I've had this guitar for just over 3 years now. This beast of an instrument has been my primary guitar for the majority of my gigs in the past years. This is beacuse this guitar has a very smooth (although glossy) neck, is carved in the back for easy comfort, and is an all around great rock guitar. I use this mainly in my Pop/Punk band, but I have used this guitar for anything from Metal to Jazz. The only reason this one is not 5 stars is because the pickups are just not the best. If you are looking at buying this instrument, be prepared to probably upgrade your pickups as well. They are great for distorted tones, but they are muddy ad unclear when it comes to cleans. This guitar is an amazing purchase for anyone who is looking for a Tele style guitar, that can get those beefy, chunky tones. Overall, definitely recommend.
I've had this guitar since I was 16. I used it on almost every song on my first album & I try to put it in every song I record (even if it's just one chore strike). I love this guy; one of my heroes is Deryck Whibley of Sum 41. I loved the telecaster he used & decided I wanted one just like his. So after hours of trying different ones I found this one. It's got an amazing, classic sound to it. Though I do love the punch you get when you distort it. I've used it at almost every show I've played & plan on using it for years to come.
