Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? As well made as any new Fender. Not the finese of say, a PRS (I own a McCarty) but very well done. The hardtail bridge is nice, adjusts easy and provides good sustain. General Your general opinion of this product. Great primary Axe. Can be sweet or nasty. Bridge PU setting is outstanding clean or dirty. Has a primarily Telecaster sound but "meatier". Pretty well made. Nice case. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Pups are semi hot and lean toward the warmer side but make no mistake, it still has the Tele sounds with a bit of the hard edge taken off. TV/Filtertrons are one of my favorite (used of my Gretsch 6121 as well) and work extremely well with the Tele design.This could be your primary guitar or add it to the stable. It is unique and has it own voice however instatly recognizable as a Tele. Perhaps a bit pricy for what you get but a heck of a lot less than a Custom Shop. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Satin neck back is nice. Good sunburst finish.
