For the price, it has a very nice tone, certainly superior than my less expensive Teles. Nice connection to my hero Jimmy Page. Nice try recreating his original '59. Not possible to replicate in even a controlled mass production. Still it is a nice collector guitar that is eminently playable. Have never yet met a Fender I didn't like. This one is well made and I expect it to hold up well. Beautiful plush Fender case. Limited run of these, I think, so glad I snatched up the only one Sam Ash has behind glass.
