this thing is fantastic. don't worry about getting the american if you can't, this one is a perfect substitute, especially for leftys. dead simple in its options, sounds amazing for any style of music, and played through a box ac15, it's perfect. it came set up great right out of the box, stays in tune great, gets that nice trebly twang, the balanced middle position, and then the warm and smooth rhythm pickup sound. It's incredibly versatile, and can take a beating like no other. I've had it for 3 years and it still looks great after lots of use (mine was the burst finish). It doesnt feel too heavy, but still feel very solid so i'm not afraid ot really go at it with this. I expected it to be great and it met the expectations for sure. lastly, the neck, which was fatter than the old les paul 100 that i've had for 5 years now, feels amazing. Didnt think i'd like the bigger neck but its great. the finish on it isnt heavy so sweat doesnt cause problems, and i sometimes have to remind myself that it acutally has a finish because it feels so smooth and plain, unlike the heavily coated neck of my les paul. it's unbelievably comfortable. for lefties, this is a perfect choice. You'll be happy, trust me.

I have returned the product for a replacement with the hope that it was a fluke
Guitar appeared to be well made but had a bad ground problem that caused loud buzzing when plugged in. I tried different chords and had my son plug in his telecaster to make sure. His didn't buzz. Only when I pressed on the tone or volume knobs did the buzzing stop.
Bad buzzing problem when plugged in.

      Lefty Guitarists Do It Better!

      By william detucci

      from Boston

      Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Left Handed Electric Guitar:

      What a great sounding Thick killer weapon to own! Thank you Fender! Just wish Fender made more choices for Left Handed Guitarists like Tele's with Humbuckers; Colors (not just black, white, etc). The Lake Placid Blue is a beauty on this! The Fender MIM (Mexico) Left Handed Guitars are great! The Neck is smooth and the bright! Get this! It will change your life! Billy =)

      Just as Good as MIA

      By Phoenix McKinlay

      from Boston Ma

      Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Left Handed Electric Guitar:

      This guitar is fantastic. I've had mine a few years now and you can't beat it. I've played the made in america models and let me tell you, this guitar can give the made in america a run for its money. The smooth neck is easy to bend on and the pickups are amazing. This the only guitar that I think sounds good in the middle position. The finish on it is great, but look at it in the store first because I have seen some sunburst that aren't that great. But over all, no complaints.

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Left Handed Electric Guitar:

        I own Strats and wanted something a little different. I tried the Tele and was immediately impressed. Solid feel, great tone and great look. How much more old-school can you get than a Tele? Well, if you play country or blues you know these are great axes. But I play hard rock and metal, and I can testify this can hold it's own against any Les Paul or other hard rock axe out there. Ever hear John 5? He swears by Teles. Now I see why. Overdriven it howls, and that's with a standard MIM pup! Rolled back I love it's almost acoustic tone. Clear tones, solid feel, and versitility. What more do you want.

        Awesome buy! 9/10

        By Jordan Stackhouse

        from New Jersey, U.S.

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Left Handed Electric Guitar:

        All in all, this guitar is magnificent for any skill level. Highly recommended.
        The Telecaster comes equipped with the basic tone and volume knobs, along with a pick-up switch for bridge, middle, and neck. The single-coil pick-ups, while to some are bland, provide an excellent twangy, bluesy sound that bring back the infamous 50's style fit for almost any musician. However, I encourage anyone to have humbucker pick-ups installed. If you are on a budget, only purchase a neck pick-up for it is the most crucial to replace. If not, install pick-ups in both spots and a pick-up tap to alternate between combinations of double and single coil sounds. The humbuckers will grant your Telecaster the ability to achieve both the Les Paul and Stratocaster sounds, opening an even wider window of genres you can play with your guitar.
        The solid alder body makes this thing a tank (although I don't recommend smashing it into a wall), but makes it a bit more heavy than its Strat cousin. I chose to purchase mine with the standard Maple fretboard, which is great for that extra zing to that twangy sound. If you are going for the more warm, "rolling" sound, equip it with a Rosewood fretboard.
        As I stated before, the guitar is a bit heavy. However, it rests comfortably on your leg when jamming out at home. I've come to notice that the guitar doesn't hold the tuning too well; I've had to retune within a few hours of no usage. But in the end, the Telecaster is well-made and sturdy like any other Fender guitar.
        As one of the most iconic guitars in the rock scene, it definitely pulls together the old and new sounds proving to be an excellent, all-around guitar. Even though the American is obviously better than the Mexican, it's not worth that much more money. The Mexican provides the same of what the American can, so save your money.

        Standard telecaster LH

        By jim roche

        from Mass

        Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Left Handed Electric Guitar:

        I've been playing a semi-hollow body and the change to a solid body was pretty easy given the easy action and playability of the telecaster. It's a nice blues guitar that can also rock.
        Just what the doctor order for a solid body elcectric. Sweet and simple.
        I had to tighten the screws etc. but all in all a nice guitar. the single coil pick ups do have a little buzz when using the treble compare to the humbuckers on my semi-hollow body, a bit annoying but not a show stopper..On the up side, it's a breeze to tune and holds the tunning nicely.
        Good guitar for players on a budget. It has the look/feel of a classic without the price tag.
