When I first saw this in the guitar shop I was instantly attracted to its unusual colour and the great price, when I was playing it, it's really a matter of what colour suited your taste, it is great for the intermediate player who wants a fender logo on their guitar. It plays well, the tone is fine and it looks great.

I have this guitar in Flame Orange.

I purchased this guitar after playing one at a local mom and pop guitar shop. The one I played was Arizona Sun and it was the only one they had in-store. I ended up ordering mine from a big box store because of the low price and financing. I love the color, as it changes depending on the lighting.

Let me start by saying that the first guitar I received had faulty electronics and did not work. The second one I received had an improperly cut nut, which caused the G string to pop out of the nut when doing bends. It some cosmetic issues as well. The third one was perfect.

After taking it to my luthiers at Top Gear in La Mesa, CA, she plays like a beauty.
The sound to me is as good as any American Standard and I was surprised at how quiet the pickups are. I only wish that the fretboard radius was a little flatter, but that's what my Deluxe Player's Strat is for ;)

I also wish they offered you a choice of either a black or white pickguard. I ended up replacing mine with a Fender 3 play white/black/white parchment pickguard.

I would put this guitar up against any American made Tele. In fact, it plays better than a lot of the American Teles I have played.

Excellent Tele with unsual colour

This is a Mex made Tele, absolutely defect free and with a perfect finish in all details, that I ordered through a web shop. The colour, Arizona Sun satin, took me by surprise when I opened the box, as it is VERY satin, and less orange/ warm than I expected. It is basically a bronze colour, quite unusual for a guitar. Probably if I had seen it in a shop I'd have a second thought, but since the guitar has not defects whatsoever and plays excellently, I decided to keep it.
The satin neck (with rosewood fingerboard) is very playable and smooth. The tuners works fine and smoothly but must not have a high ratio, maybe only 12:1 or max 14:1. The strings are 9-42 which is the size I like but I ended up with dirty fingers after a few hours playing. I will replaced them with coated strings. The set up was fine, no fret buzz, and no excessively high action. The pick up tone is excellent, very Tele and twangy, with a pronounced difference between neck and bridge. The sound is very good, both on the clean channel of my Bugera valve amp, and with a Boss distortion pedal, and makes the guitar very versatile - from country to hard rock. All strings deliver an equal tone (I had a guitar where the high "e" was standing up over the others).
All in all it is an excellent instrument, simple in design and construction - as a Tele should be - and capable of many different styles of music.
Considering the relatively low price, I dare to say it is a highly recommended buy for all, beginners (like me) as well as more experienced players.

Ordered this as I hadn't got a Standard MIM Telecaster and I wanted a no frills Tele (finish excepted).
These colours are great, probably for the more extrovert player.
I went for the Arizona Sun Satin. Orange. It's the first guitar I don't need to keep polishing my greasy fingerprints off.
As a standard Tele, the pickups are as expected - perhaps a little weak but nothing I can't live with.
I am really happy with my purchase. It's a great guitar, very playable and the Rosewood Neck is a great feature too.
