Commemorative Telecaster in gold with gold-plated hardware.

For the past 40 years, Squier by Fender has been creating instruments played by hundreds of thousands of guitarists, from beginners to pros. To celebrate that anniversary, the Squier/Fender design team has put together some spectacular instruments. The Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Telecaster brings together upscale looks, player-friendly features and all the classic Tele tone you could possibly want.

Vintage Curves in a New Wood

While traditional Teles have been poplar, alder or ash body guitars, the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Telecaster uses nato, a wood frequently referred to as Eastern mahogany. Nato has the warmth often associated with mahogany, but it adds a crispness that summons the snap a Tele needs for that instantly familiar tone. Nato has the benefit of being a more sustainable wood as well, making it a real win-win situation. All the 40th Anniversary Gold Series feature a beautiful and durable gloss finish in several striking colors.

Fast and Comfortable Neck

With a 25.5"-scale, C-profile maple neck and bound 9.5"-radius Indian laurel fingerboard, you'll find the neck smooth, fast and easy to play. Add in premium pearloid block inlays and a bone nut, and the traditional 21-fret configuration looks as great as it plays, making the Gold Series Tele a celebration of the combined history of both the Telecaster and Squier.

Alnico 5 Pickups for Classic Tone

When it comes to pickups—the heart of any electric guitar—the Squier 40th Anniversary Gold Series Telecaster stays classic, with a pair of Fender-designed Alnico 5 single coils for spot-on Tele tone. The bridge has all the twang you need, and the neck pickup can go from solid to smooth with a slight roll of the tone control. It's often been said that the Telecaster is one of the most sonically versatile electric guitars, and this special edition is here to prove it.

A Guitar You'll Play for Years

The hardware of the Gold Series Tele is its defining trait. Gold plated and gleaming from headstock to strap button, with a gold-anodized pickguard and engraved 40th Anniversary neck plate, it catches and holds the eye, and you'll look as good playing it as you sound. Add this one to your collection, and you'll understand why so many players over the decades have kept a Squier in their collection—for the sheer fun of playing one.
