This is the first Fender I have bought since my brief and unhappy flirtation with a Strat in the mid 70s. I have always been keen to own a Telecaster and have borrowed a few over the years whenever I felt like a break from my usual collection of fixed neck guitars from another famous American Company! The piezo capability was probably what drew me to this model but it is the three magnetic pickup arrangement which I find most pleasing. The bridge pickup has all the snap and bite that made the Tele famous but it's the other pickup combinations which surprised me the most. The bridge / middle and neck / middle combinations have the 'Strat' honk and the middle on its own has clarity, especially when backed off a bit. The big surprise is the warm 'middly' tone which is apparent on all the settings except when the bridge pickup is wailing by itself. This is a feature that everyone who has heard me over the last few years has commented on. My pickup of choice for most of my playing life has been the P90 and most examples on my guitars sound very harsh compared to the Telecaster.
I originally wanted to use the piezo bridge to give me an acoustic sound for strummed passages without changing guitars but I have found that the choice of amplifier or PA system is crucial to get an authentic acoustic sound. What I have found most useful to me is the ability to have a clean sound, from a separate amplifier, blended with higher gained sounds to give power and clarity. It is absolutely possible to get a convincing acoustic sound from the right set up but I have decided that this isn't as important to me as I expected.
My Tele is now my main guitar. I choose it first every time and my other guitars rotate as my spares in case of string breaks. I play mainly classic-rock, country-rock and blues and there is nothing which it doesn't do well. The controls are simple and soon become second nature. It has all the sound and vibe of the classic Telecaster and then the extra versatility.

Love this guitar. I used to bring both an electric and an acoustic to my gigs, but now I can use just this one guitar. From the sparkling sounds, to the growl of the tele, to the live acoustic sound, this guitar does it all. Now don't get me wrong, it is NOT an acoustic guitar, but it sounds close enough on stage where I have people looking for the acoustic. Also, just as every tele does, this guitar cuts through the mix; you can always hear it.

I have owned 3 other Tele's before this one and I got rid of them. I picked up the power Tele with the rosewood neck and Fell in love with it. I also like the bridge pickup feature, it gets a really good acoustic sound, I don't have to change guitars, plus it adds a few extra sounds that you can't get on a regular Tele or Strat. I also own a Strat that I have played mostly for the last 20 years, now it's my back up to the power Tele. I play Classic Rock, Blues and Country. Black Sabbath to Hank and don't have to change Guitars.

I've owned this Tele for a couple of years and am very impressed with its fit, finish and versatility. The neck is very well finished and there are no sharp fret edges. It stays in tune even after big bends. With the 3 pickups, 5 way switch and 6 piezo pickups with separate volume control,you can get almost any sound you want...tele through strat and beyond.
