American Standard Telecaster 2012
OK, I'm a hobby player so my review won't have the detailed insight you might get from a pro. Having said that, I've been at it for several decades and decided to add the Tele to my 1971 Les Paul and 5 year old Strat to complete to my "great guitars of rock" collection. I'm happy I did. Everything people say about that classic Tele sound is true. Get one. You'll be happy.
What made me decide to write a review, however, is the Sweetwater experience. The website is best-in-class. I got a call from a real person (thanks Art) confirming my order and asking if I had any questions. The Tele came in 2 days packed to withstand whatever evils might befall it during shipping. And, it was tuned perfectly when I took in out of its case. I guess an on-line shopping experience could be better, but I don't know how. BTW, I don't work for Sweetwater....honest. Good job guys!
