Tele TE-90 FLT Vintage White Perhaps best guitar ever made

Telecaster man, 12.05.2017
This guitar far exceeded my expectations as a guitar in sound, affordability, it's unique look, feel and balance, and playability. I am still amazed by the finish, the pickup sound, and high quality craftsmanship of this guitar. At first, I was trying to figure out how to play this guitar, because the action was low and soft, which I like and love but I was used to really working a guitar to get sounds out of it. This guitar simply sounds like one of the $1,000 plus (I'm from the USA) guitars from a USA company (made in Mexico/China/USA), just in regards to the material let alone the sound in that it almost sounds equal, like a 9.5 to 10 on a 1 to 10 scale. I mean I've played other expensive guitars and the TE-90 FLT VW is amazingly light action, so it's hard to get adjusted to the feel and playability. But it's great for jazz, chords. I know it's not expensive, but it feels expensive and I really want another one just so I can play this one hard. I baby this one as if it was a $1,000 guitar, because it just sounds, plays, looks, and plays like one. It's very unique sound, since it's chambered under the pickguard like other another USA guitar style from California with FLT humbucker but this TE-90 sounds equal if not better. It has a jazzy kind of vibe and sound or a little blues or rock too. Really it plays everything, but I love it for chords. The neck just feels right (I like thin/slender necks) since my fingers are not long. Also, the headstock is really unique and you may not like it but I do for it's uniqueness. The weight is perfect, not too light or too heavy. The fretboard is a good flatter radius but not too flat. When you play this you will be able to feel and hear the high quality right away. I'm glad I have this one guitar in my arsenal/toolbox because it has a really warm sound with the two humbuckers and chambered pickguard area. The look is very unique/cool. The fretboard is so playable, once you get used to low action and soft touch, that you can play for hours and forget about the time. The maple fretboard and frets are a bright sound. It really begs you to play it. You can also really shred on it too or go slow and jazzy. I love the belly cut. The only con I have about this guitar is the pickguard does get scratched easily (but it's a pickguard after all); I think it might just be the plastic is not glossy enough, but that's a good thing too, it gives it a different softer look. I'm getting the Three Tone Sunburst, when I have the change because it's a really excellent guitar overall. --Marco, USA

Lives up to the hype.............(Almost!!!)

Bazwoldi, 10.04.2018
Firstly a word about Thoman's service which is very good. The packaging and attention to the safe delivery is top league. Delivery within their stated parameters.

TE 90 FLT
First to say that I've been a guitarist (after a fashion) since the late 1950's at which time it was hard to get a budget guitar that was even playable. I am also a long term amateur luthier being used to setting up guitars and getting around problems posed with poor necks and fretwork.

First impression is this instrument aesthetically ticks all the boxes. No flaws in the finish, no chips or dinks, really looks the part. Some of the components expectedly have a budget feel, the worst being the string trees, which will soon be replaced . The pickguard is perfectly acceptable but I have glued a stiffener to the rear surface as it was audibly vibrating, due no doubt to the weight relief chamber it covers. The neck is smooth to the hand, but some fret ends will need work with a file. The neck appears straight and required no more than a quarter turn on the truss rod to set the relief. I can find no high spots in the fretwork anywhere which is remarkable at this price point, but the fret surfaces need a good polish to make bending smooth . The nut was Ok but needed considerable re-cutting to get the string heights down to an appropriate level.

Sound......very quiet pups with a P90 influence in the tonality. Tone control offers little in graded tonal range (again not unexpected at this price) . Very acceptable.

All in all an extremely good guitar for the money. I cant give it 5 stars because of the slight shortcomings listed above but Harley Benton is a brand to be reckoned with if you're not a "label" snob
