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.
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.
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.
Summary: An excellent guitar, perhaps a bit too pricey for a very first timer but ideal for someone who wants to move on from their old "squire" guitar. There are no fancy buttons or nobs and the design looks simple but has a classic feel behind it.
Pros: The neck is perfect, no stretching and very comfortable
Summary: 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.
Pros: Great cutting sound, solid and practical
Cons: Small number of frets mean that it's not ideal for complicated solos .
