Classic vibe custom telecaster

My telecaster arrived in pristine condition and it was only slightly out of tune. It is so nice buying things from Sweetwater, no matter how much or how little you spend they seem to have set the standard for their industry. They take the time to answer All your questions and even offer advice when you ask. Back to the guitar, I don't believe that for the price they ask for this guitar that anyone could get a better deal. The vibe is definitely classic, the fit and finish is impeccable. The neck is wonderfully thin and silky smooth. The action could not be better right out of the box, and the intonation is spot on! It plays and sounds as good or better than my AMERICAN standard Tele. I bought this guitar and a great fitted SKB case and a FSR Super Champ X2 all within a month. I'm in heaven man!!!!

I don't miss my Custom Shop Tele...seriously!

To make a long story short, I recently liquidated a good number of very high end guitars. Let's just say it was partly a change of priorities, and a desire to spend as little as money as possible yet still have great playing, great sounding guitars. I had been having great success taking other guitar brands and types and putting great pickups in them. It was time to do a Tele and I had just recently sold a spectacular, rarely appointed Custom Shop Tele. I was concerned my taste for the finder things would leave me disappointed. Well, I am here to tell you. I cannot remember the last time I spent this little on a guitar yet found myself wondering how in the world they were able to make something so good at this price.These guitars don't come with cases, so its an interesting sensation when you open up a cardboard box to find a 100% perfectly fit and finished guitar. This thing looks and feels like it came from the custom shop, and I should know! Plugging it in I found other rave reviews about the pickups to be accurate. They are of appropriately low vintage output, but they sound fantastic. Vintage Tele all the way. The only reason I went through with the pickup swap is because I had already ordered the new set and I really needed noiseless pickups. The neck is perfect as are the frets, They are installed, dressed and polished perfectly. This guitar plays like butter.Having been a semi-pro for many years and most recently depending on my guitars week to week while leading worship at my church, I can tell you that I am more than satisfied with this outstanding guitar, which is outstanding at any price.

Great Guitar

I bought this guitar for my son for Christmas. He loved it! I have owned several Fender Teles. This guitar rates right up there with them The fit and finish was impecable. The guitar sounds great. I would highly recommend it to anyone on a budget!!

Great Guitar

I have owned several American Std strats and teles over the years and like many, believed that the American Std was a far better product than what could be produced from China. I first saw this guitar at a local store sitting among several Std teles. It was absolutely stunning in finish. The American Std next to it actually had a run in the finish. I compared this guitar to several other standards in the store and it held its own against all of them in finish, fit, ease of playing and sound. I ordered from Sweetwater because of their reputation and the fact they do a 55 point inspection of every guitar before it's shipped. For $379 you just cannot beat this guitar if you're in the market for a tele. Guitars are a personal preference and I know there are die-hard American Standard players who will swear the Chinese products can't compare, but they are wrong on this model. It has a sleek neck, excellent action, and depending on your style of music, paired with your choice of amp, sounds great, and looks great too. If you feel like you need to pay $600 more to have USA stamped on the headstock go ahead, but you're not going to notice $600 more in sound or finish quality. Besides, if you want different sounding pick-ups, etc., you can still do that for less than $600. Do yourself a favor and check out one of these and then use the savings to buy a good cord and amp!
