OVERVIEW

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

As downhome and sophisticated as the city it's named for, the Deluxe Nashville Tele guitar comes with a Tex-Mex Stratocaster pickup in between two Tex-Mex Telecaster pickups. 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.

Includes a gig bag.

I just received this last week. It arrived in perfect condition in the original box with all the case candy. After I inspected it visually it was perfect. The neck had a little bow in it and, the action needed adjustment. After about 30min. all of the adjustments were made and, i checked the intonation which was spot on and, that was it. Plugged it into my amp checked the electronics adjusted the pickup height and, it was playing time. I got out my old American Tele which I has been a Great playing and, sounding guitar for well over 40yrs. and, I must say that the Tex-Mex pickups on this new Tele really sound Great. I love my old Tele but, this new one really shines! I've wanted one of the Nashville Telecaster's ever since they came out. I liked the idea of the 3rd PUP and, the 5way switch for the extra sound combos and, I was not disappointed in the sounds that I got. I found out that this particular model was not going to be in production anymore and, that a new one was replacing it which was going to sport a higher price tag. I think that this one was the last one that MF had, it was a level 2 and, I got a Great deal and, a Great guitar! I'm sure glad I snagged this one when I did!

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.

Zeppelin machine

By Max the Axe

from Pacific NW

Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

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.

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.

Nashville Deluxe Telecaster

By lucas makley

from Ohio

Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

Overall I think the Nashville Deluxe Tele is a great guitar. The guitar pays very well, appears to have a decent setup from the factory, and looks great. The only problem I have with it is the electronics. The bridge pickup quit working about six months after I got it. I replaced it with a Duncan Jerry Donahue so all is well now. In my opinion the stock pickups are not very good. I know some people like the tex mex pickups, but they just don't seem to have much body or clarity to them. I think if the electronics were higher quality the guitar would be a better value. I bought it so I could have the tele sound and strat versatility and it gives you just that. To me it gives you 75% tele and 25% strat, but that is to be expected since it is basically a stock tele with a third pickup and a 5 way switch. I do think it is a great guitar and would have no problems using it as my only guitar, I just think upgraded electronics would really make it come alive. I would have no problem with owning another one and would definately recommend it to a friend.

Awesome Guitar

By jbjones7

from Hickory, NC

Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

I purchased this guitar from Musicians Friend around 5 years ago. I love it. It is very versitile. It has a really clear and crisp twang when clean, and can soar with high gain. This guitar is perfect for any blues/SRV enthusiast. This is a great guitar to have in the lineup. Used it gigging and wound up playing it more than my Gibson SG even on heavier songs.

    Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    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 !!!

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I own 4 Fender guitars, Strat, 6-string acoustic, 12-string acoustic, and the Nashville Tele, plus some by other manufacturers but the Tele is my favorite.
      The pick-up configuration allows for such a wide variety of sounds that most of my other guitars sit jealous in the rack. The neck on the Tele is so smooth and easy to work with it plays like greased lightning. It plays like a much more expensive instrument. Way to go Fender!!!

      This is the one!

      By Michael Wiles

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      Seriously, just buy this guitar. It sounds amazing, it's affordable, and incredibly versatile. The addition of the strat tex-mex pickup in the middle is incredible in and of itself, but the five-way pickup selection it offers far outstrips the standard, three-way tele selection. Moreover, the six-saddle bridge offers truly accurate intonation callabration (as opposed to the standard, three-saddle tele bridge).

      Believe it or not, but when stacked against my Les Paul 1958 VOS--itself an unstoppable instrument--I've found this one does more with a lot less cost.

      The strat lover telecaster

      By newsquierlover

      from Sunny California

      See all my reviews

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      Just got this baby in honey blonde from guitar center, and I have to say WOW!!!! I traded in my MIM 07 strat for a new guitar, I was looking for new sounds, since I am a strat guy. I love the blues and jazz, so I toughth I could get another hollow from Ibanez or an epi, I tested a couple of epis, even the hollow PRS which I have been flirting with for a while.... Tried a tele dlx with dual humbucker, beautiful (next she is coming home with me) sounding, and to look at, great break up of the pick ups..... But the Nashville Tele got me in love with a couple of notes. Cleans that sound with the twang and the quack of both tele and strat (positions 2 and 4 on the selector), and it can go into overdrive pretty nice, just let the PUs push your amp, s it should be.... WOW!!! Im not a big fan, but she is crying chicken picking, might have to do some country with this baby!!!! Get it if you are a strat lover and want a different sound on your line up. Get it if you are a telecaster guy or girl. If you love guitar, get it, it is a great instrument!! Let me go do some Muddy Waters now

      Comments about Fender Deluxe Series Nashville Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I got this guitar about 4 years ago when I was only 14 and I have loved it every day. Since I purchased it (my first guitar was an Epiphone Les Paul Studio), I have started to play a lot more blues, and let me tell you: this guitar is made for the blues. With the Strat pickup sandwiched in there, the blends I can get from this guitar are classic Fender. I plan on bringing it to college with me for my second semester.

        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.
