Overview

From the garage to the club to the stadium, the American Standard Telecaster is the same great best-selling go-to guitar it always has been, and now it's upgraded with a comfortable new body contour and classic-sounding Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele (neck) and Broadcaster (bridge) pickups. The latest incarnation of a truly timeless classic, it rings more fully, brightly and crisply than ever.

The look, sound and vibe of the Telecaster resonates throughout the history of popular music. From orchestra pits to mosh pits, small clubs to stadiums and garages to recording studios, its signature sound is everywhere. The American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard has hand-rolled fingerboard edges, Custom Shop pickups, staggered tuning machines, improved bridge with bent steel saddles mounted to a stamped-brass bridge plate for increased resonance and sustain, tinted neck, high-gloss maple fingerboard, satin-finished neck back, thinner finish undercoat that lets the body breathe and improves resonance, and Fender Tolex case.

Wasn't sure what the wood grain pattern would look like as GC does not offer a guitar gallery to visualize the actual ax you are purchasing. I must say I was pleasantly surprise when I opened the case and found this beauty looking back at me. Absolutely gorgeous! Feels, plays, sounds, and looks amazing!

You got to love a Tele. Mine plays good, feels good, sounds good. Love the comfort of the Tele shape and weight. However, got to question Fender for some quality control on the fretwork. Should I need to get a few frets re-dressed on a brand new guitar?

            Played Perfectly right out of the box and stays in tune. I was going to change the strings but there was no need as it sounds and plays great. The strap and cord were bonus extras.

                  Wish that the store had notified me when it arrived and that a tech had gone over it as it needed a bit of tweaking.
                  The instruments otherwise is great!
