Really nice guitar.
What is your opinion of this product?
I was a little nervous ordering online as my last internet guitar purchase did not go well; to be fair though that was 18 years ago. Guitar was packed well and set up was good right out of the box. The intonation and action were almost spot on and not a blemish anywhere. Only issue was the frets needed polishing as they were a little rough in spots. Love the pickups and after getting and playing this guitar for a couple weeks I see no reason to pay more money for the "standard" American made tele unless you are after a specific color.

Great Guitar, Awesome Value
What is your opinion of this product?
Out of the box, the guitar played really well, I had to make a minor adjustment to the action, as it was a little too low actually. The relief out of the box was good and pickup height was fine. The guitar sounds amazing, and has a great feel to it. The fret work looked fine and the finish is beautiful. The only thing I changed were the strings. I like a heavier gauge and the stock strings were super light. Other than that, I am very very satisfied with my purchase

One neck of a tele!
What is your opinion of this product?
First of all,it arrived early. I opened the box,I had ordered a hard case also and was pleaded my guitar was shipped in it! Thank you AMS. Right out of the box it was set up pretty good. The guy and finish is amazing. I like everything about this guitar. It plays great,looks great, and sounds fantastic. The areas pickups are just enough fur to play the blues. Even Like the 3 saddle bridge. Fret work is Smooth. Only upgrade I have done is a new nut. Love the vintage blonde finish. I would give it six stars if I could,it is that good of a guitar.

Absolutely amazing!!!!
What is your opinion of this product?
I was a little nervous at first because the price wasn't as high as other American Telecasters. I had absolutely nothing to worry about. Not only is the headstock stamped "made in USA" it feels like it. The tone is excellent as it plays so fast and accurate. Fantastic guitar for a fantastic price. Get the Blond color, you won't regret it ;)

Well worth the money
What is your opinion of this product?
This is one of my favorite guitars. I've owned as many as 35 Fender Telecasters and I have to say this one is one of my favorites. I love the tone of this thing and the neck is really nice. I can't find anything wrong with it.
