Are PHENOMENAL!! I have now settled into a 50s Strat and Tele. I searched and found a 6 lb10 ounce tele and 7lb 1 ounce Strat. Along with the 52 US vintage tele I just sold, these are my favorite necks of any guitars I have owned. Thats a LOT of guitars. They both ring like a bell acoustically, and sound amazing plugged in, dead stock. Because I have been through pups a million times, I know exactly what I like, I have alread put them in the Tele, and the Strat set will be here tomorrow. (Fralin blues specials in necks and strat middle, and high outputs in both bridges. To my ear and for my style, these guitars are on par with any vintage or CS guitar you will find. $1650 brand new. Absolutely AMAZING guitars. Search, find a fairly light one, done. Absolute world class guitars for WELL under 2k. Fender got it right with the US vintage guitars, and these. I am amazed.
