Fender ahs made some exceptional guitars and they have also made some pretty budget friendly and also crummy guitars. I would say that this is a budget friendly guitar for someone who wants to you own a Fender telecaster deluxe series guitar and doesn't want to pay the American price for one. Although the price isn't that much of a difference and maybe only the amount of a couple hundred dollars. So if you looking for a Fender Telecaster Deluxe guitar I would probably save a little bit more money and go with the American-made because it feels and sounds a lot better than this guitar.


This is a cool looking guitar over all with its unique place placement of the two humbucker pick ups. Traditionally Fender telecaster's come with two single quill pickups. However this guitar has to humbucker pickups which gives it a more beefier tone and overall warmer and sticker town. You also have a little bit different pic guard than the traditional Fender telecaster pick guard. Usually the pick guard on a Fender telecaster is much smaller where has this one covers more of the body of the guitar. So you have more of a Fender Stratocaster pick card that covers a lot more of the front face of the guitars body.

On this guitar you also have a little bit more control over the volume and tone knobs. Where is a traditional Fender telecaster has two knobs . One for the volume and one for the control. However on miss guitar you have two volume control knobs into tone control knobs as well as a pickup selector on the top portion of the body which is more accurate to a Gibson Les Paul guitar Dennis Fender telecaster guitar. Traditionally the center trail Telecaster guitar had to pick up selector right next to the volume and tone control knobs on the bottom and of the guitar. This one also features a nice vintage Sunburst paint job which is very elegant and very vintage looking overall. You also get a bigger vintage headstock that is more traditional to the older guitars from the 50s and 60s. Overall it's a pretty cool looking guitar and a very vintage look.


The tone is guitar is very telecaster tone but it comes with a much more beefier overall voice and tone. You can hear the body shape of this guitar as it is exactly the same shape is it any other fender telecaster but you get a much thicker and beefier with two humbucker pick ups. The overall feeling of the guitar is just a hot Rod Fender telecaster guitar. Much like the hot rodded fender Stratocaster guitars which are also known as super strats which carry humbucker pick ups instead of the single coils. This is basically did the exact same thing only in a fender telecaster version.

You can use his guitar with just about any amplifier the half. It's been a sound pretty good in just about any cleaning or any distorted amplifier that you half. The feeling of the guitar is going to be a little bit less substandard then a American made fender telecaster. You can feel it in the balance in the overall feel of the guitar if you've ever played an American fender telecaster. Just to be a little subtle differences in the neck and the feeling of it which will give you the understanding and difference between the Mexican and American made Fender guitars.


You can find these guitars for right around $600 used and maybe even less. I've never priced these guitars and no desire to buy one in the near future. I would certainly suggest owning a American version of this guitar over this one because of the build quality and standards. The overall feeling the guitar is not very good and I'm just not that much of a fan of the Mexican made guitars. So I would only suggest this if you are very tight budget. Otherwise I would suggest stating a little bit more money or selling something that you already own to afford a American made fender telecaster deluxe guitar
