    Selection of microphones: selector 3 positions: position 1: bridge pickup, position 2: neck and bridge pickups, Position 3 neck pickup.
    Controls: Master Volume, Master Tone

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is very nice. Slightly larger gap between the strings because on most strat, LP or other Telecasters. The interface is very nice. No notch but taking great hands in all situations. Access to acute is more than adequate. Mine, which is 2000, has the distinction of being extremely light. It sounds a lot empty. A real treat.

    SOUNDS

    It is suitable for any type of music. Everything. Is to choose after what he gets behind, amps, effects, etc ...
    The sound is both shiny, round, powerful and hot.
    The neck pickup is very original matte dark. Basically the 52 was for musicians wanting to approach the bass sounds with the microphone or register attacking Jazz. But a simple solder will allow you to make a standard neck pickup with lots of harmonics and roundness.
    The intermediate position is fairly neutral, interesting repertoire for a soft and balanced. The micro acute sharp, incisive attack when the instrument. It is more subtle in a game or more vintage twang, everything is possible. In a vox or a tween with tremolo and spring reverb western one is full.
    I kept the original pickups for 10 years. Then I decided, under the guidance of a luthier who found resonances my tv exceptional, he put Lollar 52 = same sounds with more that I can not define but which awakens more the potential of this guitar. I am delighted!

    OVERALL OPINION

    Nearly 13 years this guitar I do not loose. And the feeling is mutual ...
    The music is a taste of history and culture. There is no better guitar than another.
    To each his feeling with an instrument.
    I think the 52 Telecaster guitar is what John is pentalon.
    It is a bit basic. No frills here, nor pompous fittings or finishes costly. Just wood that resonates very well.
    I have 4 electric guitars that I use to produce all of the music genre in pop, rock, songs ... Between these guitars often balance my heart but I think that if I keep this one would be it.

    The advantages and disadvantages of the vintage.

    This is "the" Telecaster, while serious guitarist should have one :)

    The tuners are vintage point locking mechanism mounting the old ropes.
    The bridges of origin are three in number, much like a bass.
    This is a bit limited at the setting accuracy.

    The guitar comes with another more modern bridge, six bridges, I hesitate a bit to mount it.
    After all, so many excellent titles were recorded like that.

    The guitar comes in a stunning tweed pouch with orange wig inside, I love it.

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is thick, the frets are thin, it is a particular game that needs to be done, but try to adopt it.

    The polyurethane varnish is a bit sticky at first, but it happens over time.

    From my side, I regularly wipe the handle with a soft cloth, and this aspect has faded.

    SOUNDS

    The bridge pickup is hell, it instantly sounds legendary Keith Richards.

    The neck pickup is perfect in its clear, at once sweet and slamming according to the intention you put into it, the famous twang is there.

    I changed mine in rewiring the modern version because of origin, the neck pickup did not have the correct tone.

    I play on a Cornford Carrera, the sounds are just sublime.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I'm afraid of not being objective good, I love this guitar, it's my number one guitar, I do not never leave.

    USA Fender body with a swamp ash (ash light) with a solid maple neck and maple fingerboard.
    I changed the neck pickup a moment to put a P-90 at Bare Knuckle but finally I gave the original microphone because the P-90 came out too strong compared to the bridge pickup so it's a little unbalanced sound.
    I rewired everything with the classic 60s and a condo Orange Drop. The original wiring has no interest and the book Fender guitar kit with the wiring for the switch to "modern" with the neck and bridge pickups that work together in the middle position.

    The sound is excellent, we are never disappointed. Warning to manage the treble is a Telecaster so it can be quite sharp and lacking a bit of body sometimes.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Excellent tool that I have used for years.
    A must for any rocker who wishes to obtain 60s/70s classic sounds.

    Telecaster made exactly as in 1952, the screw and the windings close!

    UTILIZATION

    The handle shape, polish, everything is super fun to play. Telecaster model has proven itself and we are here to basics!

    SOUNDS

    Much better in sound that teles are made as in the 70s or later. Here's makes no concession. It is neck pickup or bridge pickup, with a sound as sharp as ever in fender. It's hot, round-edged desire ... happiness.

    The best of the best. It is difficult not to love.

