General What is your overall opinion of this product? The guitar overall is awesome. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? I can play anything from snappy country twang to mellow blues. The tone feild is great! Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I love the weight and feel of the guitar. The only thing I've had to deal with is the sticky feeling of the laquer on the back of the neck. I found a heavy wax and polish helps. I'm really trying to avoid the steel wool treatment on such a nice instrument. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone is beautiful! The vintage pickups are friendly to the ear. The tone control will allow you snappy Tele sounds to warm vintage ES335 type sounds. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The neck has a beautiful vintage tint and the two tone sunburst over the mahogony is breathtaking! Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I am very pleased with my purchase. Compared to previous guitars, this will probably be my "go to" axe for sure. Playability How was the action out of the box? The action was great right out of the box however, I like it close! I did change the vintage 3 saddle bridge to the 6 saddle and lower the action. The thing is just sweet now. To each his own. I make every guitar "mine".
Awesome tone and weight

General Your general opinion of this product. Very Lightweight so I can easily play all night. Great tone! Nice if there were more color options. The neck has a good shape and action set up is really good right out of the box. The finish on the neck is a little "sticky" for my taste so I'll probably sand it down some. Overall a great tele! Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Really good Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Awesome ... a little fatter than a standard Tele but twangy on the bridge pickup
