I recently purchased a new telecaster guitar not fender I have a fender but was curious about this now line. I ordered a Harbley Benton Telecaster. They are not well know in USA because they have no supplier here. They are well know in Germany where they hail from. A company called Thomann. Some compare the Lower models with the Squoer Classic Vibe model. I tried to TE 20 model with is a standardseries. They have deluxe line also. One which I love is the TE 70 Black Paisley. Cost is very affordable. My TE 20 telecaster in sunburst was 84 dollars not counting shipping . The TE 70 Paisley model is 144 dollars. During pandemic DHL droppee ball ok them delivering. Thomann switched to UPS Express which gets it to US In about a week. They are good quality guitars. Mine had a damaged tuner in shipping. I called them snd they offered a refund towards new purchase or a complete refund back to my account and I get to keep the guitar. I have alread made the repair and it isnt noticeable. I set it up, put on new DAddairio strings and started playing. I hate to say it but I'm actually reaching for this Harley Benton more than my fender. It feels great in hand and the neck is smooth and fast. Appearance is phenomenal. Fit and finish. I look at it when I walk by and immediately want to play it. The headstock s VERY close to the Fender telecaster. It is loud and well balanced string to string. Get online and google Thomann and it will come up. Browse the website and check these prices out. Good luck if u get one. You will not regret it.
