Bought mine 2 years ago. Love it!! I modified mine with a Glendale double cut blackguard chrome bridge plate, Rutters strait compensated brass saddles, Schaller original F series chrome locking tuners. Great guitar stock, amazing guitar after these mods. Love the hot Texas special pickups, lots of twang and bite. Great value, don't hesitate and buy one!!

Bought this new almost 2 years ago. Changed out the stock bridge plate for a Glendale chrome vintage blackguard double cut bridge plate and added Rutters brass straight compensated saddles. Also swapped out the tuners for Schaller replacement locking 2 pin machine tuners. I have a winner!!! Love the Texas Special pickups!! So much bite and growl and the neck is a perfect fit for me. Great value with some modern and vintage appeal.

This guitar is great! Plays very well and with that classic tele twang. Plus for the price it's hard to go wrong.
