Buzz Feiten Elite Pro Cappuccino - 2012
By Buzz Feiten
Well, I didn’t know what I was getting into when I opened the case but I’ve been pleasantly surprised once again! This is a lightweight, really nicely made Telecaster-slayer. Actually it took me a while to realise it is essentially a Telecaster clone, but the clever re-working of the scratch-plate fools your eyes for a moment or two. The neck is fat and wide but feels real good to play; it feels similar to a 50’s Tele but maybe a little wider at the nut. The neck pickup and bridge pickup both share similar characteristics despite the obvious configuration differences; both dynamic and punchy with a focused mid-range. This is a really awesome twang-machine and the coil-tapped humbucker sounds fantastic. There’s a black pickguard in the case for those who like to change things around and the colour is called Cappuccino. Weight is 7.30 lbs. Comes with OHSC.
