« Good wood on that guitar »

Publié le 08/10/11 à 14:34
Fender build some of the very best guitars in the world. They specialize in the Fender Stratocaster and telecaster guitars. The fender telecaster is more of a cleaner mild rock guitar. This is the kind of guitar and many countries guitar players choose for their primary guitar needs. This kind of guitar is going to give you an elegant clean sparkling tone fit for mild music.

SOUNDS

The tone of this guitar is very exquisite. The Rosewood fretboard mixed with the Alder body wood is a perfect blend and match for a great sounding guitar. I don't particularly like to pick up that is installed but they are decent magnetic pick ups. I would switch them out for a comparable Seymour Duncan pick up if I had the choice. I love the way he could fender telecaster sounds with a fender hot Rod Deluxe amplifier.

Using this guitar with that amplifier mixed with a good analog delay pedal any distortion pedal preferably from OCD or even Ibanez will fit very well with the sound of music that highlight the play. The analog delay and an overdriven pedal gets a sweet classic rock tone that is safe from most covered music and cover songs. You really can't get a bad tone out of this guitar. It is a players guitar and he very easy guitar to play chords and single note briefs with. The neck is very easy to play in your hand glides up and down the fretboard with ease.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars are fairy budget friendly and consumer friendly priced. At new you can find these guitars for right around the price of $999. That is a steal of a price. If you have ever played in Gibson Les Paul or a Fender Stratocaster then this is going to be a little bit of a different guitar feeling wise than those guitars. However, I highly recommend this guitar to anyone looking for this particular sound or who is interested in getting a cleaner guitar tone.
