"Gorgeous Telecaster looks with better tone and a lower price!!!"
Definitely plan on keeping this axe a long time, only thing I would consider doing to it is putting in some higher end Duncan pups. However the pups it has sound great, much fuller than most fender tele's with humbuckers. Love this guitar, and cant stress enough how great it feels in my hands!!!
Sound
This guitar is amazing! The sound quality is great with the humbuckers and with the coil taps it has that nice twang to it as well. It plays like a dream!
Features
The 3 way toggle switch with 2 volume and 2 tone knobs is always nice, plus the added benefit of coil taps, what more could you ask for?
Ease of Use
The guitar sounds great, stays in tune. The neck on it is amazing, nothing better than a guitar that just feels great in your hands!
Quality
The guitar is extremely durable and is very well put together, then ONLY issue I ran in to was that the knobs sometimes came off with the push pull coil taps but its a very easy fix and now I dont have the problem.
Value
This guitar is a steal for the price, played MUCH higher priced Fender Telecasters that didn't sound or feel nearly as good as this guitar. If you like the Tele design and not the Fender price tag (or poor quality by comparison) this guitar is a must!
Manufacturer Support
Havent needed anything so far!
The Wow Factor
The black finish with full black pickguard, creme colored binding and maple neck is absolutely GORGEOUS, I have had many compliments about how pretty my guitar is.

"VERSATILE AXE!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound
This has two humbuckers which both can be split so this can go from LP to Strat/Tele and almost has that famous p90 sound also. I cannot say enough as the maple really brings out the tone. I think Schecter has a winner here as it is very simple yet VERY VERSATILE! Also loves pedals! This is a great recording guitar as the sound is extremely WELL BALANCED with DEPTH! AWESOME!
Features
Not many features but QUALITY features are only used on Schecter! Very Smooth controls, great sounding pups, nice frets, GREAT NECK!

"Big Bang for the Buck!"
These guitar is really well done. Super nice hardware...big potentiometers (not the little wimpy ones like on most Asian instruments). Bridge pickup is super cool and the neck pickup is ok. Butter bean grover tuners stay in tune great but are a little close to each other. Great finish and superb workmanship.

"Tele HEAVEN!!!"
Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Sound
This is another CHAMELEON of guitars from Schecter! AMAZING QUALITY throughout! Smooth playing neck with PERFECT FRETS! They feel and sound stainless. I own 4 Schecter guitars and every one is built to the same standards which is PERFECT!!! Can't say enough about this company! I own 22 guitars of many brands including famous brands. Sure they all have a different sound yet NONE can keep up with SCHECTER! NONE!
Features
If I were to custom order a guitar this is EXACTLY what I would want!!! Coil-splitting on both pups with QUALITY POTS AND PICKUPS! Great TONAL RANGE. This axe can go from TWANG TO SCREAMIN and everything in between! LOVES PEDALS!!!!!
Quality
This is a PROFESSIONAL GUITAR and built to play! It is heavy but SOLID! About the weight of an LP with great balance. IMHO perfect!
Value
You won't find a better tele no matter how much $$$$$ you pay!
