From Our Research Team:
Classic Tele Tone - with a TwistThe FENDER® American Standard Telecaster® continues the legacy of the solidbody electric guitar that's inspired players for decades. Fender has juiced the Tele® with a pair of magnificent-sounding Custom Shop pickups - a Twisted Tele in the neck position and and Broadcaster at the bridge. That's a huge deal, but there's more! You finally get a comfy body contour to keep you rockin during marathon gigs. And with a new thinner undercoat, this Tele resonates more - which can only be good for tone. Factor in the comfortable rolled fingerboard edges, improved bridge design, staggered tuning machines, and premium SKB case, and you've got an irresistible guitar: the American Standard Telecaster®.
Fender American Standard Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
Premium Custom Shop pickups serve up tone for days
Fender's American Standard Telecaster sports a pair of incredible-sounding Custom Shop pickups: a Twisted Tele in the neck position and and Broadcaster at the bridge. This combo gives you the ultra-premium tone you'd expect from a Custom Shop guitar - at a US production model price. That alone makes the American Standard Tele a total steal. But there's so much more under the hood...
Improved bridge design gives you increased sustain
The Fender American Standard Telecaster features an improved bridge design that serves up mondo sustain. The five-screw-mounted brass bridge plate is loaded with bent-steel saddles with elongated string slots for increased resonance and sustain. The result is impressively improved sustain - which in a way brings us full circle, back to the Tele's origins. As the first production solidbody guitar, Leo Fender's idea with the Esquire, and later the Broadcaster (as the Tele was originally called) was to mimic the solidity of the pedal steel, juicing sustain and volume, while avoiding the feedback issues that tended to plague hollowbody guitars onstage.
Thinner body undercoat for optimal body resonance
An undercoat serves to give the paint a smooth surface to adhere to so you have a nice looking finish. The thicker the undercoat, the more glass-like the finish, but the more constricted the guitar's body wood, which could affect tone. Fender has switched to a new undercoat that is thinner, and that allows the body to flex and resonate more, while retaining the cosmetic advantages of an undercoat. The result? You get the tough-as-nails resilience of a modern poly finish, with tonal characteristics that are more in line with classic laquer finishes. With Fender's American Standard Telecaster®, you get the best of both worlds.

by Charlie Rogers from Wilmington NCI've been playing Strats for 25 yrs. now and finally bought a 2012 Telecaster. I absolutely love this guitar. The pick-up selection Fender made for this guitar is a beautiful thing. The reason for swi... read more [+]tching over is I'm now playing in a "Rowdy Americana" band and needed the twang but this guitar is much more than that. If I was on the fence about buying one of these go ahead and jump off. You won't regret it close [-]
