    The original owner didn't want his looking EXACTLY like everyone else's so he enhanced the Roadworn look a bit. I like it myself. This one I will regret but I've just got too many at the moment. I got a good deal on this one so I'm passing it along. These run $1224 with a gig bag, I'm including a virtually new Fender Deluxe Molded case that runs $150. I need $800 shipped. The neck on this model reminds me of the Kotzen Tele but I don't think it's quite as large. I LOVE THIS NECK. For you guys that like light weight guitars this is the one for you. My digital scale says 5.8 lbs. The body is Spruce front and back with Paulownia in the middle. Twisted Tele neck pickup and a "Brad Paisley Special Vintage" pickup in the bridge. Nitro finish. Don't give me time to change my mind. I've gone nuts lately buying guitars and the wife says to keep them all but I just can't.

    I tried one of them. It was really light and comfortable and sounded nice. I'm just to afraid to stand behind a silver guitar...no place to hide

    That’s one of the nicest tele you have owned. Why not keep this one?

    Why bring out the rationale??? :p It's crazy light but resonates really well. I've got a guy right now sending me pics of this USA PRS CE. He wants my guitar +200. Not really looking to add $$$ but this one sure is nice and I've never owned a USA PRS before. Not sure I've ever even played one.

    I wouldn’t give boot, PRs are nice but since there are a million different models and variations of them resale is hard. Actually he should be shooting you some boot. That’s a basic PRS.

    I told him no thanks. I'm actually considering buying a regular MIM Tele and swapping bodies. There's a dead mint 2017 sunburst near me I can get for $350. I could swap bodies and have zero trouble selling the Paisley body with stock MIM parts.

    I have a 2017 mim Strat and it’s the best mim guitar I have ever owned. Quality is spot on.

    Anyone interested in just the body (no hardware or electronics)? Make an offer.

    Is it for trade or sale only?

    Probably sale. I've got this full thickness body to replace it if I decide to go ahead with my insanity. I've got the day off tomorrow and I intend to sit down once I get home from the gym and take stock of what I've bought this last week and make some decisions. Might be swapping some bodies and necks, selling a couple of bodies....just not sure.

    It is. It's got some weight to it as well which is the only thing lacking in the Paisley body. If the Paisley wasn't so damn lightweight it'd be perfect. I'm kind of afraid a new body might alter the sound.
