Fender: '72 Telecaster Deluxe

Price paid: $ 570

Sound — 10
The sound is unique, because it combines alder body with humbucker pickups. The sound is very different from the guitar that has a humbucker pickup, it's not as thick as a Gibson, not as thin as standard telecaster. I used to play with Standard Telecaster and Hagstrom Super Swede.

Overall Impression — 10
Overall, this guitar is my main guitar, I don't need backup guitar. I love this guitar so much, it's combined Tele - Strat - Les Paul style. If it stolen definitely I'll kick the ass who stolen this guitar. I don't like to compare all of my guitar, this is has different style, love it!

Reliability & Durability — 10
I only use it for practice in the studio alone, I have never used it for gigs events (next month maybe). I change the strap button with Dunlop strap lock, it's not because the original strap button is bad or something, it's because all my guitars use strap lock (safety first).

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
When I got this guitar it has 0.9-0.42 strings, I changes to a thicker strings (0.10-0.46). Pickup can't be adjusted, because this is almost like a p-90 pickup. For neck adjustment it is very very simple because it has Bullet truss rod. I don't have a negative point for this guitar because when I got this the condition is perfect, thx God.

I recently bought this guitar from my friend. Mine is fsr '72 Telecaster Deluxe with natural color. Made in Mexico, built in 2009 it has 1 piece alder body, maple neck with big 70s Stratocaster headstock with polyester. The rest is the same as a standard 72 Telecaster deluxe.