    Fender telecaster has a fantastic sound with a very fun dynamic tone that complements the users playing style. These guitars are very versatile and no matter what setting you put them in they are going to sound fantastic. It has a great bright tone primarily because of the bright wood that is used throughout the body of the guitar. These guitars generally feature an ash maple or alder type combination which allows a lot of dynamics with the clean tones throughout the frequencies range. It is a guitar that will cut through the band mix quite well.

    SOUNDS


    The one sound and I think is my favorite with this type of guitar is a nice clean amplifier such as Fender Hot Rod Deluxe or Fender twin reverb amplifier with a good Ibanez tube screamer pedal out front as well as a digital or analog delay pedal. You can get a great driving pop rock sound that will go quite well with pretty much any style of music that you find yourself in. These are great guitars for recording as well so you can get a really dynamic tone in a recording session quite easily. Because these guitars really highlight a player's picking, strumming , and unique style they are a good pallet to paint their musical artistry with.

    OVERALL OPINION


    These guitars you'd find pretty much and a retailer and any guitar shop around the world. You can also find them quite easily online and in many classifieds or eBay auctions. These are very versatile guitars but probably not as versatile as a Fender Stratocaster. If you're looking for that one guitar that will be your end-all, be-all and this probably isn't the guitar for you. It has a great sound but I think it's a little less versatile and maybe Fender Stratocaster or a Gibson Les Paul guitar.

I do not know of any guitar more attractive as the sounds it produces by its appearance and comfort of game it will not be legions on the market in a few years but if you find one go for it.

    UTILIZATION

    Channel simply sublime ... size to really rock. The "Satriani" and others will look elsewhere for what is not a solo tondeuze grass ... Here is rock and that's it (and many dj). This handle fits all types of hand I think.
    A try anyway ...
    Same as the other notice, access to the last box is not ais ... but hey it is not for a.
    She is not heavy and well equilibrated trs ... at this level is the perfect. It is really a lgnde in his hands.
    Not that it sounds empty trs well (we feel the wood rsons ...)

    SOUNDS

    I believe that this sincrement guitar can do anything. But hey it excle in blues / rock forcment
    I play pop / rock and this guitar suits me because (I do not play nearly over my Start).
    For my part I play on Marshall 30me birthday and many hard ca. Of course it would give another side of a fender or brunetti (what I intend to buy in complment).
    Unlike the opinion of bertib (52 Mexico), my 52 possde enornment low (even in my bass player too lol). FYI I play 10-52
    The bridge pickup sounds terribly crunch and even more (see mtal pdalier that if you need me for a GT6). Her pure, warm and acute grip well.
    I use the neck pickup to sound a little clearer. The sound we get Tl .. trs his round, shiny with lots of bass and more heat
    10/10: all the strings sound, the harmonics are pure and it really can do anything. (It's not for nothing that is everywhere)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I play guitar for fifteen years and it is prs than a year I bought OCCAZ.
    What is its strength is that it goes straight to the point, there's no frills, it sounds regardless of the style.
    Those who do not like the vintage spend their paths. Rather direct you to a deluxe tl US (same price range just prs).
    It is true that Fender charge high prices (pay 1500 for a guitar that has not moved in 50 years ... hence the 9) but good when you love it does not count!
    Truly a pleasure to play on standard ... If yes without re c'tait hsiter a second! Try to adopt it.

    Regarding the sound, this guitar is a real pleasure! sound in the bridge position is typical tlcaster ... it is not my position prfre although it sounds. As we shuffled against ds at the two microphones or as one moves to the neck pickup, a large palette of sounds monstrous opens us ...

    SOUNDS

    The sound of this is really tlcaster trs enjoyable, though brilliant but at the same time soft playing effectively on the Tone or positions microphones.

    The sound of the neck pickup is not made to do or because it mtal cash badly pronounced distortion. Currently I play a marshall JCM2000 and Marshall 1960A cabinet.
    For all the sounds rock, jazz or crunch is terrible.

    I plan to change the bridge pickup while asking the maker to keep a good balance in position with two microphones. I'd have the good guitar lends itself to all styles! ;-)

    OVERALL OPINION

    I bought this guitar ax United States two months ago and I fell in love. Yet I am rather aficionados of his Les Paul but tlcaster really sound and spirit part, it's really enjoyable to play diffrent but trs and costs.

