    Just when I thought I was all done with GAS, they went and released a new batch of FSR Paisleys and Florals in the UK. I have to confess that this has caused me to fall off the wagon.
    I always thought that the Pink Paisley was cooler than the Blue Floral, but not £300 cooler (that's about $375 in American), which is the price difference here.
    I've got to say that the build quality is excellent and in places surpasses my 52 AVRI. Plan A was to put a few miles on it than change the saddles for compensated brass ones but right now I love the sound as it is, and the intonation is pretty damn close.
    Anyway here she is :

    I think Fender had a limited run DRRI in that blue flowered pattern as well - I remember seeing them a few years ago. It would match your Tele!

    How's your GAS now? :lol::lol::lol:

    Beautiful, and really good guitars. I so nearly bought one when they were in the UK shops a few years ago... if I see one next time I'm in Red Dog Music I might just have to give in!

    I wasn't aware that those MIJ Pink and Blue fancies were ever out of production! I have to admit to a bit of envy...

    Congrats OP!

    Hope it inspires you~ (I know it did for me :D). I never realized the metallic/silver flower in the pattern. My tele has aged/yellowed quite a bit from the original color over the years, so I wouldn't have known. Nothing sparkles except my face from sweat lol.
