Classic Tele Design, Eye-popping Swirl Finish

The Fender Standard Telecaster solidbody electric guitar gives you that classic Tele sound and feel you know and love. It even adds some very cool improvements for modern players! The Standard Telecaster sports a pair of single-coil pickups voiced a bit hotter than standard, which works very well when you're cranking up for overdrive. The wiring cavities are now shielded, giving you a big reduction in hum and a quieter operation. This Tele features an alder body, a maple neck and fingerboard, and chrome hardware. Medium jumbo frets make the Fender Standard Telecaster easier to play than ever.

Hotter pickups for smokin' tone

Fender outfitted the Standard Telecaster 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 pleased many players, the added punch of hotter pickups would help the Standard Tele drive modern amps even better. It'll give 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 half a 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. Countless times it has been copied, tweaked, mutated, modified, gutted, and bedecked with extras. But the original always shines through. The Standard Telecaster 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 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 to 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 in among a select few.
