    Comments about Fender Classic Player Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar With Tremolo:

    This guitar sounds great. It has that cool, spongey, spanky Fender sound even though it is humbucking, nice and round, and not harsh like some teles and strats. I think they are a nice low-output humbucker, very toneful. The glossy neck is fun, I know the satin and oil finish necks are sexy, but I love this glossy neck and board. And the shape is great! My only problems are (1)the control layout is bad for a guy like me who rides the volume control, and (2)the tremolo block threaded hole is a little crooked and the trem arm won't swing free without alot of play. I am giving it 5 stars anyway, because in this price range, I do not expect really good hardware.

    Flexible, Durable, All-Around Great Guitar

    By MattC1984

    from Denver, CO

    Comments about Fender Classic Player Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar With Tremolo:

    Not perfect, but pretty good overall. Bear in mind that you'll probably need to sink some money into a decent, professional set up.
    Full disclosure, I gave up on the tremolo after six months of owning this guitar. I've never been a big whammy bar user, and I don't like Strat-styled tremolo systems. So, I'm not going to comment on the tremolo because: (a) I never really used it; (b) I wasn't likely to like it to begin with; and (c) this is still an awesome guitar even if you block out the tremolo and play it hardtail.

    My take on this was that basically, Fender was trying to build a Les Paul on a Telecaster body. The Wide Range Humbuckers don't quite sound like proper humbuckers, and you're not going to get Les Paul-like sustain, especially with the tremolo. Nonetheless, the guitar is supremely flexible. You're not going to get full on 'bucker saturation, and you're not going to get single-coil screams. But you're still going to get a really broad and versatile set of tones that are incredibly useable. Every time I plug this guitar in, I tweak something and I find a new tonal option.

    The guitar plays well with effects pedals. The WRHs are not as good as originals, but they're pretty close (and for the price, I'm not complaining). Like most reissue electronics, where they fail to have all of idiosyncracies of the originals, they still have plenty of their own charms and nuances.
    It is a MIM, but it has the quality and durability you would expect from a US made Fender. Because of the tremolo, you're probably going to need a professional set up. The vintage "F-Style" tuners kind of suck. I get really annoyed by tuners, so I opted to replace the stock "reissue" ones with Schaller locking tuners. Not a necessity, but I think it improved the quality of the guitar immensley.
    In hind sight, I would have saved some dough and gone for the non-tremolo version. But that's only because I don't really use the tremolo. For the range of tones you can get out of this guitar and the fact that it is really durable. (Seriously, throw it acorss the stage, go pick it up, and keep playing...) it is worth the money.

    Comments about Fender Classic Player Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar With Tremolo:

    I've played this guitar a pile and I would say that overall, I would buy another if I had the need for one. Fun clash between three massively popular guitar styles, and also a cool "trainer" guitar to get someone used to transitioning from a Strat, Les Paul or Tele to the others if one of them is all you've known.
    I love having a telecaster with factory-standard humbuckers! They are clear and excellent clean or with distortion. The knobs are well laid-out, though I sometimes found that they got in the way while winding the tremolo arm on (I'm a new whammy bar user, so I may not be "donig it right"). The neck is slick - you can play virtually anything on it. The ONLY thing I regret with this guitar is the lack of locking tuners. My other electric is a classic-style tele that I have never had tuning issues with, but the tremolo bridge on this one makes retuning more constant. Perhaps this is an upgrade Fender would consider in the future...

    Strat neck, Tele body, Les Paul electronics and controls - a masterful hybrid!
    I have a Mexican model, and I really don't know if I would care what the American version feels/sounds like. This guitar plays like a dream (factory .009 strings), and only the aforementioned lack of locking tuners keep me from really giving this category a 10.
    Considering the build quality and price, I think the value is perfect. You're not going to be able to just shell out a little and get this, but you get what you pay for sometimes. That said, this doesn't cost you thousands and thousands, and it is a quality instrument.

    the perfect combination

    By telefied

    from montgomery, alabama

    Comments about Fender Classic Player Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar With Tremolo:

    i love teles, but don't get me wrong, most of us tele players would love a tele with a tremolo. my last experience with a tele was not too great. it had intonation problems all over the place all the time. we would fix it up and a week later we'd have to fix it again, then we figured out it was a really really good tele knock off. it had the fender made in u.s.a logo on the headstock and everything. i played a real tele right next to it and could hardly tell a difference (besides intonation) but i tell you it played like a really tele neck and all. that started me on the tele fever. i sold my old tele to buy a real one and came across this. these humbuckers are the clearest humbuckers i've ever heard. i love it. the neck is like butter and the tremelo is awesome. i love it. this is an awesome over all guitar.
