It is THE TELECASTER

By Serguei

from Moscow, Russia

Comments about Fender Vintage Hot Rod '50s Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I have been playing it for two weeks, and I am enjoying it. Being more of a Gibson man, I knew it would take me a little time to get used to playing it, but in fact it was not that much of a problem, although it does feel different, particularly when it comes to bending. The model itself is truly great, both in terms of the versatility of the sound it produces thanks to a 4 way pick-up selector and the look & feel. It is hard to make verbal descriptions of the sound, but to my ears this model gives you everything what Telecasters are known for: from that clean clanging sound to powerful overdrive tones. It is also just the right thing for playing slide. The feel of the instrument is really amazing: the maple neck just feels right in a hand, the quality of finish is top class. To sum it up, it is THE TELECASTER.
