72 Tele at a resonable price

By Mark Alexander

from Chicago IL

Love those old Teles? Can't afford one? Neither can I! So this is the next best thing. Humbucker in the neck position really opens up the possibilities of what this guitar can do. You can get that sweet, warm sound. Then you have the single coil at the bridge, and you know what that can do. Think Steve Cropper R&B and Soul legend or Albert Collins blues great. Save some money buy a new guitar, with an old feel.

Very versatile

By Marshall

from Mansfield, Texas

Wow. The SH combination makes it nice. You get a mellow tone for the neck and a bright tone for the bridge. Very versatile.

Worth every penny

By Jacob Lamme

from Albany, NY

If you are looking for a top o' the line tele, look no further than the road worn series. No need to shell out the extra dough for a deluxe.

Incredible Instrument

By Jack Riordan

from MD

This guitar is unbelievable. For the style of music i play, it is perfect. It can have both a sweet soft tone or the typical twangy sound. If you play Jazz, Bluegrass or Blues this should be he first on your list. The slightly corroded pickups and hardware on the guitar give it a sound that is extremely hard t come by.
