Premium Custom Shop pickups serve up tone for days

Fender’s American Standard Telecaster sports a pair of incredible-sounding Custom Shop pickups: a Twisted Tele in the neck position and and Broadcaster at the bridge. This combo gives you the ultra-premium tone you’d expect from a Custom Shop guitar at a U.S. production model price. That alone makes the American Standard Tele a total steal. But there’s so much more under the hood!

Improved bridge design gives you increased sustain

The Fender American Standard Telecaster features an improved bridge design that serves up mondo sustain. The 5-screw-mounted brass bridge plate is loaded with bent-steel saddles with elongated string slots for increased resonance and sustain. The result is impressively improved sustain which brings us 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 constricted the guitar’s body wood which could affect tone. Fender has switched to a new undercoat that is thinner and allows the body to flex and resonate more while retaining 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 laquer finishes. With Fender’s American Standard Telecaster, you get the best of both worlds.
