General Your general opinion of this product. Absolutely the best bang for the buck! I've been buying and playing the Mexican Classic Series Tele's since '99 when they first came out. Except for the finish, they remind me of original 60's & 70's Tele's that I used to have. If your going for the vintage look and feel, look no further. These babies are it! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Extremely well made. This guitar will last you a lifetime. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I'm 52 and have been playing Tele's since the 70's. The tone of these guitars is exactly what you would expect from a vintage Fender. REAL bright and REAL snappy...exactly why I love them. You can adjust the tone knob on the guitar and you amp to get a darker tone if you want, but if you want Cash, Dwight Yoakam, and Buck Owens...this is it! Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I ordered the Olympic White Tele. Classic looks. Classic style.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This guitar like any other Fender is built to outlast the player. This guitar can take a beating but still play like it's brand new. The frets were done nicely and the paint had no blemishes. The old school 3 saddled bridge was a big selling point too. General Your general opinion of this product. I love this guitar! I have always been a Gibson and Fender guy and have mostly played Strats and Les Pauls but I wanted a change. This was one of the best decisions I could do. It's sound with the 60's single coils are perfect when being pushed through a nice over-driven tube amp and is chimey with a hint of twang when clean. It isn't a heavy metal players guitar for sure but can easily handle many other styles from blues to decently hard rock. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It's got the snappy twang that teles have come to be known for. I wouldn't want it any other way. The pick ups since it is a 60's reissue to an extent do have hum when being pushed. I simply use a noise suppressor and that seems to do the trick. It is very bright sounding, but it can go from a thin snappy sound to a nice mellow tone at the turn of the control knob Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish was flawless. The paint had no imperfections and the neck's gloss was perfect. No hang ups or cutting of corners from Fender on this beast

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Well made, form fit, finish and function. General Your general opinion of this product. If you want a great Tele like the original '60s one for a very reasonable price this os it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Very bright and typical of normal production '60s Tele pickups. Great for classic country, '60s pop/rock/soul/R&B, Output is just under 7K on both pickups. Good for Roy Buchanan type sounds also. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Finish is first class - Olympia White
