    Surf Green Tone Machine

    Beautiful flawless finish. Near perfect setup out of box. Plays better than some American Standard Teles I have played. Great blues and classic rock tones from the Fideli'Tron pickups.

    After the one month honeymoon

    We all love our guitars for the first month... I waited to post this review after playing my Cab through various amps and recording with it. It's killer.. It wakes up the wooden quality of Old Tweed amps and adds sparkle .. Sings through a Modded Blues Jr. (Humbodlt) -- KILLS with my 57 Ampeg Jet.

    I love the pickups especially Middle and Neck... Neck has a Jazzy sound but still has a hint of sparkle...

    I replaced the Pick Guard with a three ply Black to match my Black Cab.. A cheap cosmetic upgrade..

    The single Volume control.. needs to be wide open all the time... rolling back makes this guitar muddy fast... The next feels chunkier than my Nashville -- although the specs are close... took tiny bit of getting used to

    The Guitar arrived from Sweetwater set up pretty well... which is nice...

    I have an assortment of quality guitars, and I find myself reaching for this Cabronita 50% of the time...

    Recording? I recorded direct using Logic and amp modeling... SUPER a sharp comparison to the Reverend Pete Anderson Hollow Body for Rhythm -- A very nice contrast ...

    Lastly Really a value... I have no urge to drop TV Jones Pups in... I do have an urge to replace the nut to 1.650....

    Best Guitar I have owned

    After a good setup, I can't believe how good this sounds and plays. I own a PRS and Gibson but wanted a guitar with these types of pickups. Since I love Telecasters and after a ton of research, I decided to go with the Cabrontia. It is, hands down, my favorite guitar I have ever played. The sound is full and cover a lot of space. It has a bright and growly character that Teles normally have but the richness and full bodied sound of the TV Jones (Gretsch guitars) have. I think it is a must have in your guitar Arsenal!

    Excellent guitar. The 2nd tele I've ever owned, and the 4th Fender overall. The neck is flawless, a bit thicker than some Fender necks but in a very good way. I got the floor model and it seemed untouched. the pickups has a great warmth to them, it sounds like a great marriage of a tele and a pro jet. I love the color, love the small pickguard. The string spacing is a little odd, the high E can slip off, that's the only thing keeping it from being 5 stars.

    For the price, it's a steal. I would buy another one immediately if mine was stolen.
