iamqman's review"What a great axe!!"
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.
Fuckyeah!'s review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" Excluding Standard"
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.

brunodel's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" I love great sound"
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 ...

Mine is equipped with Texas Special pickups, which is great, and a 3-piece brass easel "custom shop", but I do not see much use.
Prices are talking about different views are quite different, because there is clearly a confusion between the models with texas specials series, and those that have them added.
Small additions that I suggested to the designers:
- Why does the truss-rod is it stashed in the body? It's more convenient on the head!
- The addition of a 4-position switch (21 € at banzai music) adds a humbucker-like sound on guitar and propels forward, level versatility.
- The shielding of the cavity, for example with aluminum sticker is a must! Why this is not done directly in the production?
I love this set. It is not as fast as my yamaha pacifica gibson sg or a buddy, but I get tired playing less.
This gives a good sound easy, there is no simple, it's a telecaster. Just grant and plug!
Good mechanical, it is little tune.
The sounds of the shovel are awesome.
I've had four years and I never quits! I made a fucking market research before buying it. I paid quite expensive, but I do not regret at all, I love it too! She has a personality, and it's worth it!
I use it mostly on a line6 flextone6, but found his best assets on other machines. Example of this incredible heritage AC15 ...
I had many compliments on my guitar, and the other guitarist in my group, playing on a gibson, wants one too now.

Pete-Layburn's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Lutherie therefore perfect for those who still have doubts about it ...
Besides, I say to critics of MIJ guitars: Japan is in my opinion to Asia what Germany is to Europe (a point of view industrial technology)
Now, would anyone doubts about the quality of a Telecaster if it was made in Germany?
very pleasant, not a log or a match, radius 7.5 ', 21 frets.
He reconciled with the pitch Fender.
I do not let go for several months ... it did not happen so frequently.
Is doubtless lies the difference with the U.S. (+ body into several parts). The original pickups are below what can be offered the violin. Illico replaced by Fender Custom Shop Texas Special is now the very serious, some would say a massacre.
My first Telecaster.
Bought used, 550 € + 125 € kit microphones (thank you to Alex for this very good at "Guitar Shop" near Bordeaux ...)
I urge those who finally want to try and understand why the Tele guitar is so legendary (providing a good set of micro short / medium term, according to his own style) &%&%&% &% The real alternative

