The American Ash Telecaster Deluxe model 2004, is as its name indicates the top model series made in the USA. The body is ash (the guitar is heavier than conventional models alder). The neck, maple, has 22 frets. The key type 52 'maple also the standard model is broken down into little rosewood. The two Samarium Cobalt Noiseless Tele pickups come with a 3 position switch (neck, double bridge) and the system S-1 switch that allows dual-position to the microphones in parallel (classical) or in series. Finally, two knobs for volume and tone.

UTILIZATION

The neck of this guitar is a treat. There are feelings of a telecaster with a level of finish that allows anything and everything, if you miss a note with this guitar, it is impossible to accuse the sleeve or the frets (which is the least we for a guitar in this category). Access to acute is correct (it is neither a Start nor a Rickenbacker). Useless to try to put a capo in the 14th box, but everything goes well and very well in the higher fields and this on any string. The form ... it's a telecaster is no surprise. The ash body makes the guitar heavier but quite reasonable.

SOUNDS

Sound: Typical of the telecaster. crystal clear sound, very "punchy". This guitar is known for its acute that it can get, and this is accompanied by a remarkable presence in low and medium. The new noiseless pickups are wonderful. Some fundamentalists of vintage telecaster blame these microphones to distort the sound 52 ', and it is possible that there is a difference, but this guitar that perfectly highlights the slightest nuance that you will bring to your game has no breath! Nothing! (Finished noisegate). The system S-1 switch, which can put both pickups in series, a fourth color makes this guitar sound: the sound is boosted (there is also a significant difference in volume compared to three other positions of the selector) . You lose a lot by then but it becomes more acute and sustain medium (already excellent position "classic": it's a telecaster). Coupled with a Vox AC-30 TB, the result is amazing. Fender amp on: beautiful, but a little too sharp slap, but it's history and taste settings. We find immediately the tone color of guitar playing telecaster (johnny Grennwood, Jeff Buckley, Andy Summers ...)

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar is a very, very, very, very great guitar. Both typical and versatile (to some extent), it allows a set fine and precise in any style (except perhaps metal, and still is to be tested). If we were to find a fault ... no, I do not see. For the price: Fender catalog and store, this guitar is € 1849 (highest price), but it occurs at a lower price on the net. Feel free to negotiate with the dealer, it is well worth it.
