A unique combination of Tele style and tone with an additional Strat pickup thrown in for extra versatility.

This array, combined with five-way Strat-o-Tone switching, makes it one of the most versatile Telecaster models Fender makes. Features include ash (Amber, Honey Blonde) or alder (Candy Apple Red, Brown Sunburst) body, maple or rosewood fingerboard with medium jumbo frets, brown shell pickguard, vintage-style tuners and vintage-style six-saddle bridge.

    OK, first the good part; this axe plays very well if you like a steep 9.5 radius. The frets are reasonably well-dressed and polished with reasonably well-trimmed ends, not to say there isn't room for improvement here with this or any other production guitar. The Tex Mex Tele pickups, along with the single Tex Mex Strat center pup and 5 way switch sound bright & snappy with a bit more mid howl than you might expect from a regular Tele. This is perfect for tones that mimic early Led Zeppelin, which was exacly what I was looking for. Tuned into open G, I can get the exact sounds heard on the first 3 LZ albums, all of which were recorded with Page's old beat-up Telecaster. This is a Tele on steroids...plenty of clean bright snap for a country picker and lots of growl available for a heavy/blues-rock tone for Zep,The Who, et al. Very inspiring if you're into this type of music.

    I would have given this guitar a much better over-all rating if not for the hardware. I'm frustrated when they insist on putting "vintage-style" hardware on a modern axe in order to satisfy a 'fad'. The six-saddle ashtray style bridge doesn't allow for the strings to pull straight behind the saddles, forcing the strings into the tension springs on the base of the saddles, making them both all cockeyed and misaligned. It might have been better with a true vintage 3-saddle set up, but IMHO, unless you're conserving an actual vintage instrument and need it to be correct, the old ones lack mass, and if you want an accurate set up for a player's axe, you need a modern tele style bridge. I replaced this one with a high-quality tele bridge from G*t*h. As far as the tuners go, these are old school design, probably mid-grade Pings, and it takes extra effort to get a new set of strings seated. They hold OK once thats done, but I would prefer a nice set of Schallers. Problem here is that you can't put on Schallers, Grovers, Sperzels or any other high quality modern tuners because the holes in the headstock will only accept "vintage" (9mm) ferrules. Have to drill it out. I may bite the bullet and just drill it, but I'm reluctant to do this...we'll see. I'd really rather have a nicer set of tuners with more mass to them.

    As an additional note, I specifically went for the ash body for the tone, but can only get this with the honey-blond finish; the finish isn't too bad, actually, but I would have preferred the classic butterscotch...that would be a nice option in ash.
    I'm going a bit neutral on the features here; I really like the Tex-Mex pups with the reverse strat pup in the middle and the 5-way switch. I also very much dislike the cheesy "vintage-style" bridge and tuners.
    Nice quality build and finish...except for the bridge and tuners.
    Lot of guitar for the money, all things considered.

    On Thursday, 10/4/07 I received my new Tele. On Friday, 10/5 I sent it back. The bridge was off center to where the top string, as I neared the pickups, was at the edge of the fret board. When I caught the top string above the 12th fret, with my thumb, it would go above the fret. I contacted Fender - they suggested that I take the guitar to an authorized service center. Fortunately there is one near by - they said the guitar should be returned. The repair would have required filling and re-drilling holes in the body. The good side is that this guitar has tones from "bone Tele" to reminding me of a 62 Jazzmaster I once owned,(and wish I still did). I was impressed enough with the tone of the guitar that I ordered another one (same everything, sunburst w/maple fretboard) instead of asking for a refund. This company has been very responsive to my plight for which I am grateful. When I receive my replacement, I will update my review.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    Last year I got a new American Deluxe Telecaster, with the N3 PUs. It's a fine instrument, but it lacks the Tele twang.
    I came across this MIM Tele and I was really surprised by not only the sound, but also the fit and finish. The guitar I was trying out had a bit of trouble staying in tune, and I thought it could benefit from a new Gotoh bridge and better tuners. So, I ordered a Delux Nashville Tele with the intention of making those changes. To my surprise, I am quite happy with the guitar I received, as is. Maybe I'll swap out the bridge somewhere down the road, but for now, there isn't any pressing reason to do so.
    It is a really nice instrument at a very reasonable price.

