Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster LH [1998-2012]
This guitar was manufactured in the United States does.
It possde Saddle of a handle 21 frets. The handle is one pice (no wood diffrent for the key).
The body is Frne.
It has two single coil pickups, volume and tonality and a slecteur three positions. The bridge is a vintage bridge.


APRs have tried, and so used the sleeves Gibson, I find nanmoins trs enjoyable to touch and it has a good jouabilit. The hardness of the Saddle I have not shocked.
The handle end is wide, but I find it more extensively than pais other sleeve latest issue
Access in acute is marked by the pan shot, but like most of tl 21 boxes ...
I am however tonn weight-General for the guitar. it seemed that the more silent tlcaster lgre even if the body is in the frne. Any fawn I'm used mahogany "Les Paul" ...

Regarding the sound, this guitar is a real pleasure! sound in the bridge position is typical tlcaster ... it is not my position prfre although it sounds. As we shuffled against ds at the two microphones or as one moves to the neck pickup, a large palette of sounds monstrous opens us ...


The sound of this is really tlcaster trs enjoyable, though brilliant but at the same time soft playing effectively on the Tone or positions microphones.

The sound of the neck pickup is not made to do or because it mtal cash badly pronounced distortion. Currently I play a marshall JCM2000 and Marshall 1960A cabinet.
For all the sounds rock, jazz or crunch is terrible.

I plan to change the bridge pickup while asking the maker to keep a good balance in position with two microphones. I'd have the good guitar lends itself to all styles! ;-)


I bought this guitar ax United States two months ago and I fell in love. Yet I am rather aficionados of his Les Paul but tlcaster really sound and spirit part, it's really enjoyable to play diffrent but trs and costs.

I think the sound is much more interresting tlcaster that stratocaster sound (my opinion).

If it was again: All the same!

Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster LH [1998-2012]
Vintage reissue Telecaster, made in USA!
-21 Frets, 2 single coil pickups (1 stick lipstick and a bridge).
Easel-type vintage, three bridges, two strings per saddle.
-1 Volume, 1 tone, 1 3-position selector.
Channel 21 frets maple painted (thus clear button), mechanical vintage Fender. The neck is quite thin in width button, and its profile is U (vintage oblige!).

"I added the guitar comes in its case so Tweed (orange wig included inside!), With a modern bridge to self-assembly if you do not like the original, plus some key Allen, a vintage jack, and a vintage belt (as string).

So we have a very satisfying package, a very nice guitar, but on mine I was angry that two defects: the shield is insecure, that a gondola on the table of the guitar, and the selector button that falls alone if handled too (it just clips the selector) ... For a guitar that wants quality and a price so I think it is a heresy!
So I lower the note (I will put at least 9 originally) ...


From the grip, one is enchanted by this beautiful blonde ...

-The handle is initially unsettling because of its slender width, but well-marked U in thickness, but after a few hours playing, it tames it and makes fun of his velvet touch (nice polish!) and is fast, easy, thumb found a comfortable niche at the back.

-For the treble, it is not a Flying-V, but hey, it's Fender, and it does not play! So heel "square", screws and plate forces, but it is nice, although the 22 th box lacks a bit ...

"Then for Stratistes, forget what you know so far: No bevels, the guitar is carved into the log, the old! It's not as thick as a Les Paul, so it does not play comfortably, side weight, the guitar is pretty heavy for a Tele, but it is well balanced, the head remains in place even when assis.Les mechanical plays are vintage, so no oil bath, but take effective tuning.

-The sound, it's simple: the guitar resonates well with the naturalness, and when you connect, you scratch ... And we listen! It Boooo!


-The guitar is really good, we have a varied palette of sounds for a Telecaster! It's amazing! Personally, I play indie rock or progressive, and the sounds of the guitar are fine for me!

-I play at home on the Vox DA-5, in rehearsal, on a Marshall Valvestate combo and sometimes a JCM 800. Needless to say, with a JCM is transcendent ... The limb as I live in my home studio (Boss 900 CDs), and she keeps her fabulous grain under any circumstances. If I add a tube screamer and a Dunlop Wha, I feast in psychedelic! With a delay, forward the Floyd! But what's, my ancestors!

-In the neck position is a big surprise for me, it sounds super round, a real jazz guitar! With its clean, it is stunning, at least it is as round as Gibson!

Then, in an intermediate position was more nuanced sound, well-typed Fender, the tone is effective and progressive, we can color the sound at will! With distortion, it sounds very rock, as a stratum in the neck position! The combination of the two microphones adds to the sound of the attack, sustain is great for single coils.

Finally, in the bridge position, there is the "Twang" typical of Telecasters, the sound is bright without being aggressive to the ears, still alive and well kept, in distortion, it becomes a biting without being aggressive, boisterous and lively solos arpeggios in Crunch!

In summary, this guitar is much more versatile than I thought! The sounds are varied, from jazz to the confines of Hard through the country and punk! I have not found a sound that I hate! I do not carry them all, but I can have them! It's like having butter, butter and money ... smile of the dairy!


"I use this wonder for almost 3 years and I can not get bored!

+ The mouth of the shovel
small objects come with more!

- The 2 details (énervants!!) Cited above.

"I've tried Strats, Gibsons, but this one seems built for me! It is a delight.

-Compared to the price, I find that some details are worth being a little more finished, but the sound and the pleasure that gives the guitar make you forget those setbacks.

I would do without hesitation that choice!
