Squier’s Gold Edition series celebrates four decades of history with blinged-out models of all Fender’s classic guitars and basses. From the pickguard to the bridge and even the washers, the 40th-anniversary Telecaster is studded with striking all-gold hardware. It also boasts a stunning bound Indian laurel neck with pearloid blocks, a late-'60s feature that Music Experience guitarists find complements this guitar’s decked-out cosmetics. A pair of Fender-designed alnico single-coils equips this guitar with an authentic Tele Twang, producing rich lows and cutting highs. Stunning looks, comfortable playability, and incredible sound: the Gold Edition series is a gold mine of 40 years of high-quality Squier instruments.

Fender Squier 40th Anniversary Telecaster Gold Edition at a Glance:

  • Gold-plated hardware
  • Gold anodized aluminum pickguard
  • Gloss body and neck finish
  • Vintage-style 3-saddle string-through-body bridge
  • Vintage-style tuning machines

Custom set of alnico single-coil pickups

To get a real vintage sound from a guitar, discerning guitarists at Music Experience know that you need to start with great pickups. The Fender-designed alnico single-coil Tele pickups in the Squier 40th-anniversary Gold Edition Telecaster nail those classic tones. You'll love the clear, punchy sounds, which are perfect for playing country, blues, jazz, rock, or pop. Sonically (and visually), these pickups punctuate the vintage appeal of this guitar.

Vintage appointments with modern playability

The alnico pickups, the 3-saddle bridge, and the vintage tuning keys cover the vintage side of things. But the 9.5-inch fingerboard radius gives you a comfortable playing surface that allows for wider string bends than the 7.25-inch radius of vintage guitars. While being rounded enough for comfortable chording, this radius is perfect for double-stop bends, wide vibrato, and even bends over a whole step. And the modern "C"-shaped neck feels just right, smoothing the way for fleet-fingered fretting.
