Overview

Chris Shiflett has his feet firmly planted in two worlds--with impeccable punk/hard rock credentials as longtime guitarist in the Foo Fighters, and with an authentic love for country, as heard in side project Chris Shiflett & the Dead Peasants. His abiding love for Telecasters and for huge humbucking sound now comes together in one powerful new instrument with his name on it-the Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe.

Eminently affordable and modeled closely on Shiflett's favorite '72 Tele Deluxe, it features a roaring pair of new custom-designed high-output humbucking pickups, a 12"-radius rosewood fingerboard for easy bends with low action, custom-stenciled hard-shell case, and Shiflett's signature on the headstock. Tour bus, platinum records and the adulation of millions not included.

    Comments about Fender Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe:

    Love this guitar. It has a real solid Telecaster feel but is a little more comfy with the body contour and that gloss urethane neck is buttery smooth without being sticky. It can handle a variety of sounds but doesn't lose that Fender sparkle, despite its high output humbuckers. I practice for hours because it feels so good to hold. Oh and it comes with a quality hardshell case. I wouldn't chuck it off a bus, but it'll keep it safe from most environments.

    Comments about Fender Chris Shiflett Telecaster Deluxe:

    I've been in the hunt for a replacement to my 1997 PRS CE 24 Standard dual HH for the past year and a half. My main guitar is a 2015 American Strat solid rosewood neck with fat 50s. It's an amazing guitar and the PRS was dual HH guitar that I switched off with depending on what we were playing.

    I watched every video and demo of the guitar out there and it was between the CS Tele, Jim Root Tele and the American Professional Shawbucker Deluxe. I chose the CS Tele for the following reasons:

    Features - 12" flat radius, C profile neck and ROSEWOOD finger board, CS1 and CS2 pickups (very different and awesome at the same time).

    I played both the JR Tele (I loved it but not the pickups and not the price) and the American Pro Tele. I didn't find anything too great about the neck and feel on the American Pro so I nixed it right away. I wanted this to be value purchase.

    Pros:
    Fit/Finish - overall the fit and finish is great.
    Pickups - these are great. At first I thought I would get rid of them but I'm not so sure now after using it.
    Rosewood fretboard - it has a comfortable and warm tone that keeps it from being too bright
    Frets - are jumbo and awesome

    Here are the things that I don't like:

    Synthetic nut - that will need to go.
    Switch - needs to be much higher quality switch craft.
    Pots - I think there can be much more dynamics with better pots
    Input jack - this is another piece that I want to switch out
    Bridge - I'm thinking of putting on a Bigsby just because I miss my tremolo arm from the Strat but even if I stay on the hard tail, this one looks a little cheap.
    Glossy Neck - I need to sand this smoother it's a little sticky

    I gave it 4/5 stars only because of some of the components however, when you factor in cost the value is 5/5 stars. By trading in an old Ibanez guitar for $50 and getting an additional 10% off, the folks at GC did me right. This makes it a better deal than if it was used.
