Everything you would expect from a professional instrument; sustain, good intonation, good quality pieces. When you change the strings you notice that every part is well finished, nothing is left to casualties. The best guitar for all kinds of genre. I play indie rock and it suits perfect with a good reverb, or delay pedal.
The fender telecaster has sound, playability and feels that have survived since the beginning of the solid body guitar history, this is an insurance of great quality. The sound of the Tele can be heard across all decades, from the 50s to present, and this standard model is worthy of this legacy.
The best word i could use to describe this guitar is potential, being the standard its easy to change parts with any after market tele parts (of which are many in stores), feature that is great if you want to create your own version of the telecaster
