    I have owned mine since 2000 or 2001 (somewhere in that time frame) I think I got it the first year it was offered. I had problems with the Fishman on the G string with a buzz that sounded like the action was too low. I brought it back & they tried to fix it and could not so they offered me a whole new guitar & I took it. It still has the same problem but it is not nearly as bad, it helped it when I went to heavier strings, which I use anyway so it wasn't a problem for me. Having said all that, I love this guitar & would buy it again, though I would probably get the one without the Fishman cause the sound of that is not really useful to me. I use this guitar alot for recording and have developed my own sound with it as a mainstay. The hardware on mine is good, perhaps the earlier models had better, or perhaps I am just not cosmetically aware as others may be. I do know I like the controls & the setup and I have had no problems with it. I did shield the cavity to quiet the pickups, which I can't figure out why Fender does not do this because the noise on the pickups is nat acceptable otherwise. If I lost this guitar for whatever reason, I would replace it with the same. Highly recommended Tele unless you are vintage twang, then you would want a different model.

    I've had to return my power tele twice for repairs on the soundboard piece inside the guitar. When this guitar works as it should, I really do enjoy it. I'm sort of leary of it now, after having the problems twice. (The volume just starts to get more faint, and eventually there is no sound, other than hum from the amp.) The repairman has assured me that it is not anything that I have done that has caused the problem. He has stated that the soundboard pieces have been defective. Hopefully three is a charm in this case.

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I play in two cover bands, mostly classic rock. I've always wanted to be able to switch quickly between electric and acoustic sound without having to change guitar and without having to deal with acoustic guitar feedback. This Power Tele guitar is THE answer to my need.

      It's very versatile with 3 electric pickups plus the finish is very good, no buzz, all perfect. The pickups are quite silent - I am quite surprised about that as I expected pickups in MiM Fender's would be more noisy that USA made Fenders, it's not the case.

      To get a good acoustic sound, the acoustic jack MUST be plugged into an acoustic amp or a PA - otherwise, it's not worth it, and if you don't plan to do so, don't buy this guitar, you will be disappointed by the acoustic sound you will get (I have a great Mesa tube amp, and those are not made for acoustic sound amplification and they don't have a tweeter so...).

      I find the Fishman pickup does a great job on the 4 high strings (e, B, A, D) but the acoustic sound isn't as good on the low A and E strings, but it's still good enough to play live - nobody will notice in band situation. I will try to see if different kind of strings could help to improve that.

      Overall, I strongly recommend this guitar if you play in a band and need the kind of flexibility that this guitar offer.

      Modified for Slide.

      By Unknown Legend

      from East Texas

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I picked up one of these in 1999 to setup for slide playing, The tuners and bridge on them weren't as nice as the new ones so it didn't bother me at all to replace them with Sperzel locking tuners and a Hipshot Trilogy bridge that allows quick easy on stage tuning of the open type that I use. The tone and sustain is amazing and it is one guitar that I don't plan on parting with due to its versatility, sound and looks.

      Versatility/Tone

      By Nightsongs

      from Mac, Oregon

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      A friend who was a Fender dealer found a new/old stock Nashville Power Deluxe in their storage. It was a 1999 that had never been used, still had the pickguard plastic, etc.I'm a Line 6 guy, but missed my old Tele's so I bought it.After having the pots, power chip, electronic stuff replaced (went bad after all that time alone), and the intonation/action set up, I really love it now. Not as great as my Variax 600, but for all the barre chords I play, it's a little more comfortable. Playing thru a Vetta 2, I can adjust the piezo sound nicely.

      Great Guitar!!

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I've had the guitar for about a year now and I like it more and more all the time. The Sound, the Intonation, the Look, the Action--all so True. I use it with a Roland JC and a Boss GT-10. I just love all the tones I get out of it. It is so clean and Present. I don't get a bad metal sound out of the rig, too.

      BUY IT!!!

      By FenderRocks!

      from Boston, MA

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      this telecaster beyond amazing, the temex pickups are perfect for that tele sound and the pickup in the middle for that stratty middy sound is great as well. the quality of this guitar is very giid fri the price you get the qualit of expensive guitars n this affordable one. Ive read that some people hvent quite yet experienced the power of the fishman piezo. An advice for this would be to run it directly to a DI Box or Mixer with some chorus/reverb or if you use a modelling processor like the pod you should bypass all of the modelling capabilities in order to get the max out of the piezo system if you dont you wont get the results expected.I gave it 4.5 on features because i think that it should b very convenient to have a switch which changes between ceramic and piezo operation because it ould save time when performing live instead of having to lower ceramic volume and raising piezo volume to get that piezo sound.Another coment would be that i recommend to change to noiseless or emg pickups in order to eliminate the hum that they produce because that can cause a headache if youre using a genuine tube amp.other than that it is an amazing well-rounded versatile and affordable guitar that you have to buy

      Nashville Power Tele Offers Flexibility

      By Waylon Van Halen

      from Shelbyville, IL

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I purchased a used Nashville Power Tele over three years ago and done some minor mods to it - Schaller Locking Tuners, White Pearl Pickguard & Five-Two Bridge Pickup. Guitar is very versatile. Don't use the power bridge much, but more lately. Adds nice body to sound. Locking tuners really help tuning. Overall quality is very good for MIM.

