Comments about Fender Custom Shop Custom Deluxe Telecaster Electric Guitar:
I have never been a fan of Fender guitars. I have always had Gibsons in the past(many Les Pauls, flying V, ES-330, Explorer)I purchased a Mexi Strat for my son for his first guitar and was not impressed. The guitar I have been playing for a while is a Steinberger which I love but it has some limitations. I started to look for a guitar that was more versatile. Somehow I came up with the Telecaster. As I looked around to educate myself on all the different models, I was still not impressed. I happened into a local shop that had many of the same models I had seen before and relayed that to the salesman. At this point, he showed me a couple of custom shop models, one with a rosewood neck and one with maple. I really preferred the maple. One, it had a more playable feel and secondly the flame finish was spectacular. At this point he hands me a third example with a maple neck and an aged cherry sunburst finish. I sat ane played it for an hour, missed a business meeting, and needless to say, I did not leave that guitar behind. It is stunningly beautiful and I would say of all the guitars I have owned over the years it is now my favorite. I am playing it through a 50 watt Marshall half stack that has a "classic" gain channel that gives a very rich clean tone. Every chance I get, I have that guitar in my hands.
