The Tele 52 is what is more simple in the electric guitar ... even if Esquire is even simpler:
- A body with 2 pickups (it's almost too much, no?)
- Without a joystick button reported
- 21 frets
- A 3-bridge jumpers
- A switch and 2 knobs

Everything is basic, bolt-on neck was thought to create efficient and above all extremely simple. The guitar should be easy to fix, easy to build. The Tele 52 is therefore a plank, simply.
Every note is conceivable in this sense: the 3 as 10. It all depends on personal taste.
I am very sensitive to this simplicity so effective. It's a guitar plug and play as the English say. I love this dirty side, especially if the selected elements, as on this 52 are of quality.
The bridge takes the road, Mecas are good and keep the agreement, the microphones and electric do their job.


UTILIZATION

The handle is good for me .... It may offend some, because of its shape and its consequent sticky varnish. This inconvenience disappears after a few hours.
Ergonomics is correct, it's a Tele again, I invite you to reread the first paragraph. Nothing embarrassing in body shape or even access to treble.
Subjectively, I love this shape, the handle, but objectively, this can interfere with the love of comfort.
The guitar is light in the 3 kilos sth, which is very pleasant.

The finishes are best ur my role model, but I've seen that had nasty problems connecting sleeve. So beware.

SOUNDS

When empty, this sounds fully Tele 52, she's alive, brilliant but still surprisingly warm, despite the species of wood used: Ash body, maple for the whole race.
Leave the wood used in confidence, the body is usually in 2 parts. The veining is also pleasing to the eye. If we can combine sound and aesthetic pleasure is the holy grail.

So warm, but the sustain is correct and no more. It is at this level in the middle range, surpassing still handily many guitars more or less expensive it.
I also think that what sustain good enough is directly related to the construction of the guitar, the selected species, etc.: it's a Tele, not a SG.

Sustain correct, but his power in the dynamic and very impressive.
Each note sounds again to empty fully, including bends, and even in very sharp treble.
Once connected, the original pickups highlight the beautiful: in the easel perfect twang, slamming, singular, sharp (but with sufficient dose of this safe, serious, which avoids rendering discomfort) in the neck position and a its pretty round, dynamic, easily flattered by his ear sweet ... it seems we taste a vanilla cream.
The intermediate is very nice, with this dominance in the high frequency medium.
Note that all of the guitar looks seriously at high frequencies ...

Fully performed, this Tele is a dream, even if more sustain would have been even better! We can not have it all at once ...


OVERALL OPINION

Played last few months, this guitar is fun ... but expensive. Probably too expensive in the end: in this sense, the value seems to me pretty bad, even if this guitar will make its owner very happy fan of Tele. This guitar is a Tele, so it must be taken like that, with all that that means it's a guitar made for twanguer.
Compared with Standard U.S., the 52 is typed, the handle is a wonder: she surpasses me in that MUST be a Tele ... namely a crude instrument.
The guitar itself deserves the absolute best score, even if only for its effectiveness and genius of this move, but its price of around 1700 euros in my opinion is abused, precisely because of the fact that Tele guitar should remain an economic (price you pay for 2 sticks)
