Designed for comfort
Whether you’re shopping for a youngster or just trying to learn the tricks of the 6-string trade, the Sonic Telecaster offers a feel free of intimidation and discomfort. Starting with its lightweight poplar body, you’ll hardly notice the weight resting on your knee during seated sessions, while the bearing on your neck when standing is designed to be minimal. The maple neck’s “C”-shaped profile provides comfortable chording and the necessary forgiving nature to combat discouragement while learning the ropes. Paired with its Tele-standard 25.5-inch scale length, the Sonic Telecaster is about as perfect a representation of “trainable meets traditional” as you’ll find — even the factory .009-gauge strings are quick to get used to!
Patented single-coil sparkle
Why do guitar fanatics love the Tele? One big reason is its iconic sharp, sparkly single-coil sound. Equipped with a pair of Ceramic Tele Single-Coil pickups in the original Telecaster configuration, the Sonic Telecaster delivers in spades. From country to rock, alternative, and beyond, nothing beats the sculptability of single-coil tones, making for the perfect benchmark for blossoming beginners. (Musiekwereld tip: the Sonic Telecaster can also produce a credible jazz tone — just roll-off the tone knob to taste.) Guitar legends like Jimmy Page, Bruce Springsteen, and Keith Richards have all favored that timeless Tele twang, and needless to say, it’s no mere coincidence!