        I got this as a Blem , someone had dropped it and put a serious ding to the body by the jack plate, It doesn't affect the play ability or tone of the guitar one bit. It's on the back side of the bout, no one can see it. The guitar was setup good everything was ok and just as Musicians Friend said it was, and the best thing was the price ! ! MF is my go to source !

        Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        received the Blond which i ordered a week + ago. i didnt write a review until i had time to check it out. the packaging was great and shipping was good. no blemishes were found, the neck is straight no fret buzz, intonation was set surprisingly well. factory strings feel ok and hold tune acceptable for new strings. the ONLY 2 issues i have is the tone frequency curve doesn't allow for much variation in actual tone. second, the five way is nice, however, should be configured to separate the tele from the strat. and yes the pickups are NOISY. i will be doing a little rewiring for my own taste. All in all, this is a JOY to play and will be in use for a long time. the Blond should be called light butterscotch. still a nice color with the maple neck.

          I just purchased my Nashville Tele about 2 weeks ago. I'm a fender Strat man and have never liked the bright sound of the Tele but after coming across this Nashville Tele with the 3 pickups and a Strat pickup in the middle and with the 5 way switch I thought I'd give this one a try . It was way more then I had excepted .. This is the first Tele that I have played that I actually like ( love ) the tone !!! It's a beautiful guitar !! The only thing that I done to it to make it play perfect to me was just lower the strings a little more ! This thing plays great !!! Sounds great !! I love the tone !!! I compare it right up there to my American made Strat !!! Happy Happy Happy !!!

            The guitars Fender is producing these last years are the best ever. This versatile tele for under six hundred is amazing bang for the buck. It's got my classic player strat sitting in the case currently.
            PS I've owned many Fenders over the years including a 1962 Strat back in the 70s and just want to go on record that I love the Mexican made Fenders and don't get the stigma from the gear snobs.

            I can't put it down. I play it around the house, in the studio and when I go out. Fantastic tone. I love the finish on the neck, smooth and fast. The frets are very well done. The only problem when I received it was the saddle for the first string was not set up correctly. One leg was longer than the other. a 30 second fix and it's been played every day since. Fender had a great idea melding the tele tone with a touch of strat in the middle pick-up. Great guitar!!!

                Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

                I bought one of these about 4 months ago. Quality seems solid, finish is nice (I got the red), and the neck feels good. The action is high for my taste but some would say it's fine. I adjusted my bridge which helped a lot, but I couldn't go as low as I wanted without fret buzz, so a professional setup might be needed. Clean sound is very nice, but if you want to get down and dirty, you'd better get yourself a Les Paul. This guitar would be a poor choice for hard rock or metal, but hey, Telecasters aren't exactly designed for that anyway so that's no shock. If you want a guitar that feels good in your hands and has good clean classic Fender tone, this one is great for the money. The addition of the Stratocaster pickup in the middle adds nicely to the array of available sounds, as it does actually provide sound very similar to a Strat at about the 2 or 3 position.

                I have owned over 10 Fender guitars, up until recently they have all been American only. There was a time where I could see and feel the difference between an American and a Mexican guitar. Well that now is not the case. The Mexican guitars now I think are just as good. They have a fantastic feel, great sound, fantastic looking too I might add. I love them and I love this guitar. I have the blonde ash body. If you ever snubbed anything but American guitars you might want to rethink that. I would be proud to play this anywhere and now one of my favorites. Since owning this, I have purchased two other Fender Mexican guitars, now I have a mix of American and Mexican telecasters and strats and unless the pickups are changed, you cannot tell which is which. If your considering this guitar, get it and you will be shocked on how beautiful it is and the feel is a dead on Fender feel.
                Peace,
                Peter.
