    Hey guys,

    Been playing guitar since I was 11 or so, when Metallica's black album came out and the whole seattle rock thing was just starting. So, not too long ago? Hehe

    Since then, I've branched out to other genres, bands, artists and of course, guitars.

    Just recently, I was in the market for a singlecut. Something like a Les Paul Custom but price was too much so I started looking at ESP/LTD, washburn parallaxe and some Japanese Les Pauls.

    Then, I thought, what about the world's first singlecut, the Telecaster? I've always been curious.

    Luckily, there were a few guys selling some here in my country (Philippines). SX, Squiers, MIM and this CIJ blonde tele that I finally ended up with.

    I really dig this guitar. In fact, I haven't put it down since I got it! Lol

    It plays fantastic and it's a heck of a lot more versatile than people give it credit for. And I found that the tone knob has a push pull circuit that gives me this thick humbucker sound.

    But, knowing how Japanese imports are here, I'm sure this is some kind of frankentele. But it's a damn good one, if you ask me. Fake, franken or not, this thing is awesome!

    Looking forward to learning from you guys!

    Cheers!
