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.

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.

I have always liked the tone of a Fender Telecaster with a good Fender Hot Rod Deluxe amp. I would use an Ibanez tubescreamer in front with a Line 6 DL4 delay pedal and the combination from all of that gear as just a delight. The tone and sustain was phenomenal and pleasing to the ears. 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.


At new these guitars come in right at around $850 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.
