This Telecaster was a terrible passion, no less than five of my knowledge have also!

    And it is this passion that I would come dposer a BMOL: Fender possde a strong marketing team to sell to the "custom shop" Mexican guitars unworthy of the name as their heads displayed.

    So yes, the Baja's beautiful, color, maple key, the bridge 3 brass saddles like the old days, it has everything a great ... but was still expensive for what it is.

    I blame him (less than the 5 best essays in addition to the mine are also the result of an unfortunate accident ...)

    Approximate _CONTRACT MANUFACTURING: we see the dboucher dfonce for micro cot easel easel precisely
    _frettage typical production Fender Mexico: fret not at the same level, difficult to hold a sustain at a bend, he finds himself very quickly smothered by too high fret. And what about the extrmit cuts frets grinder with too much angle towards the key ... Nothing new for 650 on average, they are silent and goes his way.
    _The Micros "custom shop" ...: stews. It will explain how noticeable sound difference from those of the spare standard telecaster mexico ...
    _the violin: not one of the one I tried (mine included) only offered a sound branch dgueulasse but tasteless, depth is plaplat. Let him bnfice of the doubt with the years that can possibly make it evolve, personally I doubt if the wood is not good base, it does not improve with time ...dropoff window

    The rest? she has the mouth unquestionably but remains a Mexican, it's for me unworthy of Fender cot finishing ...

    Choose a guitar leaves the quality of wood / electro not cavorting, no photo, the Squier Classic Vibe wins hands down. Obviously Fender Japanese production is substantially higher, but prices too. Though.

    And if you find this hard on telecaster everybody loves me (me too after dozens of upgrades and planimtrie uros, after, after only one has a mean guitar range in the hands - so it falls to me to new prices, while I had a spcial price ...), make a sound real comparative / finish with one that still has the "sub-brand."

    I heard there is little the buyer (seller even thundered in him ...) of a Precision Bass Mex said in a store "any fawn Mexican are the same as the USA, Fender USA sends mexico woods and its specifications, and as it is a neighboring country Fender US Contrle maintain continuous production and is seen, it is much better than the m *** Asian art. "
    In voil one that fantsme lot and certainly not tried much other than Fender Mexico ...

    Fender mexico is bogus for the price, but then a point ... Oh yes. Epiphone Les Paul and it is not nearly the same thing: a trade policy coronation ...

    When I have a new guitar I have control maximum points so as not to be disappointed with the result so I partially disassembled to take a look under the hood and possibly made some alterations if necessary. The lifts are the taff but we'll see in the long term. When the handle is in its very beautiful.
    The electronics against seems a little chip that's a bit crap.

    Overall this is good because the only thing that is possibly fishing electronics and this is what is the easiest (and cheapest) to changer.c is just a visual impression because I was not identify any suspicious sound (crack) use so for now everything is correct we are in a good copy telecaster us.

    UTILIZATION

    the handle is really excellent. This soft V profile has surprised me comfort because I thought (in twisted) this profile going to be awkward because of its size and that it is contrary forme.Au me better than C different from my other guitars and so on that's a really good surprise. Like what nothing is worth trying.
    The profile of the body is not so bad as you might think (compared to the stratosphere).
    I think access to very decent treble.
    the acoustic sound is really not bad. the sound is brilliant even when the strings start to vibrate well ternir.La guitar handy sustain is not ridiculous at all despite a system of bridges that I find archaic.

    SOUNDS

    His side I'm glad this is not the sound of an authentic telecaster 52 ... but at the same time is not what I think of buying when I took this baja. I wanted a typed his telecaster and that's it.
    All positions are nice, however, the S1 is not my cup of tea. It is not really useful, the four basic positions are more than enough for me.
    On my amp shop type fender is great that "twang" well and when I push the overdrive is really nice.

    OVERALL OPINION

    So initially I wanted a telecaster but it was not essential to me so I expected to be pretty hard to judge its qualities and defects. And in the end I have to admit it is really well done, it is very playable and it sounds bien.et bonus it was not too bad set of origin. I patched the 1/4 turn of the screw trusraod and retouched a chouillat the bridges.

