Members MrMunky Posted February 2, 2007 Members Share Posted February 2, 2007 I've always dug Strat and Tele style guitars. That said, ever since I got my very first electric guitar (a Fender mexican strat), I've been repulsed by instruments made by Fender. I have played lots and lots of Fenders, and I've found them to vary considerably. The ones that stand out as really great instruments tend to be few and far between. I also tend to think you pay a pretty significant premium for guitars with the Fender name. So as a general matter, I've avoided them. But I got a pretty decent deal on one of these 52 Reissue Teles with the "Thin skin" nitro lacquer. I don't care about the finish so much, but it was a good deal. It showed up yesterday and it smokes. I'm thoroughly impressed. It doesn't have any of the odd manufacturing defects that you see in a lot of production Fenders; the neck fits firmly in the pocket and hasn't drifted anywhere; the frets are well dressed and the neck is straight; the finish is even and attractive and not sticky or cheap looking or feeling.
