40 years of the Squier Telecaster!

2022 marks Squier's 40th anniversary, and to celebrate, the brand has launched a series of limited-edition instruments - which of course include the legendary Telecaster. The Squier 40th Anniversary Telecaster, shown here in its striking Satin Mocha finish, is loaded with a set of Fender-designed AlNiCo single coil pickups, and the guitar's vintage looks are optimally enhanced by its robust aged chrome hardware. This anniversary model from Squier features a nyatoh body with a classic one-piece maple neck to provide a totally natural playing feel, and its two single coils deliver both the characteristic "Tele twang" and a sonic spectrum that covers everything from clean through to overdrive while retaining clarity and definition at all times. The guitar wouldn't be complete without the classic three-saddle Tele bridge, of course - and the neck plate also features a special "40th Anniversary" engraving.

Traditional vintage design

The sound of a Telecaster will eminently suit a wide range of musical styles, from Country and Blues to Rock & Roll in any of its many guises. What is more, the Telecaster has earned itself a reputation as one of the most playable guitars in the world, and the Squier 40th Anniversary Telecaster fully upholds that reputation by delivering pure playing comfort with its slim maple neck and 21 "narrow tall" frets. Its two New Player AlNiCo V single coils provide the typical Tele-type sound, complete with the instrument's signature "twang" and are governed by a simple control layout comprising a three-way selector switch and a single control each for volume and tone. The guitar's classic looks are further enhanced by its vintage-style "ashtray" bridge with three saddles and through-body stringing, which also increases the instrument's sustain and resonance.

For fans and collectors alike

Like every other Tele, the Squier 40th Anniversary Telecaster is a veritable workhorse that is designed for sonic flexibility right out of the gate. Despite its limited production run, this guitar also comes at a very affordable price, which makes it interesting for collectors as well as giving ambitious beginners the opportunity to get their hands on a limited-edition Tele that is unlikely to be available with the same combination of features ever again. As one would expect, this anniversary-edition Squier is a versatile instrument in the rehearsal room, on stage, and in the studio, where its sonic palette can be fully exploited and the player can enjoy the smooth playability with which the Telecaster has long been synonymous in every position on the fingerboard.

About Squier

Fender is without doubt one of the most legendary guitar and amplifier manufacturers of all time. The company was founded in 1946 by its namesake Leo Fender († 1991), whose innovative ideas brought a breath of fresh air into the musical world. His Telecaster, Stratocaster, Precision Bass, and Jazz Bass are not only classics – they also continue to shape the styles of musicians in countless genres to this day. Incidentally, Squier has existed as a company since the 19th century. It supplied Fender with strings right from the start, before being acquired by the company in 1965. Fender has been producing its iconic guitar and bass models at beginner-friendly prices under the Squier brand since 1982.

From Funk to Rock and from Soul to Blues

The sound of the Telecaster is inextricably woven into the fabric of Rock music history, and in keeping with this tradition, the Squier 40th Anniversary Telecaster will capably handle numerous different musical styles, delivering everything from glassy, sonorous cleans with plenty of "Tele twang" through to gritty, punchy overdrive sounds for riff work and singing leads, all while retaining excellent presence. Despite only having three pickup combinations to choose from, players can get virtually any sound they want from the guitar's AlNiCo single coils, a task made all the easier by the guitar's excellent playability. Last but not least, the robust "aged chrome" hardware enhances the Telecaster's vintage character, and its "limited edition" status is sure to make it all the more special.

very pleasantly surprised
Kike D 21.09.2023
Bought it because of the end of summer deal. It took about 9 days to arrive to Barcelona.
idk if I got lucky or thomann´s QC is just THAT good: There were absolutely no sprouting frets, the neck feels buttery smooth, there are no gaps between the neck and neck pocket (which happens a lot in the squiers I've seen).

The finish is gorgeous, the internet pics don't make justice of how beautifulthe wood is.

The frets are of course not polished (I don´t think any instrument in this price range has polished frets), But they are definitely smooth and comfortable (and again, in better condition than most squiers that I've tried).

Only thing that I think is not top-notch is the neck pickup, it sounds good but it lacks some volume and tone IMO. However those are the same pickups on any clasic vibe as far as I know, so the only way to avoid that is either changing the pickups, or going for an actual Fender (I'd do the former).

Overall it is a gorgeous guitar that is constructed beautifully, and I am very happy with the quality control on mine.


The necks are amazing

I love specifically these finished guitar necks - I first got the anniversary bass and thought guitar necks are supposed to always feel like that - after playing fender guitars with different necks I realized that the playability of these are amazing. You also get the same quality as fender pickups in this guitar, so its a massive win that these exist.

Ich hab extra ein weilchen gewartet mit meine bewertung . Hab neue Saiten drauf gemacht und ein paar Wochen gespielt mit verschiedene effects Geräte usw . Es ist einfach klasse . Naturlich es ist keine Fender Telecaster aber das ist genau der wichtige Punkt .Für das Geld es ist klasse . Ich glaube auch die etas preiwerter Squiers werden auch gut. Im voraus , sorry für der etwas komisches Deutsch bin Schotte

Telecaster pour upgrader
Bluesride 30.11.2022
Reçue avec un jour d'avance, merci Thomann le paquet est arrivé nickel.
La boite de la guitare est elle aussi sans aucun accroc. Bon, on ouvre et la je trouve mon instrument impeccable bien protégé.
Première impression la guitare semble un peu terne mais cela me plait vraiment n'aimant pas trop le bling bling.
Manche agréable que je compte d'ailleurs changer pour un roasted maple Fender mieux assorti et plus agréable en main. Enfin la guitare est branchée après un rapide checkup des réglages qui par bonheur ont été correctement faits. Le son est très bon vu que c'est les mêmes que sur les players de fender. j'ai juste régler la hauteur du micro manche un peu basse à mon gout.
Cela en fait un excellent instrument à un prix correct pour upgrader et avoir un super instrument pour le prix d'une entrée de gamme a la maison mère.
