MGR/Arseny 's review"Fender American Standard Telecaster"
The tele's got a really good feel and great clean sound. I have a fender deville tube amp and the sound I get out of the two is amazing. I can even play classical with the tone turned down. I especially like the neck pickup with its dark full sound.
The one thing I don't like about the tele is how crappy its metal distorted sound is. It's perfect for led zeppelin type distortion, but anything harder than that sounds really bad. It is impossible to get any kind of Metallica sound, even with the best distortion pedals.
Quality and construction are great.
Probably near the best electric guitar you can get for any clean music, good for overdrive and light distortion, horrible for metal and punk.

ethyl337's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excellent guitar"
The handle end is very nice. Access notes treble impeccable.
Even when disconnected from the amp (hot rod deluxe) it sounds!
Purchased for play PJ Harvey. Very good guitar for rhythm but not that.
A bit heavy but still a gem to play (sounds slammin) It supports very well the way you play, touch guitarist is well respected.
A jewel of Fender U.S..
Ideal for crystal clear sound played in arpeggio but everything else for him too.
Perfect for playing Anna Calvi, PJ Harvey, Jeff Buckley, and Stones!
I utlise on Fender Hot Rod and Marschall (small combi 15 w). great on both amps.
I use it since 2006 or 6 years but secondary guitar behind my strat and my jaguars.
I struggled to get the 900 euros at the time but the investment is excellent. She did not move. She survived probably
When I entered the store, I immediately identified.
I do not regret my choice, what quality!
Qill's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" American Standard"
Maple neck C, the same as the Standard Model
On the headstock, it has serial No. is placed ahead and not behind, writing Telecaster is not in quotes as the Standard Model
Mechanical Fender, unsurprisingly
The body is alder not change
2 micro single coil American Made, the new version is called American Standard
1 switch 3 position 1 tone 1 volume
The bridge is not the registration Fender and has only 3 screws while the Standard Model has 5 screws, jumpers are not such
The sound is a true American Standard model, no surprises, it twang great slice it well is slamming .... How short a Telecaster
I found mine at € 800 with Hard Case No. soucy therefore, they are resistant shovels provided to take care of mine with a date of 92 rare Surf Green finish Metal by well tested against the switch with micro time it crachotte a flick bomb and leaving, the knobs can make the game so like a bit of a screwdriver that is bueno
Franko HARDRIDER's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" "Perfect!""
This model is equipped with microphones Fender single coils.
Mechanically stacked Fender ® / Schaller ® Deluxe oil bath.
Rope Bridge Crossing American Standard type with 6 bridges, stainless steel.
Maple neck with a profile Modern "C" - satin polyurethane varnish.
Plate round struck the 60th Anniversary logo
The handle is a gem! The softness and absolute grip but requiring a good technique because it forgives nothing.
It is a bit heavy (compared to an older model I had) but very well balanced.
Access to acute seems to me not difficult but I do not have large paws, and fits for the solos.
The sound is great, soft, aggressive, round, warm, with incredible sustain.
Fender single coil pickups with dynamic sound and "vintage". In short the sound of the Telecaster!
I learned to play on a Telecaster dated 1968 but I loved pourave and on which I played the Metal. It was my reference to it.
With this, I discovered "The Fender" (Telecaster), the clean, clear, clean, clean, perfect. It will be my guitar for everything that is not Metal. Composed of infinite perspectives.
I play on a 150 MARSHALL LEAD.
The sound distortion has nothing to do with double coils and suddenly I figured it was not made for such use (in an optical Metal) Blues Crunch but it does.
In his clear is absolute happiness! It goes from a soft, mellow sound aggressive and powerful. Rock, Funk, Blues, Country, Ballad, everything happens for the best!
A remake? Without hesitation and even pay twice the price I paid.
At this level of quality is Nirvana immediate and direct investment in the long run! !
I played on a Telecaster for 18 years. This is a guitar "emotional." I use it recently (March 2010) but I play every day.
My guitar is precious (my precious ... )
Bought second-hand 600 euros instead of 650 after a short negotiation, I consider it a great deal. A small shock on the lower body (I skipped painting repaired myself) and a light on a corner of the head that I had not even seen for both until the I make out the seller was the deal of the century unexpected!
Given the build quality and its sound quality, pay more seems to me justified especially after comparing with Mexican and more with Squier.
I love his line.
The old was black with a white plate, a face eternal imortalisée by Francis Rossi and updated today by pure metal (JIM ROOT, JOHN 5)) that says it all!
