Fender Standard Telecaster
This guitar is awesome for the money, love the neck, and love the tone.
This tele is fantastic. I played all the teles that Sweetwater had to demo, but they didn't have a MIM standard on the wall. They got one from the warehouse for me to try and it spoke to me. The satin neck, the tone, it all felt perfect.
A+ to Fender and A+ to Sweetwater!
Some 20 years ago, I bought a MIM Strat - What a disappointment. The guitar just didn't have a good tone and it just felt like the cheap guitar that it was. I ended up selling it, and I thought to myself "never again".
Let me tell you folks, the times have changed!!! I don't like to review products until I have been able to spend some time getting to know them, but I have literally played this guitar for 10 minutes, and I can say without hesitation that this is a very nice professional quality guitar. It compares very well to my American Special Strat that costs almost twice as much. No joke.
The finish is beautiful, it is extremely well made, the hardware is of very good quality, and the tone and playability is everything I hoped for and more! If you have any doubts about the quality of this import, you can lay them to rest. I highly recommend!!
This guitar is awesome. I love the tone and how easily it stays in tune. If you like telecasters, this is a no-brainer.
