The new Fender Standard Telecaster Swirl model looks and sounds out of this world, with one of the most vividly arresting looks a Telecaster has ever had — a swirling, multi-colored marbled finish that looks like something from another planet.
Features include an alder body, maple neck with “modern C” profile and satin urethane back finish, 9.5″-radius maple fingerboard with 21 medium jumbo frets, dual single-coil pickups with three-way switching, three-ply black-white-black pickguard and knurled flat-top control knobs, and a string-through-body bridge with six block saddles.
Each Standard Telecaster Swirl body undergoes a unique finishing process, resulting in a design that is as random and one-of-a-kind as a thumbprint—simply put, no two are the same!
