I've been looking to purchase the Red Glarry GTL for several months. It's usually out of stock, but I got lucky and ordered just when they restocked. I'm 69 years old and have been playing the guitar since age 12. From the late Sixties through the early Seventies I played in local bands. I've owned Vintage Fender, Gibson, Guild, Gretsch, as well as high end imports from Japan - Ibanez Artist, Washburn, Yamaha SG. I currently own over 40 guitars. I purchased the Glarry GTL in the color Red. The G ...

Review from a Fender Telecaster fan/player since 1976. I bought the Glarry GTL Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar F Hole HS Pickups Transparent Wine Red . I lowered the strings and tweaked the intonation a little, and a quick 1000 grit sanding to the back of the unfinished maple neck. This guitar is truly amazing at this price, The neck is comparable to my old 1972 fender telecaster, though it does have bigger frets. The pickups aren't that bad either. It's a great beginners or practi ...

It's a very nice guitar, especially for the price. While it does have a couple of minor issues (one of the bridge pickup screws is sticking out about 1/4 inch for some reason, and the ferrules on the back are unevenly spaced), they don't affect playability. The guitar is a looker, I have the

I am not much more than a beginner, having started and stopped playing many times over the years. That being said, I am impressed with the looks and feel of this semi-hollow body telecaster. The finish is as good as any guitar I have owned over the years, to include fenders. Would recommend Glarry to any new starter or someone that wants to increase there selection of playable guitars without going to deep into the pockets

I've bought several inexpensive guitars lately and this is one of the best in looks and feel. It's a burlywood which looks great and has a nice finish (except for a small crack in the neck pocket). The only obvious issue is that two of the strings are strung through the saddle springs. I had planned on using this guitar to practice upgrades on so, if I have to replace the bridge, that's ok. That being said, I was expecting to also replace the tuners, neck and then pickups. I previously bou ...

Beautiful guitar. It took a while longer than expected to arrive. Free shipping plus holidays were probably in play here. When it did arrive, I found that two strings, while intonated correctly at open and 12th fret, were off at lower frets. Doing some research on line, this pointed to nut height. After working on the nut a little, it sounds much better now. I am torn on the review here. If I was a beginner, and this was my first guitar, I'm not sure I would have known that the guitar i ...

Update...Glarry sent a replacement which was perfect right out of the box for the one that had some issues with the neck. A really nice guitar at a great price point. Great service.


by C***g on January 17, 2021


Sweet little guitar..... very light weight.... so would suit a younger player..... good to learn on..... Played straight out of the box after tuning...... May require minor tweaking to the truss rod & adjustment of the bridge to achieve perfect string height & intonation.... Blue coluur on the front blending into black on the back gives a nice look to the finish.... Very satisfied with the guitar in general for the price...... Now waiting for the Burning Fire sunset edition to come back in s ...

The honeymoon is over after half an hour.. The ashtray doesn't line up with the neck!!! High E tends to slide off the fret board above the 9th fret.I hope I can solve the problem, but, for beginners, they would probably give up guitars. I have to route out the pu cavity, and reposition the ashtray about 3/8ths of an inch, towards the bass side. While I'm at it, I'm gonna move it all forward, to fill in the space between the ashtray and scratch plate. In my opinion, this would be more work than s ...

The shipping box was a little damaged. The guitar looks good, tuned up nicely. Beautiful finish on the guitar. Guitar plays great,also a very good value. Thank you.


by D***y on January 11, 2021


This is my third Glarry guitar. And I tell you the quality is getting better and better. The fret ends are perfect. The finish is beautiful. And of course it sounds as good as it looks. The action was just a little high which is perfect for slide guitar and all I had to do was adjust the intonation, tune to open E and I am good to go. My other Glarry guitar is a black GTL and I love it. My second buy was a Glarry GIB bass in black and it's flawless as well. I can't believe the quality of these G ...

Best money I've spent on a guitar ever. Looks good plays good. Great fret board . Was ready to use out of the box. Just a tuning. I have many guitars none play any better and some not as well.


by J***e on January 04, 2021


My first Glarry experience was good but the guitar itself had some minor nut issues that made it very hard to play (ST model). This GTL model however is amazing for the price. Only 2 issues I could find, dirty finger board and F holes a little rough. Otherwise this is an incredible instrument for the price. The Yellow model is particularly beautiful to look at.

