This Guitar beat my expectations, Between the pickups which deliver either a Tele traditional sound to a Strat sound and everything in-between has blown me away. This plays like a much more costly instrument. I love the neck, and as for the body and gold plated hardware this Guitar BLASTS.

this guitar is a remarkable piece of engineering from a player's perspective. This guitar, unlike many other attempts at making artists commeritive editions actually is something more than a fancy paint job put on the old same old guitar. The design of this guitar is meant for one thing throughout the form, fit and function of this instrument and that is that it was built to be played hard in truly any style of music
i've been playing since I was 8 years old and there are some days when you play and you think, well that really went well and other days when you wondered if you had ever touched a guitar before cause everything was such a strain. With this guitar evertime you play it you'll amaze yourself.
The 5 way switch on this baby makes this guitar scream like a wild cat although it can also settle into the time honored traditional twang of a Telecaster. This guitar will replace my other Telecaster as i dont know if i want to deal with the weight of my old one. This Telecaster would be worth it at twice its price. the neck is designed for speed and ease of fingering from the first fret to the very last fret. I absolutley love this instrument and I cant imagine anything anyone could want this guitar to do that this instrument does not do well.
The finish along with the gold hardware and pearl tuners make for as wonderful a sight as this guitar sounds. Anyone who invests their money in this guitar will not be disappointed in this instrument.
