FDP Forum / Fender Guitars: Telecasters / Fender Professional Telecaster made my year!

I just purchased my first Fender Telecaster, which is the Professional model. After playing about 10 Tele's I picked the one that sounded best and had the neck that was the most comfortable.

I was a big American Strat player for soo many years. Had this misunderstanding that Tele's were just best for country and they had that big twang. But when you hear Led Zep I, Roy Buchanan, some Jeff Beck, Keef, Robben Ford, and the Boss, you find the Telecaster is like a punchier Strat that is great clean and with some distortion.

I changed the strings which came with 09's to 10's. This removed the slight ice pick sound that the high E string had. It also provided a fuller sound, especially with the neck pickup.

The guitar is lighter than my strat, the neck and frets are wonderful to play on, it looks and sounds great with all three toggle settings. Right now this is my favorite guitar over my Les Paul and Strat for my blues/jazz playing as well as worship music l(Hillsong).
