Nashvile Power Tele after a month in the Keys

(4.0)

I've owned this guitar and have been using it on 2 to 3 gigs a day working up and down Duval st and all over Key West for the last month. I must mention that I have owned the acoustasonic tele as well for the last year and a half and a fine guitar it is. That being said although it has a magnetic pickup, that does not make it an electric guitar in the true sense. You are somewhat forced to use acoustic guitar strings to get a proper acoustic sound. Otherwise is rather thin and tinny sounding and then it still doesn't capture the essence of an electric guitar.
This Nashville Power Tele has satisfied that for me. Great sounding and great playing axe. IT captures that electric essence from top to bottom. Nice mix of strat and tele tones here and the acoustic sound is super impressive. I used to be forced to bring 2 guitars to work with especially if I had a band gig in the evening which is common for me. I'll play 2 shifts at the Ocean Key Resort or Pierhouse and use an acoustic guitar for my solo gig. Then head on over to Sloppy Joes or the Hogsbreath to play a band gig that night. It covers that much territory and I have used it so much that it has a bit of relicing on it. LOL. I love this guitar but I have one issue. It is a procedure to switch between the acoustic and electric sides of the guitar with a mono cable and I'm having a bit of a problem using the Y cable as the electric side wants to bleed into the acoutic side when I use an A/B switch. The sounds are there and sound great. Great playability it's just a major pain in the ass to switch from one to another mid song. A switch to turn one or the other off on the guitar like the acoustisonic would have been better the rolling one side down and the other side up. Any help on this would be appreciated and if this weren't so much of an issue I would have rated it 5 stars across the board. HELP HELP HELP

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.
Highly recommended.
