I must have read 100+ reviews on this page and from the GC in the U.S. The positivity inspired me to order this one from the Vancouver store without trying it first. I was surprised at the minimal packaging, but that being said, it arrived via Canada Post in perfect condition. I had reservations about the brass barrel saddles and their related intonation issues. But I learned the aftermarket compensated ones aren't that expensive so I'll go that route. In the meantime, I've got it pretty close to right. I'm sold on this guitar in a very big way. All the good things I read were true, and I look forward to making it well-used in short order.

No guitar comes out of the factory perfect. But the FSR I bought was close. That said, I had the frets levelled and a compensated bridge installed. Yeah, I know, close to $1000 and I had to tweak the details, but the few extra bucks were worth the money. I own an amazing guitar. The ash body is a nice twist on the traditional alder, and the reverse switch plate ads a little difference.

Got a good deal on a used one (but not a mark or blemish on it...in fact, side by side with a new one, I'd lay money on anyone being able to tell the new one from the used)...and I have to say, this is one super-nice tele! I love it. The tone. The color. The setup...all top-notch. I would highly recommend that anyone thinking of laying out a small fortune on an American Standard...give one of these babies a try first. Preferably at the same time...You won't be disappointed.

Value, value, value. This is an excellent example of the legendary Telecaster, and I don't see that the full-priced 'Made in USA' model is any better -- just a bit different. The fit and finish of the guitar is excellent. I appreciate the reversed controls (Why weren't they all made like this?). The ash body really highlights the highs! Indeed, it may be a bit too much for some tastes, but it's easier to back off the treble than to boost it. But what sealed the deal for me is that the pickups are reasonably quiet. I've had Fenders before (Strats and Teles, mostly USA models) and the noise from the single coils was irritating... the price I had to pay for the Fender sound. But this guitar is QUIET. I don't know if it's the pups, or perhaps superior shielding. Whatever, I am very happy. This is a keeper.

I intended to buy an American made Tele until I played this guitar. There was something immediately special about it...the weight, the feel, the sustain and so on. I would play an American then pick this up, play another American, then back to this one...it was the winner. Pick ups sound fantastic! I tend to play off the neck or neck bridge combined for clean jazz tones and I am very impressed. Reversed controls make volume swells a pinch. I set the guitar up myself as I prefer little or no relief and action as low as possible with 11-49s therefore it took a little tweaking to get it there. For those who don't know, L&M will do a set up usually included in the price (I just like to do my own).

New Tele . . . 2016 FSR (Fender Special Run) Deluxe Tele. American components and parts, assembled in Mexico. Not Mexican mfg. No offence intended. I suppose some folks would think me silly in the noggin, for choosing this Mexican assembled guitar over a USA made, but I really, really like this one. I had a 2008 American Std Tele that I traded in towards this one. I could never bond with it. It was mint, but I simply could not get it to "sit" right for me. It was also tooooo bright sounding. Ice picky, in your face, obnoxiously bright. On the other hand, this MIM "Special Edition" is everything I love about a good Tele. The standard (vintage voice) hotter-output ceramic pickups give me plenty of warmth and meat while maintaining signature Tele clarity and bite. I prefer the vintage-styled brass barrels over the American Std (6) saddle setup. I prefer the reversed control plate. It's so convenient for volume and tone swells. I luv, luv, luv the neck, fret board and frets. The action on this thing is perfect for me. No fretting out, no buzz, and slick as rain! The body weight is just right. I found the American std. too light . . . The Fender sealed, die-cast tuning keys seem to be very nearly the same quality as USA Fenders' variety. The vintage-styled "ashtray" bridge is a little less refined than a more expensive USA-made Fender. Mine has a couple of rough edges. The pots and switch are standard, excellent Fender quality. Others have checked and report that they are CTS pots. I wouldn't be surprised if it were true because they "feel" like good quality controls. Last, but not least, I adore the classic '52 butterscotch blonde w/ black guard look! The sunburst model I had was nice, but I much prefer this classic, ol-skool look. These don't ship with a case or even a gig bag so I retained my (SKB) Fender case from the American Std. Long-McQuade gouged me pretty hard on the deal, but I live in a remote rural area so it's too difficult for me to sell a used guitar. Besides, I really, really like this one. I think it was made just after morning coffee break on a Wednesday. For a little under $900, I am super happy with it and I feel very blessed.

I recently purchased one of these and fell in love the moment I picked it up. I did only make one minor change from factory pickup in the bridge due to the heavier style of music I play but if you love the bright tones from your Tele, this is the guitar for you! I threw a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails bridge pick up in it to get the beefy, clear tones I need. Still has the beautiful clean tones too. Would recommend for anyone playing all styles of music. Definitely worth the money.

