Proud to have this fine guitar!
29 December 2013
Excerpt: My first impression is, of course the beauty of this guitar! The looks, feel, and ease of playing is what dreams are made of. It has very nice tone and sustain. Except for the maple top and pickups, the select is very much like my american deluxe tele. ( another fine guitar ) I would like to know more about the pickups, other than just calling them select pickups. Also seems to be static while just handling, hope it is not a grounding problem.
Excerpt: I have owned many electric guitars (Jackson American Soloist, Parker Fly Mojo, Fender Strat, Fender American Tele, Gibson Les Paul and Gibson 335) and I come close to saying that this guitar is my favorite. It is just flat out beautiful and is fun and easy to play and get all kinds of great sounds. This is no one-trick pony. Mine has the gold hardware (honestly, could you do any different on this one?) and I just love to look at it.
Excerpt: I have had my gold Select for almost a year, and i still love the beauty and ease of playing. No picture does this justice, and the quality of the tone is super. As for the minor problem of the tuner button hitting the case, three seconds of tuning fixes that.
Excerpt: I was looking to buy a a new high end electric guitar to upgrade my old Telecaster (Partscaster) I had been playing for years. It had USA pickups and served me well. I originally wanted to get a PRS Hollowbody 2. I went to one of the big guitar stores here in QLD, Australia and played it for a good 30 minutes. Nothing. No wow factor. Nothing. It sounded good, but the neck was uncomfortable and I was a bit annoyed.
Excerpt: well the story is, I got a good bonus from work, so i thought i would treat myself to a guitar. So, I went to my dealer an ordered/paid for the 2012 custom deluxe strat, but after 2 months of Fender Australia not being able to give an ETD I was getting worried that i might lose my money so i went back to the dealer and chose the Select tele with gold hardware.
Excerpt: I almost let this guitar get away. I was looking at purchasing a Telecaster but didn't know if I wanted to buy this one or not but I'm glad I did. I purchased the one with the gold hardware and when it arrived it was beautiful. Pictures do not do this guitar justice. This giutar has so much detail you have to see it to believe it. The tones of this Tele is to die for and the neck is as smooth as butter. Fender did a great job on this guitar.
Excerpt: This one did it all for me. Looks, feel, playability and sound. After I got this one I got rid a quite a few guitars. A couple Fenders and even my LP Custom. I go through a lot of guitars, but this one is a keeper.
