Why did I wait so long?

Blueso, 28.07.2018
I've been playing strats for nearly 30, but recently I inexplicably started hankering after a tele. Having reviewed all the available options, I eventually settled on the basic american special.

Why did I wait so long?! I love this guitar! I've found it to be more versatile than my strats, and it's even brought some pedals to life that never quite worked with the strat.

Build quality is fantastic, as you'd expect from an American Fender, and it looks beautiful in cherry sunburst.

It's a simple beast with no bells and whistles, but that's exactly what I was after.

I have a number of strats, including a vintage 1961, an early 90s Strat Plus Deluxe, and a fully customised MIM.

I've barely picked them up since I bought this...

A classic, I'd recommend it to anyone, beginner to pro.

good telecasters

Preze, 05.06.2018
First of all thank you for the fast delivery. All teepee topi. Then kams. Unpacked the guitar. Optics great and really flawlessly processed. String action? I did not really want to play bottleneck. so about 6 mm on the 12th fret. Well, you can change with relatively little effort. Then to the amplifier. Bridge - no sound. Middle position also no sound. Bridge, ok, there comes something. What now? Return department called. Everything was very friendly and no problem at all, can go back. Only, sold out at the moment. Crap. Do not leave me alone. Evenings screwed on, loose contact. 1 drop of Lötzin on it. Now she is doing what she should. And that in my ears incredibly good. Sound is exactly how I like it. Neck: a dream. Fingerboard oiled, new strings on it, DREAMY. Called again, again very friendly and nice staff !! Guitar stays with me. I do not give it back., ...... Can I really only recommend !!!!
PS maybe there's a set of strings for the trouble? I use Ernie Ball, Regular Slinky, 10-46 ;-)
