« Fender Fender Telecaster Mexican »

Published on 11/03/03 at 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 in a while and that works for me.

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.
