I bought one of these, when they first came out. I believe that was about 10 years ago, or more. They were re-marketed under the Squire moniker, on their second run. I see that they have gone back to having Fender on the headstock, once again.
In all mine has been a good little guitar, no complaints. Withstands the usual wear and tear. Still sounds good, on an amp or not. Never used it to play a venue. Mainly for practice.
I would say that this would be a great guitar for a beginner, just because it's so easy to play. Plays a lot like an electric, but forces you to play cleaner, as an acoustic. It's size is a plus for younger or smaller framed individuals. Sometimes a standard acoustic guitar can seem daunting to a smaller player, then they just don't practice as much.
BTW: They should offer them in more colors, like they use to. Mine is in Silver Flake. I believe they use to come in Brandywine, as well.

The action is so high its barely playable, if a novice tried to learn how to play on this,They would give up, and I wouldn't blame them. I'm going to have too take it apart, and shave the saddle down.
Has fender gone down hill? I don't know. But it was made in China. I would say
go to a music store and play one,maybe the guitar tech set it up better,don't buy one online like I did.
I hope this helps

Fender Telecoustic

By dorraine stepp

from Jackson, Ohio

Comments about Fender Standard Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

Best acoustic electric ever played
I am very pleased with this guitar, it has a great sound. Very fast playing neck, as smooth as any electric tele that I have ever played. Strings were a little heavy, but I replaced them with EB 10's. Haven't been able to put it down. As far as acoustics go, its not as loud as my dad's martin, but will hold its own against any shellback or thin line acoustic I've ever played. As far as electric sound goes, I put it to the test with my brother's line 6 150 watt half stack. Sound was awesome, just as good as my brother's Ibenez. I had to take it away from him. Great price too! I recommend this guitar to anyone, looking for a good playing, good sounding electric acoustic guitar.

It's really a Fender

By PHutch

from Near Nor Chicagoth

See all my reviews

Comments about Fender Standard Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

You have to own one of these to realize the terrific value of having an acoustic with a real Fender bolt on neck. Set it up right and it will play great and fast. The composite body makes it light and durable, the action can be set very low. I use 10's on my Tele Deluxe, so I can get a very similar feel. My Telecoustic is one of the first issues, red, and does not have the built in tuner, but the Fishman pickup is very good. The range of plugged in sounds is fantastic, and I'll use it at church sounding close to a nylon string for one tune and a bright steel string sound for another. It responds, like any guitar, to the level of the player. The Telecoustic presents a variety of different sounds, and plugging into my pedal board just expands the possibilities. You have to remember what it is, an inexpensive electric accoustic. I like it a lot better than my son's more expensive Ovation. This is a very useful, inexpensive, and durable intrument. I think it is a terrific buy.

Comments about Fender Standard Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar a couple years back and I don't regret it at all...This guitar is great! It plays like an electric guitar and its so lightweight and versatile. The built in tuner is great and it sounds as good as any electric guitar ive ever played. The greatest guitar for the money hands down. If you are hesitating to buy this guitar or it brother the Stratacoustic...don't hesitate...Buy it!

Comfortable, Great Value

By TeleTwang

Comments about Fender Standard Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I have had this for close to a year now. While it isn't a Taylor or a Martin and who could expect it to be for the price, I do feel it's an outstanding value. It's ultra comfortable and I have always hated playing acoustics because a tele neck is all that I ever liked the feel of. Unplugged it's nice to be able to play with disturbing a 3 miles radius and no it doesn't have a big body warm sound, it is totally comparably to an Ovation sound. Plugged in it's the runt that completely holds it own. I have never played an acoustic in this price range that did sound as well plugged in. Mine gets played at least 3 church services per week through the sound system and I run through a small Fender tube amp for a monitor. Overall I think it's well worth the money. I don't know of anything else in this price range I would even want.

Comments about Fender Standard Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar for the money. In fact I would expect the price to be a little higher. It is beautiful, has good tone and unlike some other comments that I have read, it plays well just as an acoustic. Maybe not on stage by itself, but I love it for practicing. The action was a little high and the fret edges were a little sharp, no problem my guitar tech to correct.

This is not my main guitar as I play a Strat and a Gretsch, but I enjoy it and it sounds great played through my fender tube amp! Life with Fender is good!

Fender, as always, you do an Excellent job with quality and affordability! Thank you Musician's Friend for making this available!

Rock on,

Wayne
The onboard tuner is a bonus and is excellent! The neck feels good as any fender would. Nice tone especially with Optima ten's strings.
Very well built. This gem is solid.
Much more guitar than I would expect for the money. Don't be afraid to buy this guitar, set it up and then enjoy it!

Great for What I do

By Bluesmangaryc

from Jackson New Jersey

Comments about Fender Standard Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I've been an electric guitar player for 40 plus years. I have developed a solo electric style that I employ in my act for 4 hours a night. I was using a Gibson 335 for this act..Some places want strictly acoustic music..I've been struggling to play my stuff on several acoustic guitars ,high end included.Then I picked up this little baby..I put electric 10s on it, reset the neck tension,tuned her up , and she plays like a dream. Easy on my hands too. The on board tuner needs to be wired to the input jack power switch so it's not left on accidentaly when unplugged.You may wake up to a dead battery if you don't turn it off manualy...no big deal

Awesome for the money

By bobbysongsmith

Comments about Fender Standard Telecoustic Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

I bought one of these a couple of years ago and have used it quite a bit. This little thing rocks! It is great for practicing or playing on stage. Once you get it tuned in, it will stay in tune for a long time. The sound of this thing is impressive for its size. I play it on a tube combo and even use distortion sometimes...sounds awesome. I recently had mine stolen and am replacing it asap. I can't live without this little guy...it is a valuable piece of equipment to me. I rated it overall a 4.5 since it is technically a 'cheap' guitar, but valuewise...it's off the charts!
