Premium Custom Shop pickups serve up tone for days
Fender’s American Standard Telecaster comes loaded with a pair of incredible-sounding Custom Shop pickups: a Twisted Tele in the neck position and Broadcaster at the bridge. You’ll adore the sonic mojo this Tele has in store for you. From fat rhythm tones to snappy country leads to all-out rock tones, this axe has it all. 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.
Improved bridge design gives you increased sustain
The Fender American Standard Telecaster incorparates an improved bridge design that serves up massive sustain. The five-screw-mounted brass bridge plate is loaded with bent-steel saddles with elongated string slots for a boost in resonance and sustain. The result is fantastically 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 restircted 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 keeping 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 lacquer finishes. With Fender’s American Standard Telecaster, you get the best of both worlds.
