Summary: This guitar has a maple fretboard and very low action. As a rule Mexican Stratocastors are not very well made but I am enjoying mine greatly. It hasn't given me a problem yet. It stays in tune well and has a nice sound. Very important to get a nice amp with this guitar.
Pros: It has a great sound and low action. Very easy to play. Stays in tune well.
Summary: Wish I had bought one of these right at the outset. Worth every penny. Trial and retired so many amps over the years. Needs a pedal for drive and dirt but everyone knows its the clean and reverb which counts. Great service on day of purchase even got a cup of coffee.
Summary: Not the first fender amp I've owned but by far the most usefull at normal giging volume and very sweet sounding due to the fact you can crank it and get the valves cooking , I've owned a 64 super reverb in the past and found it just too loud for general use , the low end from the Jensen speaker is unreal and I have it set on 3 ! ,go try one and be prepared to get your wallet out.
Summary: Really pleased with this amp, its the best clean tone I found for the money, and it takes pedals very well. It's a nice size and won't cause you any back problems. The build quality is very good and i believe it will stand the test of time. Excellent service from the staff at Andertons, who were on hand if I needed help or advice, but didn't pressure me. You won't be disappointed if you buy this amp.
Whatever guise you buy a telecaster in you must buy one!

Excerpt: The fender telecaster, look at it! The most benign, basic guitar you can get (though updated from the esquire days when one pick up was all you need). It shouldn't be pretty or exciting but there it is drawing you in with such simplisitic lines, cunningly simplistic in fact. I can add little to the fine praise already poured upon it, just in truth if you are a guitar player YOU NEED THIS GUITAR. A sound quality unheard anywhere else!
Excerpt: I've owned a Fender Telecaster for around 1 year and have never looked back. Having previously owned various other Les Pauls, Arch-Tops and Strats, I can say this is defiantly the real deal, both in terms of looks and build quality. The stock pick-ups, tuning pegs and bridge are all of a high quality, the first guitar I've ever owned were I've never felt the need to upgrade or swap the stock hardware.
Summary: I did my research before buying this amp! The fender '65 deluxe reverb has rightfully had fantastic reviews. This is a perfect combo for small pub or club gigs, rehearsing or recording. It is along with the fender 59 bassman ltd the most toneful amp I have ever played through. This amp has been an inspiration and has had me playing it all the time. There are two channels, each with high and low gain inputs.
It depends on what you want, if you like how it sounds you'll want it! Don't buy it for how it looks

Excerpt: So, as you are reading this I would imagine that you are looking to buy a reasonably expensive guitar so therefore imagine you have some experience of playing guitar and have some ideas as to what you like or want?! I was fortunate enough to have come by one of these through a couple of lucky swaps. I have on numerous occassions in the past sat down and played US Telecasters in music shops and can honestly say that I have never been overly enthusiastic about them.
