This is a pro-level great playing and sounding guitar that easily rivals custom shop Telecaster™ and other boutique T-style models. The pickups sound spectacular in this guitar! And thanks to the humbucker in the neck position, this one can do anything from heavy rock, rock, blues, to country.

Like with all guitars, you may have to adjust the setup to your liking. As of now, it is set up with D'Addario 10s and plays effortlessly with low action.
