Very satisfied! Guitar was in perfect condition, didn't see any blemishes or scratches. Very lightweight!

This was the first Glarry instrument I've bought with a flaw in it, and I'm glad to say Glarry is sending me a replacement, and they asked me to donate this one to someone in need. So, I'm changing the nut, dressing the frets, and doing a full setup before mailing it out to the Children's Music Fund. They're a non-profit group that offers music therapy, education, and instruments to sick kids. A big thank you to Glarry for making this happen! I'll be shopping with you guys and hopefully setting ...

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 ...

A bit disappointed. Damage and flaw on body, humbucker pickup ok but single coil poor. I guess for the price, pay for what you get.

Got this Father's Day!! • Set up right out the box. • Sounds great unplugged. • Neck smooth as silk. • Humbucker sounds soft n warm as butter. My friends with Fenders say it's as good as a regular Tele!! VERY PLEASED, and surprised how well this instrument plays.

Hello Glarry - the guitar arrived a few days early - thank you for the prompt service. It is in wonderful condition, I love the red wine color. It plays well, as-received, and did not require anything but tuning. This is my second Glarry guitar, both are the GTL Semi-Hollow F Hole with HS pickups. I plan to re-fit one of them with P90 pickups soon. Next I want to buy a GJazz II Electric Bass with the upgraded pickups and strings.

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.

I love my new Glarry GTL! Beautiful finish. I've bought several Glarry instruments. Very good Modding platform. I started a Glarry Club on the Talkbass.com forum. Please stop by and show your Glarry guitars.! I generally mod everything I get my hands on and do a complete setup. Great little instrument right out of the box. You can't go wrong investing in these affordable guitars whether it's a bass or Guitar! Very satisfied!

Dear Glarry, I received my Glarry GTL Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar yesterday. I was disappointed to find that the guitar had been damaged. Please see the photo for a the damage in the F hole. Thanks, Ron

Great guitar! Great Sound! Great value! Beautiful Wine Red finish on mine! Fit and finish are superb, with no flaws to be seen. Plays well right out of the box, but give it a basic set up, set action, check intonation, condition the fretboard, polish the frets, and a fresh set of strings, and this becomes a real players guitar. If you wanted, you could go further and polish the neck or change to your favorite pickups, but that's purely personal choice. The semi hollow design even sounds good un ...

Overall great value. Body had a few finish "glitches" but nothing unexpected for a guitar in this price range. Very pleased to see frets were nicely trimmed and had no overhang. Pickups sound OK. I was surprised as to how little packing the guitar had but it arrived in OK condition. Very light, fine starter guitar or one to have around that you don't have to worry about as it's so inexpensive.

Crack around the neck on both sides a loose nut and various imperfections.. The crack is not acceptable when it comes to me that way! That's why I didn't give them a good review.

Upon initial inspection of the guitar when it arrived Friday, I found a large crack in the neck pocket. The guitar was shipped loosely packed in a flimsy single wedge shaped cardboard box. All the guitars I've received in the past have been double boxed to help protect from shipper handling. I immediately emailed Glarry to have the defective guitar returned and replaced. I haven't heard back at this point. Once this issue is resolved, I'll post an updated review.

This is my second yellow GTL semi-hollow, I returned the first for the same issue: the bridge is placed low and is mounted crooked. The first string is barely over the bridge pickup pole piece and the string through body holes are mostly covered by the bridge. It is easy to see how the bridge is rotated if you examine the distance between the top of the bridge plate and the bottom of the pickguard. I applaud Glarry's customer service in trying to make it right, they have issued an order to sen ...

This is my second Glarry guitar. I was sufficiently satisfied with the cheaper model that I managed to shuffle my budget enough to get the semi-hollow body version and I'm even more delighted than I was with the solid-body T-style (GTL). I'm wary of budget guitars because many of them are essentially junk, but not so with Glarry. I've watched numerous YouTube reviews and most of them are quite positive. I have to say, they're being totally honest. There are tiny imperfections in the overall ...

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 ...

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 it, ...

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

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 ...

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!!

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 ...

I love this guitar. Plays great stays in tune. Sounds killer another win for glarry. Love their basses too. Looking forward to buying many more. And I'm definitely interested in testing and reviewing any new products for my YouTube channel. I mostly review bass guitars but will do any guitar review. Stay posted for my gtl semi review. 5 stars of course. Thanks glarry

Love the Glarry Thinline I just got , beautiful finish and woodgrain match . The setup was very good just lowered the bridge saddles a turn ( six brass saddles ) no sharp fret ends smoothed the back of the neck with some 1500 grit , neck humbucker sounds great and brightens up nicely in the center position . Plays as good as any of my other guitars - Squires , Epiphones , Firefly 338 , Gibson LP

Glarry is winning me over. I've used Glarry cases for years, but these guitars blow my mind. What a pleasure to set up and play. this guitar is superior to most. I'll be back soon...

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.

I recently purchased & received Glarry GTL Semi-Hollow Electric Guitar F Hole HS Pickups Transparent Wine Red. I Really think the Guitar is a stunner! The Body's wood grain shows through the Transparent Wine Red and is just awesome! and more importantly, It plays great! This is my 3rd. Glarry Guitar. I also have a Strat style Guitar and Telecaster style Guitar both by Glarry! Nice Guitars for the Money! Great Value!

They shipped me a damaged guitar and have not replaced it. I will have to file a chargeback and put reviews everywhere about my horrible first time buying here experience.

Hi Sorry, we messed up, we have already refunded the full amount, please donate the guitar to those in need in the community, we appreciate your understanding.

Really enjoy this guitar. I've been playing for many years and love telecaster-style guitars. You won't find a tele-style, semi-hollow guitar with this kind of pickup configuration (Humbucker in the neck and a single coil bridge pickup) for this low of a price and with this level of playability out of the box. Minor set up on the guitar (neck truss rod adjustment and saddle adjustments for intonation) can further enhance its tone and playability. I definitely recommend this guitar for beginners ...

Hi Nick, We appreciate your sharing and we will try our best to do better.

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.