    The only downside in my opinion is the electronics. s1 is not useful and is a bit of background noise (buzz) but hey it fits well in mind. I will change all that may be in the future for something more simple and classic.

    I think it is worth its price, neither more nor less. I do not think this is the deal of the century but not a scam.

    I still allows a small note, there may be large differences of a model to another (live in mass production :-/) to you to be vigilant.

    Handle very special round, with a very slight V and a touch a little narrower than average (just over 41mm at nut). The pickups are supposed to be custom shop, at that price, it would be amazing. 4 position selector switch S + a-1. All combinations may not be interesting depending on the amp. And whatever the amp to the vintage hi-gain, one of the positions you will always get away. 3 vintage bridge saddles, not easy for the correctness, but essential to the sound.

    Mechanics do their job, I still up-grader with schaller and fire & stone (yes, I like it so much that I bought two!). Unlike many publicity photos, varnish body is not nearly as translucent, one can distinguish the grain......

And whatever the amp to the vintage hi-gain, one of the positions you will always get away. 3 vintage bridge saddles, not easy for the correctness, but essential to the sound.

    Mechanics do their job, I still up-grader with schaller and fire & stone (yes, I like it so much that I bought two!). Unlike many publicity photos, varnish body is not nearly as translucent, one can distinguish the grain slightly, but it will be difficult to identify the number of pieces of ash body (it is 600 balls, I'm not done no illusions). Sensations are not as finishing a guitar top 1200/1500 euros, but frankly, I have nothing wrong with my Blonde provided. And since you mention: this is the first Tele Blonde accessible to (almost) all, much less expensive than ri52. And look blonde, even if you do not like the look tele, we must recognize that it has the mouth!

    UTILIZATION

    So ... the handle will not please everyone, far from it. That said, those who are moving towards Telecaster expect to have a grip vintage, or at least enough away from the spirit Ibanez. However, this small vee not please everyone. Specificity: 41 mm at the nut, against 42/43 in other models of trade, including Fender. There are only offering this Music Man. This gives grip in mind baseball bat sought by Leo.

    4 position selector déroutera regulars, but for others, no worries. Only the s-1 switch (phase inversion) leave doubtful. It only makes sense with some very high-gain amps. Access to acute is far from what it does best, but this is the price to pay on a Tele. I noticed a problem systematically knob (with the switch for that matter), which moves in the game, and is therefore not always possible. It will tighten a bit.

    For sound, the Telecaster was LE from the grip, even unplugged it twang ...

    SOUNDS

    This guitar is what you can expect better from a Telecaster, with vintage sound but hot-lapped rather supercharged. For rock, it is. But if you type in blues rock, country, well then, it becomes downright nasty! When I fell for this guitar, I was in full freak Brad Paisley (album "Play") and Hellecasters, and this model was what stuck to my best expectations, these sounds rock / blues modern tinged twang to the former. Some U.S. models could perhaps do better? I have not found too biting RI52 (52 by the hotrod against), but it corresponded more to my criteria rather sharp comfort. And then it stuck to my budget.

    It has beautiful sound with excellent microphones provided by desperadoes in fender. Change microphone is not mandatory. I tried the Kinman set, and I dropped, Lekit home made better. I turned to a kit Engine Pickups (handmade Valenciennes Dussenne by Jerome, who also produces micro Aymeric Silvert signature) with a VT0 ... the even better: more accurate, balanced, not aggressive ... to tell you, I play micro bridge solo in a Marshall JCM800 with the distortion on edge ... try it with another Telecaster and you will leave your skin! There, he moves into the mix almost like a humbucker, but 100% single coil sounding. The Broadcaster's vintage ... Even harmonics out with ease. I highly recommend it, especially the micro bridge.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Basically, this interested me for his Tele handle unusual and I envisioned a bunch of upgrades. 2 weeks répéts and a concert later ... I am going to seek a second (more with a clearance, so for a lower price), history of Baja still retain more or less "stock".
    I've always loved the mouths of Telecasters, never found one that suited me so far. So much so, that I got a guitar one day, who looked (vaguely) a Butterscotch Blonde. In this case a Music Man Axis Sport (first model with pickguard). Since then I have had 5 other of the same model (and kept it from 2), a Music Man EVH, and makes a model maker on this basis. I had a lot of Strat (Fender, Schecter, Music Man Luke II, Blade), a PRS, of Gibson (Les Paul Standard, Gary Moore Signature - the real one, not the BFG) Bacchus, and often of old vintage loan quality (Gibson L Series Strat). But one day I declared that I do not ever buy a guitar over 1,500 euros (the price of my Music Man 10 years ago), saying they had a guitar pro at this rate without fear of do a scratch lowering its value. And there was amazing value for money (to wonder if the guys at Fender did not become crazy).

