    Comments about Fender USA Professional Telecaster HS Electric Guitar:

    Picked this up from Guitar Center Fountain Valley and they gave me a great deal and made sure I got the guitar I wanted. I play reggae mostly but also play a lot of classic rock and 90's music and this guitar nails it all. You get the neck tone, the mix of neck and the humbucker, just the humbucker, or you can use the split tap to get two more tones! This guitar was my first American made having had a couple Epiphones and Ibanez before this and the difference is unbelievable. Very proud to own this guitar! Mine is Olympic White by the way!

    Comments about Fender USA Professional Telecaster HS Electric Guitar:

    what an outstanding tone! this guitar has the longest sustained ring that I have heard from a fender guitar,which is exactly what I was looking for!lucky for me I got help from a great sales man and fellow player at my local guitar center.i when I asked joe l. what was new for a good blues type guitar,he picked this one.this saved me a ton of time with all the models to pick from.we played the guitar through a marshall dsl-40c,which really brings out the tonal sound.you can switch from the bridge and neck pick-ups and then there is a push button built into the top of the volume knob that adds a crunch effect to the sound.the bridge is the familiar fender shape and color with the black dots on the frets,but the body shape where the neck is attached is totally new.gone is the extended part where the strap button attached,now there is a j-shaped cut-out.the bottom has a longer wider cut-out for easy fingering the buttom frets.the pick-guard covers both sides of the new style pick-ups and has a fine black pin-stripe all around the outside of the pick-up guard.it goes great with the white body color and black-dot fret markers.i added Schaller strap-locks to a black with white stitching 2 inch wide franklin strap,that adds to the black and white effect.the pick-ups are totally new,with the neck pick-up a small chrome cover for the monster sound it delivers,over-wound coils they say.very nice!!the bridge pick-up is also new,and has a zebra black and white color similar to seymore-duncan. solid body with no cut-outs on the back side.one chrome metal tone knob,one chrome metal volume knob with crunch switch button on top.same black buttoned bridge-neck three position switch and 6 inch mirror-chrome metal panel so you know she is a telecaster!!

        Played great right out of the box. I did a little fine tuning with the set up, and I cannot believe how good it is. It came with a nice little soft case, a $200 discount, and a $100 gift card. Thank you Guitar Center.

          Comments about Fender USA Professional Telecaster HS Electric Guitar:

          I've played acoustic for years, but this is my first "big boy" electric guitar. I've always loved getting my hands on my friends' electric guitars, and now I have one of my very own. I did my research and spent months noodling around with different makes and models. This a remarkable instrument. Telecasters like this are worth every penny. The electronics are top-notch. The humbucker produces great rock sounds, and the single coil produces very crisp clean tones. This instrument enables me to hear my music differently. I'm kicking myself for not getting this guitar years ago.

            Excellent guitar, bought one in November of last year and it's my favorite of all the Teles I've owned due to the versatility of the pickups & the feel of the neck.

              Comments about Fender USA Professional Telecaster HS Electric Guitar:

              I had a Gibson Les Paul Supreme and other Les Paul style guitars from Epiphone. I tried a Tele recently for the very first time and just fell in love with it. I like the feel of the guitar and the tone on this is great. I just love playing this. I like the way this specific model is configured and that makes it so versatile.

                Comments about Fender USA Professional Telecaster HS Electric Guitar:

                Never thought I'd own a Tele - always thought they looked funny and related them to country twang players which is not my thing at all. Then a friend bought one, slightly different than this one, and I was hooked. Had to find a particular one and this was it. Mine played pretty good out of the box. Needed to do a little tweaking to the saddles for my exact preferences and I changed out the tuners for a Schaller/Fender staggered set. White on white pickguard was changed for a tortoise shell just to give it a little contrast and it's perfect! The tone of this guitar is finer than anything I've ever had and I've had more than a few guitars over the years. Took a little time to get into the humbucker full on as it slightly muddies the fantastic single tone but it still sounds great! The only problem I've had is a slight ringing of the G string behind the nut which I cured by sliding a small piece of foam between it and the D string, no biggy issue whatsoever. This has become my go to guitar for recording as it is pretty versatile tone wise and it feels so good in my hands, perfect fit. I love it!

                    I Love this Guitar ! It would be what I consider the perfect Tele for me if this was in a sweet burnish or a two tone color. But the white, I'm learning to enjoy it. The Story goes, I went to the Guitar Center numerous times playing all the Tele guitars that caught my eye and some that were a little off the path, but as soon as I plugged this one it, there it was. The Classic Tele snap, Tone and playability I been searching for. This guitar is Not harsh, it's just plain tele tone. But when you blues dirt it, It's got that Texas and /or Southern Blues sound. Even more so when the vol switch button swaps the coil configurations. What I can tell you is that some of bands I been playing in, were doing a few Merle Tunes this past year and I did all I could to get that sound Roy Nichols got but coming as close as I can, I spent hours trying to get that feel as close as I can. Now, after getting this guitar, It was all there. I had the lick, but that sound brings it to life. This guitar is worth every penny and I suggest trying this through the amp you use and also with the Blues Jr. I've been favoring the Blues Jr more these days and even more now with this new Tele.
                    Fender did a fantastic job on the humbucker at the bridge. The Neck pickup is smooth and Not muddy. Very Jazz like ( and with a little stretch here ) maybe even Alma Brothers. All in all, if you want a Tele that stretches the boundaries from classic Snap with great tone to southern Texas like hot blues, I found it in this guitar. Not looking back, it's all forward from here.

                          I picked up this guitar today and I'm amazed. Other than tuning it came ready to play and it plays so wonderful, its comfortable and the finish is perfect. I'm a strat rose wood neck guy and being this is my first tele maple neck and the only tele I've played so I can't say if its the best tele you can buy, but its hard to imagine one sounding any sweeter. I shopped around for months and saw this one on sale and it was a done deal. Yes i would recommend this beautiful tele if you've caught the twang fever.

                            I've played many Telecasters from $3000 Teles to Squier Affinity's, and by far this is my favorite. The neck is comfortable for my hand, it stays in tune for days (really, days!), and the action is perfect for me. My only problem is that I sometimes get some hum or hiss from the pickups, but it is very subtle and hard to hear. Definitely my favorite guitar :)

                            Was looking for USA tele and GC had this one I picked up with a 20% of coupon and love the way the neck feels and plays.I play mostly blues and classic rock and it was a little twangy but I put some 10s one and it is a lot better,tone is just fine for what I like to play.Well worth the money.

                                I picked this up at Guitar Center after researching Telecasters out in the Market. I knew I wanted a Telecaster but most are HS. When I saw this Tele with SH, I had to check it out.

                                The Girl is responsive and has a good kick and tone. I play southern rock, grunge and Alternative and I love the tones that come out of her and I have yet to put her down.

                                I'm an intermediate player but the fretboard is a dream.
