guitar made in Indonesia, with U.S. mail.
Standard Telecaster bridge with 6 brass saddles vintage type.
one piece maple neck, maple fingerboard reported
body in a block of ash
22 frets, 2 pickups straight pins individually adjustable in height
1 volume well and without progressive loss of acute phase 1 tone (slightly less than the volume though), a micro switch 3 positions

I put 8 because no gig bag ...


handle: One of the highlights for me who am usually pretty disgusted by the sleeves of Telecaster. it is C-shaped, the satin finish is very fast and very nice, the frets are wide enough and not too high, which makes the game fast. Access to the 22nd cargo without problem (just manhood anyway because of the thickness of the body)
The ash body 1 block, it is critical to sound quality (+ see below), induces the failure of this guitar: its weight

I put 8 because of the weight justly (as heavy as my Les Paul is saying!). Without this fault I would have put 9 without hesitation on the quality of materials and finishes.


Sound is one of the highlights: ash + maple fingerboard, there is the pleasure of old Telecasters with the banging on the very bridge pickup, the neck pickup, but still quite clear round. The output level of these microphones is higher than conventional television microphones, one gains in potato to saturate a crunch amp and get very bright, but yet we keep a great sensitivity to blow the pick, very good dynamics, a treat the game with fingers.
In conclusion, the TV sound with a beautiful grain, ideal for, country, pop, blues, funk and even jazz, the microphones also allow an incursion into the muscular blues-rock, metal but not all the same!


I've had a month and I can not find fault with him!
With this model, versatility and character are not contradictory.
Overall I found the quality / price staggering!
I remake that choice without hesitation: I tried Mex Telecasters and U.S., and the only one that appeared above me was the Reissue 52 to more than 1600 €: no comments ...
Now the question is: how will it age and how my back will bear ...? appointment in a few years.
