Like me, it's heavy and handsome. An obvious boost in quality over the Mexican made. Not much to say, the telecaster isn't an elaborate instrument but it does nothing wrong. Electronics and tuning knobs are very solid. You'll want to get a padded shoulder strap due to its weight. Got great advice from L&M and you get a free service within the first year of ownership. Gig bag is of good quality. If you're buying off the rack, check the guitar carefully for scratches, especially the black paint. As collectible as it is solid.
