    Nice - a classic look, and sounds like a tele should!
    Great demo without any melodrama, just showing off what it is there.

    Nice. Always liked the look of a double bound Tele. Sounds great too.

    So well said.

    Ladies and Gentlemen, if you wanna know what a video demo is supposed to look and sound like, this is picture perfect. Picture perfect. Keep your mouth shut and let your fingers do the talking.

    On another note, I think this guitar would be even better, without the binding. Beautiful body color, beautiful rosewood board - you don't need binding and if you did, you'd do it in silver inlay.

    All of that young man’s demos are like that. He’s a helluva player.

    Indeed, if I were in the market for a new Tele, it would be double bound.

    The guitar in the OP's video is nice looking. I generally gravitate towards unbound Tele's, just as a subjective personal preference, but I agree this one is attractive.

    Sorry Boris, I think it looks amazing with the double bound as it is. Though the silver sounds intriguing.
