Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Special Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

I have 3 other Telecasters and did not think this American Special would be as nice as my other Telecasters due to the low price point for and American made model, however I was presently surprised at the excellent build quality, color, and sound of the Texas special pickups. I had thought they would be too hot but frankly they are a little less powerful than the Hot Tele pickups on my MIM standard. They sound exactly like what a Telecaster should be. Very happy with this purchase and great deal from GC

Comments about Fender Limited Edition American Special Telecaster Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar:

Although it did need a quick tug on the neck truss rod to relax the strings from being high and stiff, this guitar is wonderful. Great Telecaster tone without that Icepick sound on the Bridge pickup. Not as dark green as on the website but a very classic color as if it was a 40 year old guitar. Excellent build quality and tremendous tone. I now have 4 Telecasters and 3 Stratocaster, problem is I love them all.
