Fender Telecaster Reissue ’52 Custom Shop – Test / Review

Fender Telecaster Reissue ’52 Custom Shop – Test / Review
Guitar review by Have Guitar

My partner in crime (when it comes to a fascination of guitars!) Klas came around with a surprise the other day. I kinda suspected what it was from the tweed case he had in his car and lo and behold: it was Fender Telecaster Reissue 52 Custom Shop from 2014! It had a little relic from the factory but not so much that it was disturbing (me not being a fan of factory relicing really!).

So, we spent a couple of hours playing this Tele and man; was I impressed! And so was Klas as he hadn’t that much time in it. It just sounded great with any profile we loaded up in my Kemper, from clean worshiptones to full metal higain stuff! And so we decided to make test/review video of this Fender Tele and to my delight Klas also joined in on the video – very fun to have someone to talk to during the video and I hope you’ll like that too!

I have been looking around for the spec’s of this particular guitar but the closest I’ve come across is the general spec’s of a ’52 Telecaster and as this should follow that pretty closely here it is:

Body: Ash
Neck: One-Piece Bolt-On Maple
Number of Frets: 21
Position Inlays: Black Dot
Radius: 7.25″
Pickups: Two Single-Coil Pickups with Volume and Tone Controls
Switching: 3-Position Switch
Bridge: 3-Saddle Strings-Through-Body Bridge with Brass Saddles
Pickguard: 1-Ply Black

For the sound we’re playing through my Kemper, hooked up to my Focusrite soundcard via SPDIF (stereo) and recorded in Reaper. I have used profiles from the following profilers: ReampZone, Live Ready Sound, SinMix, Mattfig, TMS Profiles and ToneJunkie. Tried to pick a varied selection of sounds from clean to metal to give you wide overview of what the Tele is capable of.

So, I certainly hope you like this video and feel free to support my channel by a subscription! And as always a Very Big Thanks goes out to all you who subscribe – Thank You!
