Blacktop Humbucking Pickups
With two full-throated open-coil Blacktop pickups and a chrome/black pickup cover combination, new Standard models offer a striking new visual along with hotter vintage humbucking tones.
Modern Neck With "C" Profile
This instrument features a modern neck designed for comfort and performance, with a contemporary "C"-shaped profile (the shape of the neck in cross section) and a smooth back finish. Ideal for those who play with the thumb on the back or side of the neck.
Use the coil-splitting push-pull knob hidden in the tone control to activate only the outer coils of the bridge pickup and unlock classic single-coil tone.
Pure and simple, this instrument features classic Fender tone styling that evokes and honors the timeless Fender mainstays that came before it and contributed crucial DNA. From the quietest chord to the loudest note, and from the rear strap button to the top of the headstock, it’s the very essence of classic Fender design.
Adding to the lustrous look of the souped-up Standard Tele is an elegant black pickguard for a killer combination of sultry look with monster sound.
