    Comments about Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    Bought this for my collection, enjoy it looks-finish/sounds/feels/plays great. The neck is CHUNKIER than most. The single ply pick guard, buy another if you play often not sure of the durability of that but that is part of the "nostalgia" I guess.
    The pick ups are noticeably different than my Tele Deluxe N/3. I get more warmth from the AV52 pups.

      Comments about Fender American Vintage '52 Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      Outstanding workmanship! With the new finish, and fat neck, the revised '52 Tele is very similar to the famed Custom Shop Nocaster. The new neck pickup is killer - more articulate but still Tele (not like the "Twisted Tele" neck pickup that sounds like a Strat). The new bridge pup is essentially the same as before... classic Tele! This guitar has got tone for days, but thats a good thing 'cause the neck is so comfy you'll never want to put it down.

      The hardware is very very nice. Nitro finish is top notch, and the colour is bang on. The wiring harness is top quality with awesome pots + caps, and cloth pushback wiring. The early 50s switch tip is a nice touch, as is the bakelite guard. The G&G case, leather strap, and case candy are all very nice as well.

      My only issue is the incorrect 12th fret dot spacing, which is '53 style not '52. Didn't stop me from buying it tho.
