Your comments or feed back will bee much appreciated so don’t be shy leave some message’s! Thank You!
Guitar Gear is one of the most misunderstood lessons to learn because mixing and matching gear is kind of difficult and time-consuming plus the money you might spend to get that right sound you may be looking for well I guess you are starting to get the picture. Okay so before you go and purchase something you may not need let me clear up a few things up and we will take a look at if this is worthwhile or not? Alright, with the wide range of products out there for electronics,processors,foot pedal a switches and mount rack systems.
You will probably get over whelmed, not only that it will take me a year or more to write this all out for you, lol so here’s what I am going to do I will give you something that I have done for over 35 years and that is mostly unless you are playing a lot of music that require effects and what not I mostly use and this is no word of a lie just my straight amplifier sound with some re verb from the amp and that’s it! Of-course I have a foot switch to switch between the clean and distortion channels but that is all once in a while I use a Wah, pedal for certain songs but other than that the amplifier will give you all the clean and distorted sounds for leads and it is mainly what every good guitar player does anyway. If you really think about it back in the 50’s and 60’s when all this was new to the music world they really had minimal or no effects pedals or processors not nearly anything like that was unheard of and when you come right down to it all the guitar leads in the song Stairway to Heaven by Led Zeppelin’s : Jimmy Page had no effects what so ever and it is still the number one (1) greatest guitar leads ever!
Now don’t get me wrong here , if they would have had the technologies of today I would bet they would have use them or some of them anyway! I do have effects pedals but I don’t choose to use them. I prefer to use Boss pedals than any other type if I do use any because Boss happens to have great quality products. Other’s might be like Line 6 or Digi Tech are a couple more and there are many other’s and all different types like Delay,Distortion,Flange,Phasor’s and Chorus to name a few of those, there is an endless supply out there now a days and” buyer beware!” So this being said, I hope I have been helpful to your quest with a purchase for effects or no effects , to end, to each his / her own! Thank You for reading . “If you need more info just leave a message!” God Bless and Rock On!

The Fender American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar is a pro player’s axe that delivers authentic Tele vibe. American Series pickups and deluxe hardware with original ’52 ash or alder body dimensions deliver more resonance and tone. The maple neck has a modern C shape with rolled edges and highly finished frets for easier playability. The detailed nut eliminates rattles and improves tuning stability. Custom staggered tuning machines eliminate the need for one of the string trees. Staggered pole pieces in the pickups provide balanced output across all strings and especially improves tone for the G-string.
The return of the American Standard Series Telecaster continues Fender’s tradition of commitment to the people who play Fender instruments out there in the real world. Today’s American Standard Telecaster guitars are worthy heirs of their revered ancestors—mindful of player needs and taking full advantage of modern advances, yet remaining completely true to the elements and spirit that made these instruments legendary in the first place. Improvements include redesigned bridges, neck and body finishes, and a Fender-exclusive high-tech molded case. Still there are the beloved hand-rolled fingerboard edges, Alnico V pickups, and staggered tuning machines for tone and stability guaranteed to last a lifetime (with its limited lifetime warranty)! So make history with the redesigned American Standard!
American Standard Tele® Bridge
Gives sought-after tone with modern improvements (6-saddle adjustability, no ashtray edges). Redesigned plate features a classic styled Fender stamp on chrome-plated brass. Brass and steel are the secrets to the Tele sound!
Bridge Component Specifics:
American Standard saddles – The original vintage-style Fender bent steel adjustable saddle is one of the components that give vintage Fenders their tonal ‘mojo’. Fender conducted tone comparison tests, and fell in love with them all over again. They have a wider tonal range and more character many other saddles. Then Fender improved them; narrowing the spacing to afford more room (and complement the bigger frets and rolled edges), and also elongated the string slot to reduce friction and string breakage, while improving the string break angle over the primary contact point.
The combination of steel saddles with a brass plate harks back to the magic combination of the most sought-after vintage Tele guitars (which had steel plate/brass saddles). The plate also features two extra mounting screws to improve resonance and body contact (as well as eliminating ‘squeals’), and a stylized Fender logo to class up the instrument and nod to the design of ’60s era Fenders (like Jaguar and Mustang bridges).
Neck Gloss and Tint
Seemingly a small or less important feature, this is a major feature. The old necks were satin all over primarily for the feel of the back of the neck. On these American Standards Fender kept the satin neck back, but still gave the rich tint and luster of a gloss finish to the fretboard. When looking at the old and new side by side in comparison, there is no arguing that these necks look classier and more detailed and ‘finished’.
Thinner Body Undercoat
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 switched to an undercoat that is thinner, and that allows the body to flex and resonate more, while retaining the cosmetic advantages of an undercoat.
Fender SKB Case
The case is a true advancement in guitar presentation and protection. It is stackable, it balances perfectly, it is TSA-lock-equipped, and has glass reinforced nylon trigger latches and a killer form-fitted plush interior.
