The Fender Tele is a cool and simple design. It has a great feel and a fantastic look. This is a simple guitar with two single quill pick ups and volume control knob any tone control knob with a pick up selector. This is a very simple guitar but yet a extremely great sounding instrument. There isn't a whole lot to get in the way of tone with this instrument. There's not a lot of extra backs or switches or booths of any kind I get in the way of your guitars natural organic tone.

These guitars work in any music setting that you find yourself in. If you play anything from indie rock to pop rock or even hard rock then this is going to be a great setting for your rig for that style of music. If you use a high gain amplifier then it is going to be a mild tone overall and not very thick and saturated. If you have a clean amplifier such as a Fender twin reverb or fender Princeton amplifier then this guitar is really good match with those amps. I like to use this guitar with a fender Hot Rod Deluxe amplifier and a good overdrive pedal such as an Ibanez tube screamer and a nice digital or analog delay. When you have these pedals with this guitar you can get some great sonic tones.
At new you can find these guitars for around $1000 or so depending on the actual specs of the instrument. Some paint jobs have a little bit different price and such but nothing that will be outrageous. This is a great guitar for cleans and anyone needing a good solid guitar for this particular tone. A Strat and a LP will not sound like this and visa versa. So this is a good addition to any guitar collection.
