Great guitar for the money

Tangled up in blues, 05.11.2017
First off, particularly if you're an admirer of Keith Richards' open-G Telecasters, this really is a great guitar for the money; that's not to say it was perfect straight out of the box, but any glitches encountered were minor and easily resolved.

I'd read some very good reviews of the G&L Tribute series in general and the Bluesboy in particular, and on the evidence of this guitar I'd concur with their verdicts. It looks stunning, plays and sounds well and offers very good "bang for the buck". One reviewer felt that the neck humbucker was a little under-powered/ muddy compared to the bridge single coil, but they sound fairly well balanced to me. The finish was pretty flawless and (with the exception mentioned below) the build quality was also very good.

So what were the glitches? Well, the action was fairly high and the intonation wasn't perfectly set on a couple of strings, but those issues were easily sorted. More surprisingly, the nut came off the jack socket the first time I unplugged the guitar; the wiring was very tight, so it proved to be a frustratingly fiddly job to get things screwed back together properly, but once sorted the problem hasn't recurred.

Bottom line - whether you're looking specifically for an affordable take on Keef's legendary "Micawber" to fool around with, or more generally for a versatile Tele (with the neck humbucker offering a different tonal palette), the Bluesboy won't disappoint - it really is a lovely guitar, especially at this price point.

As ever, service from Thomann was excellent.

Brilliant guitar, better than a mex

27.09.2014
Well, i may not have had this guitar for long, but oh my god it surprised me straight out of the box, just the look of it in the flesh OOZES quality, and then i picked it up, i've played more since getting this guitar than in the 3 weeks before! the neck has a kind of unfinished, satin-ey feel to it, really smooth, no sticking to the neck when you don't want to! the frets feel a little larger than fender frets but i'm not 100% sure if that's fact, just feels nicer in your hands. the body was finished perfectly, no blemishes or anything, not much to say other than beautiful! there wasn't much to do in terms of setup, other than lower the action a little, but that's just personal preference! i couldn't wait to plug this baby in, and i wasn't disappointed! the bridge pickup has that classic tele sound, although i'd personally say that it is a slightly hotter, more bitey sound than a standard tele. The neck pickup just sounds lovely, i was originally planning on swapping these pickups straight out for some SDs but no, these will do nicely, easily my favourite telecaster after 10 years of searching!
