What is your overall opinion of this product?
I bought a great guitar. The American Standard telecaster is well built and finished. The custom shop pickups do not require replacing. The twisted Tele neck pick up reminds me more of a Strat sounding pickup, then a neck telecaster, but thats a positive in my book. The Broadcaster bridge pickup, seems a bit hotter then the normal Tele bridge pickup, but once again to my liking. Sadly the case is on par with the cheapest molded cases i have seen for <$75.00 on the auction site, Fender dropped the ball on that. Aside from what Fender built, my Guitar arrived without having been set up. It was effectively unplayable higher then the 12th fret. After being properly set up the guitar is fantastic. The frets are finished very well. Sounds great, plays great, looks great.
