Overview

The Fender American Deluxe Telecaster is the 21st century way to rock with a Telecaster. The compound radius fingerboard allows effortless string bending anywhere along the neck, and staggered locking tuners improve tuning stability for stunt guitarists who like to bend behind the nut. N3 Noiseless pickups provide improved Telecaster tones for snappy bell-like chime with no hum; other features include a bound-top body with belly cut, S-1 switching, chromed brass bridge saddles and beveled neck heel.

Quality problems.

Comments about Fender American Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I ordered this guitar based upon my previous experience with many Fender guitars and glowing reviews. The guitar (white with tortoise shell pick guard and binding with a rosewood fretboard) is a looker. Beautiful. The problems arise when playing it. There is a lot of fret buzz with a properly adjusted neck and medium action (bridge height) and the frets are obviously in serious need of a leveling. The noiseless pickups have a nice tone, but they are far from noiseless. They buzz more than any guitar I have ever owned, but I could get used to them and live with the 60 cycle hum. What I cannot live with are the snaps and crackles and pops that seem to coming from the neck pickup (they disappear when using the bridge alone). The loud pops and snaps ruin trying to play a soft passage with the neck or combined pickup positions. I have thought about exchanging the guitar, but after further research, it looks like a LOT of people have problems with these pickups, and at least a few people have exchanged guitars several times, with each having the same problem. I hate to give up on what is a very pretty guitar, so it is going to have a fret leveling and I plan to fork over some more $ and get a loaded DiMarzio Area T pickup set. I realize guitars often need some work, even when new, but this is very disappointing in an instrument at this price range. I am not sure how it could have passed the inspection process. Fender may be having significant quality problems as I also had some issues with my new Princeton Reverb. Fortunately, I was able to find that problem in the reverb tank and fix it easily myself. My final thought: I should have bought a Reverend Pete Anderson "T". Not as pretty, but it works.