    In this case, the first concert my first Baja, my number one spent 90% of his gig on stand ... I really completely cracked on this guitar, its sound, its comfort, its mouth ... It did not become my number one, but in my main group, it is an essential part of his soul and even some songs whose riffs twanguy out of them.

    I know it is in the absolute face a vintage or custom shop, but for the price amazing, I'll put a note overall opinion I have put only once (for my number one, of course), ie 10/10. Whatever she feels rather than tapas Sake or hamburgers. It sounds like I wanted, the rest is conjecture. I did upgrade the pickups, but frankly, I could do without! Valeure a safe, it will remain as a reference.

    If you are looking for a Tele sounds noisy, grunge or whatnot, I'm not sure whether it is the best choice. If you are looking Telecaster that sounds like Telecasters specialists of this legendary scratch, then this is the best value for money that is unbeatable. This is the second time (only) that I stick a 10/10 to scratching. You hate it or you love literally. For me, it is seen!

    I will not detail everything about this model already very well commented below and I agree with almost everything that has been said ... as for me I would add some interesting elements and I speak as an expert.
    Stories about the varnish running down the frets are possible, but then it is not luck ... ditto for misalignment of strings ... But I have no problem.
    Certainly the very thick paint could hide a few noble wood .. but it remains hypothetical and it's still ash, believe me it sounds good as ash, clarity and resonance of the body.
    The type of microphones mounted is excellent ..
    the plastic nut is nil string "tilt" in the turns of mechanics.
    21 frets, he'll miss a shame ........

    the plastic nut is nil string "tilt" in the turns of mechanics.
    21 frets, he'll miss a shame .. but we will not cry ..

    UTILIZATION

    The handle is nice and a little thinner than a les paul gibson.L access to acute is not thought of as futuristic, strings of 1.4 mm 12th fret in case ie very low level of its action , and no borders. Super ...
    A significant problem is the good performance of the agreement after pulling your strings .. it does not matter since you have to replace the nut with a Tusq more slippery (same for bridges)
    3 Pontets type "barrel" unhelpful to fine-tune the intonation.

    SOUNDS

    The baja has a wide range of sounds and by its selector button S1 there are 7 different voices.
    Fender, the S1 button has the same function on a stratocaster for example it may simply puts a microphone into a microphone type double at the sound color ... Here on the S1 provides telecaster sound colors a little nasal, (as if a wha wha pedal was engaged to set path or if you hear a guitar on the phone). It's cute inspiring and keeps a very grain oldies ..
    This guitar sounds very 50 and she has a real authenticity.
    Aggressiveness heat gently, for the funk, blues rock .. jazz .. we find happiness.

    Regarding the insulation, it is true that stray a little but it is bearable; as a gentleman can always lower the volume, the knob is also used to it.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I may be the lucky fender in Mexico, but I must admit it sounds very well and this baja.
    A guitar is a meeting, it is true, but we must also know that some of the same series guitar can sound more or less ..
    I have a U.S. deluxe, but this is well worth a baja American is sur.Il just need to pass the course psychological "Made in Mexico ..", it is a vast history linked to Mexican workers do not realize mondialisation.les not fender pasteboard, far away. The classic player series is one of the best Mexican production. So far, I've read somewhere that the quality of fender baja deteriorated after 2007.

