    Yeah, that's what I thought. In the past he has listed each amp or guitar separately but still no real details.

    I guess Thomas Leander makes a lot of amps and guitars without anyone ordering them, then piles them up on cl and does a weak advert for a pricey product?

    Well that's a relief. For a little while there I thought I was totally out of it and he was this really famous person from Leander that everybody knows simply by his first name. These ads have been running for months now, but until today they were all for individual pieces.

    Anything made my Thomas would automatically cause doubt. I wonder if he ships to southern India?

    Isn’t there a European musical instrument maker called Thomas?

    They look pretty good to me. I would wonder where the necks and bodies were made. But, if they played well and sounded good, that seems like a reasonable price. No? Why?

    Maybe Thomas is Esteban's cousin?

    I never could tell if locomotives, cats or birds were female or male!

    I can't tell you how many times I've seen Thomas and the Magic Railroad with Alec Baldwin.

    That headstock logo. Looks like something from a furniture store in the 70s

    Has anyone even talked to the guy or actually HELD one of those guitars? They might actually be really good instruments. Do you guys know how much money it costs to assemble a good guitar using quality components? I do. You’re looking at $800 and up. That’s not counting your own time and labor.

    This kind of looks like something I would have done if I were serious about amp and guitar building.

    Surely someone here knows Thomas from Austin?
