    Hi. Glad to be a new member of this forum. I have enjoyed seeing pics of others' guitars and i just got this new guitar on Friday!

    I'm loving the look, feel and sound of this guitar. Feels like i'm in heaven when playing it.

    I love the thick neck profile, which sort of reminds me of a LP feel. My right arm really locks into the bridge with no problem and the high output texas special pickups seem to provide serious articulation.

    I highly recomend this guitar. Here are some pics and a video:

    I'm loving the neck profile of this guitar. It's thick like a LP. If i got to spec out my own custom guitar, i'd keep it exactly like this.

    I've always said that les paul's are my fav feeling guitars and strats are my fav sounding. I didn't own this telecaster before. Now, i'm confused!
