The best keeps on getting better
The Fender Telecaster is a guitar that needs no introduction. It has been, and remains the go-to choice thanks to its unique shape and sound. This incarnation, the 2012 American Standard Telecaster, adds a new body contour and custom-shop pickups adding extra comfort and an even snappier, crisper tone than ever before.
As is tradition, the Fender 2012 American Standard Telecaster comes with a body crafted from Alder. This comes with a much thinner undercoat that allows for more resonance and thus improving the fundamental tone. The body is then finished in urethane for a life-long clean look.
The neck of the 2012 American Standard Tele is made using high quality maple. This is shaped to a modern "C" profile. This is combined with the 9.5" radius, rosewood fingerboard. Containing 22 medium-jumbo frets, positional dot inlays, the satin urethane finished neck offers that classic feel that has made the Telecaster so popular.
Combinations of classic winning formulas with new technologies can result in some jaw-dropping results and the 2012 American Standard Telecaster wins here also! The addition of a custom shop single-coil broadcaster in the bridge position and a custom shop "twisted" single-coil pickup in the neck position offers a huge, full, bright and snappy tone that is quite frankly staggering!
For total control of your tone, the 2012 American Standard Tele comes with master volume, master delta tone control (no-load), and a 3 position pickup switch.
Other appointments that make the Fender 2012 American Standard Telecaster shine include a 6-saddle American standard strings-through-body Tele bridge with bent steel saddles and a stamped brass plate, deluxe staggered cast tuning machines, knurled flat-top chrome control knobs and a 3-ply parchment pick-guard.
The Fender 2012 American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar has managed to re-write the rules using a mix of its iconic past and new technologies. The result is a guitar that you can treasure for life that will sing with all the power and passion you could ever hope for.
