First off let me say I purchased this guitar because of its obscurity in the Fender stable of guitars. No it is not your run of the mill tele. If you're looking for that distinctive telecaster sound purchase a different tele. With the dual humbuckers this thing is an overdrive monster. This is comparable to my Les Paul when played through my fender deluxe amp. I absolutely love this guitar for what it is....a rock n roll fender Frankenstein. Lastly the strat headstock is so much more secure to hang on a hanger. I know it's trivial but I hate the skinny tele headstock for hanging.

Musical Background:

I've been playing guitar for over 40 years in multiple bands and as a home artist

Musical Style:

Mostly play rock but dabble in country and blues.
