From the fantastic new Magnificent 7 series of guitars, Fender proudly introduce the Limited American Standard Telecaster with a matching painted headstock. This limited edition American Standard Tele draws much influence from the historic “custom colour” models, hence its stylish appearance with the matching colour headstock. The Telecaster retains its instantly recognisable body shape and produces a sonorous tone.
Like many Telecasters, this Magnificent 7 American Standard model is constructed using alder tonewood, with a cut in the belly of the guitar to relieve some of the weight for a more comfortable feel. The limited edition American Standard Telecaster retains the classic double cutaways in the body, allowing you to effortlessly explore your way along the neck. Alder not only has a great range of sonic attributes, but it takes on its colour with finesse. To protect the colour of the guitar, it is given a gloss polyurethane layer, giving it that smooth finish.
The Fender Magnificent 7 Limited Edition American Standard is fitted with a maple neck with a “C” profile and satin urethane finish at the back for a sleek playing feel. The use of maple in the neck helps the guitar to produce a bright, clear tone in conjunction with the solid construction of the alder body. A “limited edition” neck plate is also included as a unique feature.
Married to the neck is a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard, each fret is of a medium jumbo size, giving you space to play. White pearloid dot inlays decorate the frets to guide you along with confidence. As the American Standard Telecaster has the double cutaway in the body, you can easily reach the upper frets should you want to hit those higher notes.
AMERICAN VINTAGE ‘58 PICKUPS
It’s easy to see why Fender have fitted the American Vintage ‘58 pickups to the Magnificent 7 Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster. These single-coil pickups are wax potted, and provide a direct, crystal clear sound output, and as they are powered by Alnico 5 magnets they have a dynamic response and lively tone.
This limited edition American Standard Tele is equipped with Master Volume and Master No-Load Tone controls, enabling you to shape your sound to suit your playing style. The control knobs have knurled flat tops, feeling easy enough to adjust. A 3-position pickup switch blade allows you to alter between or combine the neck and bridge Vintage ‘58 pickups for a vast array of tones.
HARDWARE AND FINISH
A premium feature of the American Standard Telecaster is its painted headstock, matching the body colour. The headstock has a gloss face with a beautiful colouring, offering a simple yet eye-catching aesthetic. The headstock is fitted with standard cast, sealed staggered tuning machines, allowing you to retune your strings with complete accuracy.
