    I’ve seen a lot of guitars in my lifetime. This one stands out, for all the wrong reasons.

    One redeeming quality about this abomination is the knob in the control plate cut out on the pickguard. That's a pretty cool idea, but that's probably the only cool idea about this.

    You're entitled to your opinion, but one man's trash is another man's treasure, right?

    If you can't express yourself on your own guitar where can you? :)

    I have to say that I like the idea behind it.

    Good idea, poor execution.

    Maybe have 6 rounds, preferably in a circle to mimic their arrangement as if they were in the cylinder of a revolver. Gotta be .45LC, of course...

    A Colt logo somewhere would be cool.

    Have an artist wood-burn a rope around the perimeter, kinda like binding.

    Age the wood into a gray "barn wood" color.

    The knobs should be wood. Aged to look old. Small wagon wheels, maybe?

    The pickguard is silly and redundant.

    If that is a shoehorn they will be sued by Gretsch......never mind, Fender owns them now. Whew, that was a close one.

    Maybe the guitar was hanging on the wall in a barn when a tornado struck?

    The tele is the perfect platform for this kind of individualism. I can dig it.
