The thing about a Telecaster is the simplicity of it. This guitar is a solid made instrument. Stripped down, basic Tele. It doesn't have the body contours, pick-ups and machine heads of the USA models. But make no mistake, this is one solid guitar! Very good quality, sound and playability. Got that classic Tele "twang". A variety of tone can be pulled out of this guitar. A little heavier than the USA models as well! Before you drop the cash on an American model, play one these first. You'll be hard pressed to tell the difference other than visual appointments. I've been playing guitar for 50 years now and still can't believe the guitar you get for this price! It's a steal! I have Gibsons, but always wanted a Tele just for the sound that they produce. This guitar's tone and quality is every bit as good as the high end guitars that I own. If you purchase this guitar, you will be very impressed and not disappointed. I figure just a matter of time the MIM Tele's price is just about to skyrocket! The secrets out, folks! Get one at this price while you can!

    Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    The telecaster arrived a few days later than normal, because I asked MF to open the box and check the neck before shipping. I had another Tele arrive that was terribly warped and you know it takes time to replace and ship. I was very pleasantly surprised with this Standard Tele. After a few adjustments to the truss and string trees I was able to lower the string to very easy fretting. Adjusting the intonation was easy also. The sound and ease of play are excellent and this Tele has made my American Strat take a back seat. Always looking for a bargain, the 15% discount made it a remarkable deal? Thanks MF for your sales and service.

    Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

    This is a "Player's Instrument! I was playing this Guitar straight out of the box which tells me that whoever set it up knew what he/she was doing. Fit and finish are excellent and I liked the way that the backside of the Neck was treated with a satin finish and the Fingerboard side of the Guitar was done in high gloss. I've been playing Guitar for over 46 years and when it comes to knowing what a "Player's instrument is, this one is it! The 'tele. that I just recieved from MF on 8/15/2014 was advertised as used but I haven't found anything about this Guitar that was used. The candy apple red paint is flawless and the plastic film that was on both the pick guard and the chrome neck pickup had to be removed, that's it! My new "Tele now has a name (Ms. Khandi Roughe) and I could not be happier with my purchase!

      Awesome guitar for the price. Change the strings once you get it, that should kill the minor fret buzz. Other than that, I'm totally happy with this purchase!

        Bought this Tele as a "used" item. Basically. it's a "brand new" guitar with just a finish gouge on the back bottom corner. May have happened at the factory, and it slipped through QC. oh well...Cant see it when playing, and obviously has no effect on tone. Very satisfied with my purchase. Musiciansfriend Rocks!

            A few weeks ago all of my Strats were stolen and I ordered a used Tele for a quick replacement. After a small mix up in ordering, Musician's Friend went above and beyond to make sure I had a guitar fast.
            It was setup and rocking right out of the box. Super fast neck(feels like the Strats I'm used to),love the glossy front and satin back. The Lake Placid blue is gorgeous. Couldn't be happier with this one.

            This guitar has a great sound for the money. I would give it 5 stars if it weren't for the slight fret buzz. Overall, I am enjoying it immensely. Musician's Friend has stellar customer service,so my experience in purhasing this guitar has been great all around.

              Had mine for about a year without problems. I installed a bigsby on mine, which turned the twang on it into a more harmonious sound. It is a fun guitar. I play it everyday, even though it is sitting next to a '61 g6120! It gave me that great fender sound I was looking for.

              Comments about Fender Standard Telecaster Electric Guitar:

              I recently purchased this guitar in "Midnight Wine". I was worried that it was going to be more of a red than a dark purple, however, when I received it I was thrilled to see that the dark color was there. I put a black tele pickguard on it and now it looks even better. The feel and glide of the neck can't be beat, and all of the tone you could ask for is there. The only problem is the factory set up. I have some fret buzz, not horrible, but enough to bother me. The open D and G buzz, as well as the fifth and seventh frets. I plan to take it to a guitar shop and have it properly set up, and fully expect this guitar to sound, look, feel, and play like a USA model. If you don't mind having some work done, THEN GET THIS GUITAR.
