Summary: Descended from one of the true "grandaddies" of guitar designs, the American 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, crunchy power chords to crystal-clear chime. Only a handful of instruments stand out decade after decade, and this Tele's magical blend of playability, utility, and tone definitely puts it in among a select few.

Body: Telecaster, single cutaway, sunburst gloss finish.

Neck: Maple with a Maple fretboard, 25.5” scale length, 1.685” nut width, black dot inlays, 22 medium jumbo frets.

Pickups/Hardware: Bent steel saddles, Fender six in line tuning keys, American Telecaster single coil pickups, master volume knob/master tone knob, 3-way pickup selector, chrome hardware, 3-ply pickguard.

Cosmetics: This guitar has pickwear on the pickguard. It has very light buckle rash on the back of the body. There is one small dent in the finish between the control knob panel and the bridge pickup. The neck of this guitar is in great shape with no dings or scratches. The frets still have a ton of life left in them. Overall, this guitar is great shape and plays fantastic.

Playability: Our in-house guitar tech has inspected, setup, and restrung this guitar with a new set of 10’s. The neck is straight, the truss rod is fully functional, and the action has been setup low and comfortable. The frets are in great shape with no major grooves or divots from use and it plays beautifully up and down the fretboard with no dead spots or choking out.
