The one I received was first rate. The plastic nut is not the greatest but the neck was very comfortable and well finished. The frets were just perfect - not fancy but definitely not sharp. The set up was actually pretty much spot on. The string height was great and the intonation was really good for a barrel bridge. Sounds very much like a telecaster. Nice mellow sound In the neck position and lots of bite in the bridge. A great deal for the price. See my YouTube review for sound samples. Glarr ...

On a scale of 1-10 it's a strong 8. The neck is a little chunky. I know some people prefer a neck unvarnished however I do like a varnished neck.so I will do that. It sounds great and looks awesome. I think if the binding were done in the f hole as well that would look really sharp. I'm going to pin stripe it. I had to adjust the neck some that did not take long then had to adjust the string height a little. Tuned it up and it is a great sounding guitar. Is it a Fender of course not but for this ...

Just got the GTL Semi-Hollow SS. In the Orange color. WOW! What a beautiful guitar! Far exceeds my expectations. I've bought 9 Glarry instruments. I am the president of the Glarry Club on Talkbass. Glarry sure went the extra mile on this guitar. Neck finish is extremely beautiful and smooth. Well done. The guitar body is perfect. The color very nice! Pickups sound great! Probably the nicest Tele Style I've bought from any manufacturer. Glarry has indeed upped their game on this one! Very happy ...

Very good entry level guitar at a more than reasonable price. A setup including new strings, an intonation adjustment and a little steel wool on a rough neck and it was good to go. I didn't care for the garish metallic flake pick guard, but that is my personal taste. The rest of the instrument was very well done with no observable flaws. Good job Glarry!

What a great guitar. Is it flawless, no... but with a tweak here and there you will not find a better axe for the money. After turning it into the guitar that I always wanted, I couldn't be happier.

From out of the box to straight in my hands, this piece is NOOOIIIIIIICE!!!!!! (nice) Good bright sound!!! Its got that "twang" just like a Tele is supposed to have!!! I really didn't have to do much with this one as far as setting up to play it, which makes it all that much more sweet!!!! This is one of two that I bought from here online.......THEY DID NOT DISAPPOINT!! Now, I'm gonna have to let my card cool off from the 7th purchase of a Glarry axe that I've purchased!!!!!........GOOD DEAL!!!! ...

I have had this guitar for a few weeks, I am a retired Fender guitar tech from Nashville. I had to cut the nut, the 3 way switch was wired wrong, but i have to tell you this tele is out standing, my action is 2/64ths at the 12th fret, no fret buzz, plays great, and people who say the pickups are weak do not know what they are talking about, they are higher output than most, i remove the cover from the neck pickup, this gives it more output, and a brighter sound. the finish is great , nice light ...

Amazing. At first I have this teli knock off 4 stars but after filing the nut & changing the strings. I tweeked the neck and did the intonation. Guitar plays amazing. It will play better when breaks in in a few months. What a winner. And i have an american strat and teli, so I know. Different yes but amazing all the same.

I like Glarry guitars,it's a lot of guitar for the money but not really playable without a good set up.

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.

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

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 ...

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.

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 ...
