UTILIZATION

The Vintage Modified Tele Custom II is not good. My gripes with the guitar come from the woods, mainly - agathis is notoriously poor for a choice in guitar tonewoods. The acoustic sound of the guitar unplugged is very flat and uninspiring. The neck comes from a poorer quality maple than one would normally see in a Fender guitar, and the fretwork is sub-par. There is no finish on the back of the neck, either, adding to the "cheapness" of the feel. Also, the guitar does not stay in tune.

SOUNDS

This is the one good part of the guitar - the pickups actually sound pretty good. They are a P90-type, and they can growl with the best of them, excelling for smoky blues and classic rock riffs. They're a bit noisy, but plugged in, the pickups sound great.

OVERALL OPINION

The pickups bring the score up, but the guitar still needs work. If I wanted to keep this guitar, I'd want replace the neck with something like a pre-finished Warmoth or Allparts, get better tuners, and then swap the bridge and electronics. But this would be a silly plan - these guitars can be had for $279 street, and for just a bit more ($349), one can acquire a much better Squier Classic Vibe guitar. Skip this guitar.
