    "The Thinline...Buy One by Robbie Hassett"

    Sound:
    The sound of this so far is amazing, ringing out on this guitar, it sings like crazy...due to the f-hole really. I got it set up with 10-52 guage strings because I tune to Drop Db. So I needed a thicker E string, but it sounds great. I play in a band that is very much like Circa Survive, Alexisonfire, The Receiving End of Sirens...and it pulls off the sound well. The pickups are wide range humbucking pick ups, BUT ARE NOT HUMBUCKERS so keep that in mind. It's a thinner sound than a gibson would give but..if you want that type of sound..no Fender will give you that. I love this guitar for how it looks, what it sounds like, and what it is. It's so classy looking. I'm playing through a Marshall JCM2000 TSL 100. It sounds great through that, I have to keep the gain up a little higher than when I'm playing my Gibson Double Cutaway, but again it's a great sound. I haven't played it long, something that kinda stinks, is the size of the widerange humbucking pickups. They're a little bigger than normal humbuckers, and are screwed in a different place than default humbuckers. So basically, if you switched out the pickup for a humbucker, you have to either drill holes in your pickguard, and the space on the pickguard is gonna be bigger than the pickup...meaning there's gonna be a huge gaping space on the top and bottom of the pick up. OR you can just have a custom pickguard made....but so far I really like the pickups on it.
    Feature:
    It gives you a gigbag..gigbags suck. So i'm just gonna buy a hardshell case, no biggie
    Ease of Use:
    Fender's are Fenders, it's in the name. You plug in and you rock.
    Quality:
    only taking a point off of this cause it's made in mexico, which originally turned me off. But it's price says it all. mexican made telecaster standards around here are around $350. this mexican made Thinline is $680. It's one of the better made Mexican guitars. I haven't gigged with it yet but I will be within the month, and I've seen some of my friends touring bands with this guitar...and they love it.
    Manufacturer Support:
    Never delt with fender, but I figure why give it a low grade if I've never had to deal with them before.
    Value:
    Definitely a steal, worth the money, just on Classic look alone. It's a guitar that really sings.
    The Wow Factor:
    I am recently obsessed with it, so it's sex appeal is very crazy with me.
    Overall:
    I'm not sure I just bought this guitar, but hey, reviews can only help you to a certain point. Go out and play one through whatever amp you normally use...and see if you like it. Definitely give it a chance. Another telecaster, with a similar sound, is the Telecaster Deluxe, I believe it's red and it has a Stratocaster headstock on it. Same pickups, very nice guitar.

    "i take it back, this guitar sucks"

    Sound:
    Wow, what a crappy guitar. i've know had it for around half a year, the pickups are crap. wide range humbuckers are not humbuckers, they're single coils, but really noise ones. the microphonics on them are just horrendous.
    Feature:
    crap just crap
    Ease of Use:
    hmmm maybe i could use it if the bridge wasn't misaligned and my strings were straight down my neck, so that my high e wouldn't fret out.
    Quality:
    worst guitar i ever bought, wish i never bought it. fender mexican made guitars are utter crap
    Manufacturer Support:
    didn't help me whatsoever
    Value:
    this is worth like, nothing, this guitar, was manufactured incorrectly, i can't even redrill the bridge since it is only slightly off
    The Wow Factor:
    terrible, by an american
