4.5 out of 5 (213 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "52 reissue is amazing!"
Overall: i was a little skeptical to order this guitar online without playing it first,but WOW! thanks to a buddy of mine who is a well respected studio player in nashville,i took his advise and gave zzounds a chance,and i honestly cant say enough about how pleased i am with my purchase! this guitar showed up at my door just as if i had went straight to the fender show room and picked it out myself. absoulutly flawless,perfectly set intonation,the action did not have to be tweaked at all.i know this may be a rare occasion but then again maybe not? the tech support i had talked to where totally knowledgeable on every aspect of the guitar and could answer any question i had prior to ordering it. so yeah, as a working musician myself,i would recommend using this company for all of you equipment needs! in fact,i actually just ordered a second guitar from zzounds yesterday,the new 58 reissue and i cant wait to get it!!

"52 TELECASTER"
Sound: THE SOUND THESE PICKUPS PRODUCE IS PERFECT FOR COUNTRY AND OLD ROCK. LOVE IT. Feature: THE SIX SADDLE BRIDGE CAME IN HANDY. I LOVE TO HAVE PERFECT INTONATION AND TUNING ON MY GUITARS. THE 3 SADDLE IS COOL BUT I FOUND THAT THE SIX SADDLE WORKS BETTER FOR TUNING IF YOU DO ALOT OF BENDS. IT IS EASY TO CHANGE OVER. TOOK ABOUT 15 MINUTES. PLAN ON SPENDING SOME TIME DIALING THE ACTION AND INTONATION IN. PRETTY TOUGH, BUT WELL WORTH IT!!! THE CASE AND VINTAGE STRAP ARE VERY COOL ALSO. Quality: FIT AND FINISH IS AMAZING! I LOVE THE NECK FINISH AND THE QUALITY PROCESSES THAT FENDER OBVIOUSLY USES WHEN PRODUCING THIS TYPE OF GUITAR. THEY PAY VERY CLOSE ATTENTION TO DETAIL. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME LOOK AT THE SWITCH AND PICKUP ROUTES UNDER THE PICKGUARD. PRETTY TRUE TO VINTAGE SPECS/ Manufacturer Support: I HAVE DELT WITH FENDER ON SEVERAL OCCASSIONS. THEY ARE FANTASTIC! I PERSONALLY WOULD NOT DEAL WITH ANY GUITAR MANUFACTURER BUT FENDER. NEVER NEEDED THE WARRANTY, I DO ALL MY OWN UPGRADES, REPAIRS ARE NOT NECCESARY IF YOU TAKE CARE OF THESE GUITARS!

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
