Hi all, I was curious if any other Tele owners here might have ever owned or played a Minarik?:?: They are pretty cool guitars with some really unique models. Not for everyone, but i have a Lotus Studio in Antique Cream finish and its is probably the most plain Jane of the colors and designs in the Minarik line. The guitar is the 117th one ever made in this design according to the serial number. It plays and sounds fantastic with that Les Paul Vibe and feel only it has a much deeper bottom end and no archtop. The body contours and unique heel on the set neck make it fit the body well and a joy to play.
