    Wow!
    I’ll take 1, 3, and 4, please.
    You do take travelers checks and green stamps, I assume?

    I like most of those
    I thought the working mans guitar was the simplicity of design not the cosmetics applied to that design

    Hi.

    Honestly, for me, all are really tasteless and / or trying too hard.

    But, it's all subjective.

    Wait, those are disgusting, but Buck Owens and Don Rich's Teles were ok? Do I detect a bit of hypocrisy in this thread? Also, a Broadcaster was $170 in 1950, plus another $40 for a case. Adjusted for inflation, that's $2200 today. How many working class folks can afford a $2200 guitar?

    This is true
    “Nice” guitars have always been a luxury item

    I think it’s funny when people complain about the prices of USA fenders because they are just about spot on with what they used to cost

    We've been brainwashed into becoming the "Walmart society".

    Jet Screamer has to have a guitar to play so he can woo Judy Jetson, you should be on Hanna Barberra's payroll.

    I think your designs are different enough that I wouldn’t even classify them as “T-style” guitars
    They appear to have a couple influences going on rather than just being the same old tele body

    I'd say yes to that.
    They're not cliche though. They're genuinely cool.
    There's an original vibe to them.

    Luthier Chris Larsen and his "Girl brand" guitars take the tele platform to heights nobody would ever suspect it could possibly go...

    That's real food he put in those two guitars, of course he had it prepared and cast in polyester so it wouldn't spoil and turn into mold.
