I got this guitar brand new about 9 months ago, and I got it relatively cheap, but it needed a lot of work. The intonation was off, the truss rod was way too tight, just about everything else was loose, and the fretboard cracked 3 months after I got it (fixed by Fender through warranty). If you do buy it, take a screwdriver and allen wrench to it right away. The tone of the guitar is great, it looks fantastic (I own the Cobalt Blue) and it stays in tune for days without being played. This is the only guitar I own currently, so I dont have much to compare it to. But I get compliments all the time on it.
It's an extremely versatile guitar, I also have a Strat and a Telecaster, but the Deluxe is my favorite of the three, It's got a great neck and the tone is excellent.
I've been playing my Tele HH FMT for about 2 years now. The good things about it: It's pretty, the finish is very nice, it plays well (I like the neck), it has a good beefy neck single-coil sound and a decent bridge single-coil tele sound. The bad things about it: Those are the only two really good sounds. The mid position sucks whether the coil tap is in or out, it's very phasey and hollow-sounding. The humbuckers, when used as humbuckers, aren't that fabulous--too beefy in the neck position and too scratchy in the bridge position. The hardware is poorly installed, I had to go back and tighten/loctite every knob, switch, and jack on the guitar. I also had to glue/retighten and the strap buttons.I am planning to sell this guitar and buy one of the PRS SE series guitars.
This guitar has the sweetest tone and sound I have ever played. It beats the pants off my custom Les Paul. I have been searching for this sound for 5 years and I have finally found it.
You want quite recording guitar, powerful.. here it is. You want the old Telecaster sound, hit the S1 button. Beautiful to look at. The finger board is polish a lot more the Standard Tele's and Strats for that matter.