    "Big" handle, I love playing with sleeves of this type.

    UTILIZATION

    Handle very nice, great shape reminds of the old school telecaster blues or Rock Creedence Clearwater Revival.
    Relatively easy access to acute, with a sound and accurate disticnt :)

    SOUNDS

    I use both in Blues Rock (Slide bottleneck)
    Its 6 Positions of microphones offered him a high range of sounds
    I play with a Fender Blues Deluxe and a Fender Twin Reverb, as saying that it's magic ...

    The Amercian special grows much more extreme level position in microphones (Serious too serious to my taste, too much treble treble)
    Excellent value for money! For 630 euros, you ride Fender with all the guarantees that come with it!
    I love everything about this guitar!

  • Fender Fender Telecaster Mexican

    Fender Classic Player Baja TelecasterPublié le 11/03/03 à 15:00
    Bought this a Hesse Music in Johnson City, NY about 8 years ago. With a small 15 watt amp it was about $400.00.

    Love the sound of a tele, the feel of the neck is good, not top heavey. Easy to play with the small narrow neck.

    On the original there was a staic sound coming through the pick gaurd and was very annoying. After taking it to many shops no one could produce the sound but me. I sheilded the pick gaurd and even rplaced the old one with a celenoid pick gaurd with sheilding. Then after talking to an einginer at the TV station I worked at said to ground the bridge pickup. Now it really cooks except for the noise in the selector switch. With that I use some tuner cleaner evry once......

    Vary solid body with the old paint because it was painted in Mexico. You can't use that kind of paint in the USA so it has a nice blue matalic paint job. I replaced the original pick gaurd, added copper sheilding, and grounded the bridge pickup. This should have been done at the factory.

    Bottomline is that if you want a Tele don't just get a Fender look around. There are many good guitars around that look like a Tele but are finished guitars from a factory and not the unfinished guitar I bought from Fender at a shop.

  • Fender Telecaster (Mexican)

    Fender Classic Player Baja TelecasterPublié le 10/26/03 à 15:00
    I went to a local store to BUY the new 52
    re-issue tele. I've owned a few "Vintage"
    Strats and Telecasters, and I know how they
    sound and feel. Beter still, I know how they're
    NOT supposed to feel!

    Well, I played the 52 for a bit, and while waiting
    for the salesman to take it and put it back in a secure
    spot I set it into a stand that had previously been occupied
    by a $230 USED Mexican Tele.

    Hey, who could resist a head to head, side by side comparison???

    Not me!

    I gotta tell you, shock is a mild expression for my
    impression of that little sunburst beauty.

    The salesman wasn't the least bit surprised...








    Fit, finish, feel and sound... all excellent.


    Not a durn thing... Well, I'll be a bit ashamed
    at what I paid for it... $200 plus tax.

    Outstanding, as good as any Fender I've owned,
    and better than some.




    Don't hesitate a second to buy one if you're on
    a budget. Even if you're NOT on a budget,
    they make sense... that is unless you have a problem
    with NAFTA :-)

    Rates a 5!

    UTILIZATION

    This is a nice Tele! My favorite guitar that Fender ever introduced is the Telecaster, and a good Tele is one to hold on to. I read somewhere a quote from an ex-Fender employee that worked with the company in the very early years. The quote said something like "We all knew Leo's first design was his best, but nobody had the heart to tell him." I agree with this statement. The Telecaster is one of the simplest, yet most solid guitars around, offering rock-solid tuning stability, crystal clarity, and excellent playability. This Baja Classic Player Tele is no exception. It offers everything that a great Tele should have...

    SOUNDS

    ...however, Fender did one thing I'm not a fan of on this guitar. They included the S-1 switching system, which allows 6 different sounds total. Usually, I am all about that kind of variety, but these extra sounds aren't really that different from the originals. I like the original 3 tones of a Tele better than the additional tones here, to be honest. In trying out this guitar, I checked out all of the settings, and I never went back to the newer S-1 sounds. I feel like it's a waste of electronics, and just overly complicates the guitar. It's by no means a space-age guitar, but if one had to make a simple soldering adjustment, that extra switch could throw them off, and I don't think the quality of the extra sounds justify adding more circuitry that could potentially fail.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall, this guitar is a winner. But the S-1 switching is unnecessary bulk that just raises the price of the guitar. I'd rather pay $50-100 less for the same guitar minus the S-1. It really is a good axe, it just doesn't need this fancy switching. It's a Tele!

