Perfect telecaster for my needs

VMate, 21.09.2017
In the past couple of years I have owned and played a bunch of different American made Fender telecasters: '52 AVRI, American special (the olympic white one with maple neck which is now discontinued), '62 AVRI, American standard, etc. From these instruments there was only one which I regret selling: the American special. It was almost the perfect telecaster for my needs: the vintage bridge, bluesy pickups, beautiful satin neck, badass logo, thin poly finish (which I prefer over nitro), , medium jumbo frets, simple circuit. The only thing I missed was a nice rosewood fretboard with a color which screams vintage. And Fender finally released this beauty, and I am sure that this tele is a keeper. It is my dream telecaster, and in my opinion it is much more true to the roots of Fender than the American Pro line. I highly recommend this product. Don't be fooled by the hard shell case, if you are looking for the perfect tele, this is the real deal.

The best AM Special Tele

21.11.2015
I ordered the guitar online while I was away from home, and I asked If I could receive it in time for my return in the weekend. Thomann were great to close the order and make it delivered two days in advance: excellent as usual!
The appeal of the Texas Special pickups sound is well known and in my view is perfectly balanced by the warmth of the rosewood fingerboard.
Personally, I do not appreciate the appearance of Lake Placid Blue finish, which I expected to be a little darker...
The overall quality of the instrument is good, though I think that if you want more from a US made Fender, you'd better go for the Standard series.
Nevertheless, I still do believe that this is the best choice for an American Special Telecaster.
