Maybe she just got her braces off LOL Just kidding..she's a real nice looking girl.
Many thanks for posting - oh GOD, I want that vintage hotroad telecaster. I love the firebird neck sound. Oh boy, gonna have to sell it to the missus. Please tell me that this isn't a custom shop (ie expensive) model.
it's not a custom shop. Just like the 52 reissue with some special twists...probably about $1500 to $1600 to start
Yep, GC has it for $1600.
Phewph I was worried it'd be expensive, $1600 is nothing.. [/sarcasm] =/
All I have to say about the Palo Escrito is:
Lovely to look at
A marvel to hold
But how it plays
Is the story to be told
I'm not always sold on pretty guitars. It's a bit too showy for my taste.
I think it's very tasteful, a lot of pretty guitars look best on the wall, but that one looks like it would look better round my neck.
Ahem. That's MY neck, sonny boy.
Hey look, Hendrix and Beck are jamming over there! *runs*
Anyone make it out to see ole Marc Ford?
Thanks austintele and OutlawSteph1975,
Agree with J-Man, too rich for my blood. Hopefully will release a MIM version that I can modify with Duncan pickups.
Oh well, continue dreaming.
I'm with Stephen on this one. Leave it out.
Johnny Crash, nice pics!

RelicStrat ........... Do you recall if this guitar had a Telecaster headstock ........... It looks like a Yuri Shishkov special.
I for one would like to give you a big ...... Thanks ....... for sharing the pictures
Wow, I would not have noticed the Tele headstock in a million years, but you are correct, it is. You may not be able to make it out in this pic. If you want a full res, unmolested pic, just PM me and I'll email it to you. You are also correct about it being a Yuri S. Masterbuilt.
And you are welcome jwells. This place has been a great source of knowledge and enjoyment for me over the past four years and it's my once a year way of being able to repay and saying thanks to everyone for a great forum.
I love you more than words can express.
I almost had the red sparkle CS in my coat and out the door when I was distracted by the wall full of Gretsches.
<<She's just a girl trying to make a couple bucks as a model, perfect in her own right. It is not a crime to be rude, it's just obnoxious.>>
Most of the time I just shrug my shoulders and move on if someone's a little crude here. Sometimes you gotta make a stand. I think she's beautiful. It's what's in your heart that really counts anyway. My .02.
What a if man were making a "guitar face" and showing a little teeth and gums? Would it be fair to criticize that? Is there some sort of double standard operating here, a chivalrous (I'm using this in place of a more inflammatory term) notion that a woman should be spared this criticism?
Correct me if I'm wrong: She's a "model" working a guitar booth, hired because it is believed her sex appeal will attract customers. We're in Hooters territory, as far as base, lowest-common-denominator marketing techniques are concerned.
If I were in the business of coaching models, I would certainly tell her to keep that upper lip down and not to show so much teeth and gums. Given the circumstances, it's a fair criticism. It may be rude to say she "stinks" (which I did not do), but I can't see how it's out of line to say "Me no like" and point out why, when others are saying, "Hot damn! She's so purdy!"
