    Made the mistake of flicking through custom shop teles the other day on eBay and saw this. Had to trade my cs61 telecaster custom, but it was just a "wow, I've got to have that" moment.
    Cost me £300 plus the 61.
    Arrived yesterday and I've been enjoying the TV Jones powertron. Gritty, but without being so much that you can't hear what you're playing and cleans up when I roll the volume back. Surprising range of tones.

    Congrats. That guitar is a monster, I'll bet. That's something Especial indeed. I like it a lot. That's the only Cab I've seen with two knobs.

    I normally don't look twice at Cabs, but that one is really classy.

    The single pickup had two knobs, The double had a knob and a switch.

    I like this one very much! Great color.

    Thanks for the comments everyone.
    Gainsucker- great job with the copy. What pups have you got in that?
    The new guitar excitement hasn't worn off yet. It's not a guitar to play the shadows on (!), but for gritty tones, it's a beast.
    I'm a compulsive trader, but this one is going nowhere

    Beautiful. I love mine and if I could only keep one (from my slightly-too-large collection of guitars) this would be it. Hope you don't mind my posting a photo of my 2008 in Dakota red.
