This is one of those guitars "that I would have lusted after when I was in high school."

It plays great. It's beautifully designed to replicate the old style Telecasters.

The amazing thing is that Leo Fender and his little band of craftsman got it right back in 1952. And for a relatively affordable amount of money you can have one of your very own.

You only live once. You might as well own a really great guitar. Or 30.

I consider myself lucky that I still got one of these Babies since they are discontinued by Fender. I knew exactly what to expect from this guitar sound wise because I am a Tele-Lover for over 30 years. When I heard the sound of the Hot Rod 52 for the first time I was speechless. The bridge pickup gives you the typical Tele vintage sound with a good twang. The neck mini humbucker adds a bluesy touch to the sound variety which in the middle position merges great with the typical Telesound of the bridge PU. This guitar is a keeper. It's worth every Dollar. The neck is smooth as silk and easy to play. One bad thing. The special nitro lacquer finish on the body is very sensitive and will look like road worn very fast if you use the guitar on a regular basis. That doesn't bother me personally but you should be aware of that. A really great guitar.

My review for a '52 reissue,
Nitro finish, beautiful color and the whole "tele" tone of the classics.
Low output but full tone
