    I've played with my buddy Gary for 31 years. He has a couple of nice Martins, a 59 reissue Lester and a CS Strat. Never expressed any interest in a Tele at all. We got together with another pal the other day to play and he pulls this out. Says he's been eyeing it for a while and finally pulled the trigger. The pictures dont do it justice but I've never seen a prettier neck. It's flamed and Birdseye.

    That guitar looks familiar, I think I've seen it posted on this site at some point (or something very similarly pinstriped, maybe Mike Eldred posted it.) Very cool, how does it sound?

    Love the pinstripes! Classy and cool. That's a sharp guitar.

    It reminds me of stuff i used to draw with that toy stencil kit (spirograph?) when I was a kid. Not my thing.

    That is what my Ms. says! Personally, I dig it. Bet it sounds like an Angel. Would love to run it through my Vicky 35115!
