Strings and/or frets were dirty got my fingers and the fretboard all stained cannot remove it from neck and it looks ugly. Neck is not comfortable I needed to get used to it after playing the guitar for several minutes, pickups are microphonic. No complains with the nut the hardware except the tuners cannot keep strings tuned. Frets are very good at this price range, the setup was perfect no intonation problems as well as the strings action. I did swap the pickups(that was always the plan) and t ...

This is an update to my review. Glarry customer service contacted me apologize for the issues experienced with the dirty strings/frets and a 10$usd refund. I find this not only amazing but rare in the present times. I'm sure they will honor their offer and more importantly they will improve their products.

....This is my 3rd order from Glarry. Not too happy with it. The neck is great & I will use that on another project but the body is of no use to me. The bridge was mounted off-center & so doesn't align with the neck. This was clearly a rush job done on a Friday afternoon round quitting time. The neck more than makes up for it so I'm okay with it. The other 2 Glarry's I have are fine so I'm not judging Glarry off this one. I will still buy from them. I do have an advantage over most people who or ...

I would put 5 stars but there was only one issue. First let me say, the guitar is awesome. Strings are nice and strong. Smooth finish and sounds great. Shipped and delivered on time. Love the whole experience. Only issue I have is that the wood grain had chips underneath the varnish. Right in the front of the guitar. Assuming they varnished overtop of the chip marks instead of sanding them out first. Otherwise perfect

Had to make a few adjustments, pickups needed to be raised and cord wouldn't stay plugged in; had to take it out and drill hole a bit deeper. Now she plays and sounds great!

Thanks for your comment. We will try harder to offer better products and service. Looking forward to your next visit! Glarry

Always impressed. Looked great and played well right out of the box. My student loved it. The action is fine but he will be taking it to a luthier for very minor adjustment. He probably just wants to show it off.

I wanted to try a glarry and I liked the the look of the semihollow guitar. I found the guitar in good playable condition out of the box. It was well more than triple the cost. The finish was excellent and the sound was very good.

The positives outweigh the negatives with this guitar. I got the natural finish and it's beautiful and the pickups are very good and I will not change them, I have 7 Tellys and I know how a Telly is supposed to sound. The problem is the neck, it's a baseball bat and the position dots are painted on and began to smear as soon as i played it. Fortunately I had a spare Telly neck that matched the body color perfectly, I put on locking tuners and this guitar is a gem. If Glarry would provide a n ...

I just took my new guitar Saturday plugged it in and played it outdoors in the park with my band mates and it was perfect all I got was compliments you did a great job on this hollow telly other people have complained that maybe they had to get it set up or do whatever not me. I'm lending this instrument to a friend of mine while his are in repair so while it may not play it for a month or two it was an absolute success all I had to do was tune it up thank you

The guitar arrived promptly and I appreciate that. I love the guitar and the finish but it gets a lot of fret buzz on the low E (6) string. So I will have to take it to a guitar repair store to adjust the neck. Thanks, Barry

A quick review! I recieved the Semi Hollow Telecaster as advertised and has great bones for the $$$. Expect to do some or all othe following... The intonation was not quite right, andfound out that it was mainly because of the Plastic Nut being a bit too high which I could have filed and sanded but decided just to replace with a Fender Tele 42mm Bone Nut, and presto! :) Knew the guitar would probably have to be setup (Other reviews) and tweaked as most do, but I like doing that stuff. So I foll ...

UPDATE: (3 stars) Major issue found but after I had setup in the first review. 1. The Bolt On Neck scews were not seated straight, and were apparently hand drilled at an angle? (See pictures) 2. Also these screws were screwed threw the Basswood body and into the Maple neck. The Fix? Was to do like Fender does and drill Pilot holes the same size as screws through the body, this allowed just enough relief to allow the Neck to seat properly into the pocket and screw heads to set flush in the Bo ...

Very good guitar. With a setup and a few adjustments it will be awesome. Great tone ! Great job Glarry

After delivery of my guitar I brought it to a local guitar tech for a change of strings and adjustment tune up. Upon inspection he found the frets were not level and the ends were noticeable rough. After some discussion with my customer support specialist Lin the added cost to fix this issue was adjusted to my credit card. I could not have been more satisfied with how my issue was taken care of in a timely manner. My dealings with Glarry from start to finish were positive in every way.

I ordered the guitar the 3rd, and it has arrived on the fifth, amazing. As the weather is cold, I will let it set overnight, however i was here when it arrived right off the truck. No dings or scratches to mention, no string buzz, but I will not tune it until it sets overnight. It has a lot of neck back bow, but that will easily be remedied with some neck relief adjusting the truss rod counter clockwise a 1/4" turn at a time. I will of course put some new strings on it. I am impressed with its l ...

I have read many reviews about glary guitars, people were always finding flaws with their instrument. I received mine and it was flawless..a beautiful guitar. The tuners were cheap as everyone else has stated. I replaced the tuners, added new fender strings, oiled the fretboard as well as the neck. I lowered the action and to my suprise the innotation was spot on.very happy with this guitar.

The guitar arrived safely and quick. The neck: good fret work, plays well kinda chunky, action was not bad. The body: very nice finish, nice binding. Now the bad: the bridge pick up doesn't work at all. Nothing but buzzing. I'm going to have to go under the hood and have a look. Hopefully it's a simple fix. How a guitar could pass a quality control inspection with a pickup not working is puzzling. Having about 3 hours playing time on this guitar, the neck looks like an older guitar. Good guitar ...

Sorry, I will report your question to the technician for follow-up. I guess the solder line is loose due to logistics. If you have any other questions, you can also contact us at [email protected]

I had purchased a Glarry GL Electric Dark Blue Bass, which was exceptional. So I went ahead and bought this GTL semi hollow body tele copy. Unfortunately this one was not satisfying at all. The body work , color, and overall construction is very nice. Even the neck fret edges are fine. But the play-ability is bad. The nut was not cut correctly, causing the action in the first 3 frets to be too high, which effects the string to string tuning; and even worse the bridge does not appear to be c ...

This is my second Glarry guitar. I bought the 502 acoustic over a year ago from Overstock. Both guitars are like the "Ford Escort" of guitars. Not the fanciest ride out there, but they will get you where you are going. Especially the semi-hollow Telecaster. The quality is excellent. The neck is straight, and the body is well made. The neck pickup sounds really good. I am not sure about the tuners yet, because I have only had the guitar a few days and I have had it in and out of the outdoors, so ...

Such an odd experience. The guitar arrived with a completely marred finish. I contacted customer service with the attached image illustrating how bad it looks. I was offered a $40 refund to keep an unusable guitar for $80 total. I proposed I would rather help with the shipping expenses to have it fully replaced and I never got a response. So I just gave up and told customer service to forget it. It's few days later now and I really regret letting the issue drop. The guitar looks ridiculous and t ...

Great Guitar & fantastic value for the money! I have purchased budget guitars in the past including the Glarry GST model but this new F hole Telecaster is the best. The quality has definitely improved with Glarry guitars in my opinion. The neck is very smooth and there are no fret sprouts at all. You can run your hands down both sides of the fretboard and it's very smooth so a really nice surprise. In addition, the fretboard edges have a slight roundness to them so that adds to the comfort of th ...