The news is cream with a black plate, I find that it throws less but ... she is beautiful! !
KEITH RICHARDS Plus / TOM MORELLO!
Updated in March 2011. After a year of use and compared to all my other guitars, this guitar is a must. This is the best finish, it does not go out of tune, bravo, mechanical, no rope does frieze, everything is clean, perfect! The sound is also perfect and, finally, distortion (with an amp or a pedal modeling), it holds up in all styles!
Overall quality flawless, perfect, Fender!

ezekielhimself's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- Fixed bridge "fender" typical 80 with its six bridges
- 2 volume and tone pots + 1 slcteur microphone positions 3 (severe, Mlenge, acute)
- Channel Profile "C" rather fine
- Channel trs so late while a pice Saddle: single, sober, "devilishly comfortable" !!!!!
- Good Access in acute, m ^ me time is a 22 round boxes,
- Ergonomics, although this is a cot and not a strat tl, then one may have to adapt (but rest assured you've trs quickly!)
- On the tl "sound" is "radical" (typ but it has to be loved !!!!)
- Ah! Yes it is a style of my zik "rock n 'roll" and then jazz blues brf I'm not going all the deficits!!
- Play a 30-channel MarshallJTM clear! rve is an on-air le'Marshall Anniversary in crunch ... What up!! for all types of amplifiers is a guitar that is played in "clear" "crunch" and not with mga saturations or it loses its "identity"
- I get this beautiful Grae's "clear" dry and crunchy, oily and dry as trs typ but hey it's good for is that I have also chosen!
- I love the whole look, well, comfort "can a rude" and especially what "his" typical dry m ^ me was empty, not a branch it sound projection of hell ...
- I bought this guitar in 2001, for the record I was looking for a "Start" and as in addition to being a fan of Clapton I'm a fan of Richie Kotzen ... I say all the fawn that j'achte tl now or later ... bullshit because I took time to tame! I had a good year before they can do it "sounds" like I wanted what I like most everything bein ... I love the sound, comfort, look, I must say mine is red with a plate mtallise gray celluloid has a mouth of hell ... (go see it on my profile!) Mystra one accompanied him: the number "2" martel derrire his head, I look far and in fact I knew that dernirement c'tait by what it silent "second CATEGORY" a sort was done in factories at the time of expditions (source Fender France) for a second-digger! it sounds, I got shovels and I still have some (not counting the one I try and I play with my friends rgulirement) and much is my guitar "prf re "!!!! yes I would do without this choice hsitations

Samu15's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Alder body, rosewood handle Saddle with 22 frets, pickups Fender U.S. American Series bridge with strings through-six bridges, this is essentially.
The finish is good trs, the frets do not hang. For those looking for really small bte CONTRL the volume on mine silent loose.
The varnish is a little fragile (it does not wear out gradually as a nitro lacquer Highway One, but he can not bear the slightest shock).
Personally I love the neck profile, it can easily play in bars or from the thumb on top. CHAC is good for acute without being exceptional (we feel the heel), the guitar is well balance.
The sound is on, all fawns no thirty six thousand possible combinations!
Question comfort, Tele with no bevel is done better elsewhere, but we also like the Tele for its default!
Some criticize him of being chastened by a report MODEL vintage or '52 or '62 RI, the other prfreront and less capricious and mat.
I could compare my Tele Body Alder / rosewood fingerboard with another body American Series frne / key stocky, it sounds more "smooth", less slamming, but it remains even when the typical grain, slightly sour, the Telecaster, it passes easily into a mix.
The neck pickup is smooth the sharp slap well.
I have over the past year, I love it! I tried a Nashville and Highway 1, it is clearly in the range above, in terms of sound and finish.
The price is the absolute lev stepfather just in the range, but the box is included.
tonioux's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
The handle is a great tele mache round enough, access to acute is huge, superb ergonomics (perfect balance ...) who has a gibson will not be out of place tro side handle (cons with nothing to do .. .: p)
With a micro Di Marzio bridge (because the original bolt a bit and lacks aggressiveness) is sublime! a distortion that starts like clockwork greasy ideal for rock / metal / pop my marshall began badly bear! , What about the neck pickup ... good it feels that there is a reverb built into a very clean punchy! ideal for blues / funk / acoustic frankly it's superb! against distortion in by the neck pickup is horrible but the di Marzio is for! I put 10
It's frankly a beautiful jewelry! I'm really a fan of fender telecaster in particular (the layers are thinner neck is always a different type of games) are excellent models US EXCEPT original bridge pickup and electronics that could have been more neat but with all the remakes has OCCAZ where I put my di Marzio is the thunder I have the equivalent of a deluxe, in short a beautiful skyscraper that will please any fan of telecaster ...
wanacoco's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Fender Telecaster American series (018402700) 3colors sunburst.
