I really like these guitars and a clean median gain setting. I've never found it really useful tone when using this type of guitar with the high gain amplifier. It doesn't really give me the necessary sound and frequencies that would like with a high cranked tube distortion tone. But what it really does well is when you get a good clean tone all the way to a medium low gain tone you can get some great sounds. So if you're playing this guitar with Fender or a Vox amp you will get a great sound thats going to be extremely musical and dynamic. These guitars are a lot of fun to play and if you play something that uses a lot of effects then you guiyar sound will be extremely fluid and dynamic the more you really dig into the strings.
These guitars are American built classic sounding instruments. They have a great sound that will push through most if not all bands mixes. You can find them new for right around $1000 or so which is a great price for an American built telecaster. I recommend this guitar to anyone because it has a great sound and it's great for gigging or recording. It may not be many peoples sound if you're into hard rock or metal but if you like something that's a good clean sound in a dynamic tone and this is a great instrument.
