Traditional Style at an Untraditional Price!Special Note: Pickguard on this model is black -
I received the new guitar today. It is wonderful. Setup out of the box is nearly perfect. It plays and sounds excellent. As usual, the woods used are of the highest quality with excellent tone and sustain. The P90 pickups put the tele-style guitar in a new realm of tones, and it just looks right. I believe the tailpiece assembly is pretty much the same as what Fender uses on the Bullet Squier Hardtail Strats, but they don't bother to route the strings through the body as SX did on this one. Very nice. The fretwork is very professional, and the fretboard has an unusual and very beautiful grain that seems to stand up in the light. It was a little odd that the tophat for the pickup switch that was included is black, instead of white like the pickguard. But that looks good in its own way. The finish is flawless as usual. Personally, I like the fretboard radius on these much better than the 9 inch radius Fender uses on most Telecasters. No complaints at all on this guitar. It's ready for the stage or the studio.
