« Fender Telecaster (Mexican) »Published on 10/26/03 at 15:00
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???
I gotta tell you, shock is a mild expression for my
impression of that little sunburst beauty.
The feel was excellent, and the sound was just what I expected a
tele to sound like... I bought it.
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
Rates a 5!
