From the garage to the club to the stadium, the left-handed 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.

Comments about Fender American Standard Telecaster Left-Handed Electric Guitar with Maple Fingerboard:
I played one all day at the GC, then traded in my other Tele for this one. I got the 3 tone sunburst because to my ears it sounded a little warmer. Probably because the body is select swamp ash on the sunburst models. Anyway, Im a weekend gigging country chicken picker for the last 30 years and I can tell you Fender killed it with this guitar. First off the "gearheads" are gonna talk this one down because Fender strayed a little off the vintage tele path with this one. But IMO they made it better all the way around. The belly cut is a very nice addition. Its barely noticable to the looker but when you sit down to practice OMG it feels so good you wont put it down. The pick ups are spot on. The Broadcaster pup is what it is, and thats a very very good thing. Everything Telecaster is known for with no noise. The real surprise is the Strat like Twisted Tele Custom Shop neck pick up. Its more open and clear, no vintage muddy sound here. The balance is so good between the Broadcaster and the Twisted Tele its a dream setup. You dont have to roll back the highs on the bridge and then roll back the volume on the neck just to keep your sound even now. They are so well balanced you just switch and play like magic and nothing is missing in the tone. The middle setting with both pups is worth the money by itself. Now the neck on this thing is thin. A modern players version of Telecaster for sure. Its smooth as glass and ultra fast. After 30 minutes alone with this thing and you will be in love. Craftsmanship on this neck and frets is as good as Ive seen ever! It really feels and sounds like custom shop guitar work for production guitar price. No dainty little vintage guitar case either. This is a gigging players guitar and Fender sends it out with their version of an ATA flight case. Yes its plastic, bulky, and ugly but its built like a tank to keep your new baby safe. Its way over built so you should be able to get plenty of milage out of it too. Soo If your looking for a great left handed tele grab this one. The quality of mine is a 10 all the way across the board so you cannot go wrong with this Tele. Thank you Fender for giving Lefty's a great guitar and thank you GC for making them affordable.....Play on ;-0
