This is a chinese made tele, however they've limited the run so that each one that's made is more focused and not so mass produced, thus the quality of these guitars is superior and meant to be on par with american made guitars.

UTILIZATION

Pretty nice, surprisingly very very light too, and I've tried a few models, all of them are quite light, I likey!

upper fret access is not what the tele's about so if you want to spend most of your time there you won't enjoy it. The ergonmics aren't there either, the tele was the first electric guitar type to be made thus the ergonomics weren't thought about the first round.

Generally it's just like your typical 21 fret tele with the 2 pickups and a 3 way.



SOUNDS

For a tele, it sounds like a tele. Damn good. Clean, bright, twangy, all that country twang you'd ever want is in this tele.

The stock pickups are amazingly clean and deliver it! Classic signature tele sound!

You want another type of sound you'd better start looking into aftermarket pickups, but as is, and what it's originally designed for, it gets the job done for anybody wanting to play clean/blues/jazz/country stuff definitely!

OVERALL OPINION

I think this series was underrated! Definitely! Maybe because the options were so limited? Only 3 finishes, with specific neck woods etc. The 21 fret thing always kills me with fender guitars I never knew why they did that, it's just so uneven and I'd always feel better with at least a 22 fret neck.

The quality is great though, the build is good, every one of these I've seen has been really consistent, the fretwork is VERY good, the neck is perfect, the finish is great and I see no flaws with the binding anywhere on the body.

And it's light weight. What more does anybody need? I actually think these are better than any of the mexican stuff coming out of the factory. It just seems to have been thought out more, with more effort put into these models. I guess the pickups are what would be lacking but even in that department it's quite decent. Not super versatile for every kind of genre, but definitely good for the genres mentioned previously. Of course, they're not noiseless, cause then THAT'D be too good to be true.
