Arrived on Tuesday. I have never spent this much money on anything, But Needless to say I'm Glad I did



Fender American standard Telecaster
2 tone sunburst
Ash Body
Maple Neck

Was set up pretty nice straight out of the box. Considering I've been playing a super slim Ibanez for the last 2 or 3 years it felt amazing. The neck is chunkier than what i'm used to but I think I actually like it better that way.

Guitar is nice and light, looks beautiful and plays like a dream. It's my first Maple neck, and i've been hearing mixed opinions about them but it suits me great. Good grip, but you can move around when you need to.

Acoustic it's bright and spanky, with decent volume and a lovely full tone. Plugged in it's every bit as tasty, with plenty of spank, but a nice rounded tone in the bottom too. The single coils aren't as noisy as I was expecting which is great.

The string through body is an absolute breath of fresh air. I'm so sick of tremelos now. I'm embracing solid tuning stabilty with both arms!

Long story short, I love this guitar. Recommend it to anyone who wants a no bullshit guitar. Simple, yet beautiful from all angles, visual, aural (it even smells fantastic). Goes great with my recently purchased Ts9 too. Cost me €1200 but honestly I would pay it again! I'll add a few more pics at a later date perhaps

Oh, and for resonance . . . smack an open A chord and hold the body and see if it vibrates like a middle-aged woman's best friend.

yep, the hang tags also all say "strat" no matter what model it is. my local shop has a shed load of new fenders in stock that all have stratocaster labels. i couldn't possibly know why fender have started doing this

anyways, HNGD! the american standard teles are great, they've usually got a very well balanced tone that offers the perfect blend of warmth and bite. teles are absolutely necessary and everyone should have at least one

it's a sticker and a hang tag, i don't think it could really save much time or money tbh, but i guess it's not important at all. i'd rather them cut back on things like that than cut back on the quality of the guitars

Can't believe I didn't notice that!!! I removed the sticker more or less straight away. filth.

Teles are definitely the bomb.
Someday I might even buy a second!

If they only have to print labels for one model (strat), that would save money to just slap these labels on to every fender...

Nice burst. I'm proud to say a Tele is next on my hit list as well, and this is making me want one more. Happy NGD man.
