1952 copies of pure Tele made in china.

Ash body, U neck profile, switch 3 positions

The guitar arrived well packed, with a cable.

UTILIZATION

Good is a copy of tele therefore qualities and defects of the original ... Body flat as a breadboard, a little lighter than the original (I have a fender baja tele to compare).
The balance is good as it plays up, no flaws. It looks like a mistake there but the dimensions are a little different. As I received it I thought "there is something odd about the proportions" and are superimposed on the 2, the bin body Harley is a bit smaller. Bah ca

SOUNDS

has the sound of a scratching at 120euros. The guitar does not set so high action, poor harmonic trussrod has loosened so much that when one hears claps on the handle. But once settled, it sounds ... it just dja ca. The pickups are very average. Me I bought a replica of Fender Esquire so I completely disassembled, sanded, painted, recovered from mechanical fender, fender bridge and micro fender and ultimately it sounds almost like a fender, but there's more value in its attachments in the guitar

OVERALL OPINION

Good what we expect from a little scratching at 120euros? Probably not a real Fender. However the finish is very correct, the frets are burr wood is very correct, nothing is ca ca 100euros. For the rest of the AC must apply Squier Affinity.
For the price knowing that c'ezt correct Thomann should always take bunddle like that for the same price you 129euros plus 1 string sets EHX, 5 picks, and a 1m cable that's not bad. Given the price I put 7
