Fender outfitted the Standard Telecaster Satin with two single-coil pickups voiced hotter than what might be considered "standard" output. Why? They know that, although the Tele has been around a long time and has pleased a ton of players just fine, the added punch of hotter pickups would help the Standard Tele drive modern amps even better. This gives you that classic Tele vibe while allowing you to kick your sound into overdrive. The control cavities are now shielded, giving you quieter operation. What's more, the modern C-shaped neck is topped with medium-jumbo frets for even easier playing.The simple beauty of a classic design
You've probably heard the story before: Leo Fender began designing and building his soon-to-be-iconic guitars over a half-century ago, even though he didn't play guitar himself. The Telecaster represents Fender's first real success, and the fact that it remains such a sought-after guitar today speaks volumes about its quality and playability. It's been copied countless times, tweaked, mutated, modified, gutted, and bedecked with extras, but the original always shines through. The Standard Telecaster Satin continues this legacy by respecting the original while making it very suitable for the modern player.Why is Tele tone so legendary?
Descended from one of the true "grandaddies" of guitar designs, the Standard Telecaster Satin retains all the characteristics that make the Tele so popular across all musical genres. Its tone can range from articulate chicken-pickin' cluck to warm sustain and from crunchy power chords to crystal-clear chime. Only a handful of instruments stand out decade after decade, and the Tele's magical blend of playability, utility, and tone definitely puts it with a select few.Fender Standard Telecaster Satin Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
