This is "the" Telecaster, while serious guitarist should have one :)

The tuners are vintage point locking mechanism mounting the old ropes.
The bridges of origin are three in number, much like a bass.
This is a bit limited at the setting accuracy.

The guitar comes with another more modern bridge, six bridges, I hesitate a bit to mount it.
After all, so many excellent titles were recorded like that.

The guitar comes in a stunning tweed pouch with orange wig inside, I love it.


The handle is thick, the frets are thin, it is a particular game that needs to be done, but try to adopt it.

The polyurethane varnish is a bit sticky at first, but it happens over time.

From my side, I regularly wipe the handle with a soft cloth, and this aspect has faded.


The bridge pickup is hell, it instantly sounds legendary Keith Richards.

The neck pickup is perfect in its clear, at once sweet and slamming according to the intention you put into it, the famous twang is there.

I changed mine in rewiring the modern version because of origin, the neck pickup did not have the correct tone.

I play on a Cornford Carrera, the sounds are just sublime.


I'm afraid of not being objective good, I love this guitar, it's my number one guitar, I do not never leave.
