    Not really familiar with this guy.......but his signature Tele really ticks off all the boxes for me.

    Anyone here try one?

    looks nice. Teles with 6 saddles just don't look right to me.

    Is that a black binding peeking over the edge, or some photoshop whoopsie?

    If you're not familiar with Britt Daniel, you should be......look for Spoon on Youtube. But, buying his signature model won't make you sound like him....sorry.
    Saddles and/or bridges can be changed. ;)

    I saw Spoon last summer and though I was pretty far back, it looked like he was playing this guitar.
    That was before I knew he had a signature model.

    He's been playing a similar thinline for years, but I don't think it was his sig model... this was back in 2014, looks very similar but it's not his sig. Could have been using prototypes for a while I guess though. Hard to know really...

    Never tried one, but looks pretty great! Wish I could afford one. Been a Spoon fan for a long time! Britt’s always had an affinity For semi hollow bodies. In the early Spoon days he used an acoustic with a single coil pickup and he got all kinds of great fuzz out of that. Then he graduated to some kind of epiphone, then when he could afford an ES-335 he got one of those and used it for a long time. At some point he switched to Teles and fender offered to build him a signature guitar. He’s said he really likes the light weight!

    He moved to Seattle a number of years ago. Pretty sure he's still there. The rest of the band remains here.

    I liked the tele because it's a fat necked thinline. You dont see that often. And the Gold color and black binding are killer

    I'm aware bridges can be changed. I wouldn't buy a $2,000 signature guitar and change the bridge. Maybe that's just me.
