"Fender Telecaster Rarity - A rare GEM indeed"

Fender Telecaster guitars are iconic all on their own merits. This creation from Fender is a true mind bender. It takes all of the good stuff you've become accustomed to and put them into a beautiful package topped off with a handsome slab of maple on the top. The next part of this beautiful equation is the Tim Shaw designed pickups. In my opinion Shaw was the best addition to the Fender engineering staff. I was so totally blown away by the way the single coil bridge and Shaw-bucker work together. Switching between pickups is very consistent with no change in volume when switching. The satin neck makes you feel right and home too. Last but not least is the weight and balance of this instrument. It is as close as it gets to perfection. The build quality is superb. If you are looking for a Tele with the kind of twist you'll like, try the 'Rarities Series' from Fender. If you have time take a look at my unboxing/sound test video on YouTube. https://youtu.be/rbvDA-ZMdQA
This Fender Telecaster is an absolute GEM of an instrument. Perfect for any studio or live situation. Don't let the good looks fool you. It's a beast and it can take the punishment of an extensive tour on the road.

Ease of Use
From the moment you plug in and hit your first notes you'll have a very big smile on your face.
This is a rock solid build and I would have to say that this telecaster can take the abuse of a road tour with anyone. It also comes with a durable hard shell case. Thank you Fender.
zZounds priced this instrument at a number that I could NOT resist. Thank you zZounds!
Be sure to register every new product with the manufacturer. Fender, Gibson, and PRS stand behind their products and they'll take care of any issue that might arise. They take care of their customers.
The Wow Factor
One of the best perks about this instrument is the good looks. It's beautiful. Each instrument has it's own MOJO and you'll find one that connects to your own personal MOJO too. Give it a try.
