Fender 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.
