Fender 2015 Limited Edition American Standard Double-Cut Telecaster Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
- Two Custom Shop single-coil pickups for huge tone
- Improved bridge design gives you increased sustain
- Thinner body undercoat for optimal body resonance
Two Custom Shop single-coil pickups for huge tone
The original Tele pickups had more twang than any two normal guitars, thanks to the single-coil pickups in the bridge and neck positions. The Fender Limited Edition American Standard Double-Cut Telecaster sports Custom Shop pickups with a Twisted Tele rhythm pickup and a vintage-style single-coil Telecaster bridge pickup. The Double-Cut Telecaster is incredibly responsive to its tone control, giving you the flexibility to fine-tune your tone. But turn the no-load tone controller all the way up to ten, and the tone circuit is actually removed completely from the signal path. You'll hit your amplifier with a hotter output and brighter tone than you'd get with the normal tone circuit. That alone makes the iconic tone of a Fender Limited Edition American Standard Double-Cut Telecaster a total steal!
Improved bridge design gives you increased sustain
The Fender Limited Edition American Standard Double-Cut Telecaster features an improved bridge design that serves up mondo sustain. The 5-screw-mounted brass bridge plate is loaded with bent-steel saddles with elongated string slots for increased resonance and sustain. The result is impressively improved sustain - which brings us back to the Tele's origins. As the first production solidbody guitar, Leo Fender's idea with the Esquier, and later the Broadcaster (as the Tele was originally called), was to mimic the solidity of the pedal steel, juicing sustain and volume while avoiding the feedback issues that tended to plague hollowbody guitars onstage.
Thinner body undercoat for optimal body resonance
An undercoat serves to give the paint a smooth surface to adhere to so you have a nice-looking finish. The thicker the undercoat, the more glass-like the finish, but the more constricted the guitar's body wood - which could affect tone. Fender has switched to a new undercoat that is thinner and allows the body to flex and resonate more while retaining the cosmetic advantages of an undercoat. The result? You get the tough-as-nails resilience of a modern poly finish with tonal characteristics that are more in line with classic lacquer finishes. With Fender's American Standard Telecaster, you get the best of both worlds.
