I'm blown away by my recently purchased Ronfo Hadean for $111! Double bound!
Niggles: tone pot with push-pull turns without hardly any resistance. Volume pot feels right. I need to get a decent set of tuners. Other than that, I'm happy with this cheap-o Tele.
Whenever I see these kinds of guitars my concern is ALWAYS the weight! At my age( 69 ) weight is a deal breaker for me....and ANY guitar weighing in over 8lbs. is a no deal for me....I have one that weighs 7.4 that I'm having a harder time with....if the weight is agreeable to you then BRAVO DEAL WELL DONE!! But I'm afraid that I'd have to take a pass....delighted to see that you guys are so happy with your purchases!!! ROCK ON!!!
Yes, it is on the heavy side. I kind of wish I had gone alder instead, but oh well
Congrats on your acquisition!
I picked up a used/mint XV-840 Double Bound (for next to nothing, which is nice), that's supposedly made from Solid Alder, but I still found it a bit (too) heavy, so I carved out a bathtub route under the pickguard and cut that big ole Xaviere headstock down to proper Tele size 'n' shape.
Made a difference!
It can be the same dimensions of the same wood type, and one piece/combination of the several pieces, can be a LOT heavier on one guitar than the other. It's not just the wood type, but your particular specimen.
Recent poster here got a Squier CV, pine, that's significantly over 7 pounds, and pine is "supposed" to be lighter than that handful of usually used woods.
Paulownia--now THAT'S always light as a feather! Which is why I have two, despite its drawbacks.
I picked up a Squier CV in GC and it feels about the same weight as my X. For under $200, it's got it's faults, but it's a decent player
My body is made from a single piece. You would think they would use a single piece if they're going to use a translucent finish. For $199 its still a great deal.
I really doubt it's a single piece.
