Tele is the master

Fender Classic Japan '62 Telecaster CustomPublished on 01/31/12 at 08:58
The Fender telecasters has a great tone that can get a very unique voice and sound all to itself. Even though it really falls in line with the other fender guitars such as a Fender Stratocaster, the Fender Jaguar, or jazz master or anything else you really feel that Fender tone and presence within the instrument. However it does have its own distinctive voice that sounds nothing like any other guitar in existence.

UTILIZATION

It has such a unique voice and sustain that sounds very pleasing to the ears and if you use a nice boosted clean amp such as a Fender twin reverb or a Vox amplifier and a nice delay or modulation effects then your going to get along with it. In pretty much any...…

Even though it really falls in line with the other fender guitars such as a Fender Stratocaster, the Fender Jaguar, or jazz master or anything else you really feel that Fender tone and presence within the instrument. However it does have its own distinctive voice that sounds nothing like any other guitar in existence.

UTILIZATION

It has such a unique voice and sustain that sounds very pleasing to the ears and if you use a nice boosted clean amp such as a Fender twin reverb or a Vox amplifier and a nice delay or modulation effects then your going to get along with it. In pretty much any setting or any musical saying you find yourself in this guitar will sounds very good.

SOUNDS


I really like the tone of the Fender telecaster when you couple it with fender hot rod deluxe amplifier. Use this guitar with an amp with a good overdrive pedal such as an Ibanez tube screamer or any other boss overdrive coupled with a good delay or modulation if you get great sustained tone. But these guitars do not sound that great with a load of high gain distortion from a pedal or an amp. The Tele has a great sound for most styles of music but doesn't really excel at the nu metal type tones.

OVERALL OPINION


These guitars are very well-built guitars that sound good night after night is getting as well as any recording session. You can find the new for right at around $900-$1100 or so on the new market. You can you find them pretty frequently any use classified section of many online forums classifieds. You know when you get one to be a great addition to your guitar catalog or even a great primary instrument for any of your musical needs.

So then .. Made in Japan Fender x)
Telecaster bridge type.
Channel fairly flat rosewood.
21 frets, pickups Fender Telecaster Vintage
3 position selector ... typical telecaster



USE

The handle is top ... Varnish lets slip the hand easily (unlike US Highway 1). The rosewood gives a nice look at the guitar.
For the weight is impecable .. lightly! Like any good telecaster x)
The access to acute and becomes difficult for the last 3 frets.
Personally, I chose this guitar after testing the Baja who have a sound much too flat.
This one has a sound very sharp and acute (with the bridge pickup). That's what attracted me <img class="smiley"...…

The neck pickup is a little too flat for my taste but it should still


SOUNDS

I play mostly rock n roll. If you are a lover of blues, jazz and rock, this guitar is for you <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_lol.gif" alt="" />
Acute this merveileux guitars.
I play on a Marshall transistor .. I recently tested my telecaster on a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe that I will soon aquérir <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_biggrin.gif" alt="" />

The Hot Rod gives an even more vintage rock n roll (slightly crunch).

I also said that I play almost all the time on the bridge pickup <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" />

NOTICE GLOBAL

I have this from a fender 1 month

I tried 3 other model before this one:
- The Fender Telecaster Custom 72 -> finally, it is not really a telecaster
- The Fender Telecaster Highway 1 -> the handle is not pleasant (not enough varnish), this guitar has no "personality"
- The Fender Telecaster Baja -> it seems to hold a baseball bat, the sound is too flat for my taste .....

I really Regrete not having bought .. It really has nothing to envy its American cousins

What I like most: - The sunburst color with the binding
- Sound edged vintage for pure Rock n Roll

The value for money is correct ...

Note: It may be costing less in Germany, but the guarantee is only 3 years there. In France, it is guaranteed for 2 years, but an extension of 3 years is possible on the internet (free) ... This gives a 5 year warranty! Fender thank you France <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" />

To you comment <img class="smiley" src="https://fr.audiofanzine.com/images/audiofanzine/interface/smileys/icon_wink.gif" alt="" />
Rock n Roll Forever <3

Bridge 3 Section T8 Spiral Saddle
Kluson Type Machine Heads
Chrome Hardware
Pickguard 3-Ply Aged White

9 comes as no cover or gigbag

UTILIZATION

First let me say that the paints used are of excellent quality, the finishes of the handle (frets, shape and inlays) are perfect.
Note the head of the guitar that has no hole to adjust the truss-rod, it is necessary to remove the handle to access the truss-rod.
Ergonomics was that good Telecaster.
It also has a good weight, compared to the Lite Ash's custom '62 is heavier, probably due to the alder wood is heavier than ash.
To my amazement, these vintage style mécanniques KLUSON required to provide good agreement.
A vacuum it sounds already in hell, it's plugged up!

SOUNDS

I read in prior reviews criticisms of the microphones, which are nevertheless of special texas made in usa! Having owned a lite ash before, I can tell you that Seymour really cheap (dsl for people who have the lite ash) next to the Texas Special. The twang is well, even "big" harmonic saturation packed! The bass are dry!
Meanwhile, the micro neck brings all the softness you would expect from him, great, but may lack dynamics, but perhaps I quibble here!.
I read in forums as electronics on this guitar is "light", however I do not have parasites and knobs are changing the sound gradually. So everything is ok! So I do not change these texas special pickups that provide more side to this Péchu Japanese TV has an american standard.

OVERALL OPINION

I sold my lite ash tele to buy me another, a real TV, not one made in factories without Cort pickups fender. I went to Cologne, MusicStore, and after several tries with the Baja, I left with the classic Fender telecaster custom 62, which only cost me € 649. Than € 649 as against its qualities of sound and its look and is well worth it. To me, it is as good as TV but U.S. has its next vintage (bridge and mechanical), so without having the Bi-flex trussrod novelties and delta tone. So for lovers of vintage features! I count it later install a kit Bigsby "F"!

If I had to buy a TV, I think I will redeem it, with a kit to add a Bigsby!
