Pure, simple and twangy
The Fender American Standard Telecaster is the guitar that started it all! Leo Fender first designed the guitar that would later become the Telecaster in 1949. The model that was built in 1950 still is pretty much the same as the modern Telecaster. The Telecaster is known for a more twangy and raw tone then its younger brother, the Strat.
The simple and no-nonsense ways of a Telecaster make it an ideal work hose for loads of situations. Blues, country, funk and pop artists all over the world play love their Fender Telecasters. For the last more than 65 years the Telecaster has been a reliable partner for almost every guitarist who is looking for a great and natural sound.
