Summary: It's a nice guitar,works well,sounds good,looks good however it is made in Mexico and you get what you pay for, good bang for the buck.If you want an American made Tele then pay the extra $300.00. All things taken into consideration this Little Tele is ok, buy it and you won't be disappointed.
Summary: Love my tele, I use it constantly in the studio, the ultimate rhythm guitar. Nice and jangly sounding, also use it for clean lead breaks. The ash body is nicely figured, I replaced the white pickguard with the real deal, a black Bakelite guard, Teles always look best with a black pickguard in my opinion. Replaced the 3 steel bridge saddles with the high sustain brass ones like the originals had and it made a huge difference in the sound, more sustain and tone.
Summary: This is my first guitar. I only asked for a standard tele, but I received the 50s tele instead as a gift. They didn't tell me either, and I only found out later after looking at other teles, which is when I had my first epiphany - this is different. I later had another epiphany once I started playing the guitar: this is a really, really good guitar. The construction is impeccable.
Excerpt: Qué se puede decir de una Fender Telecaster que no se haya dicho ya? Es la guitarra que hizo historia y marcó un punto de inflexión en la música moderna. Este modelo es lo que se llama un modelo "vintage", es decir, una reedición exacta del modelo original, en este caso, de la Fender Telecaster original del 50. Se mantiene absolutamente todo respecto al modelo original, pero aprovechando también las nuevas tecnologías.
