What is your overall opinion of this product?
I bought this from AMS about 9 months ago so the honeymoon period is over and I can objectively review it. I have several other guitars ranging from cheap foreign made ones to high end USA made works of art. I bought this looking for something in the middle, a quality instrument that doesn't make me nervous to take out of the house and will cover my preferred styles of southern/classic rock, blues and country and it delivered fabulously. The "meaty" pickups are great for blues and classic rock but may lack some of that classic jangle. But a pickup swap would be easy enough if that's what you desire. I compared this to the American Standard Tele at my local store and found that I prefer the more classic lines and hardware or the American Special. The sound however is definitely more "modern". If you need a jack of all trades guitar this is definitely worth a look.
