MGR/Aaron's review"Fender 50's Telecaster"

Fender Classic '50s Telecaster
I recently purchased this guitar at a local music store it was origionaly priced at 649 but I talked them down to 540.

The thing i like most about this guitar (and everyone should like most about the guitar they buy) is the tone I get. I have a Stratocaster and the tone from the Telecaster is entirely different. You can play any chords and they will sound excelent not like on strats ware it can sound a little to cluttered, if that makes sense. I also like the vintage styling of the guitar, and the action on it is fast. And thats the way I like it.

This is just what I like about the instrument but I own it so im probly parcial to it.

The only thing I don't like about the guitar is that the sadles on the bridge don't have groves for the strings to sit in. Thus making bends harder then usual. And playing on .12s I need all the help i can get if you know what i mean.

Im not sure how to answer this. its a fender from mexico so the production process isn't that bad, nothing like an americian tho. No visible flaws or anything.

This guitar is an amazing thing to play. You hardly have to play it seems to almost play itself. It fits me like a dream and looks good too. It gives that clasic muddy waters or merle haggard tone.

Fender Classic '50s Telecaster
already said elsewhere

UTILIZATION

it's a telecaster so we like it or not. Personally I love this type of handle.

SOUNDS

Seen other reviews that say the sound of the microphones is not top. Well, I'm not too agree. Already on to see what our friends plug their guitars. If it's on a roland cube or transistors thing they can do what they want it never ring. Character mine is plugged into a Fender Hot Rod and frankly it's a good level, both on the neck pickup that bridge. I'm not a fan of distorted sounds so I can not really judge what type of use.

OVERALL OPINION

the telecaster I have had in a classic vibe which I regretted. Except that Japanese and Korean Squiers. The latter to 320 € I did not hesitate even as the state was good and it was dated 2007, therefore, already a little bottle. Only big flaw the bridges of the bridge that are really crap. Replaced with brass saddles.

Fender Classic '50s Telecaster
Version mexico then, bought new in 2002 for € 800. It is white (white blonde they say). This is a reissue of the 50's as the name indicates the color and slightly translucent and deep reveals the wood grain filigree. It is beautiful and enhances the mood Holy buddy, what 50s. Channel crude form of time (flatter than the current TV), two simple microphones, a volume, one tone and a three position selector. no vibrato strings through the body and are accorchées back. Quality of the finish very good.
I do not see why j'mets 8 to let the US more likely :-)

UTILIZATION

The handle is very nice, large flat, very easy to wander nothing n'accorche the 18th to the first box. The access to the latest boxes is harder because the handle screw fixation gene hand (it's a TV in any case not a shredder guitar ...) or to 9 / 10

SOUNDS

For pop, vintage rock blues is great and a fender amp it sounds a hell or 10/10 (on a marshall bof but I do not like the sound marshall matter of taste)

A round very bright and clear with the bridge pickup. The neck pickup gives a warm / smooth (roico what) medium / bass blues perfect for my taste and for solos like David Gilmour. The sustain is very good at his clear, beautiful arpeggios and all the strings ring. there is not much bass on this guitar.

If we're talking, of course saturation is limited because the microphones are simple. Chuck Berry sound up or Gilmour Police perfect sound Satriani or Metallica forget (or buy a pedal?)

OVERALL OPINION

I play the guitar for almost 15 years, this is my second guitar. I also have a Rickenbacker. I bought this guitar because it is very complementary of Ricken (have you ever tried a bend on a Ricken ... hello string tension). I use it for solos and arpeggios for sounds brilliant (like police) or low-saturated medium and hot (such Pink Floyd). If I had to buy it back, I'll do it with eyes closed .. and then it's so much more beautiful and less banal than a Start (matter of taste but life is nothing else ...)

Mazesmood's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Fender Classic '50s Telecaster
So as he said prcdemment t I will not repeat myself too much, except that I changed the pickups, I put up two humbuckers in simple format

UTILIZATION

The neck is super enjoyable, the very first time that I had in hand, has acted as if we knew it was dj trs natural.
The grip is correct but it is a bit heavy all the same.

SOUNDS

This is the perfect guitar for my style even if I opt for a change of pickups. I play blues and rock.
I play with is a ToneLab amp will be my fallen angel ashdown

OVERALL OPINION

It'll be a year since I have and it's always a rgal as the Avoi in my hands.
The default is small mics, I have often said, but the I found the right marriage
