    As far as modern-looking guitars, it's pretty cool. If it were mine, I'd add a big hornet decal on it somewhere. But not something, I'd buy, personally speaking.

    Apprentice: “what if I made every conceivable weird choice on one guitar?”
    Master: “and you’re going to paint it bus yellow?”
    Appreciate: “I said EVERY weird choice, Greg.”

    Beautiful flamed maple neck. Is the fingerboard ebony or dark rosewood? What is the finish?

    Bed poop.

    Black hardware ain't happening on a Tele, too high performance looking. Flame figured necks just look wrong on a Tele. They're utilitarian working tools of the proletariat. And a black Bigsby? IMO Paul Bigsby would roll over in his grave PaulBigsby.jpg

    seconded on should have put a JM trem on it, especially the am pro ii one - deep dive, modern enough looking, but still fender canon.

    that bigsby just looks old-timey and weird...aesthetically wrong.

    and it doesn't need a flame maple neck, that also seems kind of old-timey. i'm really tired of the "flame maple goes on everything" schtick. the 90s and 00s with flame maple everything all the time really soured that for me. something plain with a nice grain pattern is just the best choice sometimes.

    i also hate humbuckers in the bridge position on a tele, i think they're totally unnecessary - but that's a personal playing preference, not really an aesthetic one.

    but graffiti yellow is always a cool choice in my book, especially if you try to make the guitar look very formula one or japanese mecha or something, like they sort of did.

    If it plays great, I'd be good with it. Cosmetics are important to me, but playability is foremost in my book.

    Makes me think of this, which is definitely HOT. The Fender version, less so, but I'd still play the **** out of it.

    It’s a clean look. I don’t hate it. It’s a bit “Baywatch” for my taste, but..,

    As always: "I hate the Bigsby". Also, put a normal bridge onto the thing ...
