The Fender Telecaster has to be one of my absolutely favorite guitars in the world. This is a classic looking guitar and one of the most iconic guitars that you will ever see. This is a two-tone Sunburst paint job which only has a nice yellow natural wood tone with the darker outer edge paint job. The two tone is different from the three toned because it is missing the nice amber red burst within this paint job. The fretboard is a nice hard maple which gives a good balance overall to the ash body.

SOUNDS

This guitar sounds exceptionally well with a sender Hot Rod Deluxe amplifier. You don't need to dial this guitar in too much because it only has the volume and tone control knobs. It also has a pickup selector switch from the bridge in that position. This thing stays pretty well in tune with the tuners that Fender provides.

This is one of the sharpest classic looking guitars that I've seen in this series. The white pick up guard is a good contrast to the light sunburst on the paint job. The maple neck helps to balance out the body any add more silky frequencies to get warm defining tone. The overall feel of this guitar is much different Stratocaster. It has a different sustain any different drive and it's voicing. You don't have to prefer one over the other but I think they're equally different to own both.

OVERALL OPINION

I highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for this particular sound. This is a good sound for a clean guitar tone or a mild overdrive tone. Many country players grab this guitar for their touring and recording needs. This will be a good guitar that can be passed down to your kids one day. It has such a good quality workmanship in the build process involved and in the manufacturing of these guitars.

At new you can find these guitars online or in most guitar shops for right around $999. That is an exceptional price for a high quality American-built guitar. This will be a long life guitar if you treat it well.
