The timeless Fender Telecaster, more popular today than ever it seems. Here available in Fenders classic Black, with a beautiful Maple fingerboard.

This superb Mexican made Fender Standard Series version offers great value and vibe at a seriously tempting price.

The neck pickup if that famous 'lipstick', originally made with a disused lipstick cover, whilst the bridge is a large square Chrome plate, bent up at the far end, here with 6 individual Chrome saddles, all fully adjustable for string height and intonation.

The bridge pickup is black, slanted across the strings with 6 polepieces poking though the plastic cover.

Everyone must be familiar with the telecaster sound, but if you need reminding, players like Bob Dylan, Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, Rick and Francis of Status Quo, Joe Strummer of the Clash and Bruce Springsteen are all big fans.

And with such diverse musical styles there alone, the Telecaster is a truly versatile guitar. Rock, country, blues, punk and indie are all represented.

An amazingly successful instrument, the Fender Standard Telecaster is an instrument ALL guitarists MUST have in their collection. And at this price, great value for money.

5Excellent Service

I ordered the guitar (plus some other goodies) at 09:40 ish on 22nd Sep 10, and it was delivered to my door less than 24 hours later. The guitar had been checked, and tuned, and sounds great. Excellent service, and I'll definately use these guys again.

5Great value & excellent service...

This is an excellent guitar for the money. Certainly Fender's 2009 upgrade has improved this model all round on its predecessor: a deeper tint on the neck, a better maple neck (and the frets are dressed very well indeed). Even the stock pickups are superior, though I'll still insert a couple of Seymour Duncans in there. Very well made, plays and sounds like a dream. What more could a guy ask for? Well, maybe the choice of a rosewood fretboard, but Fender no longer do that in this model.
