These are very expensive guitars so they should feel and sound suburb. Well they absolutely do that in spades. these guitars sound just phenomenal. to my ears. I mean the tone is basically the same as any other Fender telecaster but the feel is much different and that will constitute a change in tone. Ho I get to that conclusion is this...when you get the "right" feeling guitar then music seems to flows from your playing a lot more than a cheaper guitar would. So you tend to give it a little bit more soul and dynamic. So in turn you will get a better tone. Not than there is anything different about the tone of the guitar but just in how you approach the plate....to use a baseball term. I absolutely love the way this guitar sounds and even more how it looks. The vintage aged white is just a sharp looking color for this instrument.
These guitars are not for the cheap. you can pick them up for right at around $4300. Ouch that is a lot of money for a guitar. I wouldn't pay that much but many people would. I would prefer a custom Charvel over this guitar and I would save about half that much money. So this is the kind of guitar a guy would buy to show off it his man cave and that is about it. Not a players guitar because I would never gig with a $4300 guitar.
