Good guitar. Sounds good. Totally in love with the color once I saw it in person. The pickup combination is great for different sounds. Now what is preventing me from a total 5 stars? Minor finish scuffs here and there but not a total deal breaker by any means. And the total downfall is the neck, I don't know what I was expecting maybe a thin neck but it's my first telecaster style guitar so maybe my expectation are not plausible. The neck feels like a bat, takes some time to get used to b ...

Much better than expected at this price point. It needed a setup, but what new guitar doesn't? One of the tuners was a bit stiff, but seems to be loosening up with use. Nice finish and wide range of tonality with this pickup arrangement. It had a small ding in the neck, but nothing serious.

The case is excellent for the price. My new tele-style guitar fits snugly, and the interior plush surface is very nice. The guitar is beautiful and plays well. The only problems were the neck pickup and input jack are loose and wobbly. Good value for my purposes.

First of all: I love the second one I was sent. I got two of these. The first one was so messed up that it was taken apart and tossed into my parts box. The neck was trashed as it had gouges in several different places, the nut looked like it was made with a kitchen knife, and probably half of the frets were sticking up and unable to be seated even though I tried to do so. The body was cracked in two different places at the neck pocket. And, the bridge was crooked. I built a guitar myself a ...

Amazing! This much guitar for this little. I knew it was a scam. I just knew it was a scam. I also thought, "I'm not gambling that much money. Try it!" For less than $120.00, its easily as nice as guitars I've owned that cost 3X as much. The finish is awesome. The frets are dressed and even. There are no "hang nails". I haven't even "set" this one up and I've gotten two solid weeks of use out of it! This will not be the last Glarry that I buy. I've got my eye on a GST. Looking fo ...

So first of all, price is really very good. I think most people who are buying these are people who want to practice setups or fretwork etc and for that it's great. I wouldn't really recommend for a beginner unless they know someone who can get it playable for them. There's very obviously a couple issues with my instrument right out of the box. The bridge is mounted crooked with the base side of the plate being higher than the treble side. Additionally the bridge pickup mounting had it so high i ...

I was pleased with this guitar, unlike the acoustic i ordered a month or so ago, it needed a few minor adjustments and a change in strings. the biggest issue i see is in the bridge. the strings feed thru right under the springs and actually touch them. It hasn't caused any breaks yet, time will tell. the bridge pickup has a hum, im thinking it might be a bad ground, the neck pickup sounds ok, but overpowers the bridge, and when in the middle position it sounds muddy . the frets need dressing a ...

Beautiful color. Worth the wait. Damaged in shipping but Glarry quickly responded. You may have to look in junk mail folder to find replies. I bought it to modify and have enjoyed every thing about it except how it was delivered to me. Thanks

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 ...

Instrument arrived with issues but Glarry customer service has been excellent. The price is fantastic. Very good, solid guitar for a beginner (once strings are replaced and guitar set-up). Pickups sound just like they should (shielding will quiet down that bridge pickup). Also a great base guitar for learning modifications. Very pleased overall.

Been playing for over 50 years...yikes. Thought I would give this one a try and was really surprised. Beautiful yellow finish is flawless, and the sound is great. There is kind of a disconnect between the neck and the body though IMHO. But after tweaking around with the truss rod, bridge, etc. I got it playable! GREAT guitar for the money and delivery was quick. I think I might replace the nut to get the action down lower, and the stock strings had to go, but now it stays in tune and is fun to p ...

Excellent value IF: you are able to file fret ends, and adjust intonation, and adjust the action yourself. Otherwise you'll need to pay for a repairman to do those for you. Looks great, sounds good, neck feels slightly clunky, but it is A LOT of guitar for the cost.

Ordered the GTL Semi-hollow F Hole and received it in 6 days later. Very impressive. I was worried about shipping time because of previous reviews, but mine go to me super fast. The front of the guitar looks beautiful (Blue) however there were 2 chips around the bottom/back edge of the guitar. Nothing I am going to make a big deal about. I am a beginner and will not be gigging with it. Just a hobby in my basement. I read that chips happen a lot to the guitars because of their packaging and would ...

Very nice finish. One or two inconsequential flaws. Tuners good. Minimal burrs on frets. Pickups fine. Humbucker bright and warm, light in weight. Lots of little swag,/cables, picks, a useable dustcover case, s useable Strap, cable, and electronic cable. Action high.

Fast shipping. Beautiful. Good finish. Well constructed from inexpensive parts. Frets needed polishing. Tuning machines should be improved. Pickups sound good for the money. Good resonance. Well worth the money if you know how to do your own setup. Suggest longer wires between the pots, so the tele plate reversal mod is easy.

Very happy with guitar, however box was destroyed when it arrived,I think you need to package better for shipping.

Four stars BUT... The bridge was misaligned on my example. This is a pretty big deal. The guitar was playable, but having all of the strings shifted to the high E by 1+ mm was really not acceptable. For a beginner, this would make navigating the high E string a challenge as it was so close to the edge of the fretboard. Additionally, the face plate for the controls was also misaligned. Fortunately, I have the skills and experience to fix both of these problems and did. Sure, I could have done ...

Great looking, sounds good, string adjustment needed.

Guitar needs some tweaking ( like a neck shim and a setup) but I could say the same about any Fender-haha. Good value as long as you can do a little work-recommend !

Glarry Tele Thinline Style Amber color. For the Price I give it a 5. The playability I give it a 4. Pickups and Electronics, Tuners Hardware etc. I give it a 4. The Neck i give it a 3, i had to do a truss rod adjustment, the frets are ok, no fret buzz on mine. So Overall this is a 4 Star Guitar in my opinion for what it is Im going to put a better neck on it. This guitar finish is nice, pics are enclosed.

Very nice guitar

I love this guitar, came playable right out of the box .The guitar has a great sound and as usual you can NOT beat the the price for the quility you get Don't know how Glarry can sell such a fine instrument for the price. Sure its not a $300 or $500 dollar guitar but I wouldn't hesitate to use this on stage .Did I say iI been performing over 25 years as an entertainer? If your looking for something to play at home or an emergincy guitar then this is it . I now own five Glarry guitars.
