    Has anyone dealt with/ played a Mario? Out of Murfreesboro Tn? Looks interesting. These got my attention. Thanks all in advance, Merry Christmas!

    MM TELE.JPG Here's mine, easily the best tele I've ever owned and will never sell it. Love everything about this guitar even the paulownia body -- gasp! Weighs in at 5.4lbs and has Fred Stuart pickups. Nasty narly twang and the neck pickup is sweet and jazzy.

    Picked one @ a gig for a set while in Texas a few years back, i really liked it. Great feel, nice tone. I was using my Vibrolux reverb that eve along with my 52 Customshop tele. Gotta say the MM was right up there with the 52 CS. Oh, and much lighter. Got me to thinking about one for myself after that, but ended up swapping the CS for a 52 Nash. If you can find a MM to try, do so. Your call @ the end of the day, good luck!

    I played a couple at the Amp Expo a few years back. Very nice guitars. One was very similar to yours with a tasteful relic job.

    I've played a few. I have two friends who own a couple; strat's and tele's. Nice guitars but, for me, not as nice as the Danocaster's I've played or a good Fender Custom Shop piece.

    I remember Guitar Player magazine several years ago reviewing at least one, maybe later or another of their guitars

    They got very very good reviews

    There was a used one in a shop I played and loved it. Very high quality, well balanced, light with a beautiful light relic finish. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one.
