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.
