I love how it sounds!
I bought this guitar less than a year ago and honestly I'm still struggling a bit to get comfortable with its thick and narrow neck (I've been playing a SG standard for 15 years in a row so that's a big change, guess you know what I mean). But about the sound... I just love it! The center position gives me the clean tone I like the most so far, and the bridge coil is more or less the classic bright tele sound we all know. The humbucker alone is really dark and I find a bit difficult to fit it in the mix with other instruments, but it also has a very unique warm and mellow beauty, a lot different from the neck humbuckers you find on les paul or sg guitars. With overdrives, distortions etc I find it very versatile so I think this is a really cool guitar (mine's a japanese version so I guess an american model could sound even better!)
My Hellacaster from Hell!!
I got this Fender Telecaster off of Musicians Friend in early 2000's. I switched out the Fender Wide Range humbucker and the single coil for a 59 model SH-1 in the neck, and a EMG-81 in the bridge. Sounds fucking awesome \m/(-_-)\m/
Tele Custom 72
Versatil y única a la vez. Puede sonar similar a Les Paul con la pastilla del mastil sin perder el sonido clásico de una Telecaster por la agresividad de la pastilla del puente. Juntas, forman un sonido unico. Es perfecta por tener un sonido vintage, el ataque de una tele y los graves de una les paul. Ademas, comodidades como la llave selectora de pastillas en la parte superior y una escala comoda. Es la tele perfecta. El sonido de un single coil para tocar riffs con quintas es super agresivo y filoso. Y uses la pastilla que uses, no se parece a ninguna otra.
