    Was in Guitar Center today. They had 2 new copperburst MIM teles right next to the MIM silverburst. I thought it looked terrible. But, YMMV.

    I agree with you. Didn't like it at all.

    I got to disagree. They had the one here next to some of the the new MIM styles and I liked it.

    I liked the look of it - but it seemed on the heavy side to me.

    Any pics of this? What is the actual burst? Does it go from cpper to a black edge? or something to a copper edge?

    NO! I just bought a Blacktop...an Antigua would certainly mean a divorce.

    I just stopped by the Syracuse, NY GC, no Copperburst (would have taken a picture) but they did have another Silverburst (I got the first one of those.)

    I am also wondering are they Copper to Black like the Silverburst or Cream to Copper like a Danelectro?

    Copper to black. Just like the silverburst except copper where the silver is. I wish they would just do a MIM copper tele.

    That would be killer, either regular production or as an FSR.

    Actually I played one of these tonight at GC. Butt ugly but excellent sounding guitar. This had an "Exclusive" sticker on the back and I thought it was a nice affordable sounding tele.
