Here’s my demo of this cheap TELE clone I just picked up
Congrats and welcome to TDPRI.
Embrace the golden age of inexpensive guitars
Welcome! I recently purchased the LH Strat version...good demo!
hunh - the Glarry bass I ordered on eBay didn't make a sound (never arrived)
Glad yours did
Peace - Deeve
Welcome to the fold!
Welcome. How do you like that T-Type?
Welcome to the forum !!
It's crazy to me that companies can produce playable guitars so cheaply now.
Cheap guitars were so incredibly craptastic when I was growing up that they probably made more people quit than helping them love to play music.
Awesome demo and nice looking Glarry!
Yes, they are cheap, Yes the pickups (esp. the bridge) are microphonic, Yes the back of the neck may be “gritty” out of the box, but the amount of guitar you get for $89 is amazing!!
Those are things a Scotchbrite pad and a set of cheap Korean (Wilkinson or Artec) pickups with some shielding paint can fix!
I I’m looking hard at a Glarry P-bass, and was looking HARD at that green T-type they have as a mod platform...still may get it- your demo is inspiring
Welcome aboard from Sunny Arizona!!! You’ll like it here!!!
Welcome to TDPRI.
The Bass forums have gone crazy over them for how good they are.
Thoman took the Brand owners like Fender/Gibson out of the Harley Benton models.
Glarry has taken the Brands And the Retailers out of the models -- factory selling direct via Amazon. And that's how they pull the costs out. Basically they sell the consumer a guitar for a little more than they would sell to the Brands and cut out all the rest of the profit sharing. I expect more factories to sell this way direct in the future.
Welcome! Hard to beat a sunburst Tele. Nice job of playing, too.
I own two Glarry basses, a P and a J. The P is a great, lightweight P-type. The J needed a lot of work to make it playable. Looks the part, though.
Based on those experiences and my experiences with Squiers, I’d look for a sale on a Bullet or Affinity Tele. It’s likely to be a better instrument out of the box.
OP, I hope you got a good one that needs very little setup work. Plenty of help here if you need it. Welcome aboard, and best of luck with your Glarry T!
I bought a Glarry Jazz bass a few months ago so I can record music by myself. I wasn't expecting much for $90 but I'm not disappointed at all. The neck was straight (more like a P-bass neck than a jazz though), fret work was good except it had sharp fret ends. I probably will swap the pickup for something else because the original pickup is a bit anemic.
After this experience I would have no problem buying a Glarry guitar.
