Comments about Fender JA-90 Telecaster Electric Guitar:

It was a special order so none of the staff had seen one. It took me an hour to get out of the store because all the staff wanted play it. They gave it high marks and the setup was perfect right out of the box.

Comments about JA-90 Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I am not a professional musician; play only for personal pleasure. I had played at JA-90 in the store a few years ago and somehow realized immediately that it was the "right one." It has exceeded my high expectations.
