Really nice good guitars, ive played quite afew and their nice i had to be dragged away from getting one, its basically a flathead tele which were amazing before being discontinued.

Sadly £700 is abit steep for a mexican to me though but it is well worth the money if you have it

Yes. Other options are Charvel San Dimas 2 and John 5 Tele. Cheaper route might be Avril Lavigne Squier.

Pretty much. It's something you can do yourself without spending all that money. It's pretty simple:

Buy squier telecaster with HH configuration. Put in emgs. Put on heavier string gauge. Ta-da! You now have a cheaper jim root tele

Or you could get the squier john 5 and put emg's in it.

Yes, even better. I'm not a fan of John 5 at all, but I do like his signature telecaster a lot.

It is not like every other telecaster, but with H-H and bigger strings. It has flatter radius, and mahogany body, unlike regular tele (john 5 signature included).
