Since its introduction in the early '50s, the Telecaster has been held in high regard by guitarists of all generations and styles. Combining vintage features with modern appointment, this Tele delivers legendary tones with unrivalled versatility that has made it such a timeless classic.
The body has been shaped to the classic single-cutaway Tele' body profile, featuring smooth curves that make it comfortable to play. Alder has been employed as the body tonewood, which capably delivers balanced tones with a forceful energy. The dense yet lightweight alder resonates well to ensure this Tele' has bags of sustain. The body is completed in a cool black finish.
Fitted to the body is a sleek and supple maple neck, carved to the Modern "C" profile, a very comfortable oval-shaped design that offers smooth playability. Married to the neck is a maple fingerboard, sporting 21 medium-jumbo frets that are easy to navigate thanks to the dot position inlays.
The Fender Standard Telecaster is equipped with Standard single-coil Tele' pickups in the bridge and neck position, and controlled by a Master Volume, Master Tone, and 3-position blade switching system. The pickups translate the richness of the alder and maple/maple combination exquisitely. Whatever style of music you play, the Fender Standard Tele' is well equipped to cover everything with ease.
A standard 6-saddle strings-thru-body bridge provides a seamless connection between the strings and body for improved intonation and sustain. The standard-cast sealed tuning machines uphold tuning integrity accurately, so that no matter how much you rock out, you can rest assured your Tele' will play and sound perfect throughout.
