I never thought that Fender would be able to use to the Broadcaster name again, so when I saw this get released, I had to snag one. The neck is nice and chunky, but not as massive as some of the older AVRI '52 Teles. Included with the guitar is a really nice 70th Anniversary case with plenty of case candy for all the Leo Fender nerds out there.
Musical Background:
I've been playing guitar in bands and at home for 16 years.
Musical Style:
Rock, Jazz, Americana, Blues, etc.
