Would love to know how these guitars stack up against telecasters in the same price range, playability wise and tonally.. Does anyone have any experience with them?

Got a Session Custom that I bought about 3 years ago... A VERY versatile guitar with the revoicer and 5 way switching. A tele its not, mainly because of the lack of a bridge plate, so you're missing that effect. OTOH, the 12" radius neck is a joy to play and the neck/body cutaway is a real aid to getting to those higher notes. Mine doesn't get as much play as my teles as I'm playing alot of alt country these days; every few months I think of selling, but then reconsider as its a nice alternative to grab if you need a real workhorse guitar that covers a huge tonal range.

I have tried a couple. First one was set up much better than the second one. Thought they sound great. Was debating getting one, shoulda grabbed the first one as I didn't like the finish on the second one. Don't see them around often(session custom). They have a trem which teles don't. I would grab one of the price and finish was right.

Aren't they around $1500?
Nice guitar tho.
They are $1095.00 at L & M. They are more money but they are also more guitar.

My mistake. I was thinking of the Summit Classic with P-rails.
You probably weren't wearing your glasses. (The ones in your avatar):D

The Passion Custom (the Whiskey is so sexy) are way more my speed than either the Triple Play or Summit. I just wish they had a version with a hard tail and rosewood board (anything but maple really). ... but not really because then I might have to buy it.

I would love a passion triple play version. I would love a triple play in general as i like messing around with midi. Might have to look into that session guitar.

I know my seagull and la patrie guitars play like they should be almost twice the cost. Thats the beauty of equipment made in canada

I have the RG3 Passion, a very stable and well made instrument.
My only mod was to change out their pups with some old stacked coils from one of their early models that I have transplanted from guitar to guitar.
I have had alot of guitars that have come and gone over the years...'56...'69 and mid 70's Strats...early 70's LP Custom.....Goldtops..335's..LP Juniors..L6S..Veleno....P.R.S. ....many, many newer American Strats/Tele's etc. and a few good Squires to boot.
The Godin is every bit as good as anything I have played, it's the only guitar that I have now.
If the chambered body on the one U R looking at is similar to the RG3....the tones will be great, very open and tons of sustain....it should be a winner.
