    I posted the previous thread here before this guitar arrived after I placed the order: https://www.tdpri.com/threads/ngd-coming-october-1-beautiful-walnut-top-tele.1050043/

    It arrived a few days ago and I finally had time to take some pics. It’s everything I expected and more. It’s the first guitar I’ve felt compelled to name (“Woody”). From Willcutt Guitars out of Kentucky. It’s an extremely Limited Fender Special Run to commemorate the 50th Anniversary of Willcutt Guitars. Only 50 of these were made!

    I haven’t even plugged it in yet, but I’m sure it’s going to sing like a bird. A few hours after I purchased this, I couldn’t help myself and ordered a 70th Anniversary Sunburst Esquire, too! I’ll be posting another NGD for that, too.

    Looks good. A little bit like the Rarities Red Mahogany Top from a year or so ago... very nice indeed!

    The back, the entire body except the cap, is a single piece of what looks like very light "swamp" ash. Very nice.

    I adore the way they found some walnut for the truss rod plug and skunk stripe, that's very pale in color. Nice touch.

    Of course the neck is too skinny for me, but I'm sure these will find a lot of excited owners!

    There's no stopping once you get wound up. I think a few of us have been there before.

    Congrats on the cool guitar

    I am certain when I say anyone would be proud to be seen with such a beautiful guitar. Congratulations, and know that I am pretty darn envious. Enjoy!!

    That's gorgeous! It would be super cool with a walnut fretboard too! Will they please make a Squier version so I can afford it? LOL! Like that's gonna happen! I've been begging Gibson forever to make an Epiphone non-reverse Firebird with minis and a Vibrola.

    I don't know if I've ever seen a more beautiful, more tastefully conceived guitar. I would never be able to put that down, except just to stare at it.
