Extremely versatile guitar. Can play anything from jazz to metal to some ambient stuff. Factory set up was perfect and there wasn't any fret buzz and intonation was perfect. The neck pickup buzzes a tiny bit, but it's barely noticeable and doesn't effect me unless I'm using a wah or something. I got it in lake placid boyr and it looks great!! I recommend

Now I am a fender guy.

By Jose Arellano

from San Diego, CA.

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

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.

Good with Potential to be Great

By David Misal

from Lancaster PA

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

To put it simply, this is a good guitar, with a decent Tele sound (twangy and bright on the bridge pup, round and warm on the neck pup), and good hardware. If you want it to be great, swap the pickups for something better - nearly anything will fix there issues. They are too bright, and too "ice-pick" in the high end. There are a million aftermarket Tele pups, many very affordable, that will take this guitar from good to great in no time flat. That's it. The one thing holding it back. If you like a more vintage thing right out of the box, I suggest the Classic Vibe Tele from Squier - it is a little less money, and more spot on for vintage Tele work. If you want a more flexible, modern guitar after a pup swap, then this is your cup o tea.

solid sound

By ernest

from riverside, ca

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.

First Fender

By Michael

from Bedford, Tx

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.

Work Horse

By CALVIN FLINT

from Mississippi delta, Home of the Blues

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar new, four years ago when it was on sale and took an additional 20% discount. Total cost $280. I've played for over 45 years and have a USA Strat, Gibson ES339 & ES175, Taylor 410CE, Martin 000, Ovation Tornado (look it up), and a few classicals and guitar synths. Variety of amps. While this Tele is not the finest guitar I own, I seem to pick it up quite often. I gig regularly with several groups and have used it for a Chicago cover band, Classic Rock, Blues/Funk and even some contemporary jazz tunes. It also works fine in the studio. Like most single coils, there is a bit of hum, especially with some compressors, but nothing you can't deal with. Simple bare bones design, yet very flexible in the tones, from crunchy rock to clean, mellow jazz. Guitar required some set up on arrival, but nothing major. Fit & Finish are fine. Neck solid and comfortable to hold. I chose the Arctic White and it's very nice. After 4 years, I have no reservations recommending this guitar. For the money, this is probably the most guitar for the price that I own.

      So Versatile!

      By adam sutkiewicz

      from Milwaukee, WI

      Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      A year ago I bought the Lake Placid blue Standard Telecaster. I used to have a strong bias against fender products until someone let my play their telecaster. I have never looked back since. This guitar offers such historic american tones, and you can alter them anyway you'd like. This thing can handle some serious beef, as well as vintage tube sounds. Nothing ever gets muddy or washed out. There is not a thing this guitar can do. You will not be able to hear the difference between this guitar and a american telecaster. The stock pickups in the guitar are the best stock pickups that have come with any of my guitars I have bought. I did however replace them, but this thing sounds phenomenal right out of the box! I get tons of compliments when I play out live on how beautiful it is.

      Great experience

      By STEVE LUNDELL

      from Beavercreek, Ohio

      Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      Just bought this guitar and love it. It looks great and plays easy. Just what I had hoped for. I always wanted a telecaster but as a learner/hobbyist I really couldn't justify the cost of an American Tele. I adjusted the action and the pickup height, and it sounds great. Excellent buy. I ordered a tele at the store, and when it arrived, it just wasn't the color I expected. The folks at the store were very accommodating and re-ordered this one for me on the spot. When it arrived, part of my order was missing. I called the help line and a guy named Bill helped me. Very friendly, and efficient. He ordered the missing article and had it in the mail right away. Best customer service I've had in a very long time.

      Wonderful

      By Austin Masur

      from Edgewood MD

      Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I got this guitar a year ago, and it is just amazing. The neck is great, and the paint is beautiful. It stays in tune very well, and has the classic tele twang! The pickups are a little bit weak, but not enough to make it 4 stars. It is an amazing guitar for the price!
