    It's a sad day for the modern world, now that Fender need to make Teisco copies.

    Put some dual humbuckers and a different bridge (maybe something with six saddles?) and you might have something.
    But that bridge and those pickups are distinctly telecaster. It looks like my blackguard's ugly cousin.

    The Tele pickup config is great on a Tele. On another guitar it feels limited.

    reminds me of the Shark fin from Del Ray or Teisco. Guess it depends where you were from..

    but still reminds me of the shark fin

    I like it, but it’s well out of my price range!

    I like it but would rather it had a P90 in the neck.some other colors would be nice too.

    I think it's kinda cool, but I agree with the P90 idea, or Jazzmaster pickups. And CAR, or LPB would be awesome.

    Imagine a Dyna at the bridge and a P-90 at the neck, and maybe even a Bigsby. The Rockabilly guys would be salivating.
    As it stands now, it's just a Tele that grew up near a nuclear waste site.

    A MIM version for the price of a Classic Series would be more likable.