      Excellent Mexi Tele

      By fender469

      from Grand Rapids, MI

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      Purchase a black w/tortoise version about a year ago and it's quickly become my main Tele. I'm a big Tele fan and have about 10 total, and this guitar easily matches the quality of many USA made Teles. The fit and finish is a little rough in some places, but not where it matters. Plus, the Fishman power bridge rocks, and in conjunction with a good acoustic simulator pedal really gives you some interesting sound/tone options.

      Nashville Tele

      By No One Important

      from Live Oak, FL

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      When I first read about this guitar, I thought it would be a nice versitile guitar that would be a good companion to my ever-eveolving tastes. When I surfed through this site and saw that they had a blem available, I couldn't resist, so I got it for my birthday. When it came, I was pretty impressed with the case, nothing fancy, just exactly what I need. The case candy included a manual, authenticity tag (probably for shop owners to put on), a bumper sticker which I'll stick on my car when I finally get one, and a very useful stereo cord which I'll mention later. When I opened up the case it looked very new, and I'm almost convinced that this blem was either a broken pickup or some other electronical problem that I wouldn't notice. So it looked brand new, still had the plastic over the pickguard, no smudges on the pickups or any other chrome parts. When I plugged it in I was scared to death because I had my amp on high gain while the Fishman bridge was on and it sounded muddy. I said to myself "man I'm gonna have to return this." But after a quick look at the manual I tweeked it and it sounded great! So ever since then it's been very good to me.Now here's what I think about the guitar itself.Pickups - The pickups aren't as hot or twangy as I'd like. I think they're perfect for someone who doesn't quite know what they want soundwise though. If the pickups were liek SCNs or Vintage Noiseless pickups, the cost would be way up there, so that's still ok. The fishman power bridge acts differantly to every amp, but on a stage, I doubt anyone could tell teh difference beween this machine and an acoustic. That's a plus because ethen you wouldn't have to change guitars as much.Tuners - I must've gotten mine after they upgraded the tuners or something because I'm hearing that the tuners on this model stink, well mine don't. The tuners on this instrument are very good, I only have to tune it every three days or so, but switching them out for Schallers is still agood idea for someone who's on stage and needs to use it for long periods of time.Cosmetics - I got the one in two color sunburst, or brown sunburst, can't tell which, but those guys over in Ensenada really did a good job. (The body is bookmatched by the way!) The paint job is absolutely beautiful, and the control switches look great. The bridge does look a little tacky, I think it really pushes for a modern look over the tele vibe which I'd rather have, but doesn't really matterall that much. The rosewood fingerboard looks amzing, but the dot inlays look very cheap up close, they almost look painted, but they're just very white plastic. Let me tell you one thing though, I couldn't stand the tortoise pickguard on this thing. It looks aweful! The white pickup in the middle caught way too much attention and it really clashed with the paint job. So I changed it out for a nice white/black/white pickguard and it looks great! Real tele-like. From far away no one could tell the differance! So if you don't like the pickguardon this thing, always know that most every part on an electric guitar (especially Fenders) are very easy to replace, and if something doesn't look right, change it!Over all, I wouldn't recomend this as a studio guitar, but for a traveling musician, or one with a small pocketbook, this is a good guitar to get because it's just so versitile and beautiful.

      Good versitile machine

      By No One Important

      from Live Oak, FL

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Power Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I've owned my new tele for more than a month now. It's a good versitile instrument with lots of possibilities. I upped on features and lowered on quality because....1. It has 3 pickups, the power bridge, and good cosmetics, so that part is good.2. The pickups aren't the best, but they're perfect for someone who doesn't know much about guitar playing yet. These pups don't have enough twang, and they don't have enough output for distortion. Once I get enough money, I'm going to change them out for a new set, but I'll keep the pickups for another guitar, because they'd still be an upgrade to someone.Regarding the power bridge, I like it. It can really sound good with the right amp. It doesn't sound that great only becaus ewhen you're playing an acoustic, you can feel the sound a whole lot more. If you had this thing on stage, I doubt you could tell the differance. Overall nice guitar, but there's no way on this earth that I'd pay list price for it. I bought it as a blem, and I think I paid the right price for it.
