It's a thinline tele, giving the notes a lot of space to play with. Telecasters sometimes need a bit of 'umph' to drive them when fitted with single coils, however this is fitted with Tex-Mex pickups which are slightly hotter than your American Standard's. Still having the lovely clean tones but gives you more space to drive up.
One of the advantages of being a thinline is that it's light. When you've been standing in a gig for an hour, the weight really does make it easy to stand, it's the same with travelling between gigs, and that's great.
A mexican tele, it still sounds incredible and adds something different to the tele range fender offer. Would defintely recommend buying this guitar.
