Fender MEX '50s Telecaster MN BL

Electric Guitar

With its Classic Series, Fender Mexico is clear competition for its American parent company as these parts are worthy of professionals. They are indeed slightly more expensive than the standered Mexican parts, but, in comparison with the American ones, still more affordable - that is worth considering!

The 50 Classic Telecaster leans considerably towards the earliest (and highly sought after) originals. Its ash body and maple neck produce the legendary twang that has no competition, when considering power and dynamics, thanks to its neck single coil. With the neck single coil, bluesy sounds are also possible.

Best bang for the buck!

Oliver aus B., 14.02.2014
I've played a lot of Teles over the years. From cheap Squiers up to custom shop relic models. But after joining another rockabilly/rock'n'roll band I needed an "authentic" one for stage next to my Gretsch guitar. I have to say, the build quality is excellent. Nice finish, no sharp frets, a nice grained two piece body and a fabulous shaped neck (not as fat as an original 50s baseball bat but still very meaty). The stock pickups are pretty good but I changed them to '51 Nocasters. A huge improvement! The steel saddles sound very sparkly with lots of treble. I also changed them to brass and the synthetic nut to bone which gives this baby a full and beefy tone.
All in all a wonderful guitar for nearly every kind of music. Nothing to complain about.
This thing is gonna stay!

an aspiring musician friend, 26.07.2017
I will proceed with thanks for Thomann team which shipped the product safe and sound and in time, as they always did when I have ordered from here. Right when I got the guitar into my hands, the neck felt really comfortable and both the look and finish of the tele surprised me as well, since the guitar looks astonishing. Plugged into my Bugera V55 Infinium combo full valves, tele's crystal clear clean sound reached out. It has a really warm tone through my amp, as expected. For a mexican Fender telecaster, the guitar does the job and compared to my old Epiphone Les Paul it is certenly more comfortable and the sound is much more clear.

Cons:
The only problem that I have is that, when plugged in the amp, there is a little noise beacouse of the "female jack cable entrance", which I suspect is a litle bit loose and hard to reach for tighten up.
