    This looks pretty cool. Anybody try this one or any from the series? Wish it had a bigsby or trem. I'd be all over it.

    I plinked around on one unplugged at GC - didn't get to spend much time with it, but it felt nice and seem to be well put together. Surprisingly light . . . will probably take a more serious look at it next time I see one.

    I have it and it's superb guitar. a bit thick neck in comparison to my squier. also much lighter then squier. Stays in tune great.Has vintage tuners. Body colour darker then in photos. transparent laquier but in daylight almost imposible to see wood grain

    Is that a rosewood thinline body?

    It's funny, I thought that it would be an instant buy too if it had a Bigsby.

    Why don't they make quality thinlines with a rosewood board. Maple is a dealbreaker for me...

    seems like a good guitar. I tried one out briefly but found the neck too skinny for my taste. Otherwise I'd have jumped on the guitar pretty quickly!

    For one of Fender China's first offerings it's pretty impressive, but bring a fret rocker and check the fret levels before buying.

    Played one through a Deluxe Reverb and a Blues Jr. at GC and liked it a lot. The particular one I played was a fantastic instrument that played well, was set up surprisingly well and sounded great. Those pickups in a thinline sound great.

    I have no need for one, so I moved on (I actually need a cheap Tele for slide right now), but if I were in the market for a versatile Tele, I'd give this a hard look.

    I played one today at a local store. It definitely beats any MIM tele that I've ever played. I really love the vintage tint of the neck. The pickups sound very good for a MIC tele. It would be nice if there was a choice between maple and rosewood fretboard, but for such a low price, this is a great guitar. I'm actually considering getting one of these soon.
