General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Fantastic guitar, the build quality is outstanding and the tone is even better. Hard to believe anyone would not be more than happy with one of these, they are great instruments.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
The quality is excellent like I said. Al parts are very good quality and fit together nicely. I look my guitars over when I get them and cant see any imperfections in build or parts. The bridge, neck, frets, tuners all are great. The rolled edges, fretwork and satin finish on the back make the neck very smooth.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The neck feels very comfortable. I was choosing between this an American vintage with a 7.25" radius thinking it would be more comfortable to play. After playing this for just a few minutes I found it to be the most comfortable Tele I've played, and I have played quite a few.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
The tone is bright and snappy with that Tele spank, but it is not too bright or ice picky. Nice midrange too. I just roll the tone back a bit on the bridge pickup.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Stunning, flawless finish. And I'm very fussy, this Tele was perfect.
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I actually feel like I got more for the price then what I expected. The fit and feel was even better than other American Standards I've played. I don't know if Fender improved the 2012 models over the past year or not but I've had earlier 2012 models and this one with a 2013 serial number feels and sounds superior to the former ones. The black tolex case is very nice too, I like this better than the former molded plastic case they use to come with, it also has two compartments within for storage, nice feature.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
That's a matter of opinion but for me, mine is perfect out of the box, Fender did a great job setting this up.
