    Background: I originally spec'd this up about 6 months ago but the dealer found me something else that took my fancy while I was waiting and so I cancelled. However he liked the spec and kept it order then when it finally came into the shop a week or so ago gave me first refusal. I didn't need much persuading :)

    It's a Journeyman relic Cabronita in Dakota Red but with the traditional Tele control plate fitted for tonal flexibility. Plays like a dream through all of my amps: It's smooth and creamy through my 57 Deluxe but is a total knockout with a bit of drive through my Dirty Shirley.

    I'll bet that sounds killer through your Dirty Shirley. Hot looking guitar. Congrats.

    Wow. Fine looking cabronita. What flavor of filtertons are those?

    Nice! Is that cabernet red? Then, you'd have a cab cab!

    Many thanks for the kind comments. I'm now on gardening duty forever according to the wife but it's worth it :p

    The pickups are TV Jones Powertrons

    Congrats on your Cab.
    I have a MIM Cab where I did mods ( bridge and tone) to get it where yours is at.
    You made a better choice than I did..
    I bet your guitar sounds great!
