    Does anybody have any reviews or experience on these Cozart telecasters on eBay?

    Found super cheap teles on eBay by the brand name of Cozart. I've heard of this brand, but I've never heard anything about him? I'm assuming the hardware is crap like every other cheap guitar, but they look like an awesome platform to mod.

    I had a guy bring me one to change the PUP's in for him. The neck was junk, as were the PUP's, and it just felt "cheap" . It had 2 F-holes and the pots and toggle-type switch were in the body. I swapped PUP's and put a Mighty Mite neck on for him and I really liked the guitar afterwards. His was topped with yellow maple looking stuff, you could just tell it was cheap.

    I had another by the brand "KING" that was not to spec at all for any Fender stuff. They look like the same makers, kinda DIY type guitars. If you want to chance it, they are cheap, but you will want to mod it no doubt.

    I had one of Cozart's Trini Lopez style guitars. Like Festus said, it didn't feel great. I sold it for what I got it for shortly thereafter.

    I figured as much. It would definitely be a project. I have a squier CV tele neck I need a good home for. But not sure it's worth the gamble. Or if the CV neck would even fit!

    Hey Tollehouse. I think if you keep your eyes open, you can find a better body than the Cozart's. I see stripped MIM bodies on ebay pretty regularly. The Cozart's seem to be true of the old saying "Looks good from far, but far from good."

    I've been thinning about goldtops lately. How's the fret work? Any rough ends?

    So I got their snakehead tele, too, it showed up today

    I only had moments with it before having to come in to work, but it seems good!
    Good frets, good playability, good sound. Very chunky neck.

    Festus, maybe I'm too dumb to know when something's junk :)
    Seriously, I read lots of negative stuff about the Cozart f hole guits, so I already knew to stay away from those

    ...I still own one at $95 to the door when they first arrived... blackburst with no pickguard and pretty good everything. Big fat neck and OK frets. VALUE is the word, much like a nice Squier Affinity Tele.
