Here's what Squier say about the Standard Tele:
The Standard Telecaster® guitar features a fast-action neck profile modeled on a late '60s Telecaster. A hot single-coil pickup in the bridge position provides all the bite you want for stinging leads. In the neck position, the Standard Telecaster's warm-sounding chrome-covered single-coil pickup helps you find your own voice.
CHROME-COVERED SINGLE-COIL PICKUP
The chrome-covered single-coil neck pickup is a classic Telecaster design element.
HOT SINGLE-COIL PICKUP IN THE BRIDGE POSITION
A hot single-coil pickup in the bridge position cranks out plenty of hot-rodded rock tone.
"C"-SHAPED NECK PROFILE
The comfortable "C"-shaped neck profile of this instrument (the shape of the neck in cross section) is sculpted to impart a vintage-style playing feel. The most prevalent neck profile shape, it’s remarkably comfortable and is ideal for all playing styles.
