Includes a gig bag.

    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.

    Overall the guitar is great; however, the one I purchased just wasn't in top shape. The last 12 frets had oxidation on them and were turning to a gold/rust color right out of the package, and the nut wasn't grooved enough to hold the strings in place. Every time I would bend the E, B, G strings, they would slide up the nut and make a horrible noise. Definitely poor craftsmanship to say the least. The tex-mex pickups provide quality sound, but the aesthetics were lacking something major. Sending it back for a refund.

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      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.

          Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

          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.

          Fantastic Maple Neck W/ Maple Fingerboard,Nice Frets & Body Finish .. mine is Brown SunBurst
          The Neck & Bridge Tex Mex Pups Sound Very Good, Adjust Polepieces on Center Pup "Flat" or Slighty Staggered for a better Vintage Tone, with the the 6 Saddle Bridge the B & E Strings Vibrate / Buzz .. I Upgraded to a 3 Brass Saddle Bridge Fixed the Issue I purchased mine on Sept 2013 I Swapped the Neck & Middle Pup Positions on the 5 Way Switch for the Traditional Bridge & Neck Combo the Neck Pup Alone is Good Enough for nice Bass Tones on Position 5

          Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

          I bought this guitar from musiciansfriend.com, particularly as it is always great dealing with them. This guitar was used (Level 2), but only slightly due what appears to be some pickguard wear. It was really like new and came with a gig bag which I don't think it mentioned in their site ad.

          I bought this as I wanted something a bit nicer than the standard Tele, but that still had that same feel and sound.

          This one has a great smooth neck; glossy on the back (maple), the string setup from the box was great also! The opportunity for five Tele pickup configurations also allows for versatility of sounds. If you have any experience with playing various guitars, I would say you can tell that these Tex-Mex pickups are a bit more powerful than what you may find in say a Squier Telecaster. (This is what I previously owned).

          On the other side of the coin, the Honey Blonde is a bit beige, but it is still a nice looking guitar. On the negative, the single coils hum a bit more when not dialed in with the mid-pup. I thought they would be quieter on a guitar of this price range.

          Overall, a quality instrument and good value. Thank you MusiciansFriend.
