    If Telecasters were meant to "fly" Leo would have named them PIG-Casters and painted them pink...and he didn't.

    Yah, but the binding is nice. It just needs some all thread, a drill, and a bigsby. There ya go, all fixed.

    I kind of like it. Saw an old Cadillac on the street a few days ago, sort of similar in proportion to other cars.

    I love Telecasters...
    I like Flying Vs...
    Les Pauls sound good in other people's hands.

    None of the three should cross-pollinate.

    I'm going to go wash my short-term memory in bleach so I can get rid of that image.

    I dearly Love Flying Vs, but both of those are just WRONG.

    Flying Paul looks better than the Tele V IMO. It's how the body pinches a bit more at the waist. Bet it weighs a ton.

    If it were free I'd play it as a joke.
    Can't part with cash for a novelty.

    Is this what was left by making the teardrop (V-front/LP-rear)?
