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
So this makes Tele Has the land of cactus, it has 21 frets (that's enough!), The handle is in C, but I have not taken so long to tame, contrary to other opinions. However, I play primarily on Les Paul. Fender Vintage Tele Bridge by.
Its main quality is his violin, which will allow you to evolve the way you want. Many things can be exchange of a skyscraper, but not the violin. It's like putting an engine in a 2CV Ferral, a will not rev quickly, because the chassis is not deudeuche to accommodate such an engine (wow comparison !...).
Micros original trs blah is what I had failed to tip the ct of Highway plutt: they taient trs draft ds the saturation point the tip of his nose, and the output level of silent way too low.

UTILIZATION

Channel C. Guitar heavier than my old Squier Start, but less than my Les Paul. Access in acute pain is more than the ais Les Paul, but it's not my style, I will not cheese.
So I say great for my neck, because it does a Matre RULES (!): Radius corrected string around the right height, and I swear it's become a highway overnight. No, not an Ibanez guitar shredder or other well-sr, but I do want to hear "you have to tame the handle of a Tele is a long time".
I upgrade with 2 Seymour Duncan STL-2 and STR-2: micro-trs mind Tele twang, but with a large output level, a balance and not too sharp turns to the screaming like the original pickups. I am one of those who find the output level too low gnralement on a Tele.
I use my broad Tele: blues improvisation cushy, a little Clapton, Hendrix, and until the M-to-distortion pedals with a lamp (Blackstar HT Dual).

SOUNDS

As I've dj said, I am mostly player Les Paul (Slash).
But I could not do without my TV on the dserte ... The STR-2 micro SD is a marvel for a few rhythmic blues, and then you go on APRS improvisation on the bridge pickup STL-2 ... I just wanted to test the microphones and NLT-1 TRPA-1 SD from home also, for ct fuller and Alnico, but I feared their average output level too ... and to play more "round", I dj my Les Paul.
I play on a Marshall amp DFx transistor 50, which will be replaced by an ending for Blackstar HT-5 lamp (phew!). I actually test it with my Tele rcemment, and sound, even if it is not typical Fender, will remain a good compromise between my LP and this Tele (but we don ' is not to make the review of the Blackstar HT-5!).
In short, to the sound, see what I say dj on micro SD. Only problem: this requires a change in scratching microphone. But the good side of the mdaille is to say that it is worth it, our answer Submitted violin making.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for 6 months. Report qualitprix reasonable, but it is changing the pickups, it seems inevitable I got (was only my opinion).
I do it again this choice without hsiter ... APRS be compared with a Highway One this time, or at least an equivalent team of violin Tele pickups Texas.

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
