The Fender Custom Telecaster FMT Electric Guitar has tonal versatility and looks that make it welcome in any venue at a price that makes it a real Tele value. Mahogany body and set mahogany neck with rosewood fretboard and 6-saddle string-thru-body hardtail bridge provide great resonance and longer sustain. Cast sealed tuning machines keep tuning spot-on while stunning transparent finishes let the brilliance of the maple figuring shine through. Fat tones are produced by the Seymour Duncan SHPGP-1B Pearly Gates Plus bridge humbucker and Seymour Duncan SH-1N RP '59 Reverse-Polarity neck humbucker that can be switched from double to single-coil mode via a push-pull tone control.

Moi Bueno... This is a wonderful piece of musical art as well as a super sounding telecaster with various tonal abilities...it just depends on the player's level of expertise/experience. Workmanship is excellent; colors are beautiful (I chose the Crimson Red) and the Seymour Duncans with the Pearly Gates as well as the ability to go single coil, if desired, is just a big bonus. Flamed, carved & arched maple top, super hot Duncans, beautiful colors and binding, mahogany body/neck, great nut width: what more could Fender do for you. My good buddy Dave Williamstone has dubbed mine the Wolfgang Tele, after the American made Wolfgang with the binding, flame top, arch top and EVH super hot pick-ups. So get one while they last...a Wolfgang Tele for about $2700.00 less than Eddie's American guitar; you will not be disappointed, on the contrary, you will be thrilled. Oh, I forgot, smoked black quality chrome hardware with beautiful paint and nitrocellulose finish...with headstock matching the body color. It only weighs about 7 pounds...bonus. Keep on Groovin.' P.S. The guys at Guitar Center are great.
I've owned this guitar since I've started playing guitar...so you know that I love it. There has never been a guitar that compares with this piece of equipment. Amazing, from playing ability to sound. Anyone who has played on it has bragged about it. I love it !
I bought mine used a few years ago now. I own the amber colored one with a rosewood fretboard. When I saw it at guitar center, I couldn't help but give it a try. So I plugged it in, and the tele really came alive. There's so many awesome features built right into the guitar. The Seymour Duncan double humbucker pickups have such a full beautiful sound. You have the choice to make it sound almost like a les paul. I think that's pretty awesome, but I do love the classic tele sound. Luckily they added a push/pull coil option onto the tone knob. This gives you the option to play through just a single pickup, like you would on a classic tele. The tele is very comfortable to play standing or sitting down. It has a nice cutout on the body like a strat would have, and it has a slight curve on the front of the body. This is different than most tele's, where they're more squared. The one thing I wish it had would be a thicker neck. I play a lot of acoustic guitar, and I'm used to a thicker neck. But the thinner neck is more comfortable for a lot of my friends, who love to fly up and down the neck. Overall I love this guitar, and I'll probably never get rid of it. Try one out, you'll love it!
Ive always loved the shape of the telecaster, but i never had intended to buy one because i personally dont care for 9.5 inch fret board radius or the 2 single coil pickups. But this has a flatter fretboard that suits fast playing and high bends very well. It also has a pair of amazing semour duncan pickups that sound great for all styles. A set neck as apposed to a bolt on is a nice touch as well. I find this an all around awesome guitar that is extreamely versatile and also retains the classic tele looks(plus a nicer finish in my opinion). For this price it is a great buy.
Had my FMT Tele about a week now and still cant stop playing it. the more i play it, the harder it is to find a flaw. it looks, sounds, and plays great. the coil tap and great fender humbuckers give great versatility in tone. the set mahogany neck and mahogany body give great sustain. my only complaint would be that you cant really get a tele sound out of it. which should be expected from a mahogany body guitar with dual humbuckers. more guitar than you pay for.
First, the guitar I bought had Fender pickups. I ordered muy grande humbucker and a tallboy humbucker pickups by Rio Grande. Let me say these Rio Grande pickups are way better than the SD or Fender pickups. The Rio Grande pickups are true singe coil when the humbucker is split.Also I had a custom made second coil tap splitter but in on the tone knob as well has coil tap splitter on the volume knob giving a total of 12 different companations sound is incredible. I use a traynor tube amp what a big sound and the neck is smooth and fast action.If you want a guitar with versatility pick this one up.
I just recently bought this guitar at a local guitar center on a green tag sale for $400. Man! This guitar really, really rocks! It has a nice red shade with very nicely cut frets. One of the great things about this guitar is that it it not a bolt-on, but one piece. Some $1000 guitars are bolt-on. I'm not sure I'm in a position to judge it on it's value since I got it for very cheap. But, for $400 this guitar is amazing. You can make the guitar sound mellow, cutting, or in between. You can even make it have a single-coil sound by pulling a knob. Overall...Great guitar.
When I went to GC I pick up that guitar and fell in love! The guitar looked sooo good, felt sooo good and played soo good. I played through a Mesa Boogie F-50 combo. Great combination! Now here is where the problme starts... First, the guitar I played had Fender pickups. I ordered one and got mine with Seymour Duncan pickups. Let me say the Fender pickups are way better than the SD. Next the guitar is too twangy for my taste. A bit jangly as my friend would describe it. If you get this guitar make sure you get the Fender pickups. But if your into the SD get it. Overall it's a good guitar.
What a guitar! I own the red flame top one. The fact that it has dual humbuckers makes it a very attractable guitar. The sound is unbeleivable. You can get syrupy smooth clean to rock n' roll distortion. I owned a Squier Strat, which happened to be a great starter guitar, but this surpasses all guitars. I never liked teles but now I love them. Must have for any serious guitarist.
I bought this guitar based on the tone of the timber ( I used my ear against teh body unplugged ), it's appearance and play ability. It's Korean made with a straight thru neck and fixed bridge, thru the body string and dual humbickers with a single coil tap on the the tone control. There way switch for neck, bridge or both and jumbo frets. Body is light, arched top with a chamfered back. Positives: Pretty guitar that is light and playable. Greatest asset is the variety of tones it can produce that suit Jazz players to hard rock soloists. Excellent solo guitar, the tones are sharp and sustain is great very good. Fits a after market Tele case perfectly. No EM noise very clean. Negatives: Jumbo frets cause strings to bend with open play and create fret buzz on the low E On delivery, neck seems to be too flat and requires a little additional setup to remove fret buzz. Strap posts are weak and require better fixings. Too twangy with cheap 9's Output plug could be better quality Finish, mother of peral inlays were glued badly, excess glue. Pots are now scratchy after 2 years and three way switch is ordinary. Overall: All the negatives are easily remedied and I am now using Elixir 10's and the twang turned to a bling with zing. I run it with a RT2100 amp, and thru Digital effect via PC in my studio. Very versatile guitar that's relatively light, some say neck is heavy but for me that's becuase the body is light. Price was right, the sound quality very nice and versatility excellent Till death do us part.
