I have had a couple of tele's ranging from Harley bentons T52 (which i really liked but was heavy!) and a couple of previous incarnations of the mexican tele and a second hand USA one.
This is the keeper though, for me. The bridge sounds perfect, and the neck sounds great too although some may find it a little strat like. Its not too heavy the Mex in blonde i had was literally like having a blonde hang round your neck if you like that kind of thing its fine but it was just too heavy. the T52 was heavy but ok, the previous mex i had (lake placid blue) was lovely and i regret selling it but had to change the pickups, and the USA one had a pickup change and i dont regret it going at all.
So this is the only one i have brought that i dont intend to change anything all i will do is put some different string trees on and move it up to 10's from the supplied 9's
Its a tele through and through good value i reckon i could tow it behind the car to a gig and it would still be in tune when i get there, and it would still be in one bit
None really for me
