UTILIZATION

This guitar is a cool idea - I mean, the Telecaster is one of the most iconic electric guitars in history. And people love to play the acoustic guitar, so hey, why not combine the two into a TELECOUSIC? Right?

The problem is, the guitar is junk. The back is a cheap fiberglass, similar to an Ovation, yet without a curved bowl shape. The neck feels like a sub-$100 Starcaster from Target, and the fret job is awful. The action at the bridge is way too high, and the pickup sounds crackly and muddy at the same time.

SOUNDS

This may be the worst sounding guitar I've ever played. Honestly. The guitar was built to be an acoustic, so it should sound good not plugged in, right? Well, this guitar sounds like something you find at a yard sale. Not a good, hidden treasure, but like a kid's 1/2 size guitar made in the 60s with particle board. That is to say, it sounds absolutely awful. The electronics are terrible as well - the guitar I played had an awful crackly sound to it, yet still offered no definition.

OVERALL OPINION

This guitar is just bad, all the way around. It feels awful, plays awful, and sounds awful. Fender has made some amazing products, and this is decidedly not one of them. It really is a terrible guitar. A friend of mine offered to sell me his for $40 and I turned it down.
