zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "What you'd expect"
Overall: Fender has made their living off of two guitars, primarily. The Telecaster and The Stratocaster. This Telecaster is different than a normal one. The standard version has a lipstick in the neck, this uses a wide-range humbucker. This means your once muddled rhythm sections now have more power, but be warned, for chunky riffing, and singing leads, you need the bridge single coil. The neck pickup is strictly for rhythm work, it misses on lead. The guitar is heavy, almost too heavy. It is a solid block of wood after all. The crummy tuning pegs have more robust versions on this guitar, which is stellar, and the neck is typical Fender--smooth and fast. The quality control is unparalleled, the support is fantastic. You don't get to be one of the most iconic guitar companies by providing crummy service. All in all, it's too heavy for me. I like the vintage vibe and ability to rock out on some Exile-era Stones tracks.
Style of Music: Acoustic Folk, Alt Rock, Dirge, Experimental, Jazz, Jam, Reggae

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.
