I wish I could play as good as this great guitar sounds... Once plugged into my Blues-Deluxe Reissue... my dream sound has come true.... I just can't put it down :-)

This guitar is absolutely outstanding, the best I have played or owned! There are a great set of tone variations from gritty and "bitey" to thick and smooth. I'm playing it through a '65 VOX AC30 and it is a match made in heaven. This guitar has an indescribable dynamic range, you can hear every slight nuance of every note you play yet it is so forgiving. The S-1 switch activated puts the bridge and neck pickups in series and gives you an incredibly beefy mid-range tone which releases a bark of authority I haven't heard on a Thinline, all this whist you still hear that classic hollow-body sustain. The tuning is great. The look of this guitar is something to behold, classic yet so sexy. I have it in Olympic White. This guitar will be a war buddy to you giving you a fantastic tool to craft tones and ideas for many years to come. Good job Fender!

I was at Motor City Guitar looking at the higher end gear and this Natural beauty caught my eye. The first thing I noticed was how freaking comfortable the neck was. I wasn't very familiar with compound radius necks. All I knew was that instantly I HAD to plug this baby in and check it out. The longer I've had this guitar, the more surprises on finding out about it.
Whenever my friends come over this is the first guitar they want to pick up and play. I have right now I think 10 or 11 guitars. Various Fenders and Gibsons, high-end and low-end guitars. This Tele is consistently the first or second one people want to pick up when they come over. Also, the tortoiseshell binding is just classy! I think this guitar is worth a lot more than when I paid for it and I think it'll be my number one or number two guitar for a long time to come no matter what other guitars I may find down the road.
