    Our singer has the Tele model. Nice playing guitar but the pickups aren't all that great. They are Korean made and the quality is good. It's real light for a tele and I'm not sure what type of wood they are made out of. Pretty weak on the low-end tone for a tele with humbuckers which I suspect is the wood used... and definately does not have the Tele twang.

    Overall a good value for $300 guitar and may sound better with different pickups in it like Duncan 59's or custom customs...

    That surprises me.

    The Pearly Gates is one of Duncan's most popular pickups, not to mention that their tech shop admits that the Pearly Gates is, "...not all that different from the EVH/'78 model...."

    I guess I'd have to play one to know if it sounds bad.
