Sporting a pair of Fender's custom gold foil pickups, this Telecaster brings a quirky kind of vintage vibe that usually isn't found in Fender guitars.

I am first and foremost a Telecaster man. However, lately I have been getting more into humbucker's and Les Pauls.Now that I scratched that itch with a nice, Slash Goldtop, I wanted a really nice Telecaster to get back to my roots.I had been thinking about the Gold Foil for a while and finally pulled the trigger, not really knowing what to expect. I have to say that I have never been more pleasantly surprised by a guitar in my life. First, it is absolutely beautiful. Perfect rosewood frets, perfect whitewash finish on the body, nary a nick, scratch or imperfection from tip to tail.The neck finish is a perfect aged satin. Though I prefer the neck a little thicker, I took to it in no time and love it as it complimemts the body weight and size, you guessed it, perfectly. I have'nt even begun to talk about the best part of the guitar yet, and that would be the mini humbucker gold foil pickups. I suspected they would be good as I once had a Firebird with mini's that was the best sounding guitar I ever owned. Until now, that is. The cleans are crisp but full and the crunch just cannot be matched imho by anything else out there. If you like the Telecaster body style (your crazy if you don't lol) and want a guitar that will make the most beautiful music, you have to try this one out. zZounds is AWESOME, as you know, so get to it. You will be amazed ny this guitar. I wish I could rate the sound 6 stars.
