Having your cake, and eating it...I actually purchased this at a local music shop before it was available from Sweetwater (sorry guys). It literally jumped off of the rack, because of the way it's finished (transparent sunburst accentuates the pine end grain). When I played it, I was really impressed. When I looked at the price, I was blown away. First, it's a Fender, through and through...for less money than some Squiers. Awesome workmanship. Great-feeling neck, and comfortable body (with the gut cut). The most versatile Tele I've ever played, tone-wise. With that split humbucker at the bridge and the Strat pup in the middle, the variations are endless...and they go way beyond the standard Tele twang...which this one delivers too. Can't say enough good things about this instrument. If you're anything like me, you won't be able to stop playing it.

REVIEW UPDATEI' ve had this guitar a few weeks. Installed some Joe Barden pickups and wow!
I have to admit this is one of the best sounding guitars I have ever owned. The tones are amazing. I can go from jazz, country to flat out rock with this guitar. For a pro, pickup changes are a must. This guitar plays and sounds as good as any custom fender can or would. For the money! Just a few upgrades and minor adjustments you will have a home made custom (chinese custom) that is. Give this guitar a try. It looks amazing. The online pictures don't do it justice. All my muscian friends are as amazed how nice it looks and well it plays.
Just sure excitement. Note: The chinese are now making fine quality guitars.
Thanks again Sweetwater

EAT MY WORDSI told my self I would never buy a Chinese guitar. Folks, I am eating my words today and they are tasting real good. Do not under estimate the quality of this guitar. This is one fine instrument. Sweetwater has a fantastic deal on this guitar. I am blown away by the build quality. It is outstanding. A Fender Tele tone with a little something extra. It looks even better in person and plays "Oh So Nice". I am very happy. Thanks Joe.
I would recommend this guitar to anyone.

Favorite Guitar I owntele a start nd a humbucker in a sexy tele style honey burst ooweeee
i love this guitar might not be the lightest it plays like a dream.. screw if it's from China last time i compared this to a Mexican made one it was far more superior. the craftsmanship was tight my only compaint was some buzz on the low E string but thats expected from the slack tunings i play in and that tele sound .. anyways great guitar the tones are pristine and dynamic from pickup to pickup.

Great guitar for intermediate, or guitar hobbyists!I absolutely love this guitar. Great versatility. If you're looking to move up from a beginner level guitar this should be your next purchase. I have no complaints of this guitar at all. It's beautiful and feels great. Purchasing this from Sweetwater was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made haha. Every penny worth it. Be sure to buy a guitar case for this guitar too!
