Great Guitar/Bad Neck was shipped anyways
What is your opinion of this product?
I really like this guitar more than I thought I would ...The frets were so sharp at the top and bottom of the neck line they could cut you as you as you played.. Had to have a luthier file them down and properly set up this axe. Cost paid by me for set up and filing work.. NOT IMPRESSED...

Great guitar, definitely a keeper
What is your opinion of this product?
So far,so great. The guitar needed a light setup, as most new guitars do. The neck is a nice shallow c, making it great to play for me. Pickups are great, they transition well from clean to dirty. The pots feel a little cheap (not much resistance when you turn a knob), but sound fine. Definitely recommend this beauty, and with rosewood going away, get it while you can

Awesome Guitar
What is your opinion of this product?
I have multiple telecasters but this one with the Texas special pickups really has a bite to it that I really love and the playability is great but the finish is a little lackluster and it should come with a hardshell case

Nice Tele!
What is your opinion of this product?
The guitar looks and plays great, the pickups sound great, the neck is comfortable,the guitar overall has really good action that's the pros now for the cons, the clear coat has feather scratches, the paint job has imperfections, and for a guitar over 1k a hard case not soft should be included

"Excellent Telecaster Worth Every Penny"
What is your opinion of this product?
I'm primarily a Les Paul player (I own 4) and also have a '99 USA made Strat that I like. I have owned a few USA made Telecasters over the years and while they were all excellent guitars, I never really bonded with any of them and sold them to fellow musicians. I found myself needing that trade mark "Tele Twang" for a couple of songs I have recently written and am in the process of recording and bought the Lake Placid Blue American Special from AMS. The guitar arrived quickly and in perfect condition with zero fit or finish flaws. all Electronics function flawlessly. Fender sets up their Tele's with .009-042 strings at the factory and I prefer .010-046, so knowing I would be changing strings, I purchased a set of (3) Wilkinson compensating saddles ($32.00) so I could precisely set the intonation and swapped out the stock saddles and changed strings. After tweaking string height & setting the intonation it plays, sounds & records great. An awesome value for an american icon.

A great American-made Fender
What is your opinion of this product?
I needed a Telecaster with a rosewood fingerboard but I didn't want to spend a lot of money since I already own American telecasters with maple boards. I liked this guitar so much I bought the stratocaster in Surf Green. I never played jumbo frets before and I think they're great. Can do bends so much easier with the jumbo and where else can you buy an american made Fender for under a grand?
