Interesting concept, but needs tweaking.

Hard to beat Fender
Your general opinion of this product.
I've seen and played custom guitars similar to this guitar before. The Telecaster U-Shape neck is very comfortable and easy to play. This guitar just looks cool! The high-output Enforcer pick-up in the bridge is capable of producing anything from sweet and mellow to full-out shred! Activate the coil tap on the bridge pick-up and try out your Braid Paisley/Chicken Pickin' licks! The neck pick-up offers that familiar snappy 50's Fender sound which is perfect for blues and country. There were really only 2 things about this guitar that I didn't care for; the rotary pick-up switch and the lack of a tone control. But this would be a pretty easy guitar to mod. I'd prefer a 3-position toggle switch (top mounted like a Les Paul would be ideal) and a tone control. I've done other Tele mods too using concentric pots; allowing both volume and tone adjustment per each pick-up. This guitar plays really nice, and has a lot of potential!
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
The Tele U-Shape neck has a very comfortable feel and it's fun to play
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
How did the stain or paint job look?
The finish looks pretty good. I couldn't find any flaws.
How was the action out of the box?
Guitar may need to be adjusted to your liking, but the neck feels very good. The guitar is easy to play, and the frets are pretty smooth.
