The Standard Telecaster® guitar features a fast-action neck profile modeled on a late '60s Telecaster. A hot single-coil pickup in the bridge position provides all the bite you want for stinging leads. In the neck position, the Standard Telecaster's chrome-covered single-coil pickup helps you find your own voice.
The Telecaster was one of Fender's first solid-body guitars and has been seen in the hands of countless players in nearly all genres of music. The guitar has a strong affinity with country music but has proved its worth in rock, blues, funk, and even jazz genres. The Squier Standard Telecaster provides the authentic playing experience, tones, and looks of a classic '60s Telecaster, with a few modern touches to keep contemporary players happy. This guitar is a perfect "standard" example of why the Telecaster design is so popular.
Classic Single Coils & Resonant Tonewood Combination
The Squier Standard Telecaster features the original dual single-coil pickup design to give you the balance of biting bridge-position tones and mellow neck-position sounds. Single coils are more nuanced than other pickup designs and are perfect for creating clean sounds with complex overtones and detailed high-end. When you pile on the overdrive, the Telecaster becomes the ideal blues/rock guitar that will cut through any mix.
This guitar features an agathis body with a maple neck and laurel fingerboard. The single pickups accentuate the balanced frequency response of these tonewoods and create a versatile range of sounds for almost any genre. The Telecaster bridge-position tone is renowned for its "spank" and clarity, while the neck-position pickup can create the ideal sound for bluesy/jazzy leads and funky chordal playing.
The Squier Standard Telecaster has a neck based on '60s dimensions with its "C" profile for a comfortable reach over all 6-strings. The single cutaway body enables access to all 22 frets for high-range soloing, while the modern 9.5'' radius fingerboard gives a balanced feel across the 6 strings, making chordal and lead playing easier.
A Workhorse Guitar
The Telecaster's simplicity is partly what makes it so versatile and reliable. The fixed bridge with string-thru-body design gives excellent resonance and tuning stability, complemented by the quality die-cast tuners. The bolt-on neck assists with the guitar's stability, while the string-thru-body construction enables maximum string vibration transfer. The 6-saddle bridge provides individual string adjustment for action (string height) and intonation (tuning across the fingerboard) so you'll be able to setup the perfect playing-feel for your requirements. The Telecaster's versatility, reliability and distinct voice is what makes it a staple in many players' collections; it is the ideal instrument for practice, recording and gigging.