    I think the sound is much more interresting tlcaster that stratocaster sound (my opinion).

    The '52 reissue Telecaster from Fender is an example of the venerable solid body electric guitar in the simple yet perfect form that the electric guitar had in its infant stages. The classic "blackguard" Tele has been used by a whole host of players over the years and it's certainly a classic instrument in all respects. There's no modern "twists" here, just an homage to the original Telecaster.

    It features an ash body, a maple neck and fretboard with 21 frets, vintage style tuners, 3 saddle bridge with removable "ashtray" bridge cover, dual single coil pickups, single volume and tone controls, and a three way selector with the original switching setup of neck pickup, bridge pickup, and a…

    The '52 reissue Telecaster from Fender is an example of the venerable solid body electric guitar in the simple yet perfect form that the electric guitar had in its infant stages. The classic "blackguard" Tele has been used by a whole host of players over the years and it's certainly a classic instrument in all respects. There's no modern "twists" here, just an homage to the original Telecaster.

    It features an ash body, a maple neck and fretboard with 21 frets, vintage style tuners, 3 saddle bridge with removable "ashtray" bridge cover, dual single coil pickups, single volume and tone controls, and a three way selector with the original switching setup of neck pickup, bridge pickup, and a specialized setting that is the neck pickup with all the tone rolled off (presumably for a very bassy jazz tone).

    UTILIZATION

    The Tele's design isn't the world's most ergonomic by any stretch, but it's definitely got its perks. The ash bodies on Fenders can vary from guitar to guitar in terms of weight but the '52 Teles I've tried tend to be on the lighter side of the spectrum. The Tele has good upper fret access too for being a single cutaway instrument. The one hindrance with this particular model over the American Standards and American Specials is the glossy neck finish, which tends to make faster playing a bit more of a difficult feat.

    Getting a good tone out of this guitar is quite simple. Barring the rather odd and dated sounding "bassy roll off" tone, the neck pickup has a great classic vibe that works very well for jazz or blues. It has a very open and woody quality that is transparent enough to let the tone of the player really shine through. The bridge pickup can be a little bit bright, but hey, that's what a Tele was designed for - piercing country licks! If the tone's too bright, just roll it back using the tone control or treble control on the amplifier. Personally I like the bright nature of the bridge pickup for country or even rock textures, but it might not be for everyone.

    SOUNDS

    I've tried this guitar through various American and British voiced amplifier rigs. It's definitely more suited to the Fender and Dr Z amps that have that classic Yank bite to them. Clean tones sing with top end brilliance and shimmer that is excellent for all manners of country or R&B/funk music. It's definitely a rawer sounding guitar than the American Standards, and the nature it has through a good tube amp is definitely more along the old school spectrum of tone. The drive tones have a LOT of bite and definition which is great... the guitar does the classic Led Zeppelin type hard rock tones with ease too. It's definitely a more versatile ax than it might let on, so feel free to try any style you want on this guitar - it's very likely to respond well.

    OVERALL OPINION

    All in all I think the Fender '52 Reissue Tele is a great example of the electric that started everything off. It's fairly close to the original model, plays well and has a wealth of sounds available. At about $1,600 new it's a fairly good value for money I would say. The vintage features such as the saddles or radius might be a turn off to players who are more accustomed to modern features but if you're a vintage tone hound and want a great reissue of the classic "blackguard," look no further!

    UTILIZATION

    I play the guitar for almost 8 years and my one and only one shovel was Washburn X-50.

    To put the beast in speed: 24 frets thin neck, a highway, two Seymour Duncan humbuckers micro ... In short, a very muscular skyscraper! Being my first guitar, I had chosen my influences at the time, namely, very metal! For 4 years I play alternative rock in a formation (early pop and rock now), it held the road but next reference in the style she wanted over the road!

    Made in the United States in 2005, three bridge decks, handle 21 frets, 3-position selector (change from the previous owner), 2 knobs, ...

    UTILIZATION

    I play the guitar for almost 8 years and my one and only one shovel was Washburn X-50.

    To put the beast in speed: 24 frets thin neck, a highway, two Seymour Duncan humbuckers micro ... In short, a very muscular skyscraper! Being my first guitar, I had chosen my influences at the time, namely, very metal! For 4 years I play alternative rock in a formation (early pop and rock now), it held the road but next reference in the style she wanted over the road!

