When I sold my AVRI Blackguard to buy a 2012 Select Telecaster a poster with humor wrote the above caption. It was funny since that is a 9 year old guitar. Had to laugh. Could not get used to compound neck. Kept it less than a year. My point is my 2020 Pro II Tele with Pine body coming Tuesday. On UTube a guy that had his Pro II for several months opened it up. The pup cavities were black...he thought maybe shielding paint, but the kicker is there a PC board he thinks. Was going to save for AVRI, but these Pine guitars seem to check all of my boxes. Wish me luck...its online.