Got this guitar a few weeks ago. With unlimited resources I would have bought something American made, but having played an American Standard not long prior, there's nothing I can point to on this guitar that is noticeably cheaper than the American made ones. I chose this over a standard MIM version for the pickups and the classic look. It plays really well and I enjoy the neck radius and shape. I do have to say that the parts choices are a little interesting. It has the modern stamped tuners and yet uncompensated barrel saddle bridges. Some people may enjoy the true-to-vintage saddles; in that case, vintage tuners would complete the look. Myself, I'll be getting compensated barrel saddles to improve the intonation and probably some oval vintage locking tuners to both match the vintage look and improve function. I took the 9s off and put 10s on. Made a nice improvement. I might put on flatwound 11s on next. This isn't a shredding guitar. Setup was good out of the box, tweaked the truss rod slightly and good to go.

I had owned a standard MIM tele about 5 years back. Although it was a great guitar for the money, there is something just much better about the FSR. I find a notieable improvment in the tone - much more alive than than standard MIM. It's probably a combination of the hot pups and ash body, but I absolutely love everything about it. I first played one roughly 6-8 months ago and have had only this guitar on my mind. I had a chance to buy a used American standard tele (swamp ash body rosewood frets) for the same price as a new FSR and I chose the FSR...fantastic guitar for the price

Further to my review of Oct/16/15, the output jack is the cheap one found in the low end guitars. Horrible jack to be honest. However, it took me only 5 minutes to replace it with a good Switchcraft 1/4" jack. Everything else is of good quality. The CTs pots, the 3 way switch, tuners, etc. The more I play these standard pickups the more I enjoy the sound from this guitar. It is not brittle or too bright. It produces warm trebles and midrange, as well as a good punchy sound on the bass. The sound is very traditional Tele. It may be a combination of these PUs and the heavy ash body?! The PUs have ceramic magnets, not alnico. But this does not impact quality. There are very expensive PUs in very expensive guitars using ceramic magnets. The quality of the sound from a PU does not come from the magnet. This is a fact. In summary, so far so good. I love this guitar.

The MIM models such as this FSR or the Baja are top notch, with the same workmanship and high quality hardware as the American models. In this case, you pay way more for a MIA guitar because of the wages, benefits and overhead costs in the U.S. You are not getting twice or three times the quality when compared to the special editions made in Mexico. They are all of great quality, so why spending more? The cheap MIM guitars have limited quality, but these FSRs are one of the best Fenders I have ever played. Like the other reviewer, I also own US Fenders, and this Tele is one of my favorites. It sounds amazing and plays perfectly. It is well built and will last forever. I know professional musicians who play MIM guitars. They are wise with their money and know quality. Me too! I hope you'll find a good one like mine.

Well, I just got one and couldn't be happier. I've been looking for a butterscotch Tele for some time. At the store, I compared this model to the similar American made which costs three times more. I had cash to get either one, but decided to do a comprehensive comparison before spending my money, which does not grow in trees. By the way, I already own numerous guitars made in the U.S. and Asia. All with excellent workmanship. I always look for quality, not brand names or origin of the plant. The workmanship of both Teles was exactly the same. The neck and fingerboard were identical, so was the fretwork. Really, no difference here and this is critical to playability. The PUs are different but both are good. I was surprised with the quality of the ceramics PU and the sound was pure Tele. The MIM Tele has a two piece body. The U.S. Model has three pieces. I could easily check that through the butterscotch finish. This is a heavy guitar, about 8 lbs, due to the swamp ash body. Very sturdy and provides brighter (not muddy) tones. Hardware was typical in both models but I heard from previous reviews that the pots in this MIM Tele are also good quality CTS. I checked them when I got home and confirmed that the electronics are identical to the U.S. models (CTS pots). Remember, I also have US Teles and Strats. I didn't check the output jack though. Tuners are very good too. In summary, I carefully checked and played both models. They are identically great, but one costs three times more because it is made in the U.S. This was a no brainer to me. I can save the money for another guitar in the future. Yes, I have bad G.A.S. This MIM has the modern C neck (all my Fenders have modern C neck) which is perfect for me, as well as the 9.5" radius and mid jumbo frets. I am comfortable with either medium-jumbo or jumbo frets. Finishing was flawless. This Special Edition Tele from Fender is a winner. No wonder the stores are selling them quickly (even in the US) and I was lucky to be there at the right time. I strongly recommend this guitar to any amateur or professional musician. You can also replace the PUs with whatever you want. What matters is the workmanship which affects playability and Fender did this one right. Kudos to their factory in Mexico!
