Yes, it is a quality guitar and it sounds good. I wouldn't use it for death metal though.


good, and now you've said its not suitable for "death metal" i like it even more.

The MIM Tele is such a huge Bang for the $$$/£££.

If you want to go really old school, check out the new Squier Classic Vibe Tele - a Pinecaster like the prototype Esquire. The fanatics at TDPRI can't say enough good things about it and the price is right ($300).

Its a good guitar, but GAK's service is very hit and miss. Its usually good, but sometimes it can be absolutely awful. I've heard stories about it taking them 3-4 months to send guitars. I spent 2 months waiting for a pedal only to end up having to cancel it and buy somewhere else - and they didn't refund the shipping costs either, even though they hadn't actually sent it. Just a little warning. no smartass responses from the usual suspects please
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
#12
Apparently the quality control on those sucks, but if you play a load of 'em you can get a really super good one

EDIT: And I agree about GAK. I had no problems with a guitar amp and a bass, but when I bought a bass amp they sent me an ex demo model with broken corner guard things and charged me for a new one.

They promised to send a new set of cornerguards but never did. The cünts.

it's alright, but i'm not sure if i'd buy one online, as the QC can vary.

also, i'd rather have a blade tele (though it's more like £350), or a second hand MIJ tokai tele (prices vary, but can be had for similar or less than that fender). Depends how badly you want it to say fender on the headstock, and also personal preference, i guess.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

It's a very good deal.

If you like Grunge and Alternative, I could recommend an HSS Standard Strat, Which I believe is the same price as the Standard Tele
Gear List:
'97 Gibson Explorer w/ Duncan SH-4 and SH-2
Fender Jazz Bass 'Crafted in Japan'
Yamaha Acoustic Guitar
Vox AD30VT w/ VFS2
Roland Cube 30 Bass

IMO, go for either the newer squier (Which looks absoloutely fantastic and is getting killer reviews) or the Lite Ash Tele, which was my original choice before I got my old MIM. So much more of a guitar than the MIM standard for only about £30 more expensive, the neck was much sleeker, the ash body was lighter and more appealing, the SD pickups gave it that proper tele twangy sound at the bridge and warm jazzyness at the neck. Plus the birdeye neck really grew on me. Only thing I didnt like was the laquering was a bit thick on the body and didnt look to apetising in natural, but in solid colours it was great.

The newer mexicans standard fenders IMO have very minimal difference in feel and sound from that of the squier affinity. I've ABed them before, if i had to chose either the squier of the mim to walk out with I wouldve picked that squier, it was just much better bang for the buck, if you can find an old MIM on eBay, go for it, im very very happy with my choice, it aged fanastically and the neck is much nicer than the older MIMs, plus the original owner upgraded the electronics, all I have to do now is find some new pups.

Well, Kurt Cobain used single coils.

And things like that.
