THE FLAGSHIP TELECASTER

The U.S.-made flagship of the Telecaster lineup and the modern version of a revered American original. As simply elegant as ever, the American Standard Telecaster is an enduring design classic for the guitarist who appreciates and aspires to the beautifully bright, clear tone and style of the Fender guitar that started it all. From garages to nightclubs to stadiums worldwide, this is the real thing—a timeless Telecaster that rings more fully and brilliantly than ever.

FEATURES
  • Comfortable body contour
  • Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele® (neck) and Custom Shop vintage-style Tele (bridge) pickups
  • Modern neck profile and fingerboard radius
  • Micro-Tilt™ neck-angle adjustment
  • String-through-body six-saddle bridge
  • Wealth of finish options
ASH AND ALDER BODIES

Two great tonewoods long used by Fender for the majority of its electric guitar bodies. Alder is noted for bright, balanced and resonant tone with pronounced upper midrange, excellent sustain and sharp attack. Strong and more dense, ash is used for select American Standard finishes and is notably resonant and sweet sounding, with clearly chiming highs, defined midrange and strong low end.

MODERN NECK AND FINGERBOARD

This American Standard instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary “C”-shaped profile and a smooth satin-finish back. The fingerboard features a modern 9.5” radius, with comfortably rolled edges for instantly “broken in” feel and medium jumbo frets.

UPGRADED MODERN BRIDGES

For superior intonation, sustain and ease of adjustment, American Standard guitars feature modern bridges with upgraded features. This string-through-body Telecaster bridge has bent steel saddles and a brass plate stamped with the Fender logo.

CUSTOM SHOP PICKUPS

For singing single-coil tone and performance, this American Standard Telecaster features a specially voiced Twisted Tele® neck pickup and stinging Custom Shop vintage-style Tele bridge pickup, both from the very best of our best, the Fender Custom Shop.

POLYURETHANE FINISH WITH THIN UNDERCOAT

This finish offers the superior look and durability of polyurethane, applied to a thinner undercoat that lets the instrument’s body wood flex, breathe and resonate more freely for a more unconstrained and natural-sounding voice.

STAGGERED TUNERS

Staggered tuners present tuning posts of differing heights that increase the break angle of the strings over the nut. On American Standard guitars, the D, G, B, and high E string tuning posts are set lower than the A and low-E strings, creating a greater string angle that improves performance and helps eliminate buzz.
