    My new American Deluxe Tele

    I had a tele back in the early 70s that I sold for peanuts and have always wanted a new one.. I have a great colletion of guitars including Les Paul Delux, PRS, Taylors, Ovation, and a Strat.. I love the look and feel of this guitar and it sounds awsome! One of my best purchases of 2012

    One Great Telecaster

    I have been dreaming of haveing a Telecaster and when I saw the reviews on the American Deluxe Telecaster I knew I had to have one. I called Chris Carter at Sweetwater and he filled me in on it and was a great help to me.
    The Guitar arrived and when I took it out of the box then opened the case I was ecstatic at what I saw. What a beautiful instrument this is the fit and finish are superb and the finish is out of this world. I have had a lot of guitars in my life but this is truly the best built one.
    It is so easy to play and new strings along with a perfect setup and intonation make it one great buy. The S1 system along with the N3 pickups are great, It sounds so great and it is just what I was wanting.
    I would not hesitate to encourage anyone to buy the American Deluxe Telecaster. I know I am wondering why I didn't do it earlier.

    Top Tele

    I've owned several Telecasters for years, and for me the new American Deluxe is the pinnacle expression of the instrument, save for something truly unique out of the Custom Shop.

    The look is completely class, and the finish is beautiful. Materials are all top notch. The N3 pups work great. True Tele snap and twang, without the noise, and the S3 switching really does give the additional fullness that makes this instrument perfect for any style. But, the most important feature for me is the neck. The fretwork is exceptional, and the compound radius makes it about the most comfortable neck I've ever played.

    In addition to doing original material, I play a variety of over 300 covers in a working group - and I have to say that this version of the Tele is absolutely great for EVERYTHING!

    Fit and finish were very good (not 100% perfect, but damn close). And the guitar was set up very well. My only surprise about this guitar is that more working pros are not using them.

    As usual, Sweetwater was a pleasure to deal with. I cannot recommend them or this guitar enough!
