I've finally completed my goal of owning the "trio". A Fender Strat, Gibson Les Paul and now this Fender Telecaster. The Telecaster has a punchy slightly heavy sound that, from my perspective and generalization, lands between the Strat and the Les Paul. The quality of this American Professional Tele is top of the line. It plays great and sounds great. The action out of the box is low, which is what I prefer. Sam Ash was great to work with.
