General What is your overall opinion of this product? Was about to purchase the 52 RI, when I came across this guitar. I was impressed with the quality right out of the box and the tone and playability is superb. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Top of the line. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? I like the neck and love the finish and feel of the fingerboard. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The pickups are vintage, but you get the added gain in the bridge with the pickup built into the guitar. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint job was flawless. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Great value for a Signature guitar. Playability How was the action out of the box? Loved the action, right out of the box, stays in tune, and intonation seems right on.
Amazing tone machine

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? The quality of mine was perfection. Fit and finish were excellent - action was perfect right out of the box. Beautifully made. General Your general opinion of this product. Beautiful Telecaster with amazing tone. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Like all telecasters - this has a wide range from mellow to bright. I love tele's for this reason - you can pull most any tone out of a telecaster. That's why so many major players use tele's and some of the greatest songs ever recorded were on a tele. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Amazing finish - nitro over ash thin skin with a little wood grain showing. A beautiful, beautiful guitar to look at and play.
