The pickups in this guitar make it completely worth it - big, thick, sound. Output is good, tone shapping is good. The whole thing is pretty solid. Two cautions - the neck has a microtilt which is not my favorite because the neck just doesn't feel as stable at the neck joint. Secondly, and most importantly, the quality control on the neck alignment is terrible. I've seen probably five of these guitars and three of them were crooked at the cutaway (meaning the low E at the twelfth fret was almost off the fretboard. Be sure to put your hands on the guitar, look down the neck, and make sure alignment is even. I got a good one and this has been my favorite guitar after having a LP Jr, Strat, and a Tele. Don't even worry about the MIM - That means very little nowadays. I wish it didn't have to break the $500 mark.

I received this guitar a few days ago and although I love its look and what the pickups are capable of (at least in my case) be prepared to do some work. The intonation was off, no big deal if you know how to tweak it, but the biggest suck factor of all is that the nut came unfinished. There were slots for the strings but they were basically all filed or not filed for any string other than the high E. So I had to actually file the nut for the strings. Okay.... that was a pain, strike 2, then to top it all off the pickups weren't properly adjusted nor were the pole pieces. And let me tell you something, after about two hours of adjusting I still can't get a D chord to sound without a terrible tremolo sound. This guitar sounds awesome for soloing and even some drop D heavy stuff but I'm at the point where I might just have to take it in for a professional to get the pickups right. Basically this is a project guitar (for me, I don't know if all of these are made by incompetent workers) so be prepared to put some money into it. The look, feel, and sound as far as single note play is great. Just don't get your hopes up for this thing to jam out of the box.

Gorgeous Guitar

By Wallis

from Houston

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

The telecaster in itself is an amazing guitar for many rock genres. Now it isn't for heavy metal and grindcore or whatever, but it's and amazing guitar. But the dual humbuckers add that meat to the distortion to make it FABULOUS is distortion. I use it in recording and it flows like a mother. Took a while for me to figure out the tuning knobs though? I don't know. I geuss it's just me.

Versatile..does most all styles well

By Don40va

from Fredericksburg.Va

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

If youre not married to any given style..this guitar may very well be the awnser..Best neck action youll find by far at anything near its price range..makes average players sound good with it's easy neck..and the pickups produce a wide variety of sound from twangy "Tele"..to bright "strat" to growling Les.Paul .Good guitar for the professional wanting to cut down on stage clutter with multiple axes on stage..and great for the hobby /novice or beginner who wants to play a little of everything.

Rocks hard

By Leif Erickson

from Reykjavik, Iceland

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This guitar aims to please, and it does. It fits my music styles pretty darn well which is thrash metal to hardcore punk to jazz, it does it all. I play through a bass amp (gallien krueger 112) and it does pretty well. All in all don't think, just buy the Fender telecaster deluxe

never would have thought

By ben

from colorado springs, co

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I never in my life considered a tele, but I had seen this one and it sparked my interest a bit, so I checked it out now it is my favorite of my collection, whether I am in the mood to play beatles, or metallica, the only thing I will do to this thing is probably change the tone pots, but my poor ibanez, laguna, and les paul are going to collect a little dust for a while

Beautiful Sound

By Politik8112

from Marlton, NJ

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

Last Christmas i got this Tele and I was so happy that I chose this one over the others. I play a lot of Coldplay, Oasis and U2 and this guitar seems to fit all bands very well. Like everone else says, the pcikups make the sound like three guitars: Tele, Strat, and Les Paul. It's a very versitile guitar and well made. As of now i have no complaints except for the price. It seems way too high and should be cut considerably. I strongly recommend this weapon of mass destruction because it can really rock out.

Thunder

By Victor Schmit

from Memphis, TN

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This Fender rolls thunder and purrs gently when asked. It handles well through quick chord metamorphosis and it moves in time with you through solos. "Deluxe" says it all. Don't be intimidated, though: It's a powerful instrument and seamlessly versatile, but it's approachable and easy to get acquainted with. It will become a best friend. (Double check the high E string before purchase to be sure it isn't off or slightly off the fret board.) If it's all set properly, plug in and hang on!

Awesome guitar

By SOS man

from Pensacola, FL

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This guitar is awesome! I currently have a Les Paul Studio and i just purchased this axe. It sounds wonderful through my Marshall. The neck pickup has a Les Paul sound, the middle setting has a Stratsy sound, and the bridge pickup has a Tele sound.

Beautiful Sound

By Michael Diamente

from West Paterson, NJ

Comments about Fender Classic Series '72 Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I got the black '72 Deluxe Telecaster for Christmas and I love it. But, what really blews me away is how beautiful the sound is. I was at my uncle's house and he has a white Tele Standard. But I plugged mine into his amp, gave him an "A", and the sound blew both of us away. "Thank You, Fender".
