Fender TL62
What I love about the fender telecaster guitar is it's cool when unique sustain that is very different than any other guitar in his class. When I think about the Fender Stratocaster. I think about a good clean bluesy tone and a good hard rock tone. When I think of the fender telecaster I think of more of a cleaner tone that has a fun single quills sustain that allows for a ticking time and a note separation much better than a Fender Stratocaster. Maybe it's the body shape or the neck with these guitars but they just sound's so much different than a Stratocaster. Even though they're almost similar with the sing clean tones but they are very different in their attack and field.

The fender telecaster has a neck that is a lot smoother to me and allows for a better speed playing for country music specifically. I think this is why a lot of country guitar players lean towards this guitar because it has a very fast neck and you can get those lead lines a lot quicker in my opinion and a Fender Stratocaster.

This guitar is very unique and very different than Fender Stratocaster or Gibson Les Paul which are probably the two biggest rivalries in competition to this guitar. The tone of that has a nice clean jangly town that you you can get a good fun clean overdriven tone with. You have two single coils in the body with a volume and tone control knob. With a good set of pick ups this guitar can sing like nobodies business. It has a great feel and sparkle that is very addictive audibly. I absolutely love the tone and feel of the telecaster probably even a little bit more then some of the bigger body guitars. I guess it just depends on my mood whether I feel like a Fender Stratocaster or a telecaster but but lately I've just been leaning more towards the fender telecaster because that's possibly the music up and listening to has been featuring these guitars or I'm tired of listening to a Fender Stratocaster in general right now.

The tones guitar sounds great with the fender amplifier or even a Marshall amplifier. Pretty much any at the far you have will sound good with his guitar but I prefer something out on the cleaner side with an overdrive pedal. This guitar doesn't do high gain very well so if you're looking to do hard rock tones with this guitar you probably want to search for something else such as a Fender Stratocaster at the very least or definitely a guitar with a humbucker pick up installed.


I have highly recommend this guitar to anyone he's looking for a good clean sounding guitar. These guitars don't take distortion very well; it will sound good but it's not to the best. It's getting to be a good time for note separation and lead line playing. It has a very unique staying in a very cool sustain that is able to branch through different genres of music. At new you can find guitars right around $1200 which the great price for a great sounding guitar. This is an American built guitar and it has that quality and craftsmanship that you would expect. This is an exceptional guitar for any guitar player looking to expand your guitar collection.

Fender TL62
Guitar Made in Japan, the body is alder 3 pieces maple neck and rosewood fingerboard D 1 piece! 3 tone sunburst very successful. Negative, the red button on the sunburst was not made under the pickguard! :/ ....
I did some modifications: I replaced the bridges by other brass. The original pickups (very correct) were changed by Bare knuckes suggar Brown. In addition I installed a direct output and a device the tone for the 2 pickups in series, it gives me the sound of a humbucker.
I put 7 because of the body 3 pieces, even if the choice of parts is made and the joints are virtually invisible. 7 also because of the lack sunburst under the plate.


Nice handle and end that fits nicely in the hand. Access to acute is not a problem after a little time to adapt (ie this is not a SG). the guitar is not heavy.
Find a sound is simple: three mic positions, an already exeptionnelle versatility base, you can go from jazz, pop, blues, country, rock, fusion and hard rock. You just have to turn the potentiometer extremely responsive tone.
With the mods mentioned above, it allows me to direct output to have a slight boost for solo or have a killswitch (if the flight is zero). With the series connection of two microphones I put one foot in the world of dual and direct output I cruncher any tube amp. (Even a mixing console once: D)


A treat: This guitar has a very clean person, not really a TV even if it follows very clearly. The sound pickup is because of the bridges brass and rosewood fingerboard, less sharp than an original. Nevertheless it retains a characteristic twang a little more discreet.
To fast is a guitar to do everything (except hard core thrash metal symphony)
when it shows its limitations, it is only the sexiest, the guitar vibrates everywhere, the sound of metal easel outlet on hard rock. On Led Zep is magic (besides I play Led Zep exclusively on the TV, my Les Paul is in the cabbage, not enough rough)


I use it for 6 or 7 years, this is my main guitar, I'm not afraid of scratching or otherwise. This is typically THE guitar roots by excellence! When I do not know what I have her and I take after affine with the Stratocaster or Les Paul.
I bought this guitar in a famous shop in Bastille, I tried all the TV store (Baja, Us, even at 2500 €) and then I saw this little last 900 € it seems to me, without even plug, played acoustically, she immediately convinced me of his qualities.
I do it again without hesitation that choice today .... maaaaais now it exists in U.S. ... see.
Super shovel

Model japan 1999 reissue 1962 classic sunburst with dual binding characteristic of this year. american standard Tele bridge current, neck rosewood fingerboard 21 frets, thin enough, radius 7.25 ... mechanical vintage, pick 3 white folds.
I mounted microphones texas special, and changed the tusc nut to a bone nut. 1 3-position selector (changed with a new fender because the original was broken)
microphones origins were nice but lacked character, a bit dull. they were seymour Duncun N1 and S & D B1. I made an aluminum shielding cavities because bcp parasites buzz before, now it's nickel
mounted with strings D'Addario 10-46


The handle is top. the radius can not be delivered too low action if you want big bends. (Currently 2 mm fret12) but essentially rhythmic scratching ... I love this set, parfais for rythm soul, reggae, funk, crossed with a lot of chuckles, etc. ..
rather thin neck, nothing to do with a baja example.


its typical TV. a bit less twang without the bridge with brass saddles, but better accuracy settings, and a great twang anyway. the texas special pickups give character. bridge position very punchy, jazzy neck position, middle limit dire straits ...
I play Marshall Valvestate 8280 or so live rehearsal on the sound with 2 multi effects in series (one ToneLab st 1010 and zoom just to equalizer) and it works great!


I for 6 months. it is a TV, it is not to make satriani, but for well-typed rhythm is not better I think. I bought 500 euros OCCAZ + texas special pickups, so it's a good investment anyway, but compared to us on TV, I am not blind trial that we can differentiate ...
