General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
Let me state this first, I am a critical person. I was hoping for the best but prepared for disappointment. Step by step - the case is a well made, gorgeous tweed with a rich plush interior. The Tele is incredibly beautiful in every respect (more about that later). It was set up nearly perfectly, just a few minor tweaks, standard protocol. Playable from the moment I removed it from the case. Plus, it is an increasingly rare item - an instrument made here in the US, the home of Fender. That means something.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
No one instrument can do everything. This axe works for me and my approach to music. It encompasses a broad range of sounds within the needs of most clean musicians. If you are a shredder, there are better choices. If you are looking for a clean jazzy tone or a bright twang, this Tele has almost everything. The
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Smooth, clean neck contoured just the way I prefer, a shallow C shape. Controls are basic and simple.
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
As a jazz guitarist, the wide range humbuckers deliver just what I was looking for. The chambered body seems to lend to the warmth. For broader studio work, with the S-1 switch, this axe can deliver clean and crisp single coil sounds. That said, if you want a standard tele sound, you may want to stick with the standard single coil/lipstick pickups. If you want versatility, this is the way to go. The S-1 switch is very effective and, even while searching for a warm yet bright jazz tone, I was surprised at the sparkle it brought to the table.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
While I can almost always find fault with nearly anything, I simply love the finish. The Malaysian Blackwood top is gorgeous and the finish is impeccable. The birds-eye maple neck is highly figured on the fretboard, the back of the neck and the headstock. Quite beautiful!
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
If I had it to do over again, I would make the same decision. Slightly pricey but, compared to the other Telecasters priced lower (most made overseas), this was a great choice.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
Nearly perfect, only slight adjustments. But, it did come from frigid New Jersey to sunny Florida so … that is to be expected.
