Take a Tele trip on the dark side!
Beneath its sleek carved-top visage, this incarnation of the Tele seethes with the restless energy imparted by a pair of premium Seymour Duncan pickups and a resonant set neck. An SH-1 RP at the neck and a Pearly Gates at the bridge deliver smokin' firepower to handle the most aggressive music genres and playing styles. 3-way switching and master volume/tone pots keep your sound where you want it. The high-access, set neck has 24 medium-jumbo frets. Black hardware and a hardtail bridge wrap up this sleek package.
The Pearly Gates humbucker generates a less-refined Patent Applied For sound that's sweet but slightly rude, echoing the rebellious sounds of Texas blues musicians. The SH-1 RP (Reverse Polarity) spawns the warm, smooth tone and sustain that made humbucker inventor Seth Lover a legend.

5 star rating! :)
The color, the looks and the sound are all good. The stock Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates and SH-1 RP are fit to give a sound of a true telecaster tone. If you play metal genre, i suggest to change pick ups to EMG 81/60 so that this guitar will sound like Jim Root's telecaster

This is one fine guitar. Set neck that is great to play, Seymour Duncans (both of which sound great), coutoured body, great action, awesome all-black finish and does it all! The neck pickup has a great thick sound and really growls when cranked up with high gain. The neck is your typical Pearly Gates...phenomenal sound and great for any type of music except real heavy metal (which nobody would buy a fine guitar like this for anyway). It can do killer classic rock, great blues tone, punk and, contrary to one of the other reviews, also sounds great cleaned up for jazz or country. The middle position on the 3-way pickup switch is a coil tap that gives you that good old fashioned Tele twang.This is easily the most versatile guitar that I own and I own quite a few. This is a great deal even at full price. Too bad it's been discontinued...it's one of Fender's best ever.
This guitar is great because it's pretty good for every type of music except very heavy metal(death, black etc) wich it manages but sounds much better through effects, and the clean sounds on it aren't very good, but after some fiddling you get some decent sounds. Don't let the whole texas thing put you off, the pearly gates pick up sounds great with big distortion and the sh-1 is all you'd expect. Fender have really steped up with this guitar it is so much better than any other in it's price range I guarantee. When I received it the neck was covered in sweat and the action was setup any old way but at that price you can't complain too much, I am extremly pleased with it, go and BUY IT!
I bought this guitar a while back, and seriously, it plays like butter. This guitar has the most bang for its buck compared to any other guitar I've ever played/seen.I know its discontinued now, but if you can find a new one still or get a used one, i HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
i have used this guitar before and i fell in love with it. i used it with alot of stuff such as my peavey XXL head, 2 behringer 4x12 cabs, jimi hendrix wah-wah and a digitech metal master. it took me a while to make up my mind what kind of axe i wanted next because for a 16 year old i have very good stuff i just needed a good guitar that im not saying my guitars suck or anything.well for my band i wanted to sound unique. and this telecaster makes us unique. when i used it, i lowered the tune to a drop B, used all my equipment that i listed and it is awlsome. i love palm muting it because it has a high pitch jackson sound with alot of fuzz mixed in with the wah and metal master that made a weird sound in a good way.i love pretty much everything about this guitar exept the pickups, im more of an EMG person so when i get one of my own im putting an EMG 81 at the bridge and an EMG 85 below the neck. after doing that this guitar will be my axe of choice.
This guitar has far exceeded my expectations, and is the most versatile telecaster I own. The tone is more "les paul" sounding than the normal "twang" you would expect from a Tele. About 6 months after I bought it the tone and volume pots had to be replaced because of crackles, but that's nothing major. I love this axe.
I just got this ax a few this ago and it sounded great but I have to tell I got very dissapointed later, when I read the reviews it seemed it was a killer guitar but the neck was kind of worn out and it was kind of hard to play. I have a ltd esp ec 300 and it plays wasy better than this korean made guitar. I loved the pick ups that it came with but I had to retur it because of the neck and the feelin' of this guitar is not what I thougt.In my opinion if you make some adjustments on it it will be a prety killer ax.......
Great neck, Awesome electronics, strait black, nice woods. The best guitar for anything that rocks. It can play everything from jazz to thrash. Jazzcore thrash metal. Booyah!
This was a no brainer. I got it for the sale price plus a coupon for 70% off. The PG+ screams rock and roll and RW is a heavy, thick neck pickup. This is a pure rock and roll guitar. It will do some dirty blues. It doesn't play clean very well but it wasn't designed to. Heavy palm muted rythms are perfect. Sustaining leads forever. As I type these are almost gone. Snooze you lose. You will not find a better guitar for close to this price. It is a proffessional quality instrument. Fender nailed it with this one. I imagine the dotless fretboard was the reason they're blowing them out. Simply put, there are dot markers on the neck. Playing a plain fretboard is no different than one with fret markers. Get the last one. You won't regret it!
