Fender Standard Telecaster Black 1994
Fender Standard Tele, made in Mexico 1994, black. You know what's handy? Having a mirror on hand at any time, so you can make sure your eyebrows are at their best. Also, it's handy to have a black Telecaster with which to decorate the sonic landscape you inhabit. This is a fairly early Mex-made example, so it's not fancy but it certainly does what a Tele should do. There's a bit of weight to it, which translates to a thick and bright midrange and a tight, tidy treble. The neck is fairly slim and sports a modern 9.5" radius and satin finish, so it's pretty quick under the fingers when required. Classic, but with a touch of glamour: just like you, right?
