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.

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.


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.
