Johnson Guitars JT-800
The country of manufacture is not specified. Considering the price, the Southeast Asia is a (yet) been put to ...

21 frets on a typical round "telecasterien" that some disgruntled qulifieront of "pickaxe handle." Ibanez lovers, go your way ... rosewood fingerboard on maple end. Alder body. 2 micros simple style "tele".
Plaque is a 3-layer, the paint is high quality ...

Vintage telecaster bridge, 3 bridges, they have not crushed! Mechanical oil bath to keep the agreement honestly.

1 vol. by mike, a general tone, the TV in all its simplicity.

Important note: micro EMG are licensed, like that Squier made with S. Duncan, therefore, nothing to say. I put "8" for the bridge "foutage of mouth".

UTILIZATION

The handle is comfortable in my opinion. Ie it may seem thicker to mimine female shredders and how to say ... But, this thickness appears to influence the sound. I can not explain how, but in a positive way. [remember that the great leo (fender) ensured that the massive head of the precision bass and jazz influenced sound sweats ...]

Access to the most acute is not easy but it is a tele ...

Ergonomics is a tele, meaning that you play on a beam;)

The sound is terrible. Of course, the simple microphones are sensitive to hum and play in front of his computer by following Guitar Pro creates buzz. But the quality is there EMG. The output level is good, and his Blues-Rock is there. Nasal and aggressive on the neck pickup, the sound becomes softer by mixing the two. The neck pickup delivers compelling are clear. With a good distortion and equalization can be quite consider playing the Hard or of Metal. Not death, eh! Not exaggerate, the tele is a versatile instrument.

In terms of use, finally, it should be noted that this instrument is truly unplayable "as is" in repeats or live. You will need to unscrew the plate and 8 screws 4 screws easel in order to proceed to the shielding of the beast. Not complicated, the ground wire under the bridge behind carelessly. Next, glue + aluminum foil, it works!

SOUNDS

I'm not a scratch Emeritus and plans tapping the teeth leave me cold. There you will have a good sound like "Springsteenien" or "Keith Richardien". Roots, what ...

I play on an old Gibson amp-Lab of the 70ies or my HH bass overdrive / distortion, chorus or phaser slightly. It sounds old blues-rock ... I love.

No effect, the clear sound is very good, smooth ... The pickups are really good.

OVERALL OPINION

Cons:
- The handle that will not suit all hands.
- Bridge said "vintage" to put a piece of sheet ridiculous.
- The buzz of microphones and finish do it yourself: the micro cavities are not shielded.
- No logo "Fender";)
Assets:
- Good EMG, Johnson is still a brand known for its dobros.
- The typical "tele"
- Ridiculous price (less than € 200 in Germany only)
- Color type Fender

Conclusion: it is less than a Fender Mex, but much better than the first price in Squier and it will type in the Squier "Vintage Modified". Not the same price ...

The notes I have assigned are of course linked to the low price of the beast, not a comparison with a tele exit Custom Shop Fender ...

COMPARISON IS NOT RIGHT!
