"One of Fenders best"

If you always wanted a 335 but didn’t like the body then this is a viable alternative. This guitar is way overlooked. It can get very mellow tones to very nice tele tones and everything in between. The neck is super comfortable to play and it’s light weight. A perfect combo. No need to spend thousands when this guitar can do it all. Pick one up you won’t be sorry. The workmanship is spot on as well. It came fully set up no flaws at all just put on my strings of choice and took it to several gigs. The locking timers make changing strings a breeze and they work very well. Great job Fender and zZounds for a super fast delivery and great payment plan.
This guitar is great for jazz, blues, 60s rock, rock, country, finger picking, and pop. I wouldn’t recommend it for metal but with the right player you might get away with it. I use many amps from a fender Champ to Twin I keep the treble at 9 am, the bass at 1pm and the kids at 10 and the sound is sweet since the guitar by nature is a mid range instrument. I use those setting on all my guitars and just adjust the guitar pots as needed. Fit and finish are flawless and even the sound hole is done nicely. Binding is wonderful and neck is super smooth and fast. This is my new go to guitar and I have 136 to choose from.
The tone knob is really easy to work with and switch is great too just place in the right spot to grab easily. The tone pot has texture so it’s essy to work with on the fly.
Ease of Use
This guitar is easy to tune in just a matter of what you prefer it can do it all
Quality is top shelf no flaws no issues
Definitely worth the price. If I didn’t know how much it cost I would have guessed at least $2000+
Fender support has always been great for me. I haven’t needed them for this guitar but for others in the past they went above and beyond
The Wow Factor
The red color on this guitar is absolutely gorgeous and I’m not a red fan but this one is a beauty.
Professional for 50 years plus
jazz, 50’s 60’s rock, country, pop, and everything in between
