Premier Guitar recently offered high praise for the Fender Select Telecaster, awarding the instrument five stars out of five for tones and playability/ease of use and four and a half out of five for build and value.
“The Select Telecaster reviewed here is arguably the most traditional instrument in the Select line, and it may be the most handsome, too,” wrote Joe Charupakorn. ”It’s also a very refined electric guitar that reminds you what a near-perfect platform the Telecaster is to begin with.”
The magazine noted that the Fender Select Tele is a solid value for those in seek of a custom take on the classic instrument.
“If you’re among those who’ve sought boutique alternatives because you’re a Tele player with champagne tastes, this Fender is as thoughtfully crafted and executed as many of the astronomically priced boutique T-styles out there,” Charupakorn concluded. ”The truth is, you’d be hard pressed to find a Telecaster nicer than this at any price – and at a street price of $2,150, that makes the Select almost seem like a bargain.”
