What the heck, man? Can you please title your post "jazztele should not click on this" next time?


Seriously though, 300 bucks? Almost falls into the "why the hell not?" category...

I can not buy anything for awhile. I will not look at anything closely relating to pics of guitars that you can pick up for a pitance so to speak. Just put a new furnace in and that about tapped us out. Oh yea that and my daughter's transmission repair we paid for. Oh yea and the alternator that I put in the college car. Oh yea the snow tires we had to put on the back of my wifes' hyundai. There is something else I am forgetting, oh that's it my youngest son's college tuition in Jan. The only saving grace here is that by hook or crook I'll find a way to scarf one of these fine looking beasties. I mean I do have an inheritance coming and I don't need another shovelhead or do I? thanks

As a Jazzer, I am already in love with the natural model. Durn! I wish I hadn't seen these.

Gotta agree with Penny Century, they all look nice, but the Surf Green says something special.

I really like the natural one. The knobs are interesting, reminds me of older style Vox amp knobs, like from a Super Beatle or something.

They look cool, I've been waiting for Xaviere to offer something like this. The bodies are a little squat though, sort of like Jay Turser or Arbor archtops.

I believe the pickups are Nashville retrotrons.

Yes, but you can always add one very easily.

They certainly are beautiful. I have not seen this company before. Can someone give a quick synopsis please?

Where are they on the quality scale? How so cheap? (China??, elves??)
