Tonal Evaluation

This guitar might be Fiesta Red, but make no mistake: this ain't no party, this ain't no disco, and this Tele is not fooling around! This serial is a very dry, crisp-sounding guitar with exceptional string-to-string balance and two very differently-voiced pickups. The bridge position is aggressive, but there's less note bloom and more fundamental in the trebles than most Telecasters, so it's transparent without losing that signature Tele bite. That clarity and this serial's innate evenness make the bridge pickup a country picker's dream! The neck pickup is quite dark for a Tele, and it made jazzy stuff sound so good that I had to dust off an old Les Paul/Mary Ford tune! Again, this guitar's clear, even voice allows the player to hear every note of every fancy jazz chord even with the tone knob rolled off--a truly remarkable feat! Through a dirty amp, all sorts of beautiful even-order harmonics pop out of the speaker cone, so you can get some really great rock tones, too! Anyone seeking a Tele that can cover all the bases should check this serial out!
