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 Rosewood 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.

      Great guitar

      Comments about Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

      I play a few gigs a year and otherwise jam with friends. The guitar is what you would expect for an american standard tele. The fit and finish are great. The fret ends are nice and smooth and finish is flawless except for one small spot on the side of the neck. The neck pickup sounds great as well as the middle position. The bridge pickup is a little thin sounding for what I play so I will eventually upgrade to a mini humbucker. I got a fantastic deal on this guitar during the black Friday sale.

      My only complaint is the set up. There is a little bit of buzz going on on the E and G strings. I'm going to give it a set up and put a light top heavy bottom set of strings on there and it should be good to go.

        Great guitar that needed work when it arrived

        Comments about Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

        I bought this as an open box item. As such I didn't expect perfection. Surprisingly, the esthetics were about perfect. The set up, however, was awful. As if no one actually looked at the guitar after it came back. Slight neck bow as well. These problems were easily fixed and it was still a good deal. But it was all kind of a PITA. I expect to have to tinker with guitars when I order them mail order however I do expect them to be playable out of the box.

          Comments about Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

          Holy smoke! I haven't purchased anything new in many years. I use to have a nice American made Tele years ago.... I was hell bent on getting another one! I recently underwent open heart surgery and a surgery on my right arm. I couldn't wait to get out of the hospital and buy a new Tele! This guitar is just beautiful. My father was a carpenter, so I appreciate good wood! It has a classic, natural look to it. I compared this to the $800 Baja Tele, and this one looks much nicer. Better hardware, finish, etc. I tried a Maple neck and it was great too, but the Rosewood is nice! Since Guitar Center only had one of these, it stood out.
          Super smooth neck. I have large hands and I've always liked the feel of these. I play everything from rock to country. This guitar is very versatile for different feels/styles. The salesman at the Pasadena, CA store, Patrick, was great. Actually got me an extra 15% off this. The hardshell case is nice, definitely made for travel. I'm very happy with Guitar Center for working with me on getting this. It will definitely help me in my recovery!

                Comments about Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

                The 2016 American Standard Telecaster is the way to go if you're in the market for a new Telecaster. I love the playability, the tone, the finish, the quality, the workmanship... I just love it all. I could not be happier with this telecaster. I have a 60th anniversary American Standard with a maple neck and I got this one to complement it. So now I have a modern Telecaster and a traditional one. I couldn't be happier with my Telecaster situation. I looked at the Elites and didn't like some of the changes that were made to the model, so I was glad to find the American Standard in Natural finish with a rosewood neck. Simple, classic, but it has the custom shop pickups and many nice features. Buy it if you want a real telecaster. Compare it to the MIM or other cheaper ones and I think you'll agree that it's worth the extra $$$ to get the real thing.

                Fender perfection

                Comments about Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

                Ok. I played this guitar in the store and was in love. GC didn't have the color I wanted in stock, so they ordered it and shipped it to my house. It showed up in a few days and had some serious flaws in the finish. I called the Manager Chris at GC and he ordered me a new unit direct from fender. This one came in absolutely perfect!! This guitar plays itself. Pure Fender tone and a high quality instrument. The guys at guitar center were awesome and always take care of me.. Couldn't be happier.. This guitar is a serious tone monster...beautiful clean and awesome classic rock sounds as well.. Not built for metal heads though. Can't go wrong with American Fender quality.

                Comments about Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar with Rosewood Fingerboard:

                I purchased a 2015 Fender American Standard Telecaster in Transparent Crimson Red with the Maple finerboard approx 1month ago. After this past month of heavy gigging 3-4 times a week, I could not be happier. I'll admit I'm a usually a Gibson SG man but I finally took the leap to the Fender side and I am very happy I did. This Telecaster is exactly what you expect a Telecaster to be. The neck is very playable and the pickups are crisp and clear. The mew Crimson Red finish is stunning. I'm not going to pack away my Gibsons anytime soon but this guitar was an overdue addition to the arsenal. I'm really looking foward to taking this guitar in the studio come at the end of the summer. I definitely regret not buy this guitar sooner...
