Squier Contemporary Telecaster RH Electric Guitar, Roasted Maple Fingerboard

Razor sharp tone at an affordable price! The Squier Contemporary Telecaster is packed with a rail humbucker in the bridge and an Atomic neck humbucker.

The Squier Contemporary Telecaster RH brings modern features and bold aesthetics to an iconic Fender platform to satisfy today's most discerning and daring players. At the heart of this guitar is a SQR rail humbucking bridge pickup and a Squier SQR Atomic humbucking neck pickup (RH = Rail humbucker + Humbucker), which offer a versatile range of massive genre- defying tones without hum.

The roasted maple neck was chosen for its optimal tone and stability, and a sculpted neck design allows for improved access all the way to the 22nd fret. High-performance components round out the feature list and include a string-through-body hardtail bridge for ideal body resonance, and a set of sealed-gear tuning machines with split shafts for smooth tuning action and easy restringing. Eye-catching styling cues include stealthy black hardware and a sleek matching painted headstock with chrome logos for a premium look.

I originally bought this with the intention of harvesting it for parts for a swamp ash Tele that I'm building (as a Fender roasted maple neck is $400 on it's own). However, after receiving this guitar and playing with it for a few days...I am beyond impressed. I have always looked down my nose at Squier, and it appears I have been very wrong in doing so. Everything is great on this guitar. The hardware is all sleek. The neck is *gorgeous*. The roasting of the maple seems to take some of the 'snap' you tend to hear in a traditional maple fingerboard. The pickguard-less face really pops with the binding, and the relief cut on the back is always nice on a Telecaster. Switchplate is already reversed. Tone knob has an incredibly wide range. Lastly, the hotrail and humbucker are both far better tone quality than I expected to hear in a guitar for under $500. They both handle OD/distortion *very* well. After spending these last few days with it, I have decided to keep it and instead will harvest my Player Plus Tele for parts instead (yes, I am *that* impressed with this guitar). After noticing there were no reviews here for the model, and seeing so many online that have simply had the neck removed and relisted, I felt the need to let everyone know that this guitar is so much more than just spare parts. I'll definitely be checking out more from Squier. Particularly this Contemporary line. Strat or Jazzmaster next? We shall see!
