    Surfing Craigslist, I saw this and saved a couple of the pics for posterity:

    You could say I have mixed feelings about it.

    Hmmmm. I'd give it a spin. Assert your individuality, etc., etc.

    A mate of mine has one of those Telesonic guitars Fender made about 15 years ago - set neck, Les Paul Special type mahogany body and P90s. It's a cool guitar.

    I'd put a P90 in the neck and Rock it.

    I have to say, I love the body wood & finish. So part of me thinks, "yeah nice tele body... darn pity about that." Maybe the body was created specially for this guitar.

    On the other hand, it's unique and ad says it sound great (of course).

    It looks like they screwed up and set the neck angle to shallow. They fixed it by routing a cavity to recess the bridge. If if wasn't for that it's kinda cool looking.

    It is a little messy, probably accounts for the low-ish price.

    But really, who's going to buy that? A "Fender person"? A "Les Paul person"? I doubt it. Who's left? :lol:

    That's almost always my answer. I can overlook (and even embrace) a lot of weirdnesses in a $150 guitar.