    Everything has been said here, so I pass.

    UTILIZATION

    Very resonant vacuum surprisingly well! It's really good slap.
    The handle is also very nice, it's really big but less than my Les Paul '58 Reissue.
    Its profile is very nice, it seems that it is a soft V, but I do not like that I think we would say V over a large C or a D.
    It's been a little Gibson, what, I like it!
    The radius of 9.5 "is really top, I do not like a radius more pronounced.
    The bends going well.

    The finish is correct, as the adjustment. The junction body / neck is well made.
    The mechanics do the job, but we feel that it is not of great quality.
    The pickguard is too thick, ugly and seen up close.

    The switch S1 is a bit shoddy.

    The system S1 cons, I am puzzled, as the 4-position switch. For my use, I do not see the interest.
    It changes a little, and it changes it into less, so why bother?
    It is not impossible that I should just jump and replace it with a 3-position selector knobs and two standard 250k.

    SOUNDS

    The neck pickup is very good, it is not common on the Telecaster.

    The micro bridge, "CS Broadcaster", however I was surprised. Middy enough, it is closer to a P90 (less powerful) than a conventional micro Telecaster. The famous sound of ice pick Telecaster held by some, well, this microphone is completely free.
    It is located on the upper midrange, which is that it produces a nice crunch KERRRRANG. However, I was looking for a sound to Steve Cropper, I have a bit of my hunger, I miss some slamming.
    This is not the guitar that is in question because in vacuum, this is really slamming.

    In fact, we feel that this guitar was designed rather to play in crunch sounds that sounds clean. For stonesiens riffs, it sends severe!
    Even for sounds at the ACDC with Marshall type sound, it does.

    But it is less in the world of the Telecaster country / twangy / Chick'n picking, with this choice of microphones.

    OVERALL OPINION

    Overall: fans of the Stones and Black Crowes and even the Reverend Gibbons, this guitar is for you!
    Fans of Danny Gatton and Albert Lee, it may need to turn to something else, or change the micro bridge.

    It's a good guitar, solid, not exceptional (I compare with my Suhr Classic S and it is not the same world, but the same price either) but that really does the job.

    Price / quality ratio: excellent. In time, it becomes downright theft.

    It's a Fender Mexican (up Submitted plutt has made me fly!) Is the classic SERIES player, whose finish is excellent: good rglage, coupling sleeve and perfect body , stick a pice covered with a beautiful and comfortable varnish, visible body made up of little pice (translucent lacquer of my vintage blonde can be seen).

    The microphone configuration which I have not really been around is as follows, two custom shop (it's not marketing, there are REALLY on the REFERENCE MODELS custom shop 2000 / Euro 3000 is an asset of the Baja):

    4-Position Blade Switch and 2-Position Push / Push S-1:
    S-1 Switch Up:
    Position 1. Bridge Pickup
    Position 2. Bridge and Neck Pickups (In Parallel)......

    4-Position Blade Switch and 2-Position Push / Push S-1:
    S-1 Switch Up:
    Position 1. Bridge Pickup
    Position 2. Bridge and Neck Pickups (In Parallel)
    Position 3. Neck Pickup (Standard Tele)
    Position 4. Neck and Bridge Pickups (In Series) (Fatter Tone Than Position 2. And More Output Than Position 1., 2., Or 3.)
    S-1 Switch Down:
    Position 1. Bridge Pickup
    Position 2. Bridge and Neck Pickups (In Parallel)-Out of Phase
    Position 3. Neck Pickup (Standard Tele)
    Position 4. Neck and Bridge Pickups (In Series) Out of Phase

    Drout is a bit to end up with an electronic as flexible on a tele (8 sounds!). They are exploitable and e in the spirit Fender.

