The American Standard Telecaster serves up generous helpings of sound and style with a set of fantastic upgrades. For the first time ever, the American Standard wields the same Fender Custom Shop pickups used on some of the highest-end custom models as well as a form-fitting body contour. Combined with a full range of improved hardware and finish options, the American Standard takes the Telecaster to new heights of tone and playability.

High-end Pickups, Classic Tone

The American Standard Telecaster includes a set of Fender Custom Shop pickups with a Twisted Tele at the neck and a Broadcaster at the bridge. These powerful single-coils deliver copious amounts of classic Telecaster tone with crisp, bold highs and warm, smooth mids. The old-school Broadcaster pickup in the bridge position captures the vintage style of the first generation Telecasters with all the twang that made it an instant country sensation. The Twisted Tele pickup at the neck compliments the Broadcaster with a broader, warmer sound to round out the sonic palette. Use both pickups in tandem and achieve a balanced tonal character ideal for classic-rock and blues.

Upgraded Hardware and Seamless Playability

In addition to the updated electronics, the edition features a form-fitting body contour on the back of the body similar to what you'd find on a Strat. The neck uses the modern C-shaped profile and finished with hand-rolled edges compliments of the masters at Fender's Corona, California facility. This version uses sturdy rosewood for the fingerboard providing the complex tone and delightful feel preferred by many Tele aficionados. Also for the release, the bridge and undercoating have been redesigned to improved resonance and sustain through the guitar.

Features:

- Fender Custom Shop pickups: Twisted Tele at the neck and Broadcaster at the bridge
- Enhanced bridge for better resonance and stability
- Thinner undercoating to improve resonance
- Comfortable maple neck with modern C-shaped profile and rolled edges
- Ergonomic back contour
- Included hardshell case

Like the rest of the American Standard series, the Telecaster introduces an incredible set of new features while retaining all the timeless qualities of the original Fender design. With high-end Custom Shop pickups, improved hardware, and a sleek new body contour, the American Standard is one of the best Telecasters yet. zZounds is an authorized dealer of Fender products.

Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Right on"
Sound: It has a sonic signature all its own. Everybody knows the classic Tele sound: it's here, and so are clear but mellow rhythm tones. The "Twisted Tele" neck pickup is fantastic. Middle position is all kinds of beautiful, as it should be on a good Tele. I should add that the bridge pickup (Custom Shop Broadcaster) has a great character by itself, too. Tele twang, sure, and a piercing treble that somehow isn't icepicky. Hard to describe, beautiful to hear. Feature: Everything here is top-notch, though very simple. Love the pickups, as described above, and the classic, basic controls and layout. Ease of Use: Out of the box, it's probably the most playable guitar I've ever bought, and it sounds great with zero modifications. Intonation was perfect from the factory. The neck is super-comfortable--not too thick or too thin, and the satin neck finish and rolled fingerboard edges contribute to the feeling of "fast" playability. The body contour is a nice touch, making the guitar very comfortable to play whether sitting or standing. Stays in tune through hard bending. Quality: I have to admit, I was really surprised at how nice this guitar is. I have a few other American-made guitars (from the other big-name manufacturer), all more expensive than this one, and every single one of them came with some annoying flaw that should've been caught by quality control (paint, fretwork, flaky electronics). I've been playing this guitar for a couple weeks now and have inspected it all over, in and out. It's basically perfect. The only issue I've had is a faint harmonic tone above the nut when I play an open G string, which is somewhat common on Fender guitars without a second string tree. In this case, I fixed it by winding some extra string around the tuning peg when I changed strings. On the whole, very fine craftsmanship. It feels, sounds, and looks like a much more expensive guitar. Side note: the case that comes with this guitar is superb. Value: One of the best values going. Fender really got it right with this iteration of the American Standard, and the price is sweet. Can't lose. Manufacturer Support: N/A Overall: Just about perfect.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "2012 Fender American Standard Telecaster"
Overall: As always, zZounds delivered prompt and courtious service. Had my guitar in two days and I. Perfect condition. Now, for the guitar. Amazing. First year ever for the belly cut. If you are a strat fan and have always been drawn to the tele? Now's your chance. Unbelievably comfortable to play. The work that was done on this guitar at the California custom shop shines through, from the hand rolled edges of the neck to the broadcaster bridge and twisted tele pickup in the neck make this a one of a kind very special instrument. Even comes with a very sweet case. Want to buy another soon. The sound is sonic with the delta tone circut and the bridge is full of sustain with the new design. The finish is amazing as well, not heavy but light where it needs to be. Like driving a new car. This guitar screams. Get yourself one. Tons of soul.
Style of Music: All the above. All stes of music are beautiful.
