I got this guitar at a chain called Jim's Music in souther california, 2003. Paid around $700.

The tele's got a really good feel and great clean sound. I have a fender deville tube amp and the sound I get out of the two is amazing. I can even play classical with the tone turned down. I especially like the neck pickup with its dark full sound.

The one thing I don't like about the tele is how crappy its metal distorted sound is. It's perfect for led zeppelin type distortion, but anything harder than that sounds really bad. It is impossible to get any kind of Metallica sound, even with the best distortion pedals.

Quality and construction are great.

Probably near the best electric guitar you can get for any clean music, good for overdrive and light distortion, horrible for metal and punk.
