I own a Gibson Les Paul, and I was not a Fender fan. I tried the strat and nothing. But one day I got a tele and it turned me. The neck pick up has a deep and rich tone for those nice blues licks or thick chunk distorted rock chords. The bridge pick up has a nice twang and bightness to it that is not disturbing, pretty nice to play lead rock licks. The maple neck is fast and this guitar is just an over-all comfort to play. I truely recommend this guitar. You get your money's worth. Go out and try one today.

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I love going into Guitar Center in Charleston because you can sit and play and no-one really hovers over you. On one of my excursions, I encountered this telecaster. I have longed to own a Tele and a Strat and have searched for both for years to no avail. Pretty much from the moment I sat down with this guitar, I knew something was different about it. It has a killer sound (IMO) and it felt like everything I played on it just sounded great. Have you ever sat down with an instrument and it just me you feel inspired? Thats how this guitar still makes me feel. Is it set up perfectly? No. But there is something about it. I played the $1800 Tele as well and still felt like this was the Tele for me. I even went to another store before I bought it and played one exactly like it and did not feel anywhere near the same, so maybe I got lucky with this one. I think some guitars choose you and this definitely a keeper for me.

    Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    Just picked up this guitar yesterday, i didn't want to pay big dollars for another guitar, and i had read a lot of reviews from many different websites- because i've always purchased American made and wasn't sure about MIM guitars. Got to say i'm really digging the pure raunchy sound i can get on the bridge pick up. A sound i can't get with my Strat. The jury is still out on this Tele. but i'm thinkin i'll be playing this alot.

        This is my first electric guitar and I can't believe the quality and workmanship built into an instrument at this price point. First time I picked it up I tuned it and didn't want to put it down, it was that comfortable!
        I may never pick up my acoustic again...

          Owned an American telecaster for many years. Really can not tell the difference with this Mexican model. Plays great and sounds great. Twang master.

            Dual purpose purchase. Wanted to get better playing lead licks in my mostly acoustic shows. Already I've increased in skill with the great string action on this guitar. Also I play a lot of classic country music and this guitar has the sound I'm looking for to bring in the sound of Buck, Merle, etc.

            I love the telecaster. I have had a wonderful employee at GUitar Center (A guy named Casey, who worked at Guess road store 4 years ago). He was a very customer-focussed guy and I wanted to buy stuff from him. I tried to give him my business again, but I heard he had relocated.

            I felt the set-up wasn't great. There's a buzz in the low e. But, overall I love the guitar.
