OVERVIEW

A departure from Fender’s traditional tonewood choices.

The 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster enhances the traditional Tele style with the elegant look of a Malaysian blackwood top. Strong and dense, Malaysian blackwood has plenty of sustain, perfect for soaring lead lines and raucous rhythm work.

For authentic, vintage-inspired tone, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is loaded with two JP-90 single-coil pickups. Topped by 22 narrow-tall frets for easy bending, the 9.5 in.-radius maple fingerboard is ideal for most playing styles, offering enough arc for comfortable chording while remaining flat enough for wide bends.

The custom string-through-body shortplate Tele bridge features compensated brass saddles for accurate intonation along the entire length of the neck. With its authentic, original-era sound and style, the 2017 Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster is a rare, inspiring example of Fender’s world-class craftsmanship. Includes hardshell case.

Somehow, in my prior review, a bunch of "cons" got checked. There are no CONS to this guitar if you don't mind the price.

Comments about Fender Limited Edition Malaysian Blackwood Telecaster Electric Guitar:

My example is a beautiful instrument that plays great and sounds amazing. The Fender P90 type pickups are powerful, though as expected with P90's, a bit susceptible to noise from stage lights, computers, etc. But that's a usual P90 issue.

I did have to adjust intonation when it arrived, but with the compensated brass barrel type bridge, that's easy enough to do. I also replace the tuners with Hipshot locking tuners: I just like those better, it's a personal preference.
