Im looking bout getting a new guitar and im looking at a tele.
Anyone have opinions on mexican guitars, ive heard bad things about them just.
Looking at that.
I used to have a white mex tele about 10 years ago, easily the nicest guitar i've ever played. think the ASIWYFA guys use the mex ones too.
A big thumbs up from this corner for Mexican Teles. I have a Nashville 3 pickup jobby that I love, but I've heard the Baja (sic?) ones are underrated little gems of guitars.
I've got a lovely Mexican sunburst standard Tele and I love it. I've never played a guitar that's felt nicer.
Mex teles run the gamut from diamonds to dogs. I'd be leery enough of buying one sight unseen. That being said, playability/setup/electrics wise, few things take to a good solid customizing quite like a half decent tele.
jap teles are imo far superior and the best value ones about. you're talking around 500 bills but it'll be a great investment.
