    Great Tele

    By Rebelhoss

    from Delmont, PA

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    The overall feel of this guitar is great. Sounds just like a Tele should. The neck is so good, I wish I could have this neck on my other 3 Teles. I think it is better made, better sounding, and better looking than the American Standard. Well worth the extra cash.
    It's a Telecaster, not much to it, but what's there is all ya need.
    Workmanship is beautiful. Stunning looking guitar. I have the sunburst. Feels great. Well made.The binding is awesome.
    It's pricey, but I think it's worth it.

    Fender American Vintage Series "62 Telecaster

    By Robert Horbett

    from Hamburg, NY

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    Overall, the whole process from when I ordered it to when I received it and looked at it was fantastic. Jordan (the sales rep) was very helpfull with the order.
    The guitar came in less then a week and was in brand new condition. The finish is flawless, the neck is straight and I only had to do a minor adjustments on the string height and intonation. I'm very happy with the guitar and MusciansFriend. I ordered from them in the past and never had a problem. I'm sure that that I will order from them in the near future. Also, the rosewood fretboard is dark just the way I like it. It has a different feel to it.
    Bobsdurango!
    The Quality of the guitar is excellent (5 stars).
    I would rate the price that I paid excellent. I lucked out and purchased it when they were running a sale,

    What Leo fender had in mind.

    By Retroman

    from Long Island, NY

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    This 1962 replica, which I have in surf green, is a magnificent instrument. It is lightweight, perfectly balanced and so easy to play. I had the switching converted to the conventional Tele 3 way switching so I can engage both pickups in the middle position. What sound! What distinctive twangy tone! I'm sure this is what Leo Fender wanted his Teles to sound like. Strats are great,I have the '62 counterpart, but when I play this Tele, I feel it in my soul. Not inexpensive, but in my opinion superior to the American Deluxe Tele, because of the superior pickups.

    This guitar is totally excellent. Made some minor bridge adjustments and that's it. Plays and sounds like a dream. The C neck is so comfy. Looks and sounds great. I'm so happy I own it. Perfection.

    FINALLY MINE!!!!!!

    By telehappy

    from Tacoma, WA

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    After years of lusting, finally saved enough and now it's mine. Much better than the '52 I used to have - more unique. I'll get the wiring redone to modern specs, but that's quick and easy. Set up perfect out of box/case and awesome - I mean awesome craftsmanship. If you have the money and you're wondering about buying, just do it. You will not be sorry you did. Mine's sunburst, but they look great in all the colors available.

    By Mr. Breeze

    from Hanford, CA

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    Perfect neck, hand shaped frets, ultimate feel, beauitful look and excellent playability. Installed Fender CNS pickups, 4-way switch (for that humbucker value) and constant volume pot resistor. settings for warm neck, country bridge, duel bell tones and the magnetic reverse humbucker. With a set of Fender brass saddles, you have it ALL!

    Tone to die for.

    By Guitarzan-xIpmB

    from Laguna Beach, CA

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    This is the cake for Tele fans. Don't confuse yourself by trying to compare this to a Strat or Gibson, these guitars are aimed at the Tele player who already knows what he is looking for and why. After playing several different Tele models, this one took me to the floor with its round fat tone. Twang and snap from the vintage frets - jumbo fret Teles can't do that (unless you use 9s). Awesome bass response and extremely smooth. The rosewood neck and the vintage pickups are the bomb. Breaks up nicely with overdrive and loves pedals. Silly wiring needs to be redone, to be true to the original 1 position is stripped of the highs, and the middle pos is the neck alone with no combined pickup switch setting. Easy and quick fix (they supply the diagram and necesary cap). Vintage size frets, fretwork, setup and intonation was perfect (as much as the vintage saddles allow). The vintage pickups in this '62 are not noiseless but have a much richer tone than the SCN noiseless pickups in my American Deluxe. If forced to choose I'd keep the '62.

    A must have for the Tele Freak!

    By tlecstr

    from Bakersfield, Ca

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    I love this guitar. Raw and unforgiving just as a Tele should be. Plenty of bite on that bridge pu, however, it does need to be re-wired. I bought the 3 color sun burst,...what a classy looking axe!

    Real Tele Sound

    By TonyW

    from Richmond Va

    Comments about Fender American Vintage Series '62 Telecaster Custom Electric Guitar:

    This is my third tele. I gave it a ten for features because it is a reissue true to the original. With that said I want to replace the 3 barrel saddle bridge for a six barrel saddle bridge because the intonation is finicky and it does not keep a tune half as good as my old american deluxe.When it comes to sound and playability it blows away everything! The American Deluxe does not sound half as good as this axe. I do not know how fender makes these custom pickups, but they are the best I have heard. I play it through a blues deluxe reissue and it is the best sound I have ever had. Sounds awesome clean and dirty. The double binding and the mint green pick guard give it a unique, elegant, but simple look.
