Here's my formal review for my Welch Twang Slinger Vintage Series Telecaster that I recently received in the mail... The Good: - It looks beautiful. I almost went the safe route of sunburst, but where else could I get a daphne blue in this price range and this quality? So I went with the blue. The binding looks awesome, and the vintage tinted neck brings the whole thing together. It looks like it is straight outta the 50s or something. Very cool. - It feels and plays like a quality guitar. What more can you ask for? It feels like a really solid guitar. It's quickly becoming one of my favorite necks I've played. It's a C-shape with 9.5" radius and glossy finish. It's just slightly fuller feeling than Fenders modern c-shape, but I prefer it. The fretboard feels smooth and fast and I haven't found any sharp edges on the frets yet. No fretting out or fret buzz either. Intonation was SPOT ON right out of the box and it has the vintage 3-peice saddles which are pretty cool too. - It sounds just like a Tele should. Plenty of twang here to go around. The Wilkinson Vintage voiced pups are actually quite nice. I was kinda expecting that I'd want to swap them out immediately, but I am in no hurry after hearing them. The Bad: Really not much to say here as of now. And I'm not just saying that. Of course, it doesn't have the f-word on the headstock, which effects resale value. And like I said, the pups are good for now, but I'll probably still end up saving up for some D.Allens eventually.
