I'm completely speechless ...

Joachim265, 07.05.2014
... but must write anyway.
Already days before the order of the tele I made myself on the Internet over all possible exchange cunning. Because a guitar of this price class would of course have to be armed, if it is not completely unacceptable anyway. This morning she arrived at the Cheap Tele. Unpacked (the packaging is worthy of an original 1952 Fender!) And first everything, everything, what had been complained in the other reviews.
Nothing.
Re-examination, because: That can not be done.
Again nothing.
Then strings checked: Perfect. Then for the first time the strings plucked: Clean. Then E-Dur ... For God's sake: The guitar is indeed tuned!

Then I felt something strange. And I was very afraid to connect the beautifully finished part to my Line 6. Because if everything external is so immaculate, the sound MUST be horrible at this price! Plucked, plucked - TWANG did the thing. And not just twang, but DEN twang !!! And the hell out loud. My Line 6 is loudly adjusted to 2 Paulas and a Strat - now I had to turn down s.den tele.
Amplifier change because: This can not be tackled!
So plugged into the little Yamaha, plucked: TWANG! Made the thing ...

The still more incredible rest is quickly told:
1. The guitar was almost bundrein, at least as far as is possible with a 3-Reiter-Tele at all.
2. There were: a guitar cable, a large Allen key for the key setting and a small Allen key for the bridge. The sight of the latter has brought tears into my eyes. I naturally suppressed them.

Mr. Thomann, I do not know how to do anything like this tele, and frankly I do not really want to know. I would like to thank you. And in the future the bands will look more closely at the instruments. Because the guitarists, who have labeled your tele, are sure Legion.
The difference is hard to hear.

One of the few telecopes

Spätberufener, 10.12.2009

Funktionstest: alles tut so, wie es soll. Kleines Manko sind die Mechaniken, die doch sehr rauh laufen; hier weiss ich nicht, ob sich das mit der Zeit noch ein bisschen einschleift. Allerdings sind sie bis jetzt stimmstabil, und das ist ja das wichtigste.

Also, wie üblich, Saiten runter und Griffbrett geölt, alle Schrauben nachgezogen etc. Hier sind dann doch einige Punkte aufgetaucht, anhand derer man den günstigen Preis nachvollziehen kann: Von den sechs Mechaniken waren vier nicht richtig festgeschraubt, der Sattel war ziemlich scharfkantig (ein bisschen Schmirgelpapier schafft Abhilfe), bundrein kennt die Gitarre ab Werk nicht, also einstellen. Das war's dann aber bei meiner auch schon und diese Arbeiten kann nun wirklich fast jeder selbst ausführen.

Sound: mehr als zufriedenstellend (natürlich immer in Anbetracht des Preises).

Fazit: mit einem Aufwand von ein bis zwei Stunden zur Behebung der oben genannten Mängel hat man eine richtig gute Gitarre in der Hand. Ich für meinen Teil sehe das Instrument nicht mehr nur als "lass es uns mal versuchen", sondern werde sicher noch einige Zeit richtig Freude daran haben. Wer also etwas günstiges aber solides sucht oder einfach nicht das nötige Kleingeld für eine Squier oder Fender hat, ist mit der HARLEY BENTON TE-30 sicher gut bedient." data-mt-lang="en-x-mtfrom-de" data-translated="The interests in the guitar turn sometimes also from the acoustic to the electric guitar.
