Different strokes I guess, because I think its gorgeous looking.. playing it though is a whole nother smoke.


If the last minute of the video is any indication of how it sounds.. have to say hard pass.

It reminds me of the guitar version of this:

Also, the points of the F holes are supposed to be positioned even with the bridge on a proper archtop design. It looks stupid if that is wrong. The whole phony violin distressing looks hokey too. If it is indeed $30k then it’s about $27k overpriced. Does the headstock have a carved violin scroll on it?

Mark my words this will end in tears, if used as a weapon it won't last two seconds, and the splinters will end up in eyes, finger nails and various other sensitive areas, it's just not structurally strong enough to be a Tele IMHO :whistling:
i was watching 'Master And Commander: The Far Side Of The World' last night, and i recalled how i'd heard somewhere
that as many if not more casualites and fatalities came from flying splinters and shards of wood than from the shot itself.
