Great Telecaster at a great price
This is the first Telecaster I've ever bought and yeah I'm pretty blown away by it. I pushed the guitar through a regular Fender Blues amp and through all three amp modules in my Mesa Boogie Mark V. In each of these amps the guitar held up perfectly. I normally don't stick with the pickups from Fender (I have a very sweet Strat too!) but in this case I think I'll stick withthe original setup. The guitar sounds very cool in each of the settings I tried with it (and I'm far from finished) and the pickups lived up to the Fender name in this case. Of course, my "sales engineer" made the whole buying experience a lot of fun, made me a great deal on this guitar and I actually enjoyed the purchase experience. A good sense of humor goes a long way. I'm never going elsewhere for my gear but Sweetwater. It's worth it, in every sense and every penny.
