    I am looking for a tele with a neck humbucker. The LTD is Korean and the Fender MIM. Any knowledge on these (2) in terms of quality?

    Thanks !

    If it were me I would go with the Fender. But I dont know anything about the ESP. The bridge on the ESP is more flat from what I can see.

    It might be uncomfortable for some.

    On the other hand the bridge on the ESP may be easier it intonate. EDIT neck radius is more flat on the ESP. The Fender is 7.25.

    The older MIJ Ron Wood guitars are great. Hold out. Or go for a G&L Bluesboy. The Tribute Bluesboy is at a great price point and has USA pickups and perhaps other hardware.

    Cool. Did not know G and L had that configuration. Now I have (3) options.
