    Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Telecaster Maple Fingerboard:

    I have several other Telecasters and Stratocaster all American made and I must say that this guitar is every bit as nice as any of my 6 other American models. The finish is amazing the neck is absolutely perfect straight and setup was spot on don't see that much from other manufacturers. I was pleasently surprised. bottom line great guitar at a great price. $600 to $700 street.

      Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Telecaster Maple Fingerboard:

      Always wanted a telecaster but wanted to find something affordable and that played well. I tried a number of less expensive telecasters and fell in love with the blonde version of this model. When I saw the cherry burst version on sale online I decided to take the plunge. When I picked up the guitar it played just as nicely as the blonde one I had liked. The finish is great, the feel of the neck really nice, and the tone wonderful. If squeals like a telecadter should.

        one of the nicest guitars I own better looking than catalog or online photo absolutely perfect neck with properly set and cut nut. Great tone a bit hotter then my 2016 American Standard, still sounds great actually love the extra gain for feedback notes at end of songs. great value

            Comments about Fender Special Edition Deluxe Ash Telecaster Maple Fingerboard:

            This guitar has great feel, though it will probably take some tweaking to get it dialed in. The color and finish are great, construction is as expected for the cheaper Mexican version as opposed to the American models. Sounds like a tele should with plenty of bright snarl on demand, but can warm up well enough to play some blues. Overall I am very pleased with it, though my wife is upset I handle it more than I do her.
