    Cool! I'd love a Hello Kitty Strat, shame they don't do a Tele version.

    I like it. Looks like it would be at home on stage in a biker bar.

    Its a shame the Hello Kitty pickguards are no longer available... I wanted one for Tele too. Would have to dremel it a bit.... doesnt matter now, the whole line is discontinued, believe it or not, pink hello kitty strats are going for TWICE what I paid for mine originally.

    Cool! Perhaps some inspiration gleaned from John Cipollina's SG. Also a little Clarence White action in there. NICE!!

    Heck yes I like it! But not many people seem to agree..
    Well It does provoke strong reactions in people which I guess was part of the purpose.
    This one also reminds me of Spalt guitars.. which, I assume, people will also dislike then..not only because it's not a tele :)
    Almost bought this one some time ago.. but the price tag was a bit to steep for me ($5700 / €4000)

    I'm not going to call it 'beautiful,' but it is fascinating. I could see myself playing it onstage, wearing a particularly lively Hawaiian shirt. Would work.

    I've seen this before, too. There's a Nudie sticker on it - wasn't this some sort of Clarence White tribute?

    Thought I'd seen it here before. Hey, I'd rock it! I'd never make it, but it's cool.

    Kinda looks like when I clean out that draw next to the stove evey two years. When I have taken out just abouts everything that guitar looks like what's left at the bottom.

    I think the most beautiful Telecasters are the simple plain looking ones. Not the paisley'd up things or something like... this. : T

    That's a cool guitar! I first saw it when I got this album many years ago.
