My excellent wife really surprised me on Christmas morning. Under our tree (or more correctly beside it) was a long box wrapped with paper. The size of the box screamed GUITAR. Not daring to assume what it may be, although it had been no secret I would like to have a BP Tele, I eagerly unwrapped it only to find the guitar I had been hoping for. I know a new guitar almost always elicits praise but I must say I am impressed with this guitar. It is very light and the neck reminds me of the Clapton Signature neck. It is very comfortable in the hand and sounds really great. This is my first relic guitar and I would not normally be attracted to one but in this case the proof is in the pudding. I am very happy with it and with my wife, too.
