    Nope. They look good, though. They have a Squier version? I have a Fender appetite and a Squier budget.

    I saw it a few days ago, and I don’t really get it. It’s cool that the whole rig is custom shop, but that’s a weird theme for them to choose. I realize that someone will purchase it simply as an investment piece, but if one of the builders on this forum made that telecaster, I think it would take forever to sell, and probably after a bunch of haggling. Just my two cents.

    It's cool that they involved Brad Davis in this. Fu Manchu sure loves Truckin'! I would like to try out the Creepy Fingers Low Muff.

    Fugly, overpriced and just yuck!

    Proof again that Fender and their dealers has no sense of what’s right.

    Great for a Dentist, Surgeon, Banker, Broker, Lawyer’s collection.

    If I was going to spend that much, this set up wouldn’t be my choice. Sorry - just don’t like it

    Talk about trying hard to push the concept. I like the amp, but wouldn't a "Fun Truckin'" amp really be a Kustom solid state with the roll-and-tuck vinyl covering? And what kind of era-correct music would one play with that getup in the first place? Eagles covers? Rich people are weird.

    Are those Filtertrons on a Tele? I'm sure it has been done before, but I don't think I've seen it. Looks wrong. Probably sounds wrong, too. Isn't that what a Duo Jet is for?

    Can't beat the price though...

    incoming huffing and puffing from covert 10%-ers and 10%-er wannabes.

    If I spent that much money on something, I’d have to be able to drive around in it for about seven years.

    For that price I would get this guitar and get the car thrown in for that amount.
