    OK so I found a EART Telecaster. Robert Baker YouTube channel let me know about brand. Made in China with amazing specs. And Korean parts. I loved the Super Strat style he demoed. Beautiful 5 piece neck. OK looking veneer. Quality for very little money.

    So on Amazon I found a EART Telecaster. Red Wine, stainless steel frets, mahogany body, maple roasted neck so it looks like it is roasted, Body: Carbonized mahogany, tiger pattern veneer, Neck :Carbonized maple, neck, Shape: "C" Shape, Fingerboard : Maple, Mixed radian (7.25-9.5),Frets: Stainless steel frets, and Neck Pickup: Tele Style/S-S-H Pickups. 4 bolt on neck and, arm rest, and a belly cut. And they sound amazing. People are keen on these things.

    I also found a few YouTube video's on the Telecaster .

    Now I have a problem. I want one. Price is 289.99 with a 4 year protection plan of 44.99. Wow looks better than a Squire and G&L Cort made Telecaster. Looks expensive. But quality Korean parts. China body and neck. Thoughts on the guitar? They also make a blue and a brown one.

    Sharp looking guitar, I like the features. Luckily for my wallet, I won't buy anything MIC if I can help it, but it looks like a solid buy.

    They look like a lot of guitar. SS frets for that kinda money is crazy.

    The only reservation I can think of is the brand name, for the time you might want to sell it.

    They seem like they would worth a try, I like the styling.

    I love stainless steel frets, but personally, I don’t like the belly cut or armrest slope on Teles.
    However, the real deal breaker for me is the headstock shape.
    But that’s just one snob’s opinion.
    Looks like a nice guitar for not a lot of money!

    Thinking the same, especially the headstock shape.

    Whoa!
    I have not.
    I’m now looking at the black bound Tele thinlines.
    Might be worth it just for the body. I’d just toss everything else, and put together a better guitar.

    I never sell guitars. I think it is wrong and you live with regret. I have too many guitars. And selling to me is a no no.