    After testing a number of guitars in stores and at friends (Fender Start, Tele, Jazzmaster-Jaguar ..., LP & Gibson SG), after scouring the forums and my choice is to carry on the Telecaster !

    First because the model I like a lot! TV, either we like or not like it! Me personal, I do not like the Start of a visual point of view, but I love the Tele!

    My choice was to focus first on a US Standard. Then, having found an ad on a site selling during this 52 Vintage at a very interesting (ie 1'075 €), I rush!
    The test with friends in a pro guitarist with a fine collection of guitar and especially for Fender and under his advice, I take the plunge!

    So first take your hands enough ... "Violent" take a very thin neck and thin to the baseball bat used to handle 52, it was a sport!

    But there in no comparison, the total feet to play on an instrument like that! The high-end and the money does not always mean good stuff here but not there to photograph, it's worth the money!

    SOUNDS

    I play with a VOX AC30 and my pedalboard consists of a OD9 Maxon, MXR '78 Custom & Dynacomp Badass Disto, EHX Big Muff and Tc Elec Nova Repeater.

    So fairly standard config: 1 overdrive, a distortion, a fuzz, a compressor, a delay of + the VOX switch (reverb + tremolo).

    I had to start by changing all my settings: switch between guitar metal / heavy rock to the Telecaster is a giant step!

    10 to 15 minutes after setting I find his "huge"!
    It's much more subtle, it sounds more "real", with a lot of depth, the 100% compliance attacks, ...
    It's a sound that can go from very sharp to something thicker and by operating a pedal or a knob / switch is going to crystal clear sound and very heavy!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a short time but will step photos, please when a guitar is already 50% of winning but then in hand, when one feels a little something special is that the bonus!

    I do not regret at all! I still love my old guitar as I made my first weapons with a lot of memories, but spend on an instrument "pro", it's just amazing!

    Level quality / price ratio, I think that's clear, 1'075 € used, if it was not me she was going very fast in someone else. Bon y OCCAZ OCCAZ and here I am falling on the guy mega detailed, very correct and really pro! Beware of copies and other scams!

    The word has already been passed down: a legend!

    UTILIZATION

    Channel super easy to play as on most Fender.
    Ideal form for my taste. Mechanical reliability that take the agreement.

    SOUNDS

    The sound is sublime as in pickup neck pickup. The fact that no combination of neck pickup and bridge is a good thing because I hate the sound of mic positions through.
    On this guitar lacks nothing and nothing is too much ... We have not done better since.
    What a stroke of genius Leo Fender to have created this guitar in 1949!
    58 years later it is still the best in my opinion.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 3 years.
    When I discovered I knew it was "Ze" ... Above all …

    When I discovered I knew it was "Ze" ... Above all guitar than I would look over the other.
    I used a Gibson SG standard, a strat US, which étaitent both excellent, but I never had that much fun playing on the TV 52.

    - What type of race?
    that of tl .... there's nothing better, really, nothing.
    I put 9 because of the history of the bridge which for me today is back to normal.

    UTILIZATION

    - The handle is it enjoyable?
    - Access in acute (dernires freight) is it easy?
    - Ergonomics is it good (in terms of shape, weight ...)?
    - Gets it easy to sound good? ...
    I rponds block, there is nothing better

    SOUNDS

    I do not want another.
    I play on peavey, trs little effect, let's say a touch of distortion to make me believe the sound, but sometimes I connect direct to the amp with its clear (to not forgive).
    otherwise, and often with double ambucking gibson, well rounded, velvet.
    not possible to dtest, Roy Buchanan Listen and you will hear what we can come out of this guitar ...

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 30 years (you read that right).
    never changed the frets, just a little polish in the luthier sometimes.
    I play it almost every day, I paid attention as the apple of my eye, I do not prt and even the fact of leaving the home maker, has me anxious.
    I have tried many, and yes I would like to have bcp guitar, but need money.
    Report qualitprix. in retrospect, it did not cost much per year of practice ...
    but when I bought 77, I sold the stuff so I could pay it and the gear, there were guitars I have good guards when I think in retrospect.
    quality price ratio bin adpend also money that a. ..
    Ah, I will not regret it, it's the best guitar in the world of music I love.
