I hope that I'm not out of line here but I can't help sharing this listing. This partscaster has been for sale for a few months on my local CL. Here's the verbiage... "Reduced to $400. This is the lowest I can go. This is a tele style guitar relic'd by a professional guitar artist. It IS NOT a Fender. He made it from parts and did a great job. I have installed a little hotter hand wound Alnico V bridge pickup that sounds great. The neck is super slick and comfortable. It's a great playing and sounding tele that gets a lot of attention. I have it tuned to Open G for my Keef chords, that's why there is no top E string.I will include a gig bag with purchase of the guitar. I accept cash and PayPal straight money transfer." I'm not against a tasteful relic job but...REALLY?!!!!
