The Fender JA-90 Tele Is A Beast!
Straight up, and great guitar, well conceived and executed. Don't buy into that snobby "Oh, built in Indonesia? That's not Fender!" line of crap. Their quality control must be incredible; fit and finish are perfect, no flaws, gorgeous gloss transparent red paint and that matching headstock is killer with the gold Fender logotype. But the sound - the Seymour Duncan SP90 soap bar single coil pickups give great warmth and sustain from the semi-hollow body design, but it will sit up and growl with the best of them. All electronics were tight, no crackling pots; action was surprisingly well-set right out of the box. The neck and fingerboard are straight and true, and the playability of this thing is just a joy to behold. It is a great addition to my stable of players ... but for pure beauty, it rivals my Heritage Cherry Explorer. Very happy, and thanks to Jim Adkins for developing the model off of his TC-90.
