2009 Custom Telecaster
The Ultimate Country or Blues Guitar
The 2009 Fender American Telecaster
Last year I bought a custom 2009 Fender American Telecaster and I must say that it is the best guitar for country or blues for the money.
I have a fender blues reissue amp and use a digi tech pedal for distortion and sustain, but that telecaster has a great tone and a variety of ranges of sounds right from the factory.
The telecaster has a volume & tone knob and 2 pickups that you can manipulate from the 3 way switch which is the key to getting the correct tone you want without any effects.
If you use the bridge or front pickup for rhythm it has a really nice bluesy tone, the middle position is great for a variety of sounds if just by simply adjusting the tone knob and the lead pickup is really bright and crisp which is ideal for taking a lead or solo.
Several famous guitarist use the Fender Telecaster
Keith Richards - The Rolling Stones
Brent Mason - Nashville Studio Guitarist
James Burton - Elvis Guitarist - Who has his own line of Fender Telecaster's
Luther Perkins - who played with Johnny Cash for awhile and is responsible for the boom chicka boom sound still used in songs today.
And many more ;0)
Being a guitar player now for over 30 years I used to swear by the Fender Stratocaster but now I am a Telecaster man.
I wouldn't recommend it for hard rock or heavy metal but any other genre and the telecaster will do just fine.
Anyway thanks for reading the hub, if you have any questions about guitars you are welcome to drop me a email.
