You can find more info here

I am thinking of buying one today. If I get it I'll review it.

Of course a good modding tele if anything:)

I hope this turns out well for you.

That said there are a few things that bother me.

The company calls it self : " Manufacturer and IMPORTER of guitars". What is getting imported and what of those are getting the Welch name?

It does look like they make some tele`s, but the Gibsons look suspect to me. Plus, there are only a few in process shots of guitars being made, and only of bodies in different stages of finishing. One of which looked kind of awful. The blue one with the description "Ash body T-style with standard bridge pickup routing and
P-90 in The neck position. It should cover it all." That thing is lumpy as heck. Like rattle can lumpy.

Here's an "official dealer" on ebay. Prices are interesting.

Japanese owned and operated company producing in China is what I got.

The facebook webpage doesn't give any detailed specs...

They look Classic Vibe quality (from the pictures) Would be a great modding guitar if anything...

I'm probably going to get one at some point to make into an Esquire. I actually like the headstock compared to the other low-price copies.

The LPs look pretty sweet too, although I think I could get a used Epiphone P90 LP for the same price. I wonder how quality would compare

I just received my Welch Tele Twang Slinger - silver with black "binding" like Buck Owens and Don Rich. I'll review in-depth and post pictures but overall, meh! Overpriced Squire with a fancy paintjob, fake binding and terrible attention to detail. Has some positives but not many.
