At GC yesterday, I didn't buy it but I did lay hands on it. Being very anal AND overly opinionated about Telecasters, I will say that it wasn't bad ! The neck wasn't bad, a tad thick for my tastes but very playable. It reminded me of the Classic 50's I had many years back. Body weight seemed appropriate, tones, all good to my ears, plenty of bright with a good roll- off. Quality was decent, finish was good, overall it was a very nice guitar. It was some sort of a mild reddish/orangish color, not sure what they call it. It was nice. Nice axe, ya never know. Oh yeah, I went to GC for a new compressor, came out with the Keely which was on sale.
