    Very cool. Wonder how much they'll go for.

    Yup! Heads up on this one. Mike was generous enough to let me play the original a couple of years ago. I'd love to get my hands on one.

    Apparently only 30 made - and all pre-sold. Uggh.

    30 made, I guess I wouldn't have been able to afford it anyway.

    I loved the overall look of that guitar with the exception of the ultra-worn pickguard. Is that a Strat switch tip?

    Nice cause. I don't get the whole - copy a used and abused guitar at a particular snapshot in time thing. Why would I want a broken nut and a soldering burn that wasn't put there working on my guitar. I guess that makes me not the target audience. But I hope they sell them out. Mike's a huge influence and it's a nice cause.

    See his tweed Excelsior in the background... over a year ago he said in an interview that a Heartbreaker Excelsior would come out soon. I wonder if that's next, maybe for the same cause?

    Very cool. Had no idea he had the Tazzy Fund.

    I love dogs. And I love Telecasters. Nice job, Mike!

    That's a good looking guitar whether you go for the relicing thing or not.

    Have always dug his playing style.

    £2,949 apparently in the uk.
    Shame when his is a broadcaster, they've made it as a nocaster. Still looks a cool guitar though

    "Sole-der" is the British pronunciation. Maybe he has a British guitar tech?

    I guess the original Trademark issues with the use of "Broadcaster" are still in effect.
