  • The most versatile guitar I've ever encountered

    As reviewed by Matt on 6/3/2011

    The Blacktop fulfilled all my greatest expectations and is a fantastic guitar for the price. I prefer the Blacktop over American-made telecasters which are double the price of the Blacktop or more. The Blacktop is for guitarists who love the clean sound and playability of the telecaster, with great opportunity for a beefy tone which is fantastic for metal, punk, grunge, etc. because of the plated dual humbuckers. This is really the most versatile guitar I've ever encountered, and I'm extremely pleased with it.

  • Nice Guitar

    As reviewed by JASON BUSS on 2/17/2012

    This Guitar sounds great. It covers a wide range of tones from crunchy medal to jazzy cleans. The neck pick-up is great for those clean rhythm parts and the bridge pick-up can get pretty nasty (in a good way). I love the look of the guitar, I got the C.A.R. and the fit and finish is great. The only thing I would like is having a coil-split. That would make it perfect. I would recommend this guitar.

  • Amazing guitar worth the money

    As reviewed by Jeff Kormos on 11/17/2012

    I have been eyeing up the Candy Apple Red with a maple fretboard online for a while now, since I've wanted a Telecaster. I went to my store and played the black guitar with a rosewood fretboard. After trying out a few other guitars, I kept going back to the Telecaster, and I ordered the Candy Apple Red with maple fretboard. Pictures do not do this guitar justice. It looks so awesome in person. There was nothing wrong with the finish, the neck is nice and smooth, and also fits my hands comfortably. No problems with the frets or any kind of warping. I will need to take some time to set up the guitar, since the string tree was screwed down to the headstock completely, but I don't look at this as a con at all. I love how the controls are reversed and like the classic look to them. The skirted tone and volume knobs really give it a distinct look. The pick-ups in this thing allow me to get all of the tones that I have been looking for. To me, this is one of the most versatile guitars I've ever played. I am very happy with my purchase!
