This Tele Deluxe is a nice throwback to the older Telecasters of the 1970s. The guitar oozes vintage styling, with 2 covered Fender humbuckers, 4 knobs, and a 3 way toggle switch, ala Les Paul guitars. The aim of the original Telecaster Deluxe was to compete with Gibson on their features, but offer them in a Tele package, and it was a big success. The guitar is still as cool now as it was then, and it plays very well to boot!


The covered humbuckers get a nice, mellow tone, which compliments classic rock, blues, slide playing, Motown, and even jazz very well. The switching setup makes the guitar respond tonally just like a Les Paul would, and that is a wonderful thing.


This guitar was meant for soulful playing. The neck just begs for string bends and vibratos, and the smooth singing nature of the pickups gives this axe a great edge in soloing. For anyone that loves the LP tone, but would like a bit brighter cut and Fender feel, this is a great choice.