reXet's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)" A superb value for money"
Being a fan of the Telecaster I had the opportunity to acquire one for my birthday. I am therefore left with a budget of 1300 € in stores in search of the Telecaster of my dreams.
I had the idea of me taking a Deluxe U.S. but after trying many models I was stuck on that Telecaster MIJ 62 because of his race. Its thinner profile suits me perfectly and I find the feel more modern in terms of comfort. The violin and the finish is beautifully made in this price range so I decided to leave this base and then customize it. Basic
this Telecaster has a typical sound with a pronounced twang, fans will appreciate. The 3 bridges (instead of 6 for modern guitars) would contribute to the sour tone. The pickups are well made but without much personality. If they are perfectly usable guitar still merits a change at this level to unlock its potential. Similarly, the original bridges are not very fair and so I decide to change them also but still compensated for the number 3 and steel for a more incisive. But I keep the plate in the thickness of the steel on the personality of his. Electronics is also a bit cheap and it may be worth to put real knobs CTS.
I purchased this guitar from Ishibashi, a Japanese store that delivers internationally. Thus the guitar cost me a lot more (950 € in total cash costs of customs instead of 700 € at Thomann for example) but I wanted a color OLB (Old Lake Placid Blue) that not found in Europe (there are only Red, Black and Sunburst here).
Basic guitar is a superb value for money. Japanese luthier do a great job and you have a real Telecaster with a twang and a pronounced personality that can not be ignored when you're a fan of this guitar.
For cons, I find that to get the most out it is very interesting to make improvements.
To me that's what I'm doing:
- Change of Bare Knuckles pickups by Brown Sugar
- Change of the circuit board by a plate pre-wired ordered from Acme Guitar (with real knobs CTS and Switchcraft jack)
- Change of jumpers by Glendale "Groovie Little 60"
- Change of base by a jack Electrosocket (renowned for its strength)
I also bought a Fender Deluxe Case for the guitar comes in a nylon bag.
The guitar is being edited at my luthier, so I will update this review after all operations on the guitar !
Izzy11's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
Fender Texas Special Tele Pickups
Alder body, maple neck.
Channel C: Hyper pleasant, rather than on my old 50's Classic Series Tele.
1 volume, 1 tone, 3-position selector.
Mechanical? but take the road a priori, not too much detuning.
Lighter than MIM.
10/10 for the violin, finishes and pickups.
10/10 at 9, not because of the microphones: see below.
The neck is SUPER nice for a Tele.
I felt good on the sleeves of Les Paul, it makes me change my mind. On my old Tele MIM Classic Series 50's, I had trouble making force barred solos with string jumps ...
It is very light, a joy to my shoulders after my Les Paul and my old MIM Tele.
Access to Acute: yes, but nothing more, unless a Start or an Ibanez, but it's still a Tele.
I've had it yesterday.
After tuning, load test. Well, the drawing is a bit steep for my taste, I'll come back in 10-46, but that's a detail (it must be a currently 10-52). When empty, there's natural sustain, a good sign. Good resonance across the wood, it feels when you hold the hearing.
Test on a 5W tube amp Blackstar.
By the time the lamps warm the amp, you plug the grattoune. First clean sound on the neck pickup. REALLY sound a little warmer, I expected a mix Tele (I'm not too much for her too sharp and sometimes slamming Tele). I had before microphones SD STL/STR2 I had before on my MIM: very good microphones own with little background noise, but too much "twang" Tele.
Bridge pickup: it goes good, however I think I will use little in his clear, this position does not suit me rarely on guitars. However, this is very unpleasant on this guitar with these pickups is the breath that is much more pronounced than with my old MIM with Seymour. This will be corrected with shielding of the cavity + 1 jack my best today.
In crunch sound, bridge pickup: a massacre! Frusciante's sound on the album Blood Sugar Sex Magic. No frills and very little adjustment on the amp is really sound.
In neck pickup is great for blues solos sound a bit warm.
Not too tried saturated fat: it's not my style, but what I can say is that the microphones do not seem too crachouiller, which is good for singles.
I've had it yesterday.
In point of comparison, I had a good Tele invoice, a Fender Tele MIM Classic Series 50's, but in a tone deSousa: microphones means very original (they even crachouillaient horribly simple crunch). After a good replacement Seymour Duncan STL/STR2, microphones, high quality cleaner, but it was better for her too like slamming my ear.
This 62 MIJ Tele Custom is over by the handle much better, her sound much more rounded (due to the choice of Texas Special pickups and an alder body), but while remaining Tele.
I did not want microphones Stack, let alone humbucker on my Tele. Not at all mind a Tele in my opinion.
Acquired at 580 € including shipping to OCCAZ 'is excellent value for money.
It will still "invest" to correct this horrible breath (jack and shielding). This is an excellent television that will fill the pros I'm sure.
For blues, improv blues sound a little warm, a little funk - rock / funk is the foot.
I do not want to get into comparisons with American, I never tried. But the bar is set very high!

brui2fon's review(This content has been automatically translated from French)
we are really dealing with a guitar "reissue" ie a copy of the model 62
Pleasant is a small word for this race, it is puzzling gameplay
treble c never evident on a Telecaster, but not c it is asked
access is very serious though, lol
standing, it is positioning itself very naturally on the body, and its weight is not a problem
to get a good sound, with this type of guitar "vintage" is very simple, just plug in a good amp!
It is absolutely ideal for any play
For example: POLICE CLASH, blues, funk, rock, even jazz ...
Andy Summers used a 62 tele and this reissue sounds the same, c simply amazing!
it is a guitar that has the "twang", which is rare at this price. it is quite snapping, normal tv, micro bass is unusually hot, I prefer it to my strato!
the three positions do offer a range of very usable sounds.
I for 1 year
I love it, really, it was a discovery for me, my first telecaster ...
certainly not the last
yes, I will redeem their eyes closed