Sounds good, looks good, arrived promptly. Fantastic value for money!


by C***k on December 29, 2020


MAJOR DAMAGE!!! Well, my guitar arrived today. --- I bought this for my daughter for Christmas. It arrived on the 29th. Not too upset about that because I ordered it on the 18th, knowing it could take up to 10 days for delivery. Well, being all excited when it arrived, when I saw the box, I was immediately concerned. When I opened it, my concerns came to reality. The body is crushed and it must be returned. Overall, the guitar looks good but I didn't do much more than open it, unpack ...

Thank you! Your voice really let us know where to start! Glarry.


by T***r on December 27, 2020


The guitar is phenomenal looking. However, it's going to take a fair amount of work to make it playable. First, the intonation was way off so I had to set that up. Next the neck had too much relief so some work with my slotted neck checker solved that. There's fret sprout on the high E side of the neck, enough so that you'll cut your fingers if not careful. Another 1/2 hour with a fret file and sanding block to fix that. The top 3 tuners (GBE) are really rough when turning. They'll probably work ...

by A***s on December 27, 2020


Firstly the brilliant value for money considering the finish of the instrument is much better than I could hope for. I bought the guitar as a base for updating the spec by adding some hardware updates... i.e. Locking tuners, Roller string trees, TUSQ nut, Strap Locks, new pickups and a Stetsbar Tremolo, and a good setup. That done, it will be one hell of of an instrument... as good as a guitar costing many times as much. Thanks Guys!


by J***n on December 25, 2020


This is my third Glarry guitar and I love it. I had to do the usual setup, new strings, polish frets, steel wool the neck and fret board, lower the action, and set intonation but after that it plays like a dream. It has a wonderful sound when played through a decent amp and I use it in a band every weekend. Thanks for a great guitar, the price is very reasonable. This is my first review, the other two guitars are also great after setup and I will recommend Glarry to all of my friends!


by D***r on December 24, 2020


Picked up a blue f hole tele for black Friday sale and I gotta admit, very nice and a great bargain for the price. Fed Ex took forever but other than that I am very happy with my Glarry. As soon as it arrived I cut the strings and put some slinky 10's on it and gave that neck a good lemon oil treatment. The neck was straight but after a week it did need some relief removed from it. The intonation was close and the string height I was able to go down a good bit without fret buzzing. The guitar pl ...

The guitar came damaged during shipping. Glarry did make it right. The hardest part was getting them on the phone or to answer e-mails.


by T***n on December 20, 2020


We had some issues,customer service took care of it. Everything is good now. Thanks to Lin for taking care of this issue. Happy with the customer service. I like this semi hollow guitar. Very pretty guitar.


by W***r on December 18, 2020


This is a real good looking guitar. Plays pretty well right out of the box. With a minimal amount of tweaking it to my personal preferences it is gonna be Fine. I like this guitar.


by s***y on December 18, 2020


absolutely amazing cant fault it could`nt stop playing, cracking tone its a about time a guitar like this came on the market i will be getting another one for my collection.


by D***n on December 17, 2020


Another great Glarry guitar. Looks and plays great. Well done Glarry!!!


by K***s on December 16, 2020


Ordered 11/27/2020 received 12/14/2020. I'm very pleased with guitar. The Hummbucking pickup makes such a difference. I can get a warm jazz sound or country twang. Great job Glarry.


by H***s on December 11, 2020


This guitar is fantastic! Out of the box the action was good-low enough for easy playing and no buzz. The humbucker is awesome huge difference between the single coil and humbucker. I was nervous about the pickups being microphonic - they are not. I oiled up the neck and stretched the factory strings - they are holding the tuning so I will keep them until they break. I love this guitar-great job glarry!!


by J***f on December 11, 2020


Let me start by saying the Guitar is great for $120.00. In my case it took a total of 11 days to get it though and many reviews said it was so fast? Now it is close to Christmas and with Covid19 concerns it takes longer but this was frustrating. It took 4 days to leave Glarry location. Then FedEx kept saying out for delivery, everyday for 4 days in a row. I really thought it was lost. When it came it was slightly damaged. Like other's have said the box is a tight fit with little padding. in my c ...
