MGR/Chris Heeter's review"Fender Toronado"

Fender Deluxe Toronado
I bought this guitar at Sam Ash (before I discovered Guitar Center), for about $525. What a purdy one she is!

It stays in tune pretty well as well.The Toronado looks amazing. I bought it in orange, and it definitely stands out. This guitar is very easy to play and I love it to death. It plays very well and I wouldn't dare sell it for a long long time. It's the best built mexican Fender out there in my opinion because it plays better than any other mexi tele or strat that I've played, and it also looks prettier. It stays in tune pretty well also.

About a year after owning it, a volume knob fell off, but it's nothing that some super glue and careful placement can't fix. I made the mistake of pressing real hard on it after I glued it back on and it sort of grinds against the body of the guitar, but it's not noticable when performing. There is a surprising amount of feedback from this guitar, and it messes with me when i play shows, but it's nothing a few seymour duncans can't fix! I'd highly recommend replacing the atomic humbuckers with seymours.

Very solid. It's built very well and after 2 years of owning it, the only things that have come loose are the volume knobs. The guitarist of Brandtson plays a red toronado, so that proves that it has good enough quality for even touring bands.

Good stuff! I'd recommend this guitar for anyone from intermediate to pro. I love it so much and it's treated me well throughout all the shows i've played despite the feedback issue. But again, if you replace them with some seymour duncan pickups, then you'll be set. I would rate it a 5 if it wasn't for that little problem. GREAT BUY!

Fender Deluxe Toronado
e-bay. I paid 380 dollars for it.

the coolest fender body. Humbuckers.For that price is the best deal you can get.

I only had problems with the pickup swith, sometimes moves by itself.

good construction, really solid. Kind of heavy. Well finished.

Some people say they don't really like its clean sound. I think it is very good and warm. Obviously it is different from a single coil.

Fender Deluxe Toronado
I got this guitar from Mars in Tampa for about 500 dollars.

When i first saw this guitar at Mars,I thought it was the coolest thing because it looks and feels similar to the jaguar.I took it down then plugged it in and was amazed at the sound and tonal quality this thing has. This warmth makes it the perfect guitar for any rhythm player.I was quickly persuaded to get it, and a few months later,it was mine.

There aren't that many things wrong with this guitar.It may not be the best guitar for a lead player but could probably handle it with little or no problems.

I'll say it's built pretty solid.I've only had a few minor problems with this unit such as the bridge pick up fell out and the knobs are pretty loose.Maybe thats because i'm pretty abusive to guitars and tend to drop it on occasion. All of the problems i've had took less than two minutes to fix.

Overall,this guitar doesn't suck.It's a great sound for a not so big price.

Fender Deluxe Toronado
Manufacture of quality mexiquaine trs correct.
RULES IMMEDIATE rception a luthier, he confirmed that the guitar n'tait absolutely RULES, but well made.
2 humbuckers, 2 volume, 2 tone, 3-position slecteur

UTILIZATION

Unlike electronics (more Les Paul), recall that the handle is in fender. Particulirement not end, the handle is trs enjoyable without being a highway for many mtalleux sr.

SOUNDS

At the sound of it s'loigne fender and you have even forgotten compltement the stat ... Obviously because of the double one approaches a harder rock. I use it on an ENGL Ritchie Blackmore and is trs complmentaire with my Les Paul Std. The sound of the Toronado is rough, well suited for his style in a little "crading". The clear sound of the neck pickup is round trs, trs enjoyable.

OVERALL OPINION

My overall opinion is positive trs. A guitar playing both enjoyable than sitting upright. Lgre and well balance.
I chose it because I'm not addicted strata / microphones simple and I tried something good complmentaire from a Les Paul: For me this guitar is idalie.
Although sr, it is not a guitar and luxury cot manufacturing quality is not a Swiss watch (which I shrink a dcolle a bit to the 12th case) but it's great for a second guitar, a mule for concerts .. etc.

Fender Deluxe Toronado


Deluxe Model Series made in Mexico made from 1998 to 2003.

Made in Mexico. it's actually the first fender designed from the plant to Ensenada.

Poplar body

round 24 3 / 4 "maple, rosewood key

22 medium jumbo frets

bridge crossing

2 humbuckers Fender "Atomic-Humbuckers"

UTILIZATION

Handle very nice (must love the logs what, I'm a fan)

access to acute, it seems to me but I play rhythm rather

good ergonomics, it is very heavy. I'm used to the jaguar, they are very close in terms of shape, weight and race.

we obtain immediately a sound warm and sweet. very complementary with the jaguar about me.

SOUNDS

For the sound I got what I wanted, with a fender humbuckers. it is said that "it is the fender gibson of." I'll change the pickups can be if I get tired of them, for now all is well.
as described above is warm and soft but not greasy like a gibson. it does not bleed at all with my vox.
its pretty clear with little effect (like reverb and tremolo on a Vox), the crunch really not bad.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for several weeks.
I like the sound of humbuckers, shape (slightly different from the Jazzmaster / Jaguar), color (yellow silver pickguard with graffiti about me).
good value for money
Yes, I would do this choice, I wanted it anyway.
it is rather rare, we see little opportunity. the guy is one of Dionysus.
