The Mexican has nothing to be ashamed to face "Made in America".
Maple neck and head fat Start, 2 humbuckers, Les Paul settings, what more?


Its handle C is just the most pleasant I know, I got adjusted immediately. Fingers glide over the maple like butter!
The ergonomics are very good and the body Telecaster reworked makes the game up very nice. In addition, the weight of the guitar is well distributed.
Access to treble is good but not exceptional, but that's not what you look for when buying a guitar like this, we forgive Satriani.

For cons, I had the displeasure to find that my rope acute middle of the handle out slightly, especially when performing bends on it. I discovered that the slot of the 6th string in the Nut was a big difference whatsoever in relation to whether or edge of the handle (the Tequila had to run freely on that day in the factory Fender Mexican ). However, installing a new nut is not expensive and I am the only user to complain of this defect.


Then there is a small wonder!
Jazz, blues, brit-pop, rock, hard and even the heavy, his sound palette is broad, it is of rare versatility.
Playing with the neck pickups, neck + bridge or bridge, you get crystal clear sound is faithful to the Telecaster is a warm sound on the edge of Gibson's (I recall in passing that Fender had created this guitar to compete with Gibson pickups on the market doubles).
I play Franz Ferdinand, the Kaiser Chiefs and is wonderful in the British register. It also sounds nice for classic rock like the Stones (Bridge position for the foil) or as Lynyrd Skynyrd (neck position or neck + bridge to taste for sounds round).
It also sounds surprisingly well by playing ACDC and even Maiden! The magic of humbuckers works brilliantly!
I like his clear, foil bridge, perfect paired with a Fender Hot Rod, but also its clear, round neck, plans for jazz or bluesy.
Side crunch and distortion, it collects all that it is subjected, by moving closer (relatively speaking) of the heavy to the Maiden Bridge and a round at the Black Keys in neck.
Plugged into a Fender, Marshall or a Blackstar, the guitar is great.


I use this guitar for a year and a half after trying an American Telecaster, which lacked punch for my taste and a Gibson SG, which lacked precision in the treble. I was amazed from the first notes as she corrected the defects of these two models. Its versatility is very impressive while keeping a nice character.
I really like everything about this guitar, it is beautiful, not common, and sounds wonderful.
The price / quality ratio is exceptional and I would definitely do it again this election for a second!
