    So far I dig it. Sounds great(as great as it can with my limited skills). It came missing the pickup selector knob. Strings are set up too high. Fret ends feel nice. Love the neck. Really been wanting a Tele again, and this is just what I wanted.

    Probably just higher than I’m familiar with. If I had bigger fingers it would be perfect.

    Can’t get enough of the way this guitar sounds. Definitely inspires me to play. After more playing, I am pretty certain this action is higher than most would prefer. Also, I’ll tune it and when I play an E on the 7th fret with the B and E string ringing, the open strings are out of tune. I’ve stretched the strings off and on for the past hour and it still won’t hold tune for even a few chords. Not pressing down hard on strings and I’m playing light. Not sure if something is wrong with the guitar

    Try throwing on a fresh set of strings. Nice guitar. I like that color too.
