Product Review

This guitar combines a satin finished fast neck with jumbo frets that makes playing superbly fast and easy and a perfectly finished body with matching headstock that is light but solid. The pickups are bright with some growl to them and the switch and controls are well crafted. The fretwork and neck finishing was flawless. The absolutely only flaw I could find on this instrument was that the sound differentiation between position 2 and the neck pickup was a bit too subtle — it was actually hard to hear much of a difference at all. But the tone and volume pots work without a hitch, which can help to add a bit of color that gives each position more of a separate identity. Overall, I am very pleased with the workmanship, playability and value of this Telecaster. The surf green color is also great and the subtle Fender logo blends in to the headstock in a very pleasing way.

Great guitar shopping experience

Product Review

Found the Tele I’ve been looking for at AMS and called for help to get it to my door. Adam went above and beyond after a small ordering hiccup to see that I received the right guitar at the best price. The guitar arrived in under 24 hours, in great shape just as represented, setup ready to play. Couldn’t be happier.

Get One Before They Are Gone!!

Product Review

This guitar is gorgeous first of all. The set up was nice right out of the box. The neck seems custom made for my hand and it feels a little lighter than my last Tele. The pickups are perfect and the tone controls allow me to be as Bluesy or as Metal as I want to be and everything in between. Thank you AMS for the payment plan too, I wouldn't be able to own this piece of Fender perfection without it. Mine is gold and her name is Suzie-Q.

Well worth the money

Product Review

The product came needing a complete set up. The action was way too high to be playable and the strings were completely out of tune BUT with a little tweaking and tuning the guitar sound great and plays like a Tele should. I didn't mention this is my first Tele and there is a learning curve with these things. I have a Gibson Les Paul, Gretsch 5120 and a Hohner HS 35 so this rounds out the herd beautifully. Looking forward to a long relationship with this beauty. Did I say I got the Aztec Gold?