    The handle has a V-shaped shallow enough I find it perfect, as comfortable as on my Start Plus Deluxe.
    The bridge is one of the original rplique (50/60 's), I have a priori on the DJ because I had two American Series with the reliable bridge bridges indpendant 6. For now I have not noticed any default (it is perfectly rgl.

    Finally, mcaniques are vintage style, the same as for chavalet if I will make a move too small change Schaller / Fender, but for now I am surprised enjoyable.

    UTILIZATION

    Channel enjoyable trs, trs Fender I am, so no surprise that ct l. Access in acute is enough for me, I am more gimmick that riff and solo ...

    The guitar is trslgre, wood is certainly not dense trs is not a Les Paul any fawn, but all the same thundering. It is more than lgre American Series, I will not be tonn the economy will be made this ct l. At the same time, when you empty the cheek, it sounds really good dj.

    EDIT. NOTICE + 10 days: in fact it was a normal weight while, it seemed trslgre, more than my Start, but it is not so strong that eventually. APRS prcise observation, I see no assemblage of wood, not possible to know if there are 1.2 or 3 pices of wood. In any case the beautiful veining is regretting the absence of a sunburst finish on the MODEL.

    Ergonomics? Well, it's not a tele a stratum, then for small containers is less comfortable ...
    Do you get a good sound easy? Well, although we easily obtain a good sound package! It is the strength of this guitar, the sound palette is amazing, it's a real little muse Fender!

    SOUNDS

    The sounds are trs INTERESTED, there are two large families of sounds: sounds typical standard tele neck / center / ct an easel and the other sounds atypical Fender trs on a Tele, the type pais velvety lace sensor (clapton), sounds creuss the Mark Knopfler, sound and dry Troit the Robert Cray, and then finally sounds in the vein of my keith be "hard riff" trs east vintage Tele.

    Excellent crunch on my Fender Blues Junior, in comparison with the American Series pickups, it is suprieur, there are many teeth, a slap and crunch. Trs good output level, a pure delight. A vintage 30 2x12 JCM 2000, it is always perfect, though some positions seek trs channel 3 in distortion. In clear and sounds by pushing the reverb of the Fender with the arpges Mogwai is full, trs Dfine with a grain structure (many characters).

    Actually, I think they are the best pickups I've ever had on a Fender!

    EDIT. NOTICE + 15 days: the pickups are still patants! But I must return partiellemnt on what I said, APRS comparison, I note that the output gain is less than lev modern microphones. APRS INVESTIGATION, I confirem these microphones is to approach the conus t CHARACTERISTICS 52 Tele pickups. That's why they gain less strong than the standard US microphones, however, they have much more grain and nuances.

    This is the highlight of this guitar, it sounds to the Manir MODELS "ags", once the use of volume and tonal oprante trs, unlike modern productions (like my Start Plus) that sound "while the bottom."

    With the Blues Junior, I push the gain to half of the sound is clear overdrive with just the game of pots of Baja and the attack on mdiator. This is my guitar Premire of this type, and I must say it is beautiful!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for three months.

    What I like most: the look, the microphones, the trs lctronique soft touch on the price (585 euros in tho ...).

    What I like least: the made in mexico (ie psychological), the strings are original trs "standard".

    I had two American Series in the past (note: never sell a good guitar), I test the Koa that I find such a good trs trs diffrent, Highway 2 The Mexican standard is so-so, blah ...

    The ratio quality price is excellent.

    It perfectly complte set my guitar and my Blues Junior.

    NOTICE AFTER MORE THAN A MONTH

    Well, aprsrglage, change the bridge saddles for a 6 American Series, and change strings Ernie Ball 10/46, it is perfect. This is by far the best guitar I had (US Fender Start std, more deluxe, Fender Tele US std, mustang). It allows a lot of things with a good amp lamps, all done mdiator and pots, it's a real instrument.

    Ah yes, little rctification: 8 positions, but six sounds (and sacred sounds)
