Fender has been building guitars for over 60 years. It's built some of the most iconic guitars for professional and non-professional musicians. Fenter telecaster has a great tone and a fantastic unique sustain that is very different than a Gibson Les Paul any Fender Stratocaster. It has its own unique flavor and warm tone that can only be an distinctly be a Fender telecaster.

When I think of a Fender telecaster I think of a good clean guitar I can get a very clean distorted sound and a good note separation. This is a kind of guitar that many country guitarist choose for their touring and recording needs.

I love the sound of this guitar and the way in match is a good sender clean amp. I also like the way this guitar sounds with a Marshall Lexi or a JCM 800 100 W amplifier. There's something that mixes and blends with the Marshall amplifier any good solid fender telecaster guitar. If you use a good overdrive pedal such as an OCD pedal or even an Ibanez tube screamer and you can get a very good tight gainey distortion sound.

When using this guitar a good amp and a good overdrive pedal you can get a very good classic rock tone. My favorite sound with this guitar has to be a fender hot Rod Deluxe amplifier and Ibanez tube screamer and a good analog delay pedal. The mixture with that gear and this guitar is a match made in heaven.


You can find these guitars for right around $1000 retail. That is a great price for American built guitar.I highly recommend this guitar to anyone wanting a classic Fender telecaster sound. I love the way this vintage white paint job ages into a cream white overtime. I would have to say that the natural beauty of the white paint job gets better with time with a great vintage look and feel.
