    So it looks like a Telecaster and a Pre war Martin D 28 had a baby. A very beautiful baby!!
    I want this baby!

    Um. That does look pretty good. Guess I'll have to build one. That sucker costs more than I paid for my Tacoma....new from the dealer. :confused:

    It might look way better with the traditional maple neck and ash body, yup. But I still "Like it a lah" (picture Jim Carrey's voice)

    I saw "herringbone", and initially thought "Oh, I bet this is going to be HIDEOUS!!!" :eek:

    I was pleasantly surprised - that is one classy looking Tele!!

    They're only making 30 of those! So if you want one you'd better decide fast and figure out how to order it.

    I like the pickguard. Thick single ply tortoise in the tuff dog shape.