... Telecaster everything over standard ...!
Note max because that's all I expected.
I think this type of neck Fender ttrès are easy to learn, as thin and narrow enough not to have felt like a log in his hands.
I also play a Gibson Les Paul Classic, and I wanted something diametrically opposed to the level of touch, you win. Contrary to an opinion that was asked earlier, I think the weight is pretty insignificant in the face of tanks gibson ... I think it's honest.
I put 9 because I feel comfortable playing really great, I saw this since I scratch, just a little flat for access to acute that will not be easy for small mimine ...
Weight checked on a request: 3.5 kg for telecaster
against 4.4 kg for a Gibson Les Paul Classic
Coming from the world of punk rock, so I played on Gibson Les Paul Classic + mesa rectoverb, need power, and contrast with 2nd guitar on Yamaha Pacifica + Laney VH100R.
Marriage is good because very complementary.
Today only guitarist, I prefer to opt for versatility.
So tele + mesa, the clean sound is very good, warm and clear (maybe not as much as Fender + fender banging, I grant you).
On boosted channel, low gain, the sound is very warm, and as soon as you start typing in the high gain, we quickly realized the wonderful dynamics of this guitar.
Even putting the two knobs at the bottom of the guitar, piano attack very clear sound casi / crunchy, and when you start to pick the oatmeal, you feel the power and reach the edge.
Still better than having to manage one or more pedals to the feet, you can clearly handle the size of your attack with his right hand and that's really good, this guitar is an extension of my soul, there is no other word ...
The Les Paul is very hard to hold at that level, it comes out right away too ...
Guitar bought 2 months ago € 1200 in stores, compared with a 50th anniversary stratovolcano (very good too!), I find that the tele goes further in cutting edge, cutting ...
great versatility, there's only move the selector microphones to realize ...
That said I would not use it either to play the big metal big huge distortion, I think it is more its reach, it takes humbucker ...
That said, I recommend strongly to all those (and those!) Who are looking to try this instrument, because as you know, this is only my opinion.
As soon as I got it in the hands I knew I will leave with ...
Good hunting everyone, feel free to mail me if need more info (n.gaillard357 @ laposte.net)
iggy25's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
With time and the slap of the discovery last, I would add one small problem: The microphone is good but the quality of the violin can make the purchase of microphones péchus more feasible. The same applies to mécanniques are still correct.
In short, a violin not perfect but good for the price level seems to me correct.
The neck (all maple with me) is a real massacre !!!!! While the kings of Shreds really will not like. In fact the handle is not an ironing board but it is very ergonomic. Let me explain: it is slightly curved on the top which is great for swinging arrangements for hours without getting tired but this may baffled at large displacements on the handle.
No complaints from its pure fender with a neck pickup for rhythm and nikel a bridge pickup that how to say ..... "Twang" like hell every time it's nirvana!
Well measured intermediate position, the emphases in emerge atttaques particularly well.
Delta tone is nice too but nothing frankly staggering.
A great little scratch to the sound we love tv
Well above models mex I've tried.
BlueChris's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Channel 22 Frets
6 Bridge bridges
3 position selector, one volume, one Tone
The handle is enjoyable trs, satin varnish for what something is.
It falls well under the palm of the hand.
CHAC is correct to acute
I like my body shape, no problem to play sitting or standing.
There is no recess dcoupe stomach, but it is well trs
The classics are the rglages tl simple ....
The bridge allows a six bridges rglage prcis.
No problem-style pop, rock, blues, she can do anything.
For sounds such as "metal" go your way.
What I Sidr is the punch clear sound that you get on micro sleeves & position centrale.Idem with its crunchy.
I use the micro Acute sounds a bit more saturated ...
Only BMOL, the microphones are quite sensitive to interference collection's outdoor ...
Flight few months now I use it.
Nothing to do with the Start or Les Paul, diffrent's all.
Essay Tl US few in store, I have not seen a noticeable diffrence MODEL autre.De a fawn all it takes a few weeks to adjust and the guitar "do".
The finish is good trs, I just down a bit the height of the bridges up to find my feet.
No regrets about my choice, although prices still rising ...
