So I stopped by Aldi tonight on my way home, picked up some Weetbix, milk and honey, stopped by the guitar aisle and unboxed the tele. It was fully detuned so didn't really play it but first impressions are the neck felt great, high quality, satiny smooth and lovely lovely fretwork (felt better than my glossy thinline neck). I like the pickguard, but wasn't feeling it with the rest of the guitar with the cheap electronics and bridge (which is expected), and the shiny body paintwork smelled very fresh (I don't know why I smell guitars, always do.......but it smelt toxic plastic petroly. I was hoping for a string through body but for the price, this looks very good value. I may sleep on it and pull the trigger tomorrow, though I really don't need another axe. It can always make a nice xmas present for someone if I don't like playing it...... Has anyone played theirs yet, if so how is it?
