      Comments about Fender FSR Standard Ash Telecaster Electric Guitar:

      I've been playing guitar for about 6 months and I was in desperate need for an upgrade. The fsr ash tele didn't disappoint in any way. Pure fender tone and the color is gorgeous. Made the right decision to buy this and happy all the same. Don't hesitate to buy!

        Comments about Fender FSR Standard Ash Telecaster Electric Guitar:

        I was surprised that it played as well as it did. It came out of the shipping box very close to being a perfect setup. I plugged it in and tuned it up It's not an exact Telecaster sound but it is a very unique and Tele type of sound . I like it and it makes good off the normal track. I find it very easy action on the neck and the ability to go from beating to panio playing is very very nice.

          Comments about Fender FSR Standard Ash Telecaster Electric Guitar:

          I have always been a fender fanatic and thought that the only fender that mattered was American. This FSR telecaster has blown me away. I could not believe the look, feel and tone of this baby. She is a beauty and she plays great. I cannot believe the deal I got on this guitar. Now all my american standard teles and starts wait in line for this beauty. It is an amazing instrument.

              Comments about Fender FSR Standard Ash Telecaster Electric Guitar:

              It's a really solid feeling Tele with a classic look, the neck is comfortable, the action is fairly low and smooth, the butterscotch blonde finish is great. The pickups are modern, hotter, warmer and fatter sounding than the traditional Tele pickups, they sound great and to me would be suitable for anything from rocking country, blues and bluesy rock to hard rock and beyond. But if you are looking for a classic bright and twangy Tele tone you'll probably want to swap to a vintage wound pickup set.

              Comments about Fender FSR Standard Ash Telecaster Electric Guitar:

              This is my first Telecaster after having played a Les Paul for the last 20+ years. I am by no means a professional musician. I've played in a band for a few years and jammed with numerous people but have never owned a lot of guitars so my experience is limited with Fender guitars. I love the feel of the neck on this guitar it has a very fast feel to it. I play this guitar through a Fender Hot Rod Deluxe III and the Telecaster "twang" is superb. The neck pickup has a warmth to it and the bridge pickup has the signature tele sound although it does seem to crackle a little bit which i may be able to get out with some adjustments. I haven't picked up my Les Paul since i bought this guitar over a year ago which should speak volumes about this guitar. Most of the time i just have her in my lap unplugged plucking on the strings while watching TV. It's just a fun guitar to play. I won't go so far as to say i have totally switched from the Les Paul/Marshall combo but i have taking a break from it because of this Tele. So to recap: Neck feels great, bright "twangy" tone, lots of fun to play. That about sums it up!

                Really great guitar for the price. Restrung with .010's, a little set-up and she was purring. No problems intonating the vintage bridge either. Pickups are good for the price point, overall tonality is great. Finish on this guitar was beautiful. I ordered mine used level 2 and it arrived looking factory fresh. Great light butterscotch finish that lets the Ash woodgrain show through. Neck is great, very good fret work and very comfortable to play. She's a bit hefty but she sure can sing. Overall great instrument, really happy with my purchase. As always MF is a pleasure to do business with as well.

                  Beautiful guitar! It looks and feels great and the pick-ups are solid. It has that fantastic "tele" sound that i was looking for. My suggestions for improving the instrument might be to change the strings and adjust the neck tension rod slightly to get rid of the fret buzz.
