I love it. Nothing like cheaper Squires. A little heftier than my Fender Tele. Proper copper windings and magnets in pickups give this Tele a full rich sound. The pine has a great look and finish is excellent. A little heftier than my Fender Tele.

I just bought one in Saskatoon South three months ago. I already own a customized (DiMarzio pickups) 1982 Tele, so I didn't want a 'hot, modern' sound; what I wanted was a traditional Tele for playing rockabilly, 'clawhammer' style. The neck is flawless in feel and intonation, and I've had no problem with the tuners. The pickups are set for a traditional Tele, with the bridge pickup quite a bit louder (I mostly use the middle position). For my style, I changed the string set to .011 to .046, as the fingerpicking style needs a thicker string set.

I bought one of these from Long and McQuade a few years ago (when the CAD was higher) for $199. It felt better made and better sounding than most guitars I tried that were double its price. Today, it still feels solid and plays well. It's nicely finished and the frets don't buzz. It doesn't hold its tune as long as my more expensive guitar (it needs re-tuning if it sits for a few days) but that's to be expected in this class. I have no regrets - it's a great starter electric guitar.
