Overview

Inspired by the Pacific Ocean, the lustrous FSR Standard Telecaster HH Sea Foam Pearl is a tribute to the Telecaster guitar’s origin in California. With its unique aesthetic style, this is the perfect instrument for the stage—the one-of-a-kind finish shines under the spotlight with the glow of a moonlight ocean. Its exceptional style, thick voice and easy playability are sure to please those who like their music like the sea—mysterious and deep.

Powered by a pair of chrome-covered humbucking pickups, this Telecaster has a slightly thicker, deeper voice than usual, while retaining authentic Fender note clarity and articulation. Master volume and tone controls, along with a three-way blade pickup switch sculpt the pickup’s voice for titanic waves of sound that can be shaped to match any musical genre.

The comfortable modern “C”-shaped neck is comfortable during long playing sessions while the 9.5”-radius rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets provides a easy, familiar playing feel that handles chords and melodic playing with ease. A 6-saddle string-through-body hardtail bridge provides singing sustain along with accurate intonation and rock-solid tuning stability.

The warm, rich look of the fingerboard contrasts beautifully with the crisp FSR Sea Foam Pearl finish over an alder body. Other aesthetic touches include chrome hardware, skirted control knobs and a dual-wing string tree. A study in restrained elegance, the FSR Standard Telecaster HH Sea Foam Pearl is a gorgeous, luminescent addition to any player’s collection.

Awesome guitar. Stays in tune surprisingly well with stock nut and tuning keys. The body contour is a great addition to an MIM tele. I did change the bridge saddles to modern block ones (stock saddles are the the bent style), put a Tusq nut in and put a Duncan JB pickup in the bridge, but none of these "upgrades" were remotely necessary. This thing is good to go as it is. I own 2 Gibsons, a standard single-coil tele and a Schecter, and this tele is my current go-to. Feels great, sounds great, looks great.

    Comments about Fender Special Edition HH Maple Fingerboard Standard Telecaster:

    So ive played guitar for a little over a year and learned on an epiphone les paul 100. I enjoyed this guitar but I wanted to upgrade; for motivation purposes and because I found for the style of music I was interested in learning. Anyway I went to guitar center with a telecaster in mind and had liked the color but was indecisive. After playing a couple and figuring out what features I liked I decided to order this one offline instead of purchasing one they had in the store (mainly for the color) but also because I wanted a sanded neck. I was unsure of how the pickups would sound and honestly took a gamble.
    But it payed off! the color is awesome and shows way better in person. There is boatloads of tone which you would expect from a tele, paired with the modern bridge and humbucks it sounds great.
    Long story short my friend who plays an American strat came over and played this thing, he loved it and thought it was the 1600 special edition American telecaster, once I told him I paid 600 his jaw dropped and said he cant tell the difference.

        Comments about Fender Special Edition HH Maple Fingerboard Standard Telecaster:

        I mainly play Les Pauls, but have always liked Tele's. In fact, my first good guitar was a Tele. This one has a nice C-shaped neck that I've always found very comfortable. It has a beautiful shade of seafoam green that almost looks fluorescent in dim light. It's not an obnoxious color, but it definitely stands out.

        Now on to the important stuff: TONE. A Les Paul gives you a certain fullness and warmth that is particularly noticeable in rhythm playing, but also in single string stuff. This is NOT a Les Paul. It is brighter and more articulate than most LP's that I've owned and that's too many to count. It is brighter, but in a pleasant way. It is not ice picky, like I find in the Fender Atomic humbuckers. They are more like the Wide Range humbuckers found in the '72 reissue Tele's. There are some outstanding harmonic overtones with this guitar. Not to sound like Joe Dirt, but I'm a rocker dude and to get the really spanky single coil stuff (that I don't play) you should probably look at a different Tele. I mean, you can get the twangy stuff, but single would be better.

        Just one negative: Fender, can you please at least include a cheap gig bag? I mean, charge me an extra $20 and include it already!

        For the money, this is a well built value of a guitar. You would have no problem gigging with it, depending on your musical style I found a nice set up out of the box, belly cut, and the price was certainly good. I don't think anyone would be disappointed with this guitar.

        With this special edition Telecaster, Fender has outdone themselves. Play-ability is superb, fit and finish is flawless and with this particular model you get the belly-cut body as well. A first for a MIM telecaster that I am aware of. I will upgrade the pickups, although they perform adequately, and I will add locking tuners. At this price point the quality and value is absolutely astounding.

          Great guitar right out of the box. Different enough from my other two single coil Telecasters. Incredible sound. I stayed up all night playing it. The finish is to die for. I do not regret buying this guitar. GET ONE! And GC backs up everything!

                This guitar is great looking and plays very nicely. It makes a very good all around player. The only thing I didn't like so much is the humbucker in the neck position is a little muddy sounding without some major eq work. But in the combo position and in the bridge position it sounds superb. I forsee me using this guitar for years to come, it just feels right and the look is unique but not tacky in my opinion.

                  This guitar looks and sounds incredible not to mention feels great too. Good output from picks (might swap them for duncans eventually). I honestly can't put it down. My only issue is the first one I got was defective out of box meaning Fenders factory did not test or inspect it at all even though people signed off on it as inspected. I sent them an email to inform them of the error and they weren't very helpful or very sorry for the condition I received the guitar in. Mind you there was no damaged caused from shipping and it did not sit at guitar centers warehouse for awhile. Anyway, other than that I love it and everyday I can't wait to get home and play it.

                    I always wanted a Telecaster, and this was an awesome choice. My style of music varies, and so far this guitar has proven that it can play almost every genre.... my choice is metal. I'm used to 24 frets, but 22 will do. The humbuckers sound great, and was blown away by the time. The color is insane (have to see it in person ) .Definitely a great but. I look forward to my next Telecaster.

                      I bought this guitar because I was looking for something with humbuckers. Being a Fender guy I just couldn't get comfortable playing a Gibson. This tele also has the belly cut making it very comfortable to play. Finish and setup were spot on.
