    Comments about Fender James Burton Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    If you don't mind a thick neck, this might be your Tele. Other vintage features include the Kluson style tuners and the 6 saddle bridge. Some have said that the bridge rattles, but I haven't found that to be a problem. String this up with .010's, and you'll be ready to play nearly any style (If you can't play it on a Tele, I'm not interested). The Mexican built quality is very good, and if James Burton played one, well...

    James Burton Standard Telecaster


    from Chambersburg, Pa

    Comments about Fender James Burton Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    Bought mine in 1998. A nice guitar but had a paint job that was interesting. I traded the store for a re-tube job on my "64" Deluxe Reverb as opposed to sending the guitar back. Do yourself a solid if you get this guitar. Swap all the chrome hardware for gold, tuners, bridge (Gotoh), control plate , knobs and replace the pickguard with a pearloid one. Put a Bill Lawrence (gold) pickup in the neck position, change the strings to Fender 3150TR Nickel Wound Bullets and you will have a stunning guitar that sounds great and looks great and a true tribute to the man whose name is on the headstock. And at this current price it should come out of Mexico looking like this!!!
