Guitar factory in the USA, mine dates from 2007 (before the introduction of the new American Standard Series). It is hard tui book, with some accessories (jack, cloth rglage cl).
Alder body, rosewood handle Saddle with 22 frets, pickups Fender U.S. American Series bridge with strings through-six bridges, this is essentially.
The finish is good trs, the frets do not hang. For those looking for really small bte CONTRL the volume on mine silent loose.
The varnish is a little fragile (it does not wear out gradually as a nitro lacquer Highway One, but he can not bear the slightest shock).

UTILIZATION

Personally I love the neck profile, it can easily play in bars or from the thumb on top. CHAC is good for acute without being exceptional (we feel the heel), the guitar is well balance.
The sound is on, all fawns no thirty six thousand possible combinations!
Question comfort, Tele with no bevel is done better elsewhere, but we also like the Tele for its default!

SOUNDS

Some criticize him of being chastened by a report MODEL vintage or '52 or '62 RI, the other prfreront and less capricious and mat.
I could compare my Tele Body Alder / rosewood fingerboard with another body American Series frne / key stocky, it sounds more "smooth", less slamming, but it remains even when the typical grain, slightly sour, the Telecaster, it passes easily into a mix.
The neck pickup is smooth the sharp slap well.

OVERALL OPINION

I have over the past year, I love it! I tried a Nashville and Highway 1, it is clearly in the range above, in terms of sound and finish.
The price is the absolute lev stepfather just in the range, but the box is included.
