My first one

When I got this Tele for my birthday I thought: "Oh, man...it's a Squier". That was a year ago now. I started exploring the guitar and I found out that the neck is comfy, easy to play. Probably because short-scale guitars are me thing, but I was really surprised because it was a Squier guitar.
Still, this guitar has it's pros and cons:
Pickups ain't that good and the bridge saddles aren't good at all.
If you're gonna buy this one, I recommend getting some real Seymour Duncan pickups and a better bridge.

Snazz up the graphic on headstock

The guitar has good snap crackle and twang. It has a fast neck and bare bones design but please snazz up the logo on the headstock, it looks cheap. It belies the sounds you can get from this guitar. It is crazy to slap a $499 MSRP on a guitar that looks cheap but plays good. Fender, make us proud to own this. I was playing one in a store and it was attracting unsolicited compliments about clarity of tone and then they looked and it was a Squier that looked like an Affinity.

Alluring but the novelty wears off

When I first saw this product, I thought that my prayers had been answered: a semi-hollow Telecaster? I bought one for $270 and was ready to play, but I then realized why they weren't popular: it's chambered on ONLY ONE SIDE. I get the all-time wimpiest noises ever played from my top strings when my amp isn't in "solo mode", although that may be the fault of the inconsistently mediocre pickups. This is a fun guitar, and I'm keeping it, but it's more a collection piece then anything else. I recommend it for someone looking for a guitar to customize and improve.

It's a shortscale Tele!

I love Teles but prefer 24 3/4 inch scale - this guitar has it plus it's a Thinline!
It has good weight and balance, not too heavy. Very good tone, good for rock and country music.
The Duncan designed pickups are bright and clear, and I like them.
The tuners are solid but I really, REALLY, wished they had a higher gear ratio!
The finish is very well done. The rosewood fretboard is nice and dark and matches the black body on my guitar well.
I absolutely hated the 6 saddle ashtray bridge, so I replaced it with an aftermarket one.
The maple neck feels nice, but I had to shim mine to get the proper angle in the pocket.
The top-hat knob on the pickup selector switch was too large and got in the way so I swapped it for a regular round tele one.
I applaud Fender for producing a shortscale Telecaster, and I hope they continue to do so in the future.
Now I wish fender would make a shortscale Tele with an Ash body, and a 9.5 inch fretboard radius, but while I'm waiting I still have my cool little Squier to play with!
