Fender is probably the biggest music company in the world when it comes to amp and guitars. They have been played all over the world from beginner learning guitar players to the best professionals in the world. Any guitar who has ever been playing the guitar longer than a few year most likely have picked up owned a Fender Stratocaster at some point.

This is great guitar for those needing a solid sounding Fender telecaster made in America. This guitar has a great feel and suburb tone to match. The instrument get get a great sustain and a nice rounded clean tone all the same. It is one of the most easily recognized guitars shapes and guitars in the world. This has a better pickup installed that make it more optimum in my eyes. Usually you have to replace those garbage sounding Fender pickups.

UTILIZATION

* Alnico V pickups
* Deluxe hardware
* Solid alder body black
* Modern C-shaped maple neck with rich, deep neck tint, glossed neck fretboard with satin back and rolled edges
* Delta-tone™ no-load circuit
* Highly finished frets
* Detailed nut work
* Bent steel Fender saddles
* American Standard Tele® Bridge Plate (steel saddles and brass plate) for improved resonance
* Thinner undercoat for improved body resonance
* Rosewood or maple fretboard
* Staggered machine heads


SOUNDS

The tone is a slap in the face of anyone who think that a Telecaster is a country guitar. This guitar can do any style of music except metal. You can play county rock, pop and everything of every genre in between. You can dial this guitar into a nice grind and get those single coils singing with ease on a nicely distortion amp. These pickups are much better that some of the other ones offed by Fender. These ones do not need to be replaced as they are top of the line Alnico V bar, which means there are 5 alnico magnets in each single coil pickup.

This guitar was just a pure enjoyment to play with and even record with. I would change the pickups though as Fender pickups are about the worst in the business. I have always liked the tone of a Fender Telecaster with a good Fender amp. I love the sound of a tubescreamer in front with a promising delay pedal of some kind and the combination from all of that gear as just a delight. The tone and sustain was phenomenal and pleasing to the ears.

OVERALL OPINION

At new these guitars come in right at around $999 which is a steal of a great price. If I were in the market this would be about the best you could do for an American made Fender guitar. I would recommend everyone to own at least one Fender Telecaster. They are a great addition to the team.
