    If the baby was that ugly, the doctor would probably slap the mother....

    I like the inlays. I like it all.

    It's a tele. It will sound like a tele. And a tele can sound like whatever you want it to.

    It looks fun. But I'm a little concerned about that bridge plate. Looks like a mini ashtray on there or something. Is that going to get in the way of palm muting?

    The body shape on that thing is totally rad. It looks like something Paul Gilbert would play. I like it.

    With a rosewood board and dots, that thing would be hard for me to resist.

    I'm just the opposite; I can't stand those little Gretsch-style Thumbnail markers on the side. I look right past them and get lost!

    Lucius Paisley,

    I love love LOVE the Fender Meteora, especially in that butterscotch blonde finish, with the wood grain showing thru.

    I can always buy another Tele that looks pretty much like every other Tele.
    But that beast is a one of a kind naughty girl.

    :)

    i dig the inlays, but not having black binding is a major screw up. it doesn't look totally right without that.

    Probably a good result. Can you imagine what that thing would look like upside down?

    The double humbucker model looks like an improved version of the G&L Fallout, which really is an ugly guitar.

    This is what happens when you give Frankenstein some wood and tools. And I beg to differ on the Fallout... :D

    I liked your posted because of how much pleasure it gave me that someone could not see the Fallout as ugly. Even when the world is not a good place TDPRI can be.

    First question is how does it feel and second is how does it sound? That would be all that matters to me. It is not how a guitar looks that is a showstopper for me but rather the sound and feel.
