I bought the Squier Standard Telecaster recently and the hardware and overall quality seems to have been upgraded as promised. It took me awhile for the Tele's pickguard and smallish headstock to grow on me so I waited until I saw the Tele I wanted. Got the walnut satin finish with rosewood neck. A little redder than I expected based on the picture but not disappointed - in truth a classier finished look, like a fine piece of furniture. The Black pickguard gives the whole thing a classy custom look. BUT - the proofs in the sound and playability. I already had an older Squier Standard Strat and that's why I considered Squier when I shopped for my Tele. Adjusted the intonation and they both play and sound sweet. The Squier Strat has the Strat sound and now I've got that Tele Twang. I haven't been disappointed with Squier (I even bought a Squier Affinity P-Bass for recording) and I DO have a Fender Strat and I wouldn't trade it for anything, but Squier does gives you plenty of bang for less bucks! It's hip to be SQUIER!

I went to buy one in mid December to use for rehearsals and maybe gigs, but out of stock. Ordered one, got it mid January, but had defective neck pickup and wiring. Back it went for another, which was now out of stock again. Got the second one by end of February, but it too had pickup and wiring issues...so back that one went for another, which again was out of stock...now it is the end of April and I just got the email that tele #3 is on it's way...Will I have a playable guitar after waiting 4 months? Stay tuned, but my expectations with Squier quality control are not very high at this point.

Comments about Squier Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

This is a classic tele feel and twang -- works well with our Fender Deluxe Reverb -- the guitar required some adjustments, action was high, adjusted the bridge springs and the truss rod -- did not take much to give it a cursory "setup" -- intonation is not perfect but its close enough -- the color is not exactly like the photos on the web site, the actual color is a bit more "grayish yellow" than yellowish -- was hoping Fender locking tuners would just slip right into the tuner slots but alas they did not -- tuners are not great, but not the worst I've seen either -- surprisingly the guitar stays in tune, we did change the strings of course before all the adjustments we made to the guitar. For the price this tele is fun, love the look and feel and we have it set up with 9's -- the pickups are a little meek, and we may switch to 10's to give the tone a little more body eventually -- enjoying the guitar very much. No need to put much more money into it - it is what it is, a reliable Squire Tele made in Indonesia.

With the exception of the nut (the slot for the high E was too close to the edge of the fretboard - replaced it with a tusq), everything about this guitar was fantastic!

    Squier Standard Tele

    By william hodges

    from Chicago, IL

    Comments about Squier Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I had a Jay Turser TL But it left much to be desired . I found a used Squier Standard Rolling Rock Tele On at a local GC Used . I bought it for a fair price. It Needed A good cleaning , Strings, A setup and intonation adjusted . But after that It is all Cream . It sounds great in all positions and the action is great . I bought it used so I dont know how it was when shipped new . I also Own a Squier Standard Cherry Burst Strat which I bought new . The Strat was Great right off the store wall , Which is why I wanted a Squier Tele . Based on My Squier Standard Tele I would Highly Recomend this Guitar .

    Squier Standard Tele - Antique Burst

    By William Ostrander

    from Cheyenne, WY

    Comments about Squier Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I've been a professional musician for almost 20 years. I was looking for something inexpensive to "hotrod" into a Nashville type Tele (3 pickups) for live performances. I had owned a couple Squier Strats back in the 80s and they served me well, so I thought I'd give this one a shot. The first thing I noticed on this axe was that it was a bit more "red" than the picture shows. I think I like it better in real life. However, I also purchased a white pearl pickguard to replace the tortoise shell guard that it came with. GOOD: Plenty of country twang(Vintage '50ish)with stock pickups. Fit and finish are good. Good tuners. Good neck. Bridge pickup works well in a live music setting. Adjustable height pickups, unlike some Fender Teles. BAD: The neck pickup could use some help. It seems a bit shallow for my taste. Some might like it but I am not too impressed. Also, if you are not willing to spend some time setting up the intonation, string height and truss rod then plan on taking it to your local guitar tech to get it set up. I spent a little over 2 hours setting up mine. Once finished, it played well and stayed in tune throughout the length of the neck. Also, I will probably switch to Seymour Duncan Five-Two Tele pickups in the VERY near future. They have a much better tone than the stock pups provided here. I also have installed a Fender Vintage noiseless Strat middle pickup inbetween the Tele pickups. Using the $13, 5 position Strat switch (purchased from Guitar Center), changing the normal wiring on the switch to bridge pup in the middle position - middle pup in the far right position, I was able to keep the original Tele sounds and add some Strat "quack" from the bridge and middle pups. If you buy the 5 position Fender Super Switch you can get more quack positions and keep the original Tele settings. All-in-all, by purchasing this axe instead of a standard FENDER Tele, I was able to save myself almost $500 for a hotrodded guitar that sounds great and plays well.

    Good for a cover band

    By Ethan Lockwood

    from San Diego Ca

    Comments about Squier Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    Ive been needing a good black and white Telecaster at a cheap price for a Clash cover band, this is a perfect guitar, gets the right tones with the right effects and pedals, and looks great, the paint is thinner so i can sand down some to get that iconic Joe Strummer look.

    Bought Used and Really Like It

    By Anthony

    from Cleveland, OH

    Comments about Squier Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    I bought this standard tele used just because i like the tele sound but didn't want to invest a lot into it. I really ended up loving it. The neck pickup has a great warm tone and neck itself is easy to move on. I get a little buzz out of the B string when it's played open or using the 3 or so frets, but I need to sit down and make some adjustments. I don't think it's a problem that can't be fixed. I'm looking for a new bridge pickup if anyone has any suggestions please post.

    Good Solid Guitar!

    By CADmanDo

    from Cleveland, Tennessee

    Comments about Squier Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    Fathers Day 2010, My wife wanted to buy a guitar for me, but we only had just over $200 to spend. Could we find a worthy guitar for that little money? I was discouraged untill I spotted the Vintage Blonde Telecaster. The neck is great, slim straight, good frets, no buzzing. The pickups are good, knobs are solid. the finish is beautiful. I like the individual saddles and string through body. I have two other guitars, and this, by far, has the best playibility! When I first got it home, it didn't stay in tune that well. I changed the strings to Earnie Ball Super Slinkies, and it has stayed perfectly in tune ever since. I wanted a guitar that I could just play and not have to work on, do upgrades, etc. This Guitar meets the need perfectly. If you want a guitar and don't have a ton of cash, this could be your ticket!

    Got twang?

    By Kevintl15

    from Renton washinton

    Comments about Squier Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    This axe rocks,and rolls. I play a wide range of music and this guitar is perfect. Throw it to the bridge pickup to get that country bluegrass twang. Then Kick on some heavy metal distortion and throw that switch to the neck and rock out. Truely worth the steal of the price. Shipped fast and safely.
