Fender American Standard Telecaster

The Fender American Telecaster Electric Guitar is a Fender icon.

The return of the American Standard Series Tele continues Fender's tradition of commitment to the people who play Fender instruments out there in the real world. Today's American Standard Telecaster guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors, mindful of player needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, yet remaining completely true to the elements and spirit that made these instruments legendary in the first place.

American Standard Telecaster®

The look, sound and vibe of the Telecaster resonate throughout the history and soundscapes of popular music. From orchestra pits to mosh pits; small clubs to stadiums and garages to recording studios, its signature sound is everywhere. The new American Standard Telecaster still has the hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups and staggered tuning machines for playability, tone and stability, and now includes great new features including: A new bridge with improved bent-steel saddles mounted to a stamped-brass bridge plate for increased resonance and sustain. A new neck treatment—tinted for a richer presentation, with the maple or rosewood fingerboard buffed to a high gloss. The back of the neck still has that silky, comfortable satin finish. A thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance. A new Fender-exclusive SKB molded case. Two beautiful new finish options, Blizzard Pearl and Crimson Red Transparent.

Notice Product Prices, Features, Specifications and Availability Are Subject To Change Without Notice The Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar is a pro player's axe that delivers authentic Tele vibe.

American Series pickups and deluxe hardware with original '52 ash or alder body dimensions deliver more resonance and tone. The maple neck has a modern C shape with rolled edges and highly finished frets for easier playability. The detailed nut eliminates rattles and improves tuning stability. Custom staggered tuning machines eliminate the need for one of the string trees. Staggered pole pieces in the pickups provide balanced output across all strings and especially improves tone for the G-string.

The return of the American Standard Series Telecaster continues Fender's tradition of commitment to the people who play Fender instruments out there in the real world. Today's American Standard Telecaster guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors—mindful of player needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, yet remaining completely true to the elements and spirit that made these instruments legendary in the first place.

Improvements include redesigned bridges, neck and body finishes, and a Fender-exclusive high-tech molded case. Still there are the beloved hand-rolled fingerboard edges, alnico V pickups, and staggered tuning machines for tone and stability guaranteed to last a lifetime (with its limited lifetime warranty)! So make history with the redesigned American Standard!American Standard Tele® Bridge Gives sought-after tone with modern improvements (no ashtray edges, 6 saddle adjustability). Redesigned plate features a classic styled Fender stamp on chrome-plated brass. Brass and steel are the secrets to the Tele sound! Bridge Component Specifics American Standard saddles - The original vintage-style Fender bent steel adjustable saddle is one of the components that give vintage Fenders their tonal mojo'.

Fender conducted tone comparison tests, and fell in love with them all over again. They have a wider tonal range and more character many other saddles. Then Fender improved them; narrowing the spacing to afford more room (and complement the bigger frets and rolled edges), and also elongated the string slot to reduce friction and string breakage, while improving the string break angle over the primary contact point. Bridge plateThe combination of steel saddles with a brass plate harks back to the magic combination of the most sought-after vintage Tele guitars (which had steel plate/brass saddles). The plate also features two extra mounting screws to improve resonance and body contact (as well as eliminating 'squeals'), and a stylized

Fender logo to class up the instrument and nod to the design of 60s era Fenders (like Jaguar and Mustang bridges). Neck Gloss and Tint Seemingly a small or less important feature, this is a major feature. The old necks were satin all over primarily for the feel of the back of the neck. On these American Standards Fender kept the satin neck.
