I think this guitar is extemely versatile it is an amazing lead guitar. The Seymour Duncan humbucker in the bridge position is from a '59 Les Paul and the neck is a '59 reverse polarity pickup its great for athat thick meaty tone. I have played this guitar threw a number of different amps and have found that it sounds really good threw all of them.
Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is an excellent guitar for any type of player, it's very versitle and can be used in alot of different types of music. But if your looking for that tele tone this is not the guitar for you. This guitar sounds identilce to a Les Paul.

This guitar is a Telecaster Custom not a Custom Classic Tele I. The Fender Telecaster Custom has comes with two Semour Duncan humbucking pickups and a push pull cap. This guitar comes in a mohogany body and neck with a flame maple top (FMT). The neck is set into the body so it's a 1 piece. It comes in crimson red transparent, blue transparent, black cherry and amber. I choose athe the crimson red it really brings out the vibe in the fmt. It also comes with a 3-way selector. The push pull cap splits athe humbuckers into single coils for that sweet thin rhythmic tone.
