Summary: I received the guitar in the mail and played it at a job the next day. It seems to be a good Mexican guitar. The sound came through strong and the Humbucker gives it a distinct, chunky sound. It is not as heavy as my American Tele. I lowered the action which is no big deal. I am happy with this guitr for the price. It came in a well padded Fender gig bag. I bought a guitar case but I believe the bag would handle the job.
Summary: I've had this guitar for 5 years and I am still very pleased. It has great sound, feel and flexibility. I play blues, jazz, and rock, but mostly gospel at church. I can use this guitar to flow with the keyboard and drum so easily. It can be mellow or hard crunching whatever the venue calls for. I've played acoustic guitar for over 20 years and only dabbled in electric guitars here and there.
Summary: This is now my go to guitar. It plays great. Has great tone. The neck seems to have a bit more arch than newer models. I'm not real fond of the tuners. I may replace them. I bought the black one. I think it is beautiful.

Its not that ...
Pros: The neck is perfect, no stretching and very comfortable
Excerpt: "There are several reasons why I would recommend this guitar as against its main competitors. 1. For the beginner guitarist it is an ideal choice. It is easier to master the fingering of the tele than with many acoustic guitars. 2. It is light and portable, especially compared with the Les Paul. It lacks Les Paul's round tone though. 3. No fancy switches, whammy bars, or multiple tone controls means that it's an ideal rhythm guitar. 4. Bridge ...
Pros: Great cutting sound, solid and practical
Cons: Small number of frets mean that it's not ideal for complicated solos .
