General What is your overall opinion of this product? I am very happy with this satin finish tele. My first tele w/rosewood. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Quality of the instrument is fine. Solid. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The weight and feel of the guitar is great, not a burden at all to put on and play. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone are really nice here, pleasant and warm to bright and snappy with color and nuance Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I knew what I was getting into with the finish and was feeling I would like some gloss. However, that is not the case anymore. I believe the satin finish allows the body to breathe and I like the satin finish very much. A white pickguard was installed to lighten up the look. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? A solid value on its own. I participated in a Fender rebate offer and received a hardshell case with no charge. Very nice. Playability How was the action out of the box? I believe the guitar was basically ready to go right out of the box.
Great guitar and great store

General What is your overall opinion of this product? Not only is the product excellent but my experience with AMS was too. Ordered Monday morning, shipped 2 hours later. Would have had it Wednesday if it weren't for FEDEX but that's another story. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I've owned MIM Fenders in the past and not been disappointed, but I must admit that their seems to have gotten better. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Feels like a great playing Tele. I did have to adjust the neck relief and intonation but fully expected that shipping from New Jersey to Indiana in February. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Tone is great unplugged and even better plugged in. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I got the Blaze Gold and I gotta say the pictures do not do it justice. The satin finish is beautiful and does not show fingerprints and smudges like a gloss finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I got what I expected. These MIM's are almost as good as MIA's for less than half the price. Playability How was the action out of the box? Had to do some set up but that was expected.
