Just saw this online somewhere. It's listed as a marbleized finish, and I suppose it is, but it just looks like uncooked bacon?
Are these egregious?
No those aren't.
That square thang is so cool!
The Telecaster for ants. It needs to be at least 3 times bigger!
Where are you taking this,... thing...
wow, check this out, it's the most atrocious one I've ever seen (the other ones I posted I kind of liked):
Love this. Nothing egregious about it.
I've never used the word egregious, but this is a dangdoodle cool thread!!!
You've never used the word egregious, but I've never even heard of "dangdoodle" before... haha
I like Fenders, I like Telecasters, and I like offsets but I don't like Fenders new offset tele.
Don't knock the Haymans (not that you necessarily were) - they were actually bloody good guitars in their own right. Sure, the bodies were a bit Tele-inspired, but the necks were sublime. I've owned three; two 3030H models with twin Re-An humbuckers and a Modular, similar but with interchangeable control panels for various switching options.
Jim Burns had a lot of design influence in the neck and truss rod configuration. However, they weren't built by Burns, but by Jack Golder's Shergold Woodcrafts in Romford, Essex. After Dallas Arbiter ceased trading and the Hayman brand became defunct, the very similar Shergold guitars continued in production, distributed by Barnes and Mullins. I was speaking with Jack not long before he sadly passed away in 1992 and he told me the whole story, which is too long to recount here.
But it's a shame Haymans and Shergolds didn't achieve greater success, because they deserved it.
