This Tele is a reminder of what a good deal Fenders Japanese made guitars are. The quality is head and shoulders above the Mexican products, often approaching or even equaling that of their American counterparts with a great deal more consistency than the Mexican version. She's is ready to play with ease having had a recent pro setup and the vintage pickups have nice sets of balls while retaining that vintage twang. And she has a Bigsby for those country pickers in the audience. A very nice all around Tele.
