Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "No Worries Here!!! She's Nice!"
Sound: I first plugged it into a 57 gretsch combo( champ like) and played the hell out of it. The texas specials break the amp up nicely but still stay really clear and the tone circuit really does work well. Feature: No Frills, like a tele should be really besides the grease bucket tone circuit that works really well. Oh and the jumbo's...love the jumbo's Ease of Use: It was plug and play, Really smooth pots...and the big frets make it wonderful to play... Quality: The action was a little high and the .009's were way to light but I was amazed at how nice the finish was, the build quality, the action in the pots...they weren't stiff like alot of newer stuff is now...It has a gorgeous brazillian rosewood fretboard and i know my rosewood...I build pool cues for a day job and this rates up with some of the highest quality wood that i have. The frets are finished nicely...no railroad tracks sliding up. Value: You can't buy much for under a grand nowdays and this is one that i recommend picking up before it to is over the 1000.00 mark. It's well worth it. Manufacturer Support: Never talked to em The Wow Factor: A tele is a tool, and like any other tool will do what ever you make it do...But theres things a tele can do that nothing else can. Overall: I was a little worried with what fender has been doing on there lower American stuff lately but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised after the worry passed and I opened the box. I'm definitely satisfied, get one before there over a grand!
Style of Music: Blues, Classic Rock, Roots , whatever happens....

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.
