    Red Volkaert got to play my dad’s ‘53. So now there are three of us who know who the new owner is!

    yes its called 'the hackjob' lol. the 'tech' shouldnt be anywhere near a vintage guitar.
    it had survived nearly intact, what a bummer. should not have not ripped the neck off either. just my one in a million opinion. awesome tele i would repair the pickguard screw holes and touch them up since shes already been to the prom

    That might be the coolest Strat I’ve ever seen.

    I wonder why they didn't do their Tele design with the fancy scrollwork cutouts leaving some of the body exposed? Maybe their way of not having to deal with the contoured body on the Strat? It has to be the same people who did both.
