    I used to think that Telecasters sucked, then I saw this one in Seafoam Green… wow! The guitar plays beautifully. It crafted very well. I just love it!

      Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Painted Headcap:

      Everything I expected from having owned a Telecaster - in a beautiful package. I pulled the guitar out of the box, tuned and started playing. It's holding tune now, even though the first day my playing would cause it to drift. The delivery of this instrument was perfect, basically all set to play from the box. Seriously fun guitar and I am falling in love with it.

        Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Painted Headcap:

        This guitar is perfect in every way! Of the dozens of telecasters I have played on, this one blows them out of the water. The neck isn't bulky on the first fret, performance is smooth, custom 58 pickups are edgy, clear and full through my twin reverb. The craftsmanship is excellent. And the color suits my chick vintage style. This is definitely a magnificent guitar and meant to be part of the Fender Magnificent 7.

          Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Painted Headcap:

          Such a solid feeling Tele. I traded in a Std. American for this and it has such great sustain and tone. Feels better than a std. rosewood fingerboard and has similar warm tone but seems even fuller and more well rounded. It still can deliver twang from the Twisted Tele pickup.

            Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Painted Headcap:

            Out of the box this is a killer Telecaster; the neck feels fantastic, and the workmanship is impeccable. I am very satisfied with the quality and how the instrument feels. I have not yet been able to run it through an amp, so my review is not about the pickups or the amplified tone, but I will say that just sitting at my desk at work and playing it the sound was very full. I'll update this review after I get a chance to play it through an amplifier. Very happy with this purchase. American Standards are the way to go for either a Stratocaster or a Telecaster, hands down.

            Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Painted Headcap:

            I wanted a unique telecaster that had great value as well. this guitar is certainly unique and comes with a lot of futures you'd expect on a custom shop guitar. I expect it will hold it's value well but I don't plan on ever selling it. I had to order it since they didn't have it in the store but I lived up to it's 5 star reviews that so many others have given.
