Shijie TLV Classic (Daphne Blue, Teal Green Metallic, Shell Pink, Vintage White, Pearl Green, Black, Gold) - Extended Delivery time may exist.
Tele's strength is its unassuming simplicity, its place as the protean ground zero for all other solid body electric guitars. The sounds of country - bright twang, double stops, chicken pickin' - will forever be married to the Tele but the model has been used by trailblazing artists in nearly every genre. Artists like Bruce Springsteen, Jimmy page (early years) and Keith Richards, all have used Tele's to create the Tele-fueled riffs. Those early sounds of twang, bite and snap are still what define its legacy and earn our ongoing love.
The Shijie Tele conjures images of brightness, clarity and smoothness, The brightness when played is astounding but also warmth that others lack, the Shijie Tele has a superb neck, modern C type style. Wilkinson Deluxe tuners. HIJIE CT1 set pickups from Japan that deliver warmth that another Tele's sometimes lack. Tone is definitely Tele like with its own personality.
Fit and Finish of the highest quality, the neck is the star of the show. Tone smoother and rounder. While low EQ the bridge has a defined snarl. With a 12-inch radius they are shaped to fit in an average adult’s hands and are not too slim to make it difficult to play one string at a time.This guitar is light and so it is not difficult to carry around and are easier to keep playing. The shape of the neck is also pretty nifty, as the neck with stainless steel frets has been designed to help even further in the attempt to make their guitars easy to work with. Shijie guitars are professional playing guitars and are made to be played.
Shijie Classic utilizes high quality Wilkinson Deluxe tuners, that come affixed to a roasted Canadian maple neck and fretboard that makes playability easy as and that compliments the bone nut. The frets are nickel and are rolled to assist hand movement. A 12-inch radius is provided that is flatter for more modern playing and on the back a contour heal joint with internal extremely clean finishing, that overall depicts the quality control of the guitars produced. Wilkinson WTB with great quality alpha pots.
Quality control is excellent with all electronics areas and wires shielded to deliver a perfect sound without unwanted hum or interruption. All guitars are inspected and set individually at the factory. In Australia further quality checks are performed and setups re-established before delivery. If any faults are found (this has never happened to date) the guitar will be returned while another one ordered, or money refunded.
The sound quality of Shijie guitars is amazing, especially when you take into consideration the price. Their guitars have sound quality that can go up against models from the largest companies while being much cheaper than said models. This makes them an excellent choice for intermediate and advanced players alike, as they have features that are easy to use for players of almost all skill levels. Once you get the hang of their features, you can use said features to produce sounds of multiple different varieties, making their guitars a great option if you are also part of a band.
Shijie do match the competitions challenge. Reviews from many players including Daryl Braun (see review) state the build and detail were excellent with the best pickups. The Guitar also comes with a soft gig bag not provided by Fender or Ibanez.
