A review & demo of my 2017 Exotic Series Fender Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster. A departure from Fender’s traditional tone wood choices, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster enhances the traditional Tele style with the elegant look of a Malaysian Blackwood top. Strong and dense, Malaysian Bblackwood has plenty of sustain, perfect for soaring lead lines and raucous rhythm work.
For authentic, vintage-inspired tone, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is loaded with two JP-90 single-coil pickups. Topped by 22 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5”-radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining flat enough for wide bends.
The custom string-through-body short-plate Tele bridge features compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation along the entire length of the neck. With its authentic, original-era sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is a rare, inspiring example of Fender’s world-class craftsmanship. The Malaysian Blackwood 90 Telecaster is part of Fenders 2017 Exotic Wood Collection of guitars.
