Title says it all.
Not really a review. More of an overview. You’re never going to get a true review from a retailer.
Anyway I'm starting to GAS for that red one....
Actually, yeah, when I hit post I had a nagging feeling over my word choice. Just tried to change the title with a strike-though, but couldn't, so did something else.
But, I have heard Lee Anderton express quite serious criticisms before (for a retailer), so not so sure in this case.
Yeah, they sound great there, but they don't sound like that when they arrive here.
Operator error I suppose.
That Vintage 60s Modified is gorgeous and it sounds pretty good in DP's hands.
The lake placid blue one looks darker than in the pics. Too bad.
And sorry to be the one to moan about this...but 950Euro for a mexican Fender that doesn't even come with a hardcase?
Inflation, higher production/material/labor costs than a decade ago, etc...I get that. But since they first came out, the classic 60s/50s teles and strats have gone up in price by nearly 100%, with no actual improvements or upgrades to justify it. Or at least that's the case here in Europe, no idea what the situation is in the US...
Hmm they all sound like telecasters, just like the ones they made before
Hmmm the 50s in fiesta red is starting haunting me...
I am going to wait roughly 12 yrs before one of those blue Custom teles comes up on the used market, and then it will be mine.
No! Mimmo! Let’s not crack! Repeat: I don’t need another tele – I don’t need another tele – I don’t need another tele … Inhale…
(awww it’s not working)
I just played the Fiesta Red 50's one at a Guitar Center. It was great. As long as you're not bothered by poly, I don't see how anyone would need anything more than this.
Of course it doesn't hurt that I LOVE the specs: 52-style U neck (felt fantastic) and 7.25" radius with smaller frets. Everything looked great, except I had a problem with the jack; at first, the cord wouldn't go it, so I imagine that needs some adjustment. But great sound and feel.
I don't know if I'd buy this new instead of a Baja 50's used. I think I'd spring for a Baja 50's if I could find one, just to save $300 or so. But if you've got to buy new, this is great.
I'd like to hear more from the new WRHB style pups. Fender has a history of flubbing them, apart from the originals.
Anyone have feedback on the pickups?
I head of but never listened to the twisted tele and the bridge pickup description if pretty vague on Fender’s site. I have no problem swapping them but plan to get the butterscotch blonde one and hoping to get a sense of whether I should research pickups ahead of time or not
I don't know about this line but the Player Series is the new version of the MIM Standard line and there are improvements/upgrades.
Mmmm, the only + thing that i find here, is that Fender with this model and American Vintage ones, brings back the fiesta red. Maybe one of the best Fender color of all time.
nothing new to me. more with different name
The Players have alnico pickups instead of ceramics.
My absolute favourite Fender colour ditto.
