Amazing guitar

24.03.2017
I play guitar for whole my life. More then 40 years... Started with bad guitar. Then, many years later came B.C.Rich. A wonderful guitar.
Now I'm 64 and I decided to spice up my life with something special. After studied various guitars on YouTube I chose Fender Telecaster Elite. I was just watching the videos. Hundreds and hundreds of them. At last, I decided to stay at opinion that Elite is the right one.
I sent order to Thomann and waiting to see what will come.

After unboxing and first minutes of playing I was frozen. That was the sound I always wanted to have. Never mind, whether is it for The Shadows style or Mark Knopfler style... or Jimi Hendrix... It was always magic.

Now, six months later, I am still obsessed with the magic sound of this guitar. It is simply PERFECT!

I don't know, what is more beautiful! That feeling when you touch the neck and knobs, which are made for gods... or strumming and soloing on that two pick-ups.

What more to say? Everything about it has been already written... I just can add: Buy it and be happy until the last day of your life!

A mature guitar

Curt, 01.11.2016
First a few information about the Unboxing, which I did not find out before the purchase during my research:

The supplied cable is 3 meters long.
The Telecaster is delivered with Schaller Straplocks. If you do not like it, you have to screw on your guitar.
The 5 cm wide included belt is made of cowhide with a plastic fabric (90% to 10%). This makes it a little stretchy.
The protective film on the neck pickup can not simply be peeled off. Apparently the pickup must be loosened / removed, in order to clean the protective film.

For processing:
Everything is good, really! Alone in the woodfinishing I hadere a bit. Ok, a natural product. But why do I have to look directly at the front belt suspension for gray areas on the side body, which result from unclean saw work and subsequent painting? The rest of the side body is perfect.
Here is the crux of the mail order: you can be the most beautiful? Do not choose the guitar yourself. Whether Thomann maybe optical B-goods gets?

To playability and sound, Fender has made good thoughts:
All we've heard in the last 50 years, this guitar can be sound. The sustain is wonderful and the intonation in every bunch is clean. The strings are good from the factory, for the blueser perhaps a little too low. There is the directly accessible adjusting wheel for the collar to adjust comfortably.
The component neck C to D is really fun. It is hardly thicker from the saddle to the body. I once measured with the Schubleere. With the handles on the deep frets I have something in my hand and with solos in higher frets it sucks as if by itself. Class!
The guitar is balanced when I place my right arm on the guitar. Fine.

To the pickup circuit:
The S1 option is awesome. The pickups are electrically connected in series. This is the sound characteristic of a Danelectro, which I have been playing for a long time. The Danelectro has little sustain for bendings, but it has more punch for bluesy pickpicks. The current Telecaster offers a great compromise.
In addition, the S1 option adds more output to the amp. It is similar to the fat switch on the Fender Blues Junior III, but on the guitar itself.

Conclusion:
After a few hours it was clear to me: the guitar is not sent back and is now unsaleable.
