    Welp, thanks to that “What’s In Your Collection” thread, I just couldn't resist the urge any longer. This one has been speaking to me for a while now. Bought it yesterday. Should be here tomorrow.

    It must be the color combo because Jumbo frets aren’t my first choice. How’s that for impulse? Bah, who knows? We’ll see how it goes. My 2nd Tele to go along with a 2016 Butterscotch Classic Vibe.

    Teased the wife about cancelling the long weekend getaway. Told her to grab her Muck Boots and a fold out chair instead. Plans have changed, we’re heading for the river bank instead. Lol. Nah. I think we’re just gonna go down to Savannah. Win-win for everybody!

    Here’s some purchase specific, dealer photos of the guitar:

    Great choice - I have it in "Penny" with a single coil in the neck. Can't put it down.

    Delivered today. Snagged a G&G Dlx case to go with it. I thought they’d just ship it in the hard case, but they shipped it in the gig bag and packed the case separate. Oh well. I just assumed and didn’t specify. It’s in one piece...and it feels great. Just how I like ‘em. Lean, mean and a little heavy. 8 lbs 3 oz’s. Woot!
