Someone pry this Cabronita Tele out of my hands, or I am not going to accomplish a darned thing today! If you regularly read our website, you know that I (Trevor, Wildwood's resident Guitar Scribe) have a deep and abiding love for single-pickup guitars, and this one is one of my favorites. It has one TV Jones Power'tron, which (and this is my opinion, so your mileage may vary) is pretty much a perfect pickup. It has exceptional warmth and punching power in the midrange, and the lows are round and well-defined. When you play single-notes, the high-end stays nice and smooth. But, when you play chords, you get plenty of silvery sparkling overtones to bloom in the trebles, so you can still get that good 'ol sparkle-punch combo!
This guitar also has excellent sustain, which makes you want to take expressive wailing guitar solos all day instead of working. Its warm, punchy tone, and its clarity make it a spectacular rhythm guitar. It's the sort of sound that works well in just about every musical context, and it's a lot of fun because it's Fender-y but off the beaten path enough to sound fresh and exciting. Anyone looking for a single-pickup guitar that totally rips would do well to add this Cabronita to their quiver!
