Far and above a typical telecaster
I saw this guitar and loved the finish on it so I
decided to try it I have American Teles and strats and this guitar blew me away. One of the best playing and sounding fenders I have ever owned. The neck is just right not too flat and not to chunky. It plays like a dream, the neck is phenominal, and the pickups are outstanding Really one of the best teles I've ever owned and it holds it own with an Americasn surprised me.. I was all ready to switch the neck pickup for a DMarzio but there is no need. These pickups have GREAT sound and this guitar can rock with the best of them. My american tele is gathering dust because I can't put this one down. Get this while you can. At this price it's the best buy on this site!!!
