« A unique modern classic »Publié le 05/19/11 à 09:23
With the huge double cutaways it is super easy to reach the high frets. The set neck joint also helps because there is no large square heel to get in your way. The neck has a more modern thin shape to it and this makes it very easy to play. The Korean build quality on this thing is amazing. There are no sharp fret ends or uneven frets.
With the p90 pickups in this guitar it is a blues machine. It has the classic p90 sound which blends well with the Telecaster design. P90 pickups give a brighter more transparent sound that humbuckers but are not as bright as Fender single coils. These Seymour Duncan p90s are very quiet and dont have the typical noise you associate with single coils. It being a thinline means there is an open compartment in the body and with the f-hole on the body this give the guitar some more acoustic qualities. The pots can get a bit scratchy sometimes this is the only problem with the sound.
Its surprising that this guitar was discontinued so quickly. This has caused collectors and informed guitar players to snap them up whenever they are available. This is one of the best sounding modern p90 guitars ever produced. If you are looking for a great fender guitar with a different sound and different look the TC-90 may be the way to go (if you can find one).
