The 2012 release of the Fender American Standard Telecaster model brings with it a new, comfortable body contour alongside an addition that brings it back to its roots, with a Fender Custom Shop Broadcaster pickup in the bridge position, and a Twisted Tele pickup in the neck, giving a Tele that is brighter and crisper than ever.
Classic Fender Shape, with Benefits
The 2012 Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar utilises alder for its body and keeps the classic shape on the top, long-loved by Tele fans, while bringing added comfort to the back of the guitar with a new swooping contour.
Supremely Playable Maple Neck
Bolted into the body of the Fender American Standard Telecaster is a supremely playable maple neck, harnessing a modern "C" profile. Atop this rests a 22 medium-jumbo fretted, 9.5" maple fingerboard with dot inlays, lying between a synthetic bone nut and a 6-saddle American Standard strings-through-body bridge.
Broadcaster and Twisted
The Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar is loaded with a Custom Shop single-coil Broadcaster pickup in the bridge, to give the vintage sound of the Tele’s former incarnation, while a Custom Shop "Twisted" Tele single-coil is set at the neck. The Twisted has been designed to give a higher output, for a beefier sound whenever you need it.
The pickups of the Fender American Standard Telecaster 2012 are selectable with the usual 3-position blade, but alongside the master volume control is a master Delta (no-load) tone control.
Along with its usual function this tone knob also has the added benefit of being excluded from the circuitry completely by turning it 10, to allow the pure tone of the pickup to come through.
Ensuring your new Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar stays in tip-top condition for as long as possible it comes supplied with its own hard case with a form-fitting internal cavity that will stop it from moving around when being transported.
Also included are: a cable, strap, and polishing cloth, all to make sure your playing experience remains at its most enjoyable.
