Unbridled Tele Tone in a Sweet Satin Finish

The notoriety of Fender's Telecaster goes without saying, and your Fender Standard Telecaster Satin will bring you that classic Telecaster sound the world of rock has grown to love. This hot-toned axe features the instantly recognizable Telecaster body shape built with alder wood, a secure and comfy bolt-on maple neck, a rosewood fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, shielded wiring cavities, and slightly hotter Standard Tele single-coil pickups in the neck and bridge slots. This is a classic electric guitar with a few sweet modern adjustments.

Hotter Single-coil Tele Tones

Your neck and bridge Standard Tele single-coil pickups capture and project a slightly hotter tone than your typical Telecaster. You'll get more punch and drive when you crank up your distortion for a tone that slices its way through the air like a sharp knife. The control and wiring cavities on this baby are now shielded, keeping your signal clean and buzz-free.

Secure Bolt-on Maple Neck and Medium Jumbo Frets

The Standard Tele Satin's bolt-on maple neck is secure but has a nice relaxed feel to it. Maple necks tend to have a tightness to their tone, and when used with rosewood they give your telecaster more warmth and smoothness -- a welcoming and slight contrast that works nicely with your hot single-coil pickups. Your 21 medium jumbo frets rest up nicely next to your strings in a close and comfortable action.

Full-bodied Alder Tone

Alder is a classic wood for guitar bodies with a signature full-bodied sound. You get a consistently clear and strong resonance as you make your way across your fretboard, and alder also does a good job of beefing up your mids and lows without overindulging. Like your maple/rosewood neck, it's a great combo for theis Standard Telecaster Satin's hotter-sounding single-coil pickups.

An Axe for All Genres

Considering their wide spectrum of achievable tones, there's little wonder as to why Telecasters continue to be so popular across so many different genres. From mesmerizing and clear cleans to sharp and harsh distorted leads, your Standard Telecaster Satin really takes the cake for being an axe for any player of any style to own and love.

- Telecaster body shape of alder wood
- Maple bolt-on neck with rosewood fingerboard
- 21 medium jumbo frets
- Neck and bridge Standard Tele single-coil pickups
- Master volume and tone controls; three-way pickup selector switch

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Beautiful Guitar( based on regular tele"
Sound: Sound quality is awesome for its price. The sound obeys my playing well haha. It's more than capable of playing my style and all styles. In different settings the guitar can sound like a warm acoustic or a mean aggressive weapon of choice needless to say this little number kicks ass. Not really any addition needed unless yore the type that likes to mod. Seymour Duncan is good and getting a hotter pair might not be so bad if you're looking for more crunch. Feature: As with all tele's the alder wood body holds great tonality and I have huge respect for fender in the department cause every fender or at least most have the same wood composition making it reliable. Ease of Use: It can be very easy to get the sound you want for the most part just consider the full body of the guitar you know it's going to be rich and warm but with other settings and drowning on amp quality you can make it bright and have more attack as far as hard rock goes. Can't wait to put it in my peavey bandit 112! Quality: This guitar will last forever and a day if you take care of it Value: Yes it beats others by a lot for just $500 Manufacturer Support: No issues but they did end my search for a worthy guitar and the telecaster is it! The Wow Factor: This guitar is so sexy I'd make babies with it. End of story. Overall: Considering the regular standard tele and this tele have the same specs, I thought I'd comment about it. I've ordered this guitar jut recently and I simply cannot wait. Had my heart set on this guitar a little before Xmas and just now getting it. First things first since it is obvious, the colors. The colors are amazing and the ocean blue has captivated me at first sight. The satin finish is a guitar worth keeping. Now actually playing the tele I can brag about how cool this guitar is. The tele is a simple guitar for any and all players. For the price, you get a nice full body warm tone and in my opinion sounds just as good as a $1000 or more fender tele. This guitar is so versatile that to me it sends most guitars I look at to the basement. This guitar is the one for me. You can play solid blues, country, metal, punk, pop- punk ( despite what some people say ) and of course rock tunes. The fact that its design is so simple with a single volume and tone knob, it's really up to what amp and other gear you have at your disposal to make the great sound you want. Personally inlay pop punk and some classic rock and all channels on this guitar from te bridge to neck pick up sound absolutely beautiful. You can't help but appreciate this guitar. Before I was concerned about the twangy sound of it but realizing I could use that to my advantage while playing means more power to me. Stays in tune like a beast and the action is really nice making smooth and easy to play. Whether you play solo blues or like to rock out on power chords and what not, this guitar takes care of everything including its musician. Again, can't wait for the satin blue finish to come through my door and ill be waitin with open arms!

Overall: I purchased one of the last Arizona Sun Fender Standard Telecasters and it is gorgeous. Not only does it have that pure, single coil tele tone, but the materials and workmanship are top notch. I have owned much more expensive guitars, but, why? This guitar has and does it all.The satin finish is lovely, but you have to love orange, like I do. If you want a more "classic" looking tele, then this one is not for you. Its maple neck actually has some flame - cool, and the rose wood fret board has some really attractive grain to is. I'm glad that Fender didn't stain it black simply so it looks like ebony from a distance. Fret ends are finished nicely and no string rattle with its low action. Finally, it does not weigh like a ton of bricks at 8.6lbs - middle of the road for a tele. Oh, yes - setup out of the box is darn near perfect - and so is the intonation. Only thing I'm going to do is swap out for some 10s as I like a bit more beef on my trebles. Is it better than my Squire Custom Vibe Strat? That's a close call, but it does have a slightly more "quality" feel - but just by a pinch.
