Product Description

The Fender Blacktop series presents a truly unique model in the deeply resounding form of the Fender Blacktop Telecaster Baritone Electric Guitar. A true baritone Telecaster, the Blacktop Tele Baritone creates a rich sound of distinctive depth and character with a 27 inch scale, lowdown B-to-B tuning, and a tonally versatile triple-pickup configuration-including a full-throated Fender humbucking bridge pickup-that covers the entire sonic spectrum from tic-tac twang to full-on kerrang!

The Fender Blacktop Telecaster Baritone features an alder body, maple neck, 9.5 inch-radius rosewood fretboard with 22 medium jumbo frets and aged white position markers. The versatile tone is provided by single-coil Telecaster neck and middle pickups, humbucking bridge pickup and five-way pickup switching. Skirted black amp knobs and black switch tip give this Blacktop Tele a great, distinctive look.

Overall Rating
Needs Some Tweeking
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I own 25 guitars from USA Custom shop to Asian. This guitar needed new strings (.013 - .062) and an attempt at intonation. Bought it as a scratch and dent. No major issues. String height was fine. String tree is a major cause of tuning headaches. I will add a longer screw and relieve the angle. As can be read elsewhere, bridge does not allow accurate intonation at the position it's fixed at. However, I don't expect to be playing this guitar much above the 7th fret. Plays well with a light touch strung B to B. I like the humbucker. The two single coils look nice, but don't add that much. I may try a lighter string gauge to see if I can get the intonation to work. Fit and finish is excellent, I really love the neck and overall feel of the guitar.
