Comments about Fender FSR Telecaster Deluxe Electric Guitar:
9 because the guitar came with no damage at all. But the guitar was in one single box, without an outer carton to help protect it. I was very lucky there was no damage because it would have taken much to damage the guitar. Other than that...totally awesome guitar!
The '72 Deluxe is a joy to play. It has the smaller Tele headstock and the neck plays identical to my '69 Tele thin-line. Neck is very comfortable and fast. Frets are well rounded, and it feels real good. Action was good out of the box, but I might lower the action a tad. Cool "Fender" logo stamped in each pickup No paint blemishes or weird marks. neck joint is tight, and the hardware is solid.
I love the candy apple red with the off white groovy 70's pick-guard. The retro black volume/tone knobs are great to. I am a Les Paul guy, and love the toggle switch on the top. It already appears to be a vintage instrument. The pickups are fat and toney. Each setting has nice character and has it's own little sound. Kinda Les Paul/Telecaster mix with plenty of tone. I found myself playing it for over an hour out of the box. My rating reflects this fun, retro, groovy guitar...maybe a little pricey , (thus the "9" score) but it does have the "special edition" logo on the back, Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones played a similar model in the same candy apple red, so it may be a good little investment for collectors as well.
I own and play lots of guitars. I love guitars. This Tele is a very fun little muscle car to rip down the highway in. It plays like a classic twangy tele, but with Les Paulish fat sound. The pick-guard and chrome humbucker pickups really add a lot of vintage appeal. Very cool look in candle apple red, so if you have the money, and your looking for a great guitar with potential investment potential, this is a great guitar.
