TeleFunk's review"Wicked sound for a starter set"

Fender Standard Telecaster [2009-2018]
Made in Mexico, with volume, tone & pickup selectors (between the neck, bridge, or both), 22 frets

UTILIZATION

All the way back in November of 2005, I decided I wanted to learn to play the electric guitar and wanted something good to start with that was one step above the cheapest (i.e. above the Squier series back then, which is crazy because now Squier actually makes some great-sounding starter guitars...)

My friend (who's a fantastic guitarist) would pick up the guitars and play them and I would judge them by sound. I had this predetermined goal of getting a Strat à la David Gilmour, but when he compared the mexican-made strat with the comparatively affordable mexican standard tele, there was no question the Tele had better sound.

It had that typical Tele-twang, but sounded fantastic both in clean and distorted settings. Additionally, this is one of the most playable/user-friendly guitars I've ever touched in the 9 years since...People will call me crazy but I prefer the touch, feel and playability (and price ;) ) of this guitar to my buddy's Les Paul....

And after all these years, apart from a few bumps and scratches, the axe still sounds true, holding its tuning as well as a dear place in my heart

SOUNDS

Ive used it with Line 6 spider IVs, the tiny terror, and some others I can't even remember.

It's very playable and sounds great clean, crunchy or distorted, but as I love playing melodically, choosing the right notes, and am by no means a shredder, I love keeping it simple and playing on a clean fender amp with a bit of reverb and just letting the guitar speak for itself!

*I will say* At times, the twanginess is too much for me (obviously not as sonically pleasing compared to this tele's more expensive big brothers...)

OVERALL OPINION

At the time, I bought this at Guitar Center in southern California when the MSRP was $499 but the actual retail price was $349. For that price, I find this guitar unbeatable, and was not only a good starter guitar, but worthy of playing a few gigs in the years that followed the original purchase.

Honestly, the only con (at least for my playing style and preference) is it's a little too twangy. That's it.

I don't regret buying this as my first guitar EVER. The only guitar to my knowledge that I believe to be a better value and has a fantastic sound (albeit with a flimsier structure) is the Squier Jazzmaster (the only problem is it shows the damn 'squier' logo on the neck instead of the iconic 'fender telecaster' :) )

iamqman's review"Metallica ....wait .....metallicblue"

Fender Standard Telecaster [2009-2018]
Fender telecaster is it great sounding instrument that has a unique feel and tone all to itself. Even though it's a Fender brand product it has its own natural feel very different than the Fender Stratocaster guitar. It's a nice bright spanky tone that works well with a clean amplifier to a medium overdriven amplifier. It doesn't really do justice for any type of high gain sounds but anything where you can hear mild gain it will really bring out the natural tone and character of your playing. It's a very dynamic guitar as well and I think it's a little bit more dynamic than a Strat guitar. Meaning I can hear every single note plucked and nuance of my playing quite well.

SOUNDS


The Fender Telecaster basically has two single coil pickups, a volume control knob, and a tone control knob and that's pretty much it up as far as features go. So therefore there's nothing to be a lot of versatility in a senses using different pickups or if you have humbuckers combined with single coil pickup's. Overall it's a pretty basic and simple design but was revolutionary at the time of his creation. The tone of these guitars are fantastic and my opinion. They have a unique sound and sustain that is little bit better than a Fender Stratocaster guitar. The tone is a little bit crisp and cutting but the sustain is a little bit different in the way it feels and drawn out. Overall this is the kind guitar that you're going to use if you need a specific sound that only a Telecaster can provide. It's a fun instrument and I recommended to anybody.

OVERALL OPINION


The Fender Telecasters usually range around $900 to you about $1400 depending on what version or reissued that you might half. There are some that are custom-built or relict or whatever that do cost a lot more than that but the average medium range would be somewhere around there for this guitar. It's a nice crisp clean guitar that sounds very good and I recommended it to every guitar player who needs a specific time that only this guitar can provide.

iamqman's review"Black and sweet"

Fender Standard Telecaster [2009-2018]
I pretty much love everything there is about the fender telecaster guitar. It has a great look a great feel and superb tone. The body shape is one of the most iconic guitar shapes that the world has ever known. The tone is a very fender tone but completely different than the Fender Stratocaster town. It has a shimmery or more cleaner tone and its own unique sustain. Overall it is a very cool sounding and looking guitar.

SOUNDS


The tone of the fender telecaster is quite exceptional tone. It has a unique sustain that feels better than the Fender Stratocaster. It features two single coil pickups which gives you a good clean shiny tone if you mix it with a clean amplifier. I love the way this guitar sounds when mixed with a good overdrive pedal into clean in. Couple that with a decent sounding delay pedal and you have a mix for a right rock guitar tone.

Overall this is an amazing sounding guitar and is a great guitar for gigging and recording. I suggest swapping out the pick ups because I never like the sound of offender pick up. Fender makes amazing sounding guitars and very versatile sounding guitars but there pickups are just plain lousy. I would swap these out for whatever pick up you prefer to most. The alnico ones are a bit better than their Texas pickups but I would still swap these out anyways.

OVERALL OPINION

I highly recommend this guitar to anyone he wants that particular fender telecaster town. It is very unique and different from a Gibson Les Paul or a Fender Stratocaster. At new you can find these guitars for right around $1000. That is an exceptional price for an American guitar that sounds amazing and feels exceptional. I highly recommend every guitarist to own a Fender telecaster of some sort because it has such a great and unique tone that is different from any other guitar shape out there.

iamqman's review"Nice snowstorm Tele"

Fender Standard Telecaster [2009-2018]
Fender is probably the biggest music company in the world when it comes to amps and guitars. They have singled handily take probably the largest portion of the amp and guitar market. Their instruments have been played all over the world from beginner learning guitar players to the best professionals in the world. Any guitar who has ever been playing the guitar or even seen a guitar has probably come across a Fender Telecaster at some point.

This is great guitar for those needing a solid sounding Fender telecaster made in America. This guitar has a great feel and pleasurable tone. The instrument gets a solid sustain and a nice rounded clean tone that is fitting for many country guitarists and mild gain players. It is one of the most easily recognized guitars shapes and guitars in the world and one of the most easily recognizable sounding guitars as well.

SOUNDS

The tone of these guitars do not change from any other Fender Telecaster that anyone has ever played. If you have played one American Fender Telecaster than you know exactly how one sounds. There is a reason why so many people have turned to the Tele for their tonal needs. They have a great feel and ease of playing that makes for a quick comfort and tone that is unmistakably a Fender Telecaster. There isn't too much variation of tone between Teles, some have a better feel that others and some resonate better than others, but that goes for any guitar built. You can tell the difference in a Gibson Les Paul, a Fender Telecaster, and Fender Stratocaster. They each have their own tone and sound that uniquely their own. So the Tele will do only what a Tele will do and a Les Paul can't touch that and visa versa.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these guitars come in right at around $999 which is a steal of a great price. If I were in the market this would be about the best you could do for an American made Fender Telecaster guitar. I would recommend everyone to own at least one Fender Telecaster. They are a great for clean player's who need a clean gain tone or a good sparkling tone.
