Modern advances blended with the spirit of its legendary forerunners.

Now available in cool special edition vintage colors with painted headstocks, today's American Standard Telecaster guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors. Mindful of player's needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, the 2009 Special Edition American Standard Telecaster remains completely true to the elements and spirit that made these instruments legendary in the first place. Improvements have been made to the guitar's bridge, the neck and body finish and it comes with a Fender-exclusive high-tech molded case. Of course Fender has kept the beloved hand-rolled fretboard edges, alnico V pickups, and staggered tuning machines for tone and stability guaranteed to last a lifetime. This American Standard Tele comes with molded case, cable, strap, polishing cloth, and wrenches.
