I own a Gibson Les Paul, and I was not a Fender fan. I tried the strat and nothing. But one day I got a tele and it turned me. The neck pick up has a deep and rich tone for those nice blues licks or thick chunk distorted rock chords. The bridge pick up has a nice twang and bightness to it that is not disturbing, pretty nice to play lead rock licks. The maple neck is fast and this guitar is just an over-all comfort to play. I truely recommend this guitar. You get your money's worth. Go out and try one today.

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I love the telecaster. I have had a wonderful employee at GUitar Center (A guy named Casey, who worked at Guess road store 4 years ago). He was a very customer-focussed guy and I wanted to buy stuff from him. I tried to give him my business again, but I heard he had relocated.

I felt the set-up wasn't great. There's a buzz in the low e. But, overall I love the guitar.

        First Fender

        By

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I have always played Gibsons or Epiphones, but felt the need to branch out. I have always liked the sound of a Tele, so thought it was time to try one. My wife ordered me one in Lake Placid blue for my birthday from Donnie at the Arlington,Tx location, and I was in awe when I picked it up. The color was fantastic, the set up was perfect, and I could not believe how well it played. Crisp highs on the bridge pickup, and sweet tone on the neck pickup, perfect for the type of music I like, which is the blues. I could not be more happy. Now my Les Pauls just hang on the wall looking sad while I play my Tele. I did change the strings to 10's, and all intonatiom issues went away. I recommend this to anyone looking for a guitar with some bite, but also some sweet blues tone as well.

        Great Guitar at any price

        By 

        from Broadalbin, NY

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        The guitar and amp (Telecaster and Marshal 30watt Amp) came by UPS and when we opened up the boxes, We couldn't believe how beautiful it was!I haven't played in yrs but it all comes back after a lot of practice.Only thing I would have liked better is the color; The sunburst color isn't very yellow-orange in the middle - more like a burnt orange (darker) but other than that, I looked it all over and found no flaws whatsoever - unlike a lot of reviews were saying! Nothing wrong with Made in Mexico.I set it all up according to Fender's instructions and it sounds and plays beautifully. The pickups were too low and the intonation needed re-doing and the bridge components were too high. After that, I pulled the neck up closer to the strings with the truss rod adjustment so it's not like playing a cheese slicer. (my fingers are sore enough as it is) Ha ha! Between the guitar and amp, I can get just about any sound or tone that I want! Just love it! Always wanted a Telecaster and didn't go wrong with this one! Couldn't see spending $$$ on an American made one and this more than satisfies my requirements for a great guitar; Buy one, you won't regret it!Just set it up properly and You will love it too!

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I wasn't happy with the stock pickups, so I put a Seymour Duncan hotrail in the bridge, and a dimarzio tru velevet in the neck. I am giving this 5 stars because the guitar was great quality with a straight neck, and awesome tone. See the pic I uploaded. New pickgard gave it personality.

        MIM Sunburst Standard Telecaster 2012

        By 

        from Tampa, Fl

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I have played guitar all my life. Acoustic and electric. The last few years mostly acoustic. I bought a Fender Standard Telecaster MIM in June 2013 at Guitar Center in Tampa, on Hillsborough Ave. Used but in mint condition. Fantastic guitar. I have not changed a thing on it and the pick ups are standard. the only thing I did, after playing it for a year, is to have the store do a In Store Set up. They don't do that on used guitars unless you ask. The guitar plays even better than before and sounds fantastic. I play it on my Fender Mustang amp and on my Fender G-dec. Great action, tone variations, frets are smooth, fast fret board. This is a no BS guitar! A classic, a time machine. I love it.

        Made In Mexico, Alright By Me

        from Hurst, TX

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I got the Arctic White from the great guys @ Guitar Center in Arlington TX, the neck has a great feel. The guitar is beautiful, but I changed the pickups & put in a set of Dimarzio Area Ts'. I had a Pro give me a great low action setup, & my, my. This guitar sounds badder than bad. I would bet real money, that you could not tell that this guitar was not an $1800 or $2000.00 guitar. It sounds that good to me.

        from New York

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I absolutely love this guitar. The pictures of the Lake Placid Blue do not do it justice. It plays INSANELY smoothly. It has a very comfortable weight and the general playability is spectacular.
