Any experience with Mike Gee kustoms

Does anybody have any experience with these guitars. Theyre pretty cheap, but I keep thinking of the old adage "you get what you pay for" . Then I think of the Squire CV guitars and thought that this may be similar and be a great deal for the money.

I've been following this guy for a bit and too am curious about his guitars. He does have a few you tube vids of some of his gits. So far from what I've gathered, which I could be completely wrong but it seems he builds these "customs" with parts he finds at pawn shops and maybe online and refinishes or relics them for that custom look.

I bought a 335 copy made by Mike a few months ago, the black one with a P90 in the bridge. It is built very well and Mike is a nice guy if you ever need to talk with him about guitars - I just called him yesterday with a wiring question and he was very helpful. His pickups are of very good quality, tons better than an Epiphone or anything else in this price range. The action wasn't as low as I know some players fancy it out of the box but I still play it as it came and it suits me very well. I will definitely be installing some Wilkinson tuners though, because the stock ones are typical no-name Chinese and not dependable. I'll be honest in that I bought this guitar because of the name on the headstock and how it looked and I do not regret my purchase at all.

I just bought a used reliced Mike Gee Kustoms Tele. It has a faded and distressed butterscotch body and a beautifully reliced neck, with the wear showing perfectly in the right areas where a player would wear on it. It has six individual bridge saddles, but I could put three brass saddles on it. The hardware looks good and authentic, and the pickups and electronics sound least as good as the Fender Custom Shop tele pickups that I have on one of my tele's! This guitar plays, intonates, and sounds killer,, plugged in and unplugged. Sounds great clean, which I prefer most of the time, and it has that great "Tele SPANK!" Sounds great with a little "Sparkle Drive," too! Plays fast and comfortable. It is light, and would be easy to play a 4 or 5 set night with no sweat. I would prefer this guitar over a lot of the good older Fender Tele's that I've played ... and owned. The Kelton Swade guitars play and sound better than this guitar, and all of the Fenders that I've owned / played. But, Kelton's guitars are more expensive than the Mike Gee Kustoms by about $3100. a guitar. Some of the Fender Custom Shop stuff is even more expensive than that, but given my least with this particular Mike Gee Tele; it would be my "go to" guitar over any of the Fenders. SERIOUSLY! If you are a serious player, and have the money....BUY A KELTON won't regret it! If you don't have the money to do that, but you want a good relic job, and great quality, sound, and utility; buy yourself a Mike Gee Kustom! ...Doc.
