Fender Relaunches the Boxer Telecaster HH
Like its sibling, the Boxer Strat, this Tele boasts hot humbucking pickups and a TBX Treble Bass Expander tone control.
A month and change after its relaunch of the late 80s-era Boxer Stratocaster HH, Fender has added to the rebooted Boxer line with the announcement of the Boxer Telecaster HH.
Like its Stratocaster sibling, the Japanese-made Boxer Tele features a basswood body and a Medium “C”-shaped maple neck boasting a 12”-radius rosewood fingerboard outfitted with 22 Jumbo frets.
It also shares the same Boxer series high-output humbucking pickups as its Strat sibling, with the same master volume control that can be coil-split with a dedicated toggle switch.
Additionally, the Strat's TBX Treble Bass Expander tone control – which allows for additional treble, presence, bass, and output once you move past the standard tonal options found in positions 1 through 5 – can also be found on the Tele.
Visual touches on the Tele include a black headstock and black hardware, while other features on the guitar include a six-saddle hardtail bridge and Gotoh tuning machines.
The Fender Boxer Telecaster HH is available now – in Torino Red and Inca Silver finishes – for $1,199.
