Could not be happier
Its been about a month now that I have had my American deluxe Telecaster. All I can say is I don't believe anyone wouldn't fall in love with this guitar. My go to guitar has been my Les Paul standard but since purchasing this Telecaster it is pretty much a tossup. Some might think that is like comparing apples and oranges but it is a lot closer than I would have expected. Quality is absolutely TOP NOTCH ! The guitar is stunning to look at and seems to never go out of tune even switching back and forth with alternate tunings. I will say this, I have never played a guitar that plays as easily as this. It is also THE most comfortable guitar I have ever played. The tones are just beautiful and crystal clear as can be but can get crunchy when called upon. I find myself always reaching for this telecaster first. This is the fourth guitar I have purchased form Sweetwater and as always the case the service is sensational. My sales rep Geoff Allen has always done a great job of making sure everything operates smoothly. This is my second Telecaster and as much as I liked my first one, this one is definitely a step above and has surprised me with how much I have fallen in love with playing it. Worth every penny. Blues , jazz & fusion is what I prefer to play but now a few country licks are finding there way into those styles. It just seems to make you want to improve your right hand technique, playing this Tele. For anyone considering one of these guitars believe me when I tell you this is an absolute TOP SHELF guitar that you will be glad you purchased it. As a bonus the case is fantastic as well.
