General What is your overall opinion of this product? Great Guitar! Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? It suits any genre metal, blues, jazz you name it. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? very comfortable neck Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? thick, bright, hot, dark and smooth it sounds awesome on my 65 deluxe reverb amp. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? not a big fan of poly / glossy finish I wish they come in thin nitro or satin finish. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Worth the price! Playability How was the action out of the box? a little off, very minor adjustment. I wish they come with a saddle height adjustment wrench and truss rod wrench I didn't see these tools in the box.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? This Tele is surprisingly well made. I remember the very first run of MIM guitars, many years ago, and they left a lot to be desired. The Blacktop series absolves all the sins of previous inferior models, and really showcases the quality control at the Ensenada facility. General Your general opinion of this product. In the realm of $500 tele's, this guitar has to be the king. Great feel, great playability, and great tone. It's hard to beat. You could spend a whole lot more, but why? Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? In my experience, the import guitars I have owned did not come equipped with very good pickups. They were mediocre at best. I was pleasantly surprised by the Blacktop pickups! I can best describe them as being of the 'hot vintage' variety, in fact, they sound a lot like a SD JB model, but with a slightly different eq tweaking and resonant peak. I would dare to say they will cover all but the most extreme types of musical styles. Run through my supersonic twin, they sounded wonderfully creamy, very touch sensitive, and meshed very well with the inherent tele twang. Run through my 6505+ half stack, I ran the cat out of the living room! These pickups work ridiculously well with high gain structure amplifiers. Crunchy, twangy goodness, with harmonics leaping of the neck from everywhere! I already had a set of Fralin's that I was going to put in there, but I decided to run with what I have. They are good. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? I received the guitar with a flawless silver finish. Great finish on the tinted neck as well.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Great quality. Straight out of the box It played great. It needs a little setup but it is a solid guitar. General Your general opinion of this product. I really like the silver finish with the maple neck. It really is a beautiful guitar. I love telecasters with humbuckers. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? I love telecasters but am not a fan of single coils, so the Blacktop series with the humbuckers is the perfect combo. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The silver really sparkles. I can't wait to see what it looks like under stage lights.
Amazing Guitar for the money.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The quality is every bit as good as the USA models. The only thing I wish Fender would spend more time on is getting the intonation at least close to dead on. This goes for USA and Mexican. The state of the art factory in Ensenada does quality work. General Your general opinion of this product. Im very impressed with the Fender Mexican guitars. Every one I have had has been extremely well made. The finish on the one I got (black) is flawless. Almost every USA black guitar has had swirl marks. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The humbuckers have a very good tone. The single coils in the other models are lacking and I usually replace them with Custom Shop pickups. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The black finish is flawless, I couldnt find a single mark anywhere.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? For a MIM guitar, this one rivals those made in the USA. General Your general opinion of this product. I have been playing telecasters for a while. I love the twang and was needing something with more heft for a rock project. This guitar, loaded with humbuckers, solved the problem. Great fit, finish, feel , and most importantly; tone! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Hot, mellow, thick, thin? All of the above The tonal variations should suit any style of music. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint is great but the neck is the star of this guitar. It had a comfortable chunkiness to it and exuded great quality, almost vintage or aged. The maple looks awesome and straight as an arrow. The frets are finished nicely.
