The fender telecaster is a cool and fun's guitar. It has a good field to the body and the neck is an exceptional feeling. The neck. Overall is a very thin or neck my hands than a Fender Stratocaster and deathly more than a Gibson Les Paul. This guitar neck is not quite in Ibanez guitar neck but is pretty close. It usually has a poly finish on the back where is an Ibanez neck is a boiled neck. So the neck itself is in the snooze but you can always get that sanded off.

The center telecaster is an iconic guitar in such a great guitar for most solid music. Many country players will turn to this guitar more than any other guitar due to its very percussive sound and note separation. All of the notes when you play or strum or even any kind of lead line racing are very separated from each other. This allow someone to play a medium to low gain setting and would really cut those tones and notes in the mix. They have a very fast neck so country players also like the tone of this guitar.

I really like the time of this guitar when you couple it with a good medium to low gain amplifier such as a center twin reverb or send her hot Rod deluxe amplifier. Those amplifiers are just made for guitars and vice versa. When you use a nice overdrive pedal and a good analog delay pedal or course petal. Overall this is a great guitar for any hard rock player all the way down to me any rock or country player. All the rock guitar players in England grab this guitar because of it's great for success of tone and overall three-dimensional tone. It feels good in the mix and just a great overall guitar it does have some single coil pick up, so you will need to really beef up your distortion if you want to play this in a hard rock setting.


I highly recommend this guitar to anyone is wanting a good solid clean American guitar. I knew you can find these guitars right around $1100 which is still at the price in my opinion. It's a fun guitar and a good complement to your guitar collection. I would recommend swapping out the pick ups for a better output pick up such as some Seymour Duncan's because the fender pickups are not very good overall. Don't get the job done but you can find a better pick up which really bring this guitar to life.
