Filed under "somebody had to do it..." like the Silver Sky purchase, I just had to pull the trigger on the new Ultra series in Texas Tea. Keith from @fivewattworld would be proud - I unloaded three guitars to add only one I think my motivation is pure: Playability - I loved my Nocaster reissue with the baseball bat neck, but frankly I just run out of steam playing up the neck. I have to face facts when it comes to age and stamina. Playability - The compound radius from 10 to 14 inches is, in a word, terrific. Sound/Tone - Have you heard the series/parallel sound? Works for me. Sound/Tone - For me, these pups have all of the Tele twang goodness and by gosh, they're actually, really, quiet. Perfect? Nope. But miles - miles - better. Looks - Oh man, this Texas Tea. To paraphrase a certain British Captain, I want my truck to be this color! Couple of pics, I know that the InterGoogle is full of them right now but I tried to catch the light the right way for the TT finish. Onward and onward!
