    I figured with all the AVRI '64 love in the air lately, I may as well jump on the band-wagon and see what the fuss is about. Picked this up last night for a great price - excellent condition apart from one or two tiny edge dings.

    Congrats my friend. It looks sweet. That very dark RW fingerboard in particular is killer, IMO.

    Awesome! I just got one in the same finish a couple of weeks ago and I can't put it down.

    Thanks, guys. Yeah - I like the rich colour of the board too, BAListic.

    I came very close to getting one the same colour as yours, Pond, but it was too much of a drive, and I got a screaming deal I couldn't pass up on this one.

    I've always had maple board Teles - this one almost feels like an acoustic when I play, and I prefer playing acoustics, so I'm very happy with it thus far. I do find the pickups a little lower OP than I prefer, so I may yank and store these, but the guitar itself blows the two hand-builds I've had done out of the water, and with limited playing on it, I can already say it's one the best, if not THE best Tele I've owned or played (from a bank of many).

    I'm very happy with it - I wish it had more grain showing but it is a great weight, and the neck is extremely comfortable. I love black guards on triple burst, but that's usually with a maple neck - I wonder how it would look with a rosewood board.
