The Facts on The FSR tele

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

First letsa get some facts right. It does not have Tex-Mex pickups, it has alnico V pickups which are known for being hot and much more powerful than the Mexican Strats that cone equiped with a ceramic (much less power) magnet pickup. One great reason for getting even a standard tele. Alnico pickups are hotter and much more versatile than the ceramic magnet pickup. (I've been playing for over 30 years and these are my opinions and experiences) Thes pickups are a real killer in this tele and will open a ton of doors musically.Second the Ash body as a quality to the sound that alder and poplar can't come close to comparing too. The woodgrain is a killer on this axe and the maple neck adds to the nice bite of the alnico pic. All in all this guitar is an absolute steal for the price and one of the best buys in any Fender period. I can't see them making these much longe at this price point. This is a fantastic bang for the buck!

Super Telecaster!

By Fiberpro

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

I bought this Telecaster with the intention of replacing the bridge pickup with a Seymour Duncan lil '59 because I hate regular telecaster bridge tone and I love PAF tone in the bridge. Well, when I received it, I played it before ordering a new pickup. I was totally amazed by the Tex-Mex pickups in this thing. The pickups smoke! The neck pickup is Strat hot and the bridge has the greatest single-coil tone that I have heard from Fender stock Telecaster pickups. It is not twangy like a vintage Telecaster, it is hot, almost like a P-90. I love this thing. The finish is fantastic, the frets are smooth and slick, the neck is straight and well dressed, and I love the Ash natural finish body. It looks like a 50's Telecaster, but with hot pickups. Everyone that sees it wants it and when they hear it, they tell me that it sounds better than an American Standard or even an American Deluxe---it is that good! Buy it today before they quit making these!

Nice for the price

By zooty

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

This is a really nice looking guitar. It is set up right and very easy to play. It has a good tone and low action and really plays nice, better than some guitars I have played that cost 3 times as much. I prefer the natural wood look and the grain and finish is really nice. I have some high dollar guitars and play this one more than them. One of my all time favorites.

Love this guitar

By WHawk

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

I bought a Japanese Fender in 1989 & loved it.Then I gave it to my son. Then when I saw this natural American made one It was love at first sight. I could not afford it so when I saw this Mexican made one, I tried it & fell in love although I did spend extra dollars on a black pick guard..
Good classic Fender feel & sound.

Great Guitar

By TheGuitarist365

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

I got this guitar last november. It was a 2007. I love this guitar still 8 months later. Great action, consistent. I have not yet had a problem. I really only have one complaint The original bridge is junky. Spend 40 bucks and throw in a vintage-style, brass 3-saddle bridge. It took the the tone from brittle and weak to strong and punchy. You can't play that good tele country without a new bridge. I am considering replacing the pickups, but for now it is a great-sounding, versatile, dependable guitar.

Amazing Tele

By Teleman

from Undisclosed

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

I am giving this 4 stars, but for the price it is really a five plus. This guitar is SWEET and has become my ax of choice. I also own an acoustic and a MIM Strat. The Strat is very versitile but cannot get that classic Tele tone, especially playing clean or looking for that twang. I put it up against a custom ash tele, and the difference was minimal. I am sure changing out the stock pick-ups would do the trick, although the stock pick-up are good except maybe for the most discrinimating ear, and that would just be a matter of preference. The build is flawless, silky smooth neck, no fret spread like you hear about on some MIM (my Strat had a bit). It was ready to play right out of the box. The only issues, occasional pick-up buzz (minor) that goes away anytime you touch a string, what do you want for stock single pick-ups, and would have like to see this come with the classic black pick guard, but not a deal breaker. Great Tele platform, change out the pick-ups and guard and you have a classic that would rival the best of them.

jelly tele

By jim

from marlboro ma.

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

been playing guitar for over 50 years started with a fender tele 1963,this tele with a little ajusting here and there has become my number 1 axe,the action is so low you just have to look at the guitar and she plays,the bridge could be a little bit more refined and the nut replaced and you will play like the wind. great, old, vintage, tele sounds, rock and country riffs are so cool on this you can`t seem to put her down, hey, not my old tele but if stolen or lost, i`d buy this one in a minute. buy one, trust me.

Great Guitar

By Don -fWhco

from Bogue Chitto, Mississippi

Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar Ash:

Bought my son this guitar as an upgrade from his Squier Tele.The pickups are much clearer with less buzz. The guitar looks amazing even the brown pick guard looks better than we thought. If your looking for a good telecaster and don't want to spend a fortune this is the guitar to buy.
