Customer Reviews
5 out of 5 (2 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Fender Select Thinline Telecaster"
Overall: I have owned a lot of Fenders including Strat's & Tele's but this one is the best I haved played. The neck is oh so comfy...up & down with ease. The action was a little high for me when I received the guitar...set up nice for slide thow...so I set the action nice and low which was a breeze with the neck on this tele. It is nice and straight and so easy to play. The look of this guitar just blows me away. Its so pretty, it reminds me of my X-wife...beautiful to look at but boy could she scream just like this guitar, It's sounds great with the Tele select pickups. I own a American Deluxe Tele and I prefer the select Thinline for feel and sound. I just can't say enough about how happy I am with the guitar and Zzounds. Their payment options are great allowing us budget minded musicians to get the gear we want and need and not break the bank. Thumbs up to you guys, its great to have you on our side. I gave 5 stars for Manufacturer support but I have not needed it, but come on...its Fender.

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.
