Product Description

First a Broadcaster, then an Esquire -- forever a Telecaster. A guitar design with over 60 years of mass-production under its belt, the Fender Standard Telecaster has earned the badge of world's oldest solidbody electric guitar. Players of all shapes, sizes, and pedigrees call the Telecaster their own -- chicken-pickin' country superstars, fuzzed-out experimental rockers, jangle-centric pop strummers, and everyone in between. Considering the role the electric guitar has played in the formation and evolution of rock and roll, and in turn, all contemporary popular music, it's hard to think of higher praise for the Fender Standard Telecaster.

Mouth of the South

Developed by the hand of the legendary Leo Fender himself, this Telecaster is a part of Fender's Standard Series. The Mexican-made Standard Telecaster offers the Fender look, sound, and most importantly, quality, to players on a budget, allowing even the most derelict couch-surfer the opportunity to craft timeless guitar-based music.

Fender Telecaster: Past, Present, and Future

The Fender Standard Telecaster bridges the best of new advancements in guitar building with the best elements and spirit of the original design. The body, neck, and headstock silhouette remain unchanged from Leo's original historic design, and just like the Broadcaster, this Standard Telecaster features an Alder body, 2 single-coil pickups controlled by a 3-position blade selector, master volume and master tone knobs, a bolt-on 1-piece truss-rodded maple neck ( 25.5-inch scale length), a maple fretboard (9.5-inch radius), 21 frets, Chrome hardware, and a 3-ply parchment style pickguard,

The standard 6-saddle string-through-body bridge featured on this Mexican Standard Telecaster is but one of the modern touches designed to bring the Telecaster into the new millennium and beyond. Additional updates to the Fender Standard Telecaster include the modern C shape of the neck (with a satin Urethane finish, implemented to eliminate "sticky neck syndrome"), Medium Jumbo fretwire for digging deep into your note-bends, Fender/Ping sealed tuners, and 2 Hot Standard Tele single-coil pickups. Those pickups are hotter than the original, perfect for pushing tube amplifiers into creamy overdrive, and the Fender Standard Telecaster's body cavity is now shielded to prevent the inherent single-coil 60-cycle hum. The headstock also features a Fender Transition Logo, and the rest of the body is outfitted with parchment plastic parts to really tie together the theme of "the best of the new with the best of the old."

Smooth, Improved

Just like the styles of players the Tele appeals to, the Fender Standard Telecaster is available in a wide array of finishes. Paying attention to even the smallest details, Fender thoughtfully strings up every new Standard Telecaster with Fender Super 250L strings, gauged .009-.042 ready to throw over your shoulder and get on the road. If you're on the fence about which guitar will provide the versatility and quality you need to take your music to the next level, look no further than the Fender Standard Telecaster.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "LH Fender Telecaster - Own It"
Overall: Never was I EVER a fan of the Telecaster.. But one day I tried one at a pawn shop and just the way it feels sold me on it.. Action is Great! I play this guitar in a Metalcore band in drop C tuning and it sounds great.. Very diverse and light.. I've played almost 100 shows with this guitar in the past 8 months and I have never had a major problem with it.. This guitar is my primary guitar and for the price its a mind blowing piece of equipment.
