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 have played for over 50 years and professionally for over 25. I have repaired and setup guitars for that long as well. In my humble opinion, if you don't have the money to afford the American Standard Tele or above, properly setup these guitars are great and very well made. I can recommend them to just about anyone.

      Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      This is a great guitar for a relatively low cost. Before I bought this guitar, I had never really thought about getting a telecaster but then I saw this tele online, did some research and purchased it (without even playing one first). I must say I have yet to be disappointed. This is a versatile guitar that feels great, sounds great and looks killer. Its great for rock, blues, reggae and hard rock. I plug this into my Marshall DSL and the tones is get are unbelievable. Playing red house by Hendrix or killing in the name of by Rage Against The Machine have never felt so good. I feel bad because since I bought this guitarI have been neglecting my Gibson Sg and Mexican Strat but hey, this guitar is the awesome!

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I had been looking for a nice Tele for a very long time. I came across the Sunburst Standard Telecaster at GC and it was love at first pluck. The tones are definitely Telecaster stuff.

        It plays quite easily. The frets are nice and smooth. The pickups are very responsive. I have several guitars, but this is one that I always go for when jamming around the house. I have really enjoyed this sweet guitar.

        I have got to express my gratitude to Guitar Center for this offering. It was marked down to at such a ridiculous discount because I purchased it during their Guitar A Thon Event. There are tons of wonderful deals at GC during that event. Thanks GC. I'm so glad I got this instrument.

            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.

              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...
