE" SWITCHING: As a Telecaster with three pickups rather than the traditional two, this model features special five way "Strat-o-Tele" switching that delivers the neck pickup alone, the bridge pickup alone, and three different parallel dual-pickup combinations.

S-1™ SWITCH: For even more tonal versatility, engaging the S-1 switch on the James Burton Telecaster introduces series circuitry for pickup switch positions two and four.

HARD-TAIL STRATOCASTER BRIDGE: For rock-solid intonation and tuning stability, the James Burton Telecaster features a gold-plated American Vintage string-through-body hardtail Stratocaster bridge with six saddles.
