    Not really a fan of the paisley pick guard so switched to pearloid, though thinking solid black or white may be in its future. But for now this looks better to me.

    Action and playability were very good out of the box. There was some "road worn" gunk on the neck/fingerboard (posted about in another thread) which is finally removed. Gave the back of the neck a quick scotch pad treatment and all is well, feels great. This thing is fun to play.

    (as often is the case, looks better in person)

    Wow. That is nice! The pearloid looks great on there, but I would also be curious about solid white.

    That’s a big improvement on the Paisley to my eye.
    Just like DLReed I’d also like to see what it would be like with white.

    Hard to compare without a "Before" picture but I think I'm already to say "NOPE". Is it still a Paisley Telecaster? Nope!

    Just my opinion. Nothing personal.

    Should have been more clear. This is a Brad Paisley Road Worn Esquire.

    I like the Paisley model very much. With the pearloid pick guard? A Paisley too, of course. Nothing has changed, except that it looks killer now!

    I dig it! Hoping to play this model someday, if I can find one locally. Very curious if I’ll like the neck shape.
