    Comments about Fender USA Professional Standard Telecaster HS:

    When I pulled it out of the box and 'soft' case. The action was high, and it didn't feel right. I am guessing it may have been knocked out of "adjustment" during the shipping. I got the saddle heights/intonation/and neck perpendicular to the body (It was not square and the screws needed to snugged a bit). After the set up, this fellow's voice improved and the intonation sounded much better! Try some fat arpeggios in the lower register; play straight-ahead rock n roll boogie-woogie; and screaming leads above the 12th fret! Mine took a lot of adjusting, but I think that worthless guitar bag is why it got knocked out of alignment. My neck plate was not installed square with the guitar. That was just sloppy craftsmanship...but I Love this guitar.

      Comments about Fender USA Professional Standard Telecaster HS:

      I have never played a more versatile guitar in my life. The amount of different tones is endless. The custom wound pick ups sound fantastic. They really do sound custom. I have never heard pickups with so much character. And the coil splitting button just tops it all off. The most impressive thing about this guitar though is the intonation. I have only had the guitar 4 days and from day 1 the intonation was perfect. It does not go out of tune. The only issue I had was the nut was not cut deep enough on the A, D and G strings. But that is a simple fix. Once I filed those nut grooves down I was bending all over the place and doing it with ease. The neck is super smooth and easy to play. The frets are higher than my Strat which I absolutely love. Oh and the sunburst finish is flawless. This is a guitar that will be in my collection forever.

              Bought this on an impulse about a year ago. This is my favorite guitar I've owned out of about a dozen. For me this is the perfect guitar for tele lovers who also like to reach into the realm of Gibson bite and tone. You don't quite have the classic Roy Nichols country bite with this guitar. Fender has instead slid the scale to a more modern rock sound. You can reach almost all of the creamy fender tones through the neck and hit Les Paul or SG like sounds with the bridge. Flawless playability and great electronics too. Balance, feel, sound. Can't recommend enough!

                Comments about Fender USA Professional Standard Telecaster HS:

                Great looking, beautiful finish. Not exactly a true Tele tone but close. Real close. Like most push pulls you have to add volume with the single coil, but once you reset the volume accordingly, sounds great. Sounds almost like you added a twinge of chorus. Only guitar I ever had that I had to roll back the treble a bit. This thing really bites. The humbucker also adds a nice growl. A sound of it's own. My only complaint is the tall frets. I play a lot of leads out of chords and I tend to push the chords out of tune while pulling and bending other strings. After I play it a while, I will get use to it. Great USA tele for the money.

                  Was trying the new gibsons and was not happy with quality and feel or sound for that matter and have been a die hard paul flying v guy for 35 years, A buddy put the tele in my hands between les pauls and I couldnt put it down.....smooth neck,,,, perfect playabilty right up the neck with clean crisp note,,,,, I hit the bucker in the bridge and this thing growled,,,, went from country blue grass to heavy chunky melodic solos with every note crisp clean and powerful,,,,, got it home and ran it through a jtm45 with 412 cab and it sounded better then my les paul which I would not have belived ,,,, Im a beliver ,,,,, fender nailed this thing and its a ctually affordable,,,,, nice job Fender

                    I bought this one the 2nd time I saw it. Had purchased a SG but was never really happy with it. I've got a Gold Top Les Paul and a Strat. Bought a Marshall DSL 40 running through a 4x12 1960 cab. Sounds fantastic with anything played. This Tele just feels right when you play it. I've been playing now for 4 years and am still learning. Love the Blues and classic rock. The Tele with the Humbucker can keep up with alot. It feel's sooooo good to play. The price is what sold me. Went ahead and purchased a hard shell case. Real nice guitar. GET ONE. You won't regret it at all.

                      The finish is flawless
                      The action right on
                      The sound quite good
                      It has a growl of its own unlike a Strat or Les Paul. Its a welcome addition to my arsenal of sounds. The only gripe is no hardshell case. For the money you'd think Fender would include one. The soft shell case is ok.

                      Anyway musicians friend is great. No complaints with years of experience buying from them.

                        I am just starting to learn to play and I have always wanted a genuine made in the USA Fender Telecaster . I am very happy with this model and I am finally at age 51 sitting down for at least a half hour a night and practicing chords .
