A Tele Any Player Would Love!

Classic Tele sound that fits any budget! The Squier Standard Telecaster, like the original, has been a staple of country and rock practically since its inception due to its sonic versatility.

The Squier Standard Telecaster rocks a neck modeled after the late '60s Tele for fast runs up and down the fingerboard. When you need the classic tones only a Tele can offer but you're on a budget, reach for the Squier Standard Tele. You won't be disappointed!

tones galore

I agonized over whether to buy my first fender guitar with rosewood or maple fretboard. I played a thinline tele with a maple fretboard and it was punchy but I'm glad I settled on the rosewood fretboard instead because it's a different range of tones compared to the maple. The agathis body and slim profile maple neck allow for a comfortable playing experience and the single coil pups provide such a huge range of tones that I just can't put the guitar down. Mine came with a light canary hue and that 60s vibe. The three ply pick guard and top hat selector switch are classic. Wonderful guitar that let's any player explore the history of popular music in America. Rock, country, blues you name it this guitar delivers like no other.

Fender Squier Telecaster

My first concern was the neck and how it would feel up and down the fretboard and my expectations were surpassed. The smooth maple neck and beautiful rosewood fretboard were just awesome. Comfortable playing experience. I have played Gibson, Epiphone and Martin most of my playing career. This is my first fender product ever purchased and I can say with confidence that this is the most tone and rhythm I've experienced in an electric. Light weight and easy to play the standard telecaster has easy electronics with volume and tone on a single control for both pickups with three way switching. The pickups are single coil double wound and clear as a bell. I use a Fender stage 600 212 with digital effects and get those nasty dirty tube sounds with the selector switch in any of the three positions. The medium jumbo frets and scale are incredible. Just can't say enough about this guitar. Incredible for the price, I don't know how you can get this much guitar for the money.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE RICH TO OWN A TELE

What do you do if you want a REAL TELECASTER but don't have a stock portfolio, a mansion in the burbs, and a Porsche? YOU BUY THIS ONE. That's it, as simple as that...YOU BUY THIS ONE. My first electric guitar was a 1968 Telecaster that I bought in 1968 new for $145 and in the color scheme of this one. It brings back some good memories. IF IT WALKS LIKE A DUCK, AND QUACKS LIKE A DUCK, IT MOST LIKELY IS A DUCK...catch my drift? I asked Ryan Murphy to pick me out a "good one" and he did. And guess what? This Tele QUACKS.

Rich J.

I wondered about this guitar for a long time and read every review I could find before buying. With it being an import guitar, the most important thing for me was the 1.650" string width at the nut. I thought for a long time about getting the Squier Classic Vibe Tele, but the deal breaker was the 1.625" nut. Who knows why Squier made them narrower. Even the CV Strats have the 1.650". Anyway, this is an Indonesian model and I have to say that the quality control there is 2nd to none. This thing is immaculate inside and out. Everything is mounted straight and tight. No sharp fret ends to worry about, even the output jack was as tight as I'd want it. The intonation was spot on. I just lowered the action to my taste. The only thing I can complain about is that the body paint is a little thin and some wood grain shows through. Who wants to see agathis wood grain? ( -1/2 point). I bought this guitar as platform for modding and I was as unimpressed with the pickups as I knew I would be. Not bad, but just about what you'd expect for the price range. I replaced the pickups with DiMarzio Area T (neck) and Area Hot T (bridge) and was going to replace the pots and 3-way, but everything was so clean and nicely installed, I just left them alone. The p/u selector feels really good and the pots are mini Alpha 250k with what looks like a gumdrop capacitor. Before I forget, the p/u and control cavities on this thing are some of the cleanest I have ever seen, and I've seen a few. After installing some Sperzel locking tuners and Ernie Ball 10's, it sounds, plays and looks like an ax worth WAY more than it is. Being a modder, my rule is to not spend any more on replacement parts than what the instrument cost originally. This worked perfectly here. For less than a mim Fender, I have an ax that is worthy of ANY venue from largest to smallest. This is a great value for anyone who loves telecasters, weather you want to upgrade it or not!

UPDATE OF OLDER REVIEW

If I had not purchased the VINTAGE MODIFIED TELECASTER DELUXE (which is a bit different from the standard tele...I know) I would not have changed this review. While they are slightly different animals...there is still a close connection between the two. In addition to the pedigree similarity, the difference is that the standard tele is GOOD FOR THE MONEY...while THE VM TELECASTER DELUXE...IS JUST PLAIN FRICKIN' GOOD!!!
