    Comments about Fender American Special Telecaster Electric Guitar Rosewood Fingerboard:

    I bought this during a sales promotion last year, and this guitar is a legit steal at that price. I was able to finance it for 36 months interest free, so my wife couldn't complain either. This is my number one guitar in my depth chart at band practice. If you love Telecasters and want a solid american instrument, then look no further.
