    Neat to look at though.
    If you play a Waylon lick and it would probably come out sounding like Devo!

    I'd probably toss a bid on it were I in the market for an oddball guitar. Looks like nice wood, and nobody would want to steal it!! :lol:

    :confused:

    Reported WHAT, exactly? The guy referred to it as a "VHA Handmade Fender Telecaster Vintage Style Guitar". In the sellers eyes, he feels it IS a "Fender Telecaster Style" guitar - but he DOES say that it is handmade by VHA:

    Ok, we all know that he has used the words "Fender" and "Telecaster" simply to ensure that his guitar shows up when folks do a particular search. Hardly a crime?

    To be fair, if you're going to "report" this eBay auction, you really ought to be consistent and report the THOUSANDS of other sellers who have used the words "Fender", "Stratocaster", "Strat", "Telecaster" or "Tele" in conjunction with the word "style".

    Lighten up and don't take things so personally! The guy is going to have a 0.0001% chance of selling that "guitar" as it is - let him have his moment of "fame" while we all enjoy a chuckle at his expense....:lol:

    It's actually a VHA Quadratone GS and the seller is incorrect to call it a tele. Not some weird homebrew partcaster. Probably very well made if you like that kind of everything including the kitchen sink. How many switches and knobses?. Does anyone including the pirlock wot made it know what they all do? Looks like he got carried away and got polyrepepetetetetive and didn't know when to stop building it

    Ouch...

    I should not have looked. I found it so traumatic that I had to wash my eyes out with a Google search on Emily Scott.:eek:

    Must admit I found the sales blurb totally ridiculous but not sure I'd have gone as far as reporting him. Someone's really going to mistake that for a genuine Tele...? I think not! ( I hope not!!!)

    At least he's doing his own thing, not just the same old same old.
