I bought this guitar a couple of months ago. At first I thought that the tone was not so great but I could probably live with it. Then I finally figured out that it's real problem is that the intonation is off by quite a bit. If you only play open chords it may work for you but I like to play up & down the neck and it sounds bad. Also the scale length advertised is 23.3" but it is actually 22.1". After myself and an authorized Fender repair tech pointed this out to Fender they changed the specs on their web site but refused to do anything about this guitar, saying that it is within their specs. So I guess they figure it is Ok if the guitar cannot be tuned. The local Fender tech said he can make it right for $60.00 but Fender says that's up to me to pay. The guitar otherwise seems nicely made with a nice smooth satin finish. It's too bad Fender won't stand behind their product. I have since bought a Wechter #1710 travel guitar and It is far superior to the TG-4 You can actually tune it so that you can play up the neck. And it has a much nicer tone.
Usable travel guitar for a very competitive price. Doesn't sound as good as a Larevee parlor, but still presents pretty good sound and playability for less than a third the price. I think its a great value . . . a guitar that I can actually make music with that I'm not afraid to haul around to fun places.
Good price, tone, and quality for what it was made for.
Very nice. I was impressed with the quality of the solid spruce top, as well as the very attractive wood laminate back and sides and the real wood fret board. It sounded very good out of the box, and much better yet after my guitar tech gave it a bone saddle and tweeked the set-up. Gig bag is ok, not as nice as the Martin LXM's. I've had it about a year and a half and it seems quite stable. An excellent instrument for when you don't dare carry along that vintage dream guitar (and why else would you need a travel guitar?) Great value for the money.
