Alright just got my Jay Turser Rosewood Tele today, and so far I'm way impressed. I bought it as a blem from MLC on ebay, and its a tiny bit blemished on the back, but not particularly noticeable. I'll post some pics as soon as I can.. Things that I like: Came with vintage style tuners. They hold tune well, and look cool. The cosmetics are great, the rosewood veneer texture is wonderful, and the wood binding are a great touch. i got the impression that the guitar would have more of a red hue to it, but it's a pretty dark brown. Either way, it looks great. The guitar came intonated perfectly, I imagine the individual saddles make the difference there... The string thru design is classic and great. it's one of the reasons I didn't go for the Douglas tele. Things I don't like: the guitar neck is pale and thinner than my usual preference. I planned on replacing it at some point anyway. I don't much care for the input jack , it's one of those football shaped metal covers. Functionally, it's fine. The weird part: The pickups are strange. It was initially my goal to replace the neck with a humbucker, and a new bridge pickup. Like any good tele, the neck pickup is useless. The bridge pickup is all mids, and not enough treble. However, the star performer is the middle humbucking position, which is weird. It's a full, clear tone, and I'm now hesitant to replace the pickups just because of that. The clean tone on this thing is extremely mellow, especially for a tele. But, I can tell that a different set of pickups would change that. If you're thinking about going for one, I recommend it!
