Only black guitar I would own.

By bswift

Comments about Fender Deluxe Blackout Telecaster Electric Guitar:

The neck tinting is beautiful. I waited to take off the plastic on the pickguard for months. When I did I was very pleased. Great looking guitar. Very elegent looking and great gloss black finish. Oh yea, how it plays. Well the neck pickup is very bluesy sounding. It seems to be a bit lower output all around compared to a 96 mim strat. Perhaps that is what they mean by vintage style pickups. Still sounds good you just have to turn up the amp a bit more. The neck feels great to me. Really smooth. The deluxe bag that comes with it is about what the minimum bag ought to be like. The old bags that come with the mim standards are cute but not as nice as this one. Really, they should not skimp on the bags even on the low end. Save those for the squires.... Having three pickups gives you plenty of tone options on a tele. No trem / tuning issues to worry about but still get a twang tone on the bridge pup combined with the mid pup or a good rock rythm tone with the mid/neck combination. If you want a tele but like the three pickup options, this is for you.

I Love the Blackout Tele

By Jim Weller

from Austin, TX

Comments about Fender Deluxe Blackout Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I've been wanting a Tele for a while now, but I just loved the versatility of my Strat. Immensely playable, the Blackout Tele is the best of both worlds. The extra pickup and Strat-style switching gives this Tele some bite and a lot more tonal range than your standard. The neck feels great and with 9's you can get some nice bends on it. I play through a 30 watt Marshall solid state and it sounds fantastic. Great playabilty and tone. A really good deal!

BUY IT

Comments about Fender Deluxe Blackout Telecaster Electric Guitar:

If you want the versatility of a strat, but don't want to look like everyone else or appreciate the tele tone better buy this guitar. You can get amazing tonal variations from that extra pickup they threw in the middle. I am very picky about my guitars. When I bought this I was really in the market for a fender guitar, but I hate the tele tone and wanted a little more variation out of my guitar for melodic parts. It was a tossup between the jag and this tele. I picked the tele because of the fixed/non-floating bridge (and it was cheaper with the same good tone) I've been playing this guitar 4 months now and I use it on everything. It is the best guitar for variable music I have ever played.

Highly recomended

By Joshua L

Comments about Fender Deluxe Blackout Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I love this guitar! It plays fast and sounds very good. The stratomatic 5 way switch really keeps you interested because of the variations of tone and volume.
