Hey lads and lasses, so, recently I have been soaking up tele data from all over the web, visited a bunch of shops in and around Tokyo, and one of the models that both my GF and myself were interested in (not really thinking about buying now, but definitely on the one day list) was the elite model in Aged Cherry Burst. Every video I have watched makes it sound awesome, so I felt I had to go check out the real thing. The one I saw live was a black model, but surprisingly, all I can say about its sound is "loud". Louder than my MIJ, louder than my GF's Nashville, louder than everything else in that shop, except for a 2019 Schecter, which makes sense (right?) I was also curious about the parallel switch, but again, the only words I can find to describe that is "even louder". Every other guitar on the same amp with the same settings sounded a lot of things, for which I could find more adjectives, but I'm kind of confused as to why that Elite was an instant no-thank-you. Overall, that Elite sounded very "Fender" to me, which is a good thing and something I can definitely appreciate when lined up with Tokai's and Momose's, but I'm really surprised by how underwhelmed I feel. is it just me? maybe a bad sheep?
