Reviews and Problems with Fender Nashville Telecaster

Nice Guitar, but needed some adjustments
29 August 2012
Summary: Ok here is the scoop!!! My first guitar I returned to Music 123. It was very heavy and tone was not great, plus some fret buzz on down the neck even after a proper setup. My second guitar better weight (lighter and more resonate sounding). My issue was fret buzz again when playing down the neck of the guitar. However, I kept this guitar and made some slight modifications. I installed a new bridge from the standard Mexican tele.
Summary: I had read many positive things about this guitar before purchase, but still Im a little bit positively surprised by the quality of this instrument. Good workmanship, nice sounds and an over all comfortable guitar is what the Mexican Fender plant deliver here. A detail thing like how well the edges of the frets are made (no sharp ends, at least not so far...!
Summary: This is the guitar to get if you want something in-between a Tele and a Strat. It has a rich, fat tone and it is super versatile. I have the candy apple red version, and love the look. The construction and quality are great and it says in tune quite well. This is one electric that can act as many.
Summary: I've played Fender guitars for over 40 years, and the Nashville Tele has the most satisfying sound I've ever experienced..., full, rich, and with as much (or as little) twang as you will ever need...I would highly recommend this guitar to anyone who ever plays country, jazz, or blues. Versatile is it's middle name.
Summary: What a great sounding guitar. I love the combination of the bridge pup with the middle strat pup. Twangy, but not over the top. Useful for blues, rock, and country. Nice and easy to play as well -- I have the rosewood neck, but wish I had the maple.
Summary: The most interesting thing about this guitar is the versatility! 3 single coil pick-ups and a 5 way switch certainly give the options to play a variety of genres. The neck is as smooth as silk. Put it through a chorus and a vintage Fender Amp and you will be amazed. The only caution I have is that the machine heads are vintage and difficult to string. You can find replacements through most parts dealer.
Summary: I OWN MANY GUITARS BUT MUST ADMIT THIS IS ONE OF MYBEST(TO MY SURPRISE) AFTER READING REVIEWS.IN MY COLLECTION I HAVE A GIBSON BLUES KING,GIBSON LES PAULCUSTOM,WASHBURN J6,WASHBURN D46 SCR,ARIA PRO(THAT BELONGED TO MY FATHER)WHICH I'M PROUD OF. AS YOU SEE I HAVE A FEW. BUT THIS GUITAR STANDS RIGHT THERE WITH THEM IN APPEARANCE;PLAYING I WAS AMAZED AT HOW IT PLAYED RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX.I PLAY FOR A GOSPEL GROUP AND SING LEAD.
Summary: This is a very nice guitar, and perfect if you want the true Fender sound without being able to shell out a grand at a time. With a little compression, it sounds great on any amplifier. I do have three problems with it: 1. If you plan on Merle Travis style fingerpicking, you're going to have to learn to play without knocking your thumbpick against that middle pick-up. 2. You can't select the classic bridge/neck pickup combination on this model. 3.
Summary: I bought my Nashville Tele in 1998 after being away from playing for 20 years. Saw this at a store when I moved back north - and they had the off-white color I liked! Still looks and plays great, nice action, very comfortable, love the Strat pickup though I use mainly the bridge/strat or strat/neck combo for the humbucking. I play it through a Peavey Classic 30 tube amp using the drive settings - nice, warm bluesy tone!
